We wanted a lunchtime drink and snack and called in here due to their reputation. We chose a sharing platter for two: Koftas, Ribs, Chicken, Tsatsiki, Flat bread. If this is a sharing platter for two, why was there three of everything? It wasn't even very good with packet sauces and tiny portions. At £18 this was a rip off... More

We have eaten here before, and although the food is pricey, we have always had fairly good meals. On this ocassion, a family member ordered a medium rare steak which was not cooked to their specifications so had to be sent back to the kitchen. The second steak was hardly any better. I ordered a creme brulee which had not... More

We had a very enjoyable evening at this pub. The food was excellent. My husband's steak was the best he'd had for a long while and perfectly cooked. We could not fault the service. Everyone was very friendly and helpful despite how busy they were. We would definitely recommend it.

We had a meal out close to Christmas at the Chilworth Arms. Food was good, the atmosphere was good and the service was great. The venue has nice decor, and it really is a nice place to eat in the evenings. We haven't been back yet, but we do plan too! Nice restaurant/Pub!

Very little to recommend for a mains meal and dessert for over £20 per person NO seasonal vegetables & a limited fixed price menu. I would seriously not recommend this pub menu choice to anyone as it is over priced and not good value for money. Would not be returning to this venue.

I've visited the Chilworth Arms many times. Food consistently good. Always welcoming staff. I organised for some 6 girl friends to meet up for lunch. Four of the girls had the Chorizo, prawn spaghetti. Which was delicious. I had my favourite the Salmon with Thai dressing. Fabulous.the puddings were to die for!!! Especially the Creme Brûlée. With a bottle of... More

We arrived to find a pleasant table outside, although after our starter we soon had to go inside as it wasn't quite the barmy summer evening we had planned. The staff we most helpful and changed our tab to a bar table inside. My Lamb Koftas were well seasoned although only two for £6.95 however they were well presented with... More

Good variety of food and good service, if i had one complaint it would be as i finished my starter my main arrived so no time to rest between courses. Food... More
