Welcome to The Carpenters Arms



Finally the news we’ve been waiting to give you.

On Monday next April the 12 th The Carpenters Arms will be opening for the first time in

many months.

Doors will open at 11.30am for drinks and food to be served in the garden only, but as we’re

still some way off the warm days of summer, there’ll be a marque to help shield customers from

the worst of the spring breezes.

We all know the April weather is never predicable so depending on what it throws at us we may

close early some evenings if there’s no demand.Of course the last thing we want is for you to have a wasted journey so oncold or very rainy days give us a ring on 0115 932 5277 and we’ll let you

know the plan for the rest of that day.

Look forward to welcoming you to The Carpenters again sometime over the
coming weeks.

Best wishes, Liz and John.
