Welcome Stephen and Carrie to the Butchers Arms

Hi there. We are Carrie and Steve, originally from Liverpool and Kent respectively. We have a beautiful dog called Alan who you can’t miss as he’s rather large. He does however think he is a lap dog! Although you will not see Alan when you are drinking & dining.

We have most recently been working for Marston’s Brewery for over 4 years and we were last based with them in Holyhead, Anglesey. Between us we have around 23 years’ experience in this industry. Back in Anglesey we had a 200 seater pub/restaurant and before that a six bedroom hotel with a 160 seater restaurant and bar downstairs in the lovely town of Hoylake on the Wirral.

Steve is a chef and has quite a few strings to his bow….. He has even cooked for celebrities like Madonna and Sting! He has a real passion for food and loves to experiment and give classic dishes a twist. He has produced a core menu for the pub and will keep it interesting by adding exciting specials which will change continually.

Carrie is a hands on front of house manager, she has worked in this industry for a long time. She lived for 8 years in Spain running nightclubs with 3000+ people capacity. Carrie has managed numerous restaurants and pubs in this country too.

We are both very excited about our new venture and look forward to meeting everybody if we haven’t already. We would also like to thank the community for being so welcoming to us. We are really happy to be here and hope that we can make The Butchers Arms the best it has been!

Lyvennet Activity Group has run various fund raising events too, which has raised thousands of pounds for different charities. The last event in April raised £1,350 for Penrith Mountain Rescue Team.

The Charity music fest with live music and a hog roast is on Saturday the 13th August from 1pm. It is in the same field as last year, just up from the pub. It was well supported last year and raised £2,180 for 3 charities. I am trying to raise sponsorship to help cover costs. Anyone interested in helping with this should contact me directly at

Anais, a French student, will be working at the Butchers Arms for a week in June and July to help improve her English language. It will be a good experience for her.
