About
The Berkeley Arms is a great pub in the heart of Bosham. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming, and the local people of Bosham are always happy to include visitors into their cheerful circle. In summer, the beautiful garden in front of the pub provides sun almost until sunset. Wooden benches and fireworks of flowers overflowing the hanging baskets create a wonderful homely setting. In winter, guests of The Berkeley Arms are warmed by a roaring log fire in the bar and restaurant. The interior is light and tastefully simple. Good pub food is served here, with light bite portions for the small appetite. But what makes The Berkeley Arms special is the team who genuinely cares for their guests and makes sure that everybody is happy and enjoying themselves. I can recommend The Berkeley Arms for its warm atmosphere, great food and drink and pleasant company. We are open for food and drinks 7 days a week.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Called in on Saturday lunchtime as the ‘famous’ pub on the High Street had no free tables(we have a little dog) . Walking up the road we spotted the Berkeley Arms and decided to try it and we’re so pleased we did. The landlady was very welcoming but warned us that a large party was expected so we might want to order quickly which we were more than happy to do. We had a pleasant table in the bar near to a lovely open fire. The room was nice and spacious unlike some others where tables are crammed together. Our food was tasty and reasonably priced and a pint of Pale Ale was declared outstanding! The waitresses were so friendly and professional that we left a small tip- unusual for us in a pub. So pleased we decided to pop in , we’ll definitely be back.

Very friendly staff well organised and accomodating on changing times for a booked table. Meat was tender and well presented on lovely hot plates and for me the small plates roast was still too much but very good value. The mini trio desert with profiteroles and Eton mess with local ice cream was outstanding. Good beer but then it is a Fullers. One-way system in operation and outside marquee with heaters if necessary.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely comments, it is very much appreciated, (apologies for the delay in replying). I am so glad you enjoyed your roasts and pint, and found room for our dessert board! I hope we get the opportunity to welcome you back here again soon. Just a quick note, we don't have heaters in the marquee, we can provide blankets (washed after each use) and always suggest guests wrap up and even bring a hot water bottle if they would like. We have found that most people are happy with this if it means they can have a meal and drink with their friends :)

Cosy, snug and welcoming. Excellent quality food, cooked to perfection and served (in record time) by an exquisitely friendly and very professional staff. A beautiful hidden gem, totally enjoyable... We’ve been thinking about trying this place after reading numerous positive reviews. We can only add our own to all those who already praise it! We’ve had one of the best lunches ever, relishing a magnificent log fire and with the added value of having shared the experience with our little dog, who enjoyed as much as we did the polite and warm welcome, if not the delicacies of the kitchen... Great starter: Crispy Whitebait with a really amazing homemade tartar sauce. Truly excellent mains: unmissable Smoked Haddock Gratin and an absolutely perfect rump steak. Finally, don't miss the “Affogato”, a memorable locally made ice cream dipped into a sublime espresso coffee. Our gratitude goes to a talented chef, indeed! Last, b.n.l., we've already booked a table for next week... Can’t wait!

Extremely warm welcome mid week December lunchtime. Wonderful wood fire. COVID responsible. We were offered a table near the fire with menu choices of hot or imaginative sandwiches however, we came with the mindset of a Ploughman’s and asked if they could accommodate. Both waitress’s returned from the kitchen saying it was not a problem and came back with a fabulous wooden platter of no less than 3 cheeses, wonderful oil drenched salad, sliced apple and a beautiful homemade pickle plus a mug of sweet potato and thyme. Good conversation with staff and beautifully decorated establishment. We will return. Thank you guys.

My wife and I went here with our 16 month old son for lunch on Sunday and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and accomodating. I'd booked a table outside and we were given a lovely table with enough room for the buggy. Two of the ladies serving were very helpful with their suggestions on food. And their suggestions of steak pie and bakewell tart were spot on. ( my wife's leek tart was also amazing)The menu is great anyway and not expensive for what you get at all. Their gin list is monumental as is the knowledge of the staff to reel it all off at your table. We had a great lunch there and will definitely be back. I love a real pub and this is exactly that with amazing food and service to boot.

Excellent meal, I had Leek and Stilton tart which was simply delicious, my wife hugely enjoyed her steak sandwich. My wife has food allergies and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful in taking the order and ensuring all was good in the kitchen. The chef made extra effort to double check ingredients and cooking method which was well appreciated. Kronenbourg on draught went down well. Couldn’t fault it, great meal, great staff, highly recommended.

Moved to Bosham and then lockdown happened. With limited cooking facilities, we turned to the Berkeley Arms for Friday Fish & Chip takeaways and now Monday Pies. Have been blown away by the quality of the meals and the amazingly accommodating and friendly service. Absolutely delicious home cooked food. Can’t wait for lockdown to end, so lucky to have this as our local.

I cannot write more highly of this local establishment. I went on my own with my hound with dog bowl in hand. The staff are consistently friendly and smiley and when I placed my drinks order my dog bowl was automatically filled up without having to utter a word! My drink came out along with fresh water and dog treats for my dog. I ordered the Brie and home made chutney sandwich which came with fresh salad and really amazing big chunky proper chips. The sandwich was so substantial I had to take the other half home! It was absolutely delicious. Excellent service & excellent food in a beautiful English garden……what’s not to like! Many thanks to Team Berkeley Arms!

The Berkeley Arms is about a mile from the famous quay. It gives the classic Sunday roast that people want. The meat was tender, the vegetables were not over cooked, the plates and the food were hot. Sadly what people want also includes Yorkshire pudding with any meat and sage & onion stuffing even with lamb, but you don’t have to eat these! The quantities are aimed at the needs of a front-row forward. However it was a busy Sunday and so it took a little too long to arrive. The price was very reasonable. Recommended.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely review, it is very much appreciated. I am pleased you enjoyed your roasts enough for a recommendation. We can always leave off the stuffing and Yorkshire puddings, and we also do a small plate roast for those who don't play rugby!

Last minute booking for four on Saturday. Nice welcome and table. Alice our waitress was delightful and looked after us well. We all had different food. It was cooked to order, tasty, well prepared and presented by Linda the friendly proprietor and chef. Good choice of wine and well cellared beer. We hadn’t been for several years and it was great to find it on good form.

We have eaten there two nights running and are looking forward to the next time we are in the area so we can visit again. The staff are welcoming and keen to please with even the chef occasionally popping out to make sure all is ok. The food, both nights, was perfect as was the service. We couldn’t have asked for more.

An absolutely sublime meal (hand cut gammon with cauliflower cheese) and top service at the Berkeley Arms, Bosham. If you’re ever on the area well worth stopping here to eat and also enjoy a drink. Lovely people who go just that little bit further to make sure you have a great experience

We were a party of 14. We had a warm welcome and showed to our to our table straightaway. We had one long table so all sat together. As there were 14 of us we were asked to pre order which we did. The starters arrived without any delay, giving us time to settle in and order drinks. They were large portions and delicious. Mains arrived promptly and again large portions and well received by all. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, especially when a child wanted gravy with her sausage and it wasn't on the menu. All in all a very enjoyable family meal in this lovely county pub. When next in the area will certainly make a return visit.

The 2nd time I have brought a group here for lunch and it was excellent on both visits! There were 15 of us and our meals came out without delay. Fish pies, Chicken, ham and leek pies, Liver and bacon, and Stilton, leek and walnut tarts all served with individual portions of fresh vegetables or salad. These delicious and plentiful main meals were followed by fruit crumble, eton mess and profiteroles. This is British pub food at its best! All the staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful, even though there were plenty of other diners. Thank you for another great meal (which impressed even the most discerning of my party). We will definitely be back.
