Further Information

Doctors Hill is a sleepy stretch of country road around the quaint country town of Bournheath, so it should come as little surprise that this is where to find a slice of that legendary country hospitality. Instead of a single slice, though, The Nailers Arms dishes it up in ladle-loads. Well-known around Bromsgrove and wider Worcestershire for their fabulous contemporary carvery showcasing succulent meat and seasonal veg, The Nailers Arms also provides a bar stocked with plenty of quality cask ales and fine wines, tasty lighter fare and children’s meals, a cosy atmosphere and anything else you would hope for from an authentic, family-friendly country pub.

Carnivores are in heaven on Doctors Hill in Bournheath. Cooked to perfection and served alongside quality vegetables and rich house-made gravies, roasts of the day at The Nailers Arms are a heartwarming and mouthwatering experience not to be missed, as are the many traditional treats sizzling off the grill. The menu goes much further than meat, however, so whether you’re looking for something lighter (a summer salad or crunchy baguette?), feeding the wee ones (sausages with new potatoes, baked beans and peas are a healthy and popular choice), going veggie (you won’t be sorry for it with the gorgeous red pepper and pesto tart) or a selective coeliac (gravy, Yorkshire puddings and stuffing are all offered gluten-free), you’re bound to find something supremely satisfying at The Nailers Arms just outside Bromsgrove.

First time here for a Sunday carvery. It was lovely, fresh and warm. Gravy was to die for. Booked our next sitting as soon as I had finished my plate.

My wife and I eat here for my wife's birthday. She had the steak and ale pie and I had the 16oz rump steak. The pie was lovely, and the steak was tender and cooked how I wanted it. Fabulous food and service, highly recommended

Family meal at The Nailers Arms and it did not disappoint! A fab meal - we had carvery and lots of it! Plenty of options, the turkey and beef was delicious! All very tasty indeed. Only complaint would be that we had to wait 3 weeks for a table as it is so busy! Thankyou

The Nailers Arms is a very good pub. It is set in a beautiful village and offers very good food. The Carvery is exceptional and at a very good price. I took friends today that hadn't been before and they were very impressed with the whole package.

The Nailers Arms has a good atmosphere and the food and service were excellent. It wasn't particularly good weather when we went but the garden and outside area looked very nice. We will certainly return soon and hopefully on a sunny day.

Not fine dining but good quality food at a very good price. Generous helpings of meat at the carvery cut fairly thick not shaved into see through slices like most carveries and a good selection of vegetables. Other options on the menu if you don't like carvery. Desserts are large ( even the small options ) very busy so booking is advisable

We were told to sit down in the corner of the restaurant and that somebody would be over to us shortly, 25 mins later nobody had came to us. The restaurant was fairly quiet so I went to the bar to ask if a member of staff would be over. The lady behind the bar was very sympathetic and sent someone over straight away. When the meals arrived they were very nice and we got a lot for our money, was just a shame they had forgotten about us to start with.

we were truly delighted and so pleased with our experience at the NAILERS ARMS on thursday 4th august 2016, and as the staff were so polite and helpful, we were well pleased and we all had the delicious carvery and an equally delicious dessert. The whole experience was great and our compliments go out to all the staff there.

Yet another lovely visit to the Nailers on a very busy Xmas Sunday. The service was first class, very friendly and helpful as usual and the carvery was delicious, with piping hot food and a splendid choice of vegetables. You cannot fault this carvery at all. Highly recommended to everyone. Thankyou and keep up the good work. Julie

Hi This was my first visit to the Nailers following a recommendation from a friend. The location, surroundings, facilities and friendliness of the staff were second to none. The selection of food available on the Carvey impressive and very well presented and prepared. Excellent value for money. I will certainly visit again in the very near future.

We went for lunch (a bargain at £6.25 for the carvery!) and it was so busy! Glad we reserved a table. The waitress said that it wasnt usually so busy at lunchtimes but it was half term - worth remembering if you are wanting to go out for lunch.

Staff were extremely helpful. We were not rushed, despite two of our party being stuck in traffic. The variety of food suited everyone's taste and the carvery was particularly good. We were celebrating my Mom's 80th birthday and she really enjoyed herself and wants to go back again.

Don't usually order a carvery as vegetables are usually not cooked enough for me but it looked so nice I did. Definitely recommend it, beef was cooked perfectly and the veg plus the gravy was so tasty. Portions so large I didn't finish it! You must go!

Good service and huge portions. Starters are massive. My only slight moan was that the vegetables on the car very could have been a little bit hotter. They were not cold but l like my food to be piping hot. Still a good restaurant though and i would certainly recommend a visit.

The only place to have a carvery! Warm and welcoming staff who will accommodate any request. The interior very modern. The food is amazing wether you have the famous carvery or chose to eat off the menu. You will not be disappointed.

Booked this venue as it had such a variety in the menu that suited one of our group that has ulcerative colitis. Everything was perfect. Carvery was best we'd seen. Would definitely recommend and will be back there again soon.

Food lovely but carvery a little cold and roasters not crisp. Pleasant waitress but needs to be more attentive. Waited too long for someone to take dessert order and didn't get asked if wanted another drink - glasses empty. Good value however and would return.
