The Blacksmiths Arms originated in 1820 as cottage dwellings with fruit orchards producing local cider. Traditions of “warming” jugs of cider” on the cast iron hobs are remembered to this day and the early Victorian fires and old wood panel seats have been retained to create a cosy atmosphere of old world charm. These days the Blacksmiths is well known throughout the area for its extensive and varied menu as well as a good selection of beers, wines and real ales. We have a cribbage team meets at the pub every other Tuesday, and a pigeon racing group meeting every Thursday.
We have accommodation comprising two twin rooms with hot and cold washing facilities in the rooms. The two rooms share a bathroom. A twin room starts from £45 a night with discounts available for longer stays. We also have a lovely barn which sleeps up two adults and two children, minimum stay 3 nights, prices on application. Situated two miles from Lydney and six miles from Chepstow Forest of Dean and the River Severn, the Blacksmiths is well situated for Chepstow racecourse, The Dean steam railway, The national Diving centre. Finally we have a large range of beers, ales wines and spirits including guest beers.
