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. 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 patio and large garden to the rear. There is a large car park with two secure and enclosed garden areas, one with a childrens play area. Families with children and dogs are all welcome.All our food is home cooked and freshly prepared by our chefs, using local suppliers where possible. We keep a selection of lagers and ciders, and three cask ales – typically Stroud Brewerys Budding, Courage Best, Butcombe Bitter.The pub is open all day, Monday to Saturday from 12.00 am and from 12 noon on Sunday, and food is served daily from 12 noon till 9.00 pm. On Sunday 12-3.30.
