Up and down experience

Difficult to put finger on what was not quite right. None of our six strong party could complain about the food - quality, cost or presentation. Facilities are excellent and the place is well presented. But the service was indifferent. Two different waiters came for our drinks order, the second not... read more

An absolute perfect meal. And a lovely place to catch up with an old school friend after 22 years. The bar is open with lots of varied options to sit & take in the live music. Wine was great, food was amazing & the conversation free flowing. Well it was 22 years to catch up on. Would highly recommend to... More

After seeing on Facebook that the Chilworth Arms were doing a new brunch menu, my husband and I thought we'd pop in. We expected it to be busy but were surprised that there weren't many people in. My husband ordered the smoked salmon and scrambled egg and I had eggs florentine with ham and we ordered a side of hash... More

Four of us celebrated together for A birthday. The Chilworth Arms had been newly revamped, new furnishings. It was great! From the moment we checked in, our waitress Gemma was a delight. She agreed with my husband a choice of starter, " The black pudding ", he said it was the best starter he ever had! We were one vegetarian,and... More

After coming here with my partner for a roast dinner and being very impressed I had recommended my family go. After turning up with them we were seated straight away and had all ordered fillet steak however much to our disappointment it was sold out. We weren't too pleased to hear this as this is the only thing we really... More

Went for anniversary meal and was absolutely perfect! The staff were very friendly (although the phone seemed to ring for a long time). Food was very high standard. Really good for special occasions.

I visited The Chilworth Arms last night with my family for my Mothers Birthday. We have visited the Chilworth Arms in the past however it is now like a totally different establishment. The menu although well written is not well delivered, I do not think you get value for money and would never visit again. I am unsure what customer... More

We have visited The Chilworth Arms on a number of occasions and are getting more disappointed as time goes on. We are regular for a drink on Friday afternoons but have found management need training in real ale. Last Friday I had a pint which was distinctly off. Vinegary was the taste. Said that the beer was not drinkable but... More

Visited with my family for a special meal on a Saturday night. Food was delicious and no problem catering for a dairy-free dietary requirement. Went for sea bass which was cooked to perfection, followed by cookies and ice cream which was delicious. Drinks served quickly although white wine could have been slightly cooler. Overall great value for money.
