Email this pub Whether you want to linger over lunch, dally over dinner or pop in for a quick drink or a snack, the Winterbourne Arms always has a warm welcome.
This idyllic country pub was formerly known as "The New Inn" but the origins of the building date back over 300 years as a former bakery. Although the building has been refurbished it has retained many of its original features. One can still see where the old bread oven was situated all those years ago.
We would like you to relax in this charming atmosphere and enjoy the food created by our experienced chefs.
Our exciting Menu reflects both traditional and modern British style food with a contemporary twist here and there. All the dishes are prepared and cooked in-house using only the freshest and finest quality produce sourced locally wherever possible.
