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. Families with children and dogs (if kept on leads) 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 Flying Monk Brewery's Elmers, 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, with a Lunch Menu available from 12 - 4pm, and the Evening Menu available from 4pm.
On Sundays food is served from 12 noon till 4 pm, with the exception of Sunday 3rd April when there will also be an evening service from 6pm till 8pm. 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 availablity on the day.
Occasionally, during busy periods, it is necessary to close the kitchen for an hour or so in the afternoon, to allow our chefs to catch up with cleaning and prep for the evening service. If this is likely to inconvenience you, please ring us and check ahead of your visit.
