Booked a Groupon for a midweek afternoon tea with my Mother. It was quite possibly the worst thing I have eaten in my life. Asked what sandwich we would like was met with 'whatever, just normal sandwiches'. I asked for ham...there was none. Settled for beef that was as dry as sticks and presented in cheap white bread. Cakes had... More

Stayed here with my family. Really liked this place can't understand why anyone would give it a bad review. We had a clean modern comfortable room, a lovely tender rib eye steak with home made chips for our evening meal, very tasty and a delicious full English breakfast. The food was plentiful. The staff were delightful friendly people who went... More

The food here is excellent and great value for money. Good portions to say the least and also the "chips" are hand cut if that what you want. A good menu selection and they do have "themed" evenings Monday to Thursday when order two meals get a drink / bottle free. An excellent friendly service too.

I stay in hotels at least once a week, and I can honestly say that the Chilton is the best pub/hotel that I have stayed in. Great staff, superb food and a large clean and comfortable bedroom. I look forward to my next stay when working in the North East.

The bed was comfortable and and the carpets and upholstery were clean. I honestly can not find a fault with the room apart from perhaps... More

The staff are terrible with no people skills. They look at you like you are dirt. Me and my friend ordered chips and one set was burnt and the other was anaemic. No consistency. Staff need retraining. I would not return or recommend this place

Came here on a groupon deal. On phoning the hotel I gave all what was needed about the groupon & that we wanted a double room. On the groupon this included a bottle of wine of arrival & a breakfast .. The place was easy to find & it's a little bit out the way, but we like that as... More
