It was slightly surreal - clearly the current climate around Covid 19 was having an impact and that meant only a handful of diners but for those of us who ventured out on a Sunday evening this was a worthwhile treat.

Service was excellent from the moment we arrived to the moment we were last out the door - enough time to peruse the menu, a great choice of wines and beers and knowledgeable staff who could advise a teenage daughter on the gluten-free options - this is a proper restaurant but with a relaxed 'pub' feel.

A great menu and drinks list don't count for anything without the staff and they clearly have a talented chef here (don't go!) supported by/working with top quality front of house staff. We will be back time and time again for top quality food - try the pork tenderloin, scallops, squid, pannacotta - and staff who care.

Very good service, well organised. Good food - recommendation would be meal size to big and size of chips way to big. Specials were great flavours. Bread and dips nice touch. Shame the door from the car park is only for disabled access especially when tipping with rain.

Very interesting menu allowing you to choose from less expensive options as well as more elaborate choices. The decor was exceptionally good with a lovely quiet atmosphere. Wonderful time had by all 3 of us (one being vegetarian who approved of the choices).

First time here , will definitely be going again , the Rib eye was amazing, as was the soup of day and the beetroot cracker from the chef.
Drinks not over priced, all in all a nice night out.

They refused to serve me alcohol even though I was only after a small wine, and with my parents. I know it's protocal and all that but the people on the other table, both young and with parents didn't seem to have a problem with being served

Great food and service. Lovely host. This was our third visit and we have not been disappointed at any time. If I have one criticism is that this time there was no venison on the menu but the truffle risotto was really good and it is better to have a changing menu I guess.

Beautiful place, great service and fantastic food. Would definitely recommend and will be returning soon. Only negative was beer that hadn't been allowed to settle, but was replaced immediately and without question.

Lovely evening. The gluten free options are amazing. I really enjoyed trying the Gin menu and the waitress knew which tonics went with each gin.

Recently refurbished to a very high standard, the Congresbury Arms is well worth a visit. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. The staff are attentive and efficient and the costs are very reasonable. There is a large car park at the rear of the building so visiting is stress free. The menu is no extensive but includes vegetarian options but whatever you order it will be worth the visit.
