Our "Cotton Clubbers" team of 6 had walked all through the night on Saturday 13th through Sunday 14th raising thousands of pounds for Breast Cancer research, followed by a day in the spa on Monday...more friends joined us for dinner and we came to The Chilworth Arms for a celebratory meal. The menu was great, lots of choice to suit... More

Awful food, items missing off the platter but full price charged, rude & confrontational staff, no accountability, no appology, in experienced management...... terrible experience! I noticed that Tripadvisor had removed my previously posted experience so the above is a brief recap of my previous review. Let's see if this review gets removed!

We took our daughter and her family for Sunday lunch. Granted it was 1pm but restaurants are supposed to be able to cope with a busy lunchtime service are they not? We waited a long while to place our order. The adults had roasts and the younger members did not. Part of my roast beef was inedible - very chewy... More

First time to the Chilworth Arms long since renamed from the Clump Inn that I can remember. I was told by our friends that a meal was overrall more expensive than I would usually pay . That was correct but the food was wonderful and the servers very attentive. This venue was very full for a Thursday with little room... More

Looking for somewhere for lunch, driving past and noticed the full car park. There was a free table in the restaurant (lucky as it was busy) and a superb lunch. Quickly served, simple food from a wide ranging menu, all cooked to order. Not expensive either - £50 for two two courses and coffee). Well done...a keeper. The picture says... More

We've visited here a lot over the years, for dinner and breakfast. It's a really nice pub in a lovely setting, and with a decent appetising menu. However, the last two times we have been, the food quality has been average and nothing more. No really bad specifics (some ingredients missing, which was rectified when we mentioned it), but just...

I went to the chilworth arms with a group of friends for a Sunday lunch. The staff were efficient and friendly and the food was delicious. The new cocktail menu is fantastic with so much to choose from whether you like sweet, dry or in between. The pub has a very modern interior and has a really nice feel to... More
