I'm still in disbelief over our recent trip here. I'll start with the positives. The garden is nice and the food was of fairly good quality (if not a little overpriced for what it is). HOWEVER... We had to wait for approximately an hour before anything arrived and when it did the order was wrong. The staff were incredibly rude... More

Dear a-marie1983, Thank you very much for your review based on your recent visit to The Chilworth Arms. I assure you that staffing level on that day had nothing to do with the wait for your meals. Everything is freshly cooked and kitchen is only a certain size which cannot be changed. Having more chefs on duty wouldn't make any... More

Dear ebbcourt, Thank you very much for your review and please accept my sincere apology for your experience on your recent visit. Our mushroom tart is very popular dish and really the only complaint we sometimes get is the hardness of the pastry. However, I appreciate it all depends on personal taste, like any other dish, and it just wasn't... More

Very accommodating for children . Drinks came quick , food followed not that far behind, broken egg yolk disappointing but menu interesting. Slightly overpriced.

Have visited this restaurant a few times now. This is a chain or similar to another we visit in Surrey. Same great atmosphere, helpful polite staff. Good portions of food and very tasty. Had a large party which sometimes always proves a problem, but didn't make a difference, food was just as timely and hot. Toilets were clean and well... More

The Chilworth is quite a grand building with a well designed interior. You can venture out into the garden seating if weather permits in the summer and the fireplaces keep you warm during the winter days. The style this place has does not detract from the food quality however. My partner, my daughter and myself visited here for an early... More

We visited the Chilworth Arms for evening meals whilst staying at the Chilworth Manor Hotel. Both evenings we had lovely meals, the first evening just sitting in the bar as the pub and restaurant were so busy, but in the restaurant on the Saturday evening. Well worth a visit!
