The food was great, the staff was very attentive and the mood was amazing as well. The fish and chips were cooked to perfection. The kids has bacon chop and burhuer and were very impressed as well, to finish the meal. We had sticky toffe...puddings and Paul's brownie with buffalo salted caramel ice cream. Definitely recommendedMore

Having been told to try this pub by a friend we thought we’d try it out as we’ve not been here before. I can honestly say that Upton arrival it was like a regimented soldiers camp! We fully understand the rules etc, but the ‘older...lady’ ( maybe landlady?) not sure? She was rude and to the point about ‘how’ to use my phone camera etc to log in.. I’m 40 not 10.... So beware of the hard faced lady!! Pricy beer and food, not the best place we’ve been too, hopefully visited on a ‘Bad’ day for them?!? Young girls behind the bar were lovely and helpful..More

Thank you for taking the time to give us your views. I'm sorry if you felt one of my staff was rude but pleased you found the others helpful. I will speak to the person concerned about how she made you feel.

This is the second time that I have been to The Chineham Arms with family that live in the area. The place has a lovely atmosphere and is clearly doing a great job in remaining a Covid secure environment. Plenty of outdoor space etc a...one way system and ordering on line. The problem was that the app was not easy to use even for people a generation younger than me. I would have walked if they had not been with me. I ordered Fish and chips, this is my go to lunchtime meal because if done right it is just the ticket, if done wrong it shows up the issues in the kitchen. Great Chips ! excellent size of fish but cooked in very bland batter a little thought would have been good here. it came with Tartare sauce which either came out of the cheapest jar or was made in house with the most horrible mayo , not good boys and girls. The real game changer was a serving of mushy peas mixed with either spearmint or peppermint such that I thought it was green toothpaste. I was just so disappointed. The service was good once you got beyond the App. Personally I would have talked to the customers and asked what they wanted in the traditional way.More

Rang up at the last minute on a bank holiday on the final day of 'Eat Out to Help Out' expecting them to be fully booked but they manage to accommodate us .They also on our request cooked us the Sunday roast even though it...was a Monday( and normally obviously only served on Sundays ).The 4 Sunday roasts we had ,including the nut roast were nicely presented and tasty. Overall good experience especially as they were accommodating with our initial booking and requests for Sunday roast on a Monday.More

Went to the Chineham Arms for Sunday lunch and was absolutely great, from the welcome to the food. The team there have done a superb job getting ready to re-open in challenging circumstances. We are moving to Chineham soon and this will be our (very)...local pub, can't wait 😁More

Went for a team lunch here and had the fish and chips last time and the time before this, had the burger; I have to say I am not the best person to comment about pub food, as I am not a fan. What I...can say that i liked the burger more than the fish&chips (found them a bit oily); A colleague had the salmon which looked a healthy choice which I will order next time. Prices are mid to high, but that s because all the companies from that area don 't have that many options.More

Arranged a relaxed works leaving do here on a Friday evening 31/1/20 taking advantage of their pizza buffet which was served in a reserved area by the bar. Comms were very good before the do to clarify numbers and expectations. The pub serves good beer...including London Pride and Amstel, and the pizzas were surprisingly superb for a British pub, with a great range of pizzas on offer. As a heads up you need to order and pay for the pizza buffet up front - but it actually saves any bother on the night, to be honest, and is a friendly, relaxed, cost efficient way of providing food while everyone is enjoying chatting and drinking. Wrapping up two and half happy working years here with fantastic work colleagues made for a brilliant evening. Fully recommended.More

We are regular diners at Chineham Arms. The menu has become very limited. No steak available on the menu. During last 12 years steak has been on the menu. Service was good and friendly and overall value is good. The main issue is that the...menu is very limited. Accompanying lentils with the salmon were tasteless. Drinks were all fine. Shame about menu otherwise higher score.More
