Boasting the picturesque Spring Copse Park as its backdrop, The Chilworth Arms is an idyllic countryside retreat, serving modern British pub food. Open fires, tweed carpets, rustic wooden tables and a copper-fronted bar ensure there are plenty of cosy spaces to enjoy a drink or a hearty meal.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Chilworth Arms menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest available ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include king prawn, crab and chorizo linguine, or spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Chilworth Arms bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and eclectic sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

The Chilworth Arms is just an 8-minute drive from Chandlers Ford Rail Station.

    Restaurant was cold, service slow & foods when we got it mediocre. My burger was cold, the chunky chips were fairly raw, one of the gammon steaks was tough. The vegetarian pie was delicious I'm told, served with winter veg. We didn't stay for desert.

    Great Buzz
    Unfortunately slow service and average food for the price. Good place for a drink with friends.

    This was very disappointing - we used to eat here a lot, bt a few years ago on my mothers birthday we had such slow service that we have not been back. However with the 25% discount through book a table we decided to give it a go for my birthday, the staff knew it was my birthday and really managed to make this a very un-special occasion!

    The service was slow - there is a difference between leisurely and slow and this was slow.

    Food was OK, but a bit bland, the cocktail one of my party ordered was not available - they did nt have the ingredients.

    Puds were nice.

    without the discount our meal would have come to £114 for 3 people - definitely not worth this amount -we wont be going back!!

    Fabulous selection of dishes and all that was ordered was beautifully presented and cooked perfectly. The flavours were second to none and top end ingredients were clearly used.
