Overlooking the Chew Valley, the hamlet of Stanton Wick provides a tranquil and picturesque setting for the delightful Carpenter's Arms. For visitors seeking an alternative to the bland uniformity of many a modern town centre hotel, The Carpenter's Arms offers an appealing individuality.
Converted from a row of charming miners' cottages, the Inn has become a popular retreat over the years for those appreciating good food, fine wines, real ales and delightful en-suite accommodation.
Our extensive menus are changed regularly to make the best of local & seasonal produce - as well keeping our chefs on their toes! There are dishes to suit the most discerning palate; among them you may see a Thai Chicken Curry; Fillet of Seabass on Crispy Vegetable Stirfry, Egg Noodles & Thai Dressing or a hearty Belly of Pork on Creamed Potato, Braised Savoy Cabbage & Black Pudding with Sage & Dijon Mustard Sauce. Vegetarians may be tempted by a Linguini with Spinach, Pine Nuts, Sun Blushed Tomatoes & Garlic with Lemon & Black Pepper Olive Oil or a Mushroom, Roasted Red Pepper & Spinach Risotto with freshly grated Parmesan. Special diets can always be catered for with prior notice.
