Set in one of the most picturesque villages in Gloucestershire, and arguably England, the Bakers Arms is a fine example of the traditional unspoilt English pub. Although the Bakers Arms does serve excellent food it still remains a village local offering excellent real ales. The Bakers Arms was the CAMRA Gloucestershire Pub of the Year in 2005.
The delightful honey coloured Cotswold stone building dates back from 1724. The interior has bare stone walls, exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace. On one wall there is a tapestry of the Bakers Arms, a hand- woven rug made in the late 1960’s when the pub was tied to Whitbread.
The county licensing book of 1891, which gives details of all pubs in Gloucestershire, does not give a name to the licensed premises in Broad Campden. However, as it was owned by Elizabeth Dennis, who is listed as the owner of the Bakers Arms twelve years later in 1903, the reference must be the Bakers Arms.
