Sam Small, Landlady and head chef at Mother Shipton Inn, Knaresborough, North Yorks

"First time I used Neil for art work was this year. Recommended by a friend- And will definitely use again, very professional, amazing quality art work and a lovely guy.
Even when I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted he came up with some amazing ideas.

Everybody is still talking about the work he has done."

Kate Eaton, The Talbot, Atherton

"I stumbled upon Neil about three years ago when I was let down by a sign writer for a refurbishment I was doing, and I have never looked back since.

I have used Neil for simple blackboards, small seasonal stuff, menu changes, refresh projects, and major investments - his board work, wall art, graphics and air brushing are excellent (as is a private commission I have hung on my wall at home)

Neil does not only produce quality work, but is also reasonably priced and has worked fantastically alongside my pub teams, our marketing department, our design team, and several different contractors.

I cannot recommend him enough, and I will literally never use anyone else."

Chris Mellins, Area operations manager, Marston's

"I have used Neil J Arms for the past 4 years and have used him in every pub I have managed. His work is amazing l, can't fault him. Even did some work for my best friends wedding which was just as amazing. Neil comes highly recommended from me."
