Understood to date back from 1590, the property oozes with character. Customers using the public bar are surrounded by a wealth of exposed beams, along with both flagstone and strip wood flooring, exposed brickwork, wood panelling to dado height, all contributing to the traditional character of the building. There is seating for 12 customers plus a further 8 to the Bar and an impressive log burner with brick surround. Customers can also enjoy selected satellite sports channels via a wall mounted flat screen television. Off the Bar is a carpeted area with sofa seating, baby changing facility and ladies toilet. Gentlemen's toilet facilities are also nearby.
The main restaurant is a mixture of the original building and open to a conservatory style extension which, although currently laid to cater for 76 diners, can accommodate 100 comfortably. This area has its own bar and also benefits from character features such as strip wood flooring, exposed beams and a feature fireplace with inset stove and stone surround. An important reason for the high popularity of this venue are the expanses of glazing throughout the dining room allowing customers to appreciate the wonderful views across the gardens and beyond. There is one further area of internal seating, located between the bar and dining room and caters for a further 8 covers. An extensively equipped commercial kitchen is of generous proportions and has tiled flooring and a separate rear access. Cellarage with dray access from the main road, dry stores with walk-in freezer and utility area, a further timber dry store, both racked, complete the commercial accommodation.
A big draw to The Blacksmith's Arms both for regulars and visitors to the Island are the delightful external areas of the pub. There is raised, paved terracing, lawned gardens and multi-functional children's play area, barbecue station and a feature Well with seating for 100 to enjoy the views. There is both a roadside and lower parking area, which, we are advised, are able to accommodate around 70 vehicles and the gardens and terracing are lit in the evening via Victorian style lamps.
