Likes:
Good menu for our evening meal
Dislikes:
We would have liked a choice for the cooked breakfast. We are actually vegetarian and were waiting to choose something appropriate when the very large English breakfast turned up.

The Carpenters Arms has 7 comfortable bedrooms which are located in the adjoining period property and offer quality accommodation to suit a variety of budgets. Our rates are room only but include complimentary cereals, cereal bars, bagels and pastries as well as fresh milk and orange juice available from the kitchen. A full cooked English breakfast is available in the pub from 9am (bookable locally at an extra charge) for those wishing a heartier start to the day! Our family room is pet friendly so if you want to bring man's best friend please make sure you book this room only to avoid disappointment. Located just four miles from Newbury and quarter of a mile from the Newbury bypass (A34, Tothill Services), in the village of Burghclere, The Carpenters Arms is also a country pub with a big reputation for its food.

The Newbury area has a wealth of great days out for all the family to enjoy. Experience fun times for families at Beale Park, Bucklebury Farm Park and Krazy Klub Activity Centre. Feel history brought alive at Basildon Park, Shaw House The Sandham Memorial Chapel and Highclere Castle. Be entertained at one of three theatres in and around the town or watch the latest movies at the seven screen cinema in the town centre.

The area offers superb fishing on the River Kennet, inspiring walks across the Berkshire Downs or relaxing trips on the Kennet and Avon Canal. At no cost at all you can explore Donnington Castle, Greenham Common and the Thatcham Nature Discovery Centre.

ON 14TH JANUARY 2015 THE KITCHEN WILL BE CLOSED ALL DAY AND THE PUB WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL 5PM FOR ESSENTIAL ELECTRICAL WORKS, WE WILL ALSO BE UNABLE TO CHECK IN ANY GUESTS BEFORE 5PM ON THIS DAY. APOLOGIES FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED!
