We stayed here as part of a wedding party for a weekend not booked by ourselves. When we finally found the place my heart dropped seeing it as I thought as just a funny little country pub, how wrong I was. On entering the Chalmondeley Arms I was very surprised it is a place of great character (a very well... More

Very few pubs make me go "Wow" on as many occasions in such a short space of time (during a two hour visit). This hidden gem (you wouldn't pass it unless you were looking for it) is a former school and the owners have lovingly restored it and kept so many little details that remind you of its heritage. Nothing... More

We cycled to the Cholmondley Arms this evening for dinner. We didn't book: you can't book...I wish they would change this policy: it's fine on a Thursday but I won't come near the place at the weekend as I once got horribly caught out!! Birthday dinner: no table 😩 Anyway....all good this evening. The best gin and tonic ever!!! A... More

We spent a lovely evening and overnight stay at The Arms this week as an extension of a joint family 40th and 65th birthdays. The staff, including Jess and Fliss, were friendly and welcoming, even to our ten year old son and the pub has a quirky but cosy atmosphere. The menu was plentiful and all the food we ordered...

We visited on a rainy Saturday afternoon for lunch. Lovely cosy atmosphere and lots to look at in the fantastic old school house. Bar staff very friendly and good selection of wine and beer. Food was very good, although had the confit duck with potatoes and chorizo and there was more chorizo than duck! The food is probably a little... More

We stopped by chance for an evening meal. The menu is varied, with something for everyone and the quality was excellent. The ambience of the old school room is terrific and the topical artifacts make for an interesting experience. We will definately return!

great one night stay complete with stunning meal with excellent service. A nice mix of locals at the bar and diners and busy meant a busy but not packed atmosphere. Service for dinner was friendly but not over-bearing and the food was excellent; great portions, reasonable prices, well-paced courses. We started with drinks in the garden (Bloody Mary with Ophir...

My husband and I stayed and ate, for 2 days, at the Cholmondeley Arms. We had an excellent meal with a few friends, with our dog receiving some special Belgian 'Dog Beer". The menu had an excellent choice of local, and seasonal dishes. Prices ranged from £12-20 for mains. The decor was unique and inviting and while I was off... More

We visited with some friends staying in the b&b and camping out in the pub for the day. We did the gin tasting class and ate in the pub too. From the moment we arrived we were looked after, the gin class is a must and the food is excellent. The rooms are top class too. Can't wait to go... More

We enjoyed a family meal yesterday. The food was of a very good standard. My wife had haddock and chips & I had the wagu burger. The chips were the nicest we have ever had. The staff were accommodating to our 3 year old boy, but it is not really a place for children. It is definitely worth a visit... More
