“Great food, great country pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Had a great afternoon in the pub. Extensive menu. The food was excellent and in large portions. The steak and ale pie was lovely and the fish and chips was excellent. The desserts were excellent too. A family friendly pub. We were made most welcome by the owner. Would certainly visit again.

“Perfect country pub with friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

The Chafford Arms is a perfect country pub serving excellent food and well kept beer. We found an extensive menu with several vegetarian choices. Everything is to a first class standard - the food, the friendly service and convivial atmosphere. Besides the main bar, there is a large garden with nice views. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here.

“Great food, lots of choice, friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

The Chafford Arms is a pretty, quirky, traditional pub in beautiful surroundings. The menu is varied. One of my wife's favourite meals is macaroni cheese, which is often not on offer in pubs. The Chafford Arms not only serve this but my wife had to admit it was better than her own version! The desserts are home made and delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful and I would not hesitate in recommending this pub to anyone - it is well worth a visit.

“Great country pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Just visited this pub for the first time on Saturday. I ordered BBQ spare ribs and my partner ordered the smoked haddock fish cakes from the specials board. We were both so impressed with our meals that we decided to have desserts too. Something we don't normally do. I had gypsy tart and my partner had banoffee pie. Both excellent. We sat in the garden, as it was a lovely day. Even though it was busy the tables were spaced out enough to have your own privacy. What a great view.

Clean toilets too. My partner says there are saucy postcards in the gents too.

We will definitely be returning as we live locally.

Dropped in for a meal and a pint while visiting family in the village. Good food as always... Look forward to the next trip in a year or two!
