Welcome To The Bakers Arms

Dating back to the 17th Century, the Bakers Arms is a pretty chocolate-box Cotswold pub to be found four miles south of Cirencester. Situated within the beautiful Cotswold Water Park, we are also just a short distance from the Thames Path and the Cotswold Way, making the pub a perfect watering hole to rest weary legs, enjoy a well-earned pint and spot of lunch.

We are also conveniently placed in relation to The Lower Mill Estate, from where it is a pleasant 0.7 mile stroll through Somerford Keynes Village to our door.

Our cosy bar has low beamed ceilings and an open, inglenook fireplace. In the warm weather you can enjoy your drinks and meals in one of our two spacious beer gardens. Both are secure and enclosed, one with a children's play area.

Families and furry friends are welcome – this is a country pub after all
