We booked for a family supper to enjoy some live music. We were greeted warmly and we're impressed by how cheerful and hard working the staff were on a very hot July evening. The menu was simple but interesting and service was fast. The live music was excellent and we stayed far longer than we anticipated. We will definitely pay... More

We had Sunday lunch here as I knew Joe Mannah had moved from The Queen Victoria in Shalford with his excellent staff including Abby, Sophie and especially George Jennings. The food did not disappoint - absolutely amazing melt in your mouth Sunday roast! Service was impeccable, the beer was excellent and this is a perfect spot on a sunny day... More

We were really sad when Joe left the Queen Vic and had been meaning to get to the Charterhouse sooner for our fix of Scampi. Is it possible it was even better than I remember it was? Absolutely delicious and we won't leave it as long to come back again!

On a very wet and cold day we decided to have lunch out at a local pub. We chose the Charterhouse Arms. The landlady had already put the central heating on, which was very welcome. We ordered drinks at the bar and food from the table. We both chose a burger, one Texas and one classic. The food was very... More

We stopped in for the third time for Sunday lunch, being locals and wanting to support local business. Again, we loved the food (shame Joe has dropped the triple cooked chips that he rocked at the Queen Vic). Both had chilli burger note: there is no sloppy chilli con carne on the burger, there is chilli in the meat, much... More

Visited last week on bongo night apparently, with a loud bongo player dominating the room and the crowd clapping along. Part of an African themed week. Wait staff are friendly and hard working. They don't take American Express (and don't mention it when an Amex card is used for a tab). Ambiance has slid further under new ownership with blonde... More

Been in a few times since the change of ownership, looks very good inside, interesting menu, good range of beers and drinks and not too expensive. Plenty of week day events going on there, quizz night, poker night (!), music events now and again.Well attended pub, trying hard to attract and be family orientated and pub for the neibourhood.
