The food was good but we waited a long time and did not receive personal service with different wait staff asking same question. But the food was really tasty and well cooked.

This was my first time at Chilworth Arms but I was really impressed. Pleasant modern decor, service was decent enough but the food was really very good indeed. We all really enjoyed our meals and it was the first time in a while that I haven't come away from a meal out feeling disappointed in some way which made a... More

This is neither a hatchet job or the irrational rantings of a launatic! I have eaten my fair share of poor, bad and indifferent meals. I have smiled politely when asked "is everything ok?" and nodded. Paid my bill tipped the staff and left quietly! Never until today have I taken one look at my food and been so incensed,... More

No room in the restaurant so we ate from the same menu in the bar. Nothing really to say other than the food was ok, but I won't rush to return.

Visited here for lunch. Had a delicious, piping hot helping of steak and ale pie with mash & kale & honey glazed carrots. Delicious! Pub was clean and bright with a nice atmosphere. Staff were polite and helpful. Meal was served promptly. I would recommend this pub.

The menu choice was impressive including the kids meals too we all took quite a time to choose...I chose a seafood platter hubby had the beef and ale pie and the others had the duck salad and the belly pork with scallops and the kids roast chicken...

I ate here two years ago and the food was awful and over-priced. I gave it another chance last week and my business colleague and I had an awful lunch. I had fish and chips and I expected good ones at £12.50! The chips were overcooked and luke warm. The fish was undercooked. I politely told the waitress and her... More

Met a friend who was working in the area for dinner and the chilworth arms happened to be near where she was staying. What luck as we had the best pub food ever....I had cod in bearnaise sauce and she had the lamb which were both delicious but dessert of salted caramel chocolate pot was out of this world.
