What We Stand For

The Carpenters Arms is proud to be part of the Provenance Collection, a group of quality gastro country inns and boutique hotels. Being part of this family has a significant impact on who we are and what we stand for. Take the name Provenance, it beats away in the heart of all we do, from sourcing the freshest of locally sourced produce, to working with artisans whose crafts are authentic and perfected over years. We strive to be transparent in all we do. We are passionate about every aspect of our offer. And we take pride in bringing the very best of food, drink, fun and rest to all who choose us. Let us make your next experience one to remember.

What makes us different?

Something we ask ourselves every day…how do we go that extra mile? We think it’s pure passion! Passionate about people, passionate about produce and passionate about the experience we deliver. We can talk (bore you) for hours about our love of the seasons, how we work hand in hand with Mother Nature to combine the very best of ingredients into the most enviable seasonal menus. We can tell you how we seek out the very best of suppliers to match our crazy high standards. But it’s the bringing together of all these things we believe we have nailed like no other. Come and try for yourself, we’d love to knock your socks off with our unrivalled quality from food to service.
