Welcome To The Bakers Arms
Somerford Keynes, Cirencester, Glos, GL7 6DN
The Bakers Arms is a pretty chocolate-box Cotswold pub to be found four miles south of Cirencester, built from the distinctive honey coloured stone of the area. Somerford Keynes is in the Cotswold Water Park and Keynes Park Beach is only a short distance away, as are the Thames Path and the Cotswold Way, making the pub a convenient watering hole to rest weary legs and replenish the batteries with a well-earned pint and a bite to eat.
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.
Dating back to about the 17th Century, as the name implies, the pub did have a bakery once, and also a shop.
The cosy bar has low beamed ceilings with an inglenook fireplace. Food is served either in the bar area or in the characteristic restaurant overlooking the shaded patio and large garden to the rear. We can cater for parties large and small, but it is advisable to book in advance, particularly over weekends to avoid disappointment.
There is a large car park with two secure and enclosed garden areas, one with a children's play area and a large under-cover area for when the weather is inclement. Families with children and dogs are all welcome.
Our food is all home cooked and freshly prepared by our chefs, using local suppliers where possible. We keep a selection of lagers and ciders, and three or four cask ales - typically Stroud Brewery's Budding, Sharp's Doombar, Butcombe and a Guest Ale.
The pub is open every day from 12.00 noon. Food is served daily from 12 noon till 9.00 pm, except Sundays, when food service finishes at 4.00pm. The pub closes at 6.00pm on Sunday unless otherwise stated on this site on holiday opening hours. If in doubt, please telephone on 01285 861298.
On Sundays, food will be served from 12 till 4 pm. Please note that our Sunday Lunch menu is our normal evening menu, with the addition of our Sunday Roasts and Chef's Choices. Roasts are subject to availability on the day.
Our next quiz will be held on Wednesday 20th November. Bookings are advised in advance in order to avoid disappointment.
