Chilworth arms is a great pub with nice gardens. Food is excellent. Recently refurbished now displaying an abundance of champagne which seems a bit excessive.

After an unexpected invitation by my son to join him for lunch we had a really lovely meal.On arrival we were shown straight to a table and given a menu and our order was taken quite promptly. My son was very impressed with his smoked haddock fish cakes with a poached egg, as was I with my sticky chicken with... More

Good atmosphere, good food. Don't expect a lot of food but there's just enough and really nice and well presented. Average fare but there are a few different items. I had the sword fish ... Very nice and I love the sweet and sour taste. Eaton mess with strawberries instead of raspberries yay! Really good NZ Pinot noir. Good service.... More

I recently visited this restaurant and was taken by someone who had used it before. I have to say the menu was reasonably extensive and I felt I could have chosen several things to eat. The main meal was one of the best I have had for a very long time (belly of pork with scallops). It was served hot... More

After a hot day at work I was looking forward to taking the girlfriend here for some alfresco dining. My girlfriend politely asked a member of staff (turned out to be the manager!) if our table could be cleaned prior to eating. "We can't clean tables as we are busy but you could do it if you like....." I spoke... More

We were a party of seven with two young children celebrating a birthday. The menu looked enticing but the food did not live up to the promise. The children's meals were served last and the two burgers were around 2" wide and overcooked dwarfed by the burger buns. We complained and another two tiny burgers appeared but by that time... More

If you read the reviews, some very good and some not so good, sums up the experience. It's a roll of the dice if the service and food is reasonable. Unfortunately for us, service was very slow and it was not too busy. After ordering our drinks, we had to prompt the waitress that we were still awaiting our order.... More

Had a really enjoyable meal. I had King tiger prawns in chilli and ginger sauce for starter followed by slow roast pork belly with scallops, pancetta mashed potatoes and beans, topped off with Apple and black current crumble with custard. Good selection on the menu, cooked to perfection in a nicely presented pub. Bravo!

This place is somewhat frustrating. The menu is expensive so you expect a great experience, however i've eaten here twice in 6 months or so and both times (13th July most recent) we have all left disappointed. The food is good (not great) The waitress completely forgot i ordered a drink (twice). Myself and another both ordered the Wagyu Burger,... More
