We visited this place for a Sunday carvery. I immediately thought it resembled a works canteen. The food was either burn or tasteless depending on what I was eating. The service was that bad it was hilarious. I will not be returning.

I had chicken wrapped in bacon with cheese and a BBQ sauce (sometimes known as Hunters Chicken) with vegetables. The portion was substantial... More

Had not booked but no problem getting a table. The Hotel was clean and staff very helpful and friendly. I had the scampi which was Ok followed by chocolate pudding which was also fine, finished with a good cup of coffee. You could not complain about the food but it was also nothing to get over excited about just a... More

We called today, the staff were very friendly, we got a table easy although we didn't book, the chef put pepper in the turnip, there was pepper in the potato, we don't like pepper, there is pepper on the table for those who like it, why add it. I don't like cheese on cauliflower, there was no plain cauliflower, parsnip... More

Steak was ordered well seared but rare, it's came out still cold and with no colour on what so ever this went back to the kitchen to be released heated. Food... More

Have not been to the Chilton for 1yr or so, but meeting a friend there for lunch last week, proved just what a good choice it was. We both had the pulled beef in Baguette with chips and garnish. The beef was absolutely delicious, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal, and it was not expensive, £6.50 each. I enjoyed it so... More

I was attending the Chilton for lunch with work colleagues. I had ordered what is described as a 'Warm Chicken and Sweet Chilli Wrap'. The Sweet Chilli tasted more like black bean sauce - not like sweet chilli at all. I questioned the server on the wrap to ask if it was sweet chilli to which she went into the... More
