This is the third time in the last 6 months we have visited the chilworth arms. The food, menu choice and setting is great. However the service on all three times have been poor. Very very slow service whilst waiting for your food. On our most recent visit we had someone come over to our table outside 3 times with... More

Had a table booked at 1pm. We were told there was a 1 hr 15 min wait for food and then an hour later they realised our food order hadn't made it to the kitchen. Left after 4pm!!

Eaten here twice recently and been impressed with the speed the food comes out, how fresh it is and how good it tastes. Certainly above average. But the service, for me, drags down the experience and this is a shame for the efforts of the kitchen. Example - when it's obviously not that busy, and you bring out the food... More

I love this place. I often meet friends here for drinks, a meal or just bar snacks. In December I arranged the works Xmas meal here and everyone loved the food, the atmosphere, venue and the men appreciated the decent beer!

Lovely place with great decor, atmosphere, friendly efficient staff. And the food is also very good indeed. We go often, so we know what we like on the menu and have our favourites. Also good for young children as there is a good choice for them would recommend without a doubt.

Visited here for Father's Day and whilst I accept that it is a busy day for the restaurant and pub, I don't expect the table service to be so poor. We sat outside as it was such a lovely day in a family group of 6. The food was passable but the service definitely was not. We had to clear... More

We had a great evening, food was fantastic and great value for money. We had drinks in the garden and then into the restaurant. We all had three courses, the staff was very good. I would recommend the Chilworth Arms to everyone.
