“A proper little town pub”

Very good unfussy pub with plenty of atmosphere. For those of you who enjoy clean sharp lines and a contemporary feel this may not appeal but for those who want a lovely cost pub that probably looks the same as it did 50 years ago this is a little gem. I appreciate a pub that is confident with what it does and is comfortable to be what it was always meant to be. A pub with an old fashioned patena with some good ale and friendly staff does it for me. It feels real and a bit knocked about but who cares...it was a lovely place to enjoy a couple of local beers.

Sadly only had time for one, but will return.
Superb selection of at least 8 cask beers on, friendly service and a nice "old" pub.

Having been to a few others on this road, it is the only one I will go back to...

Review title says it all. Be nice if the drinks were a bit cheaper, but they do have a good selection.

Have been to the Allied Arms a couple of times recently for drinks before dinner and both times I have been shocked at the prices of the drinks. Almost £15 for a pint of cider and 2 small bottles of beer (the IPA ran out and the barman offered 2 bottles instead, without first warning of the price).
Enclosed outside terrace is ok if you don't mind the smokers.
All in all this is not worth the excessive drinks premium.

Popped into Allied Arms for a quick pint. Friendly staff, cozy atmosphere and a great pint! Enjoyed chatting with some of the regulars.
