Friendly local village pub

Spent a very pleasant evening in this dog friendly village pub. Good pub food, friendly staff and good banter with locals. Would definitely return.

We were staying locally and did not want to drive anywhere. At first glance the pub looked a bit rough and ready and in need of a makeover,(due to start early next year)but the food was really good and cheap. The device was god, recommend the steak.

Went early one evening to have the two fish and chips for £12. Very tasty and the mushy peas also very nice. Enjoyed it very much and would recommend this lovely village pub. We have visited many times over the years when on holiday and have seen many changes in ownership, but food has always been great and staff friendly.

How great to find a small "front room" pub run by enthusiastic young people. We were visiting Chillington & found this pub, what a delight! Good beers, pleasant food at reasonable prices & a chance to chat to some friendly locals. We hope this venture succeeds & is well supported by visitors & locals alike. In these days of pub... More

I have tried almost every main course on the menu and I can honestly say that I have not eaten anywhere better than this. The servings are of a sizable proportion and are cooked to perfection. I have to admit that I have not tried the desert menu, not because I am not a fan of deserts but because once... More

We live locally and have visited Open Arms several times since they have recently opened under new ownership, and very much enjoyed their fish&chip meals, 2 for £12. They even did the fish grilled for us, which my wife prefers! And the chips are lovely, crispy and chunky, just how they should be! Excellent value, excellent quality - we will... More
