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.

    I almost don't want to say anything nice about the Chilworth Arms so I can keep it a secret, but I flaming love it there! The parking is easy, decor beautiful, staff friendly and efficient, the menu is amazing but not pretentious and the drinks are mixed and presented to a high standard. It's my new 'go to' place.

    Not that great for the price and not sure why this place is always so full. Waitress didn't know anything about any of the meals on the menu. The pinot noir we chose was out of stock. The one they did have was not on the wine list and she didn't have a clue how much it was.overall a pretty poor evening.

    Good menu choice and served as requested. Food tasty though only one prawn in my prawn crab chorizo linguine ! Room very noisy as all hard furniture and flooring . Staff were polite and relatively efficient though not overly attentive as I believe they were overstretched for a busy lunch service.

    Lovely food, great atmosphere would recommend

  • ((*** 14 February 2017 by Murray Hendriksen from North Baddesley

    The servers were polite and helpful however they appeared to be over stretched because it took a long time to get served and our dirty plates were left on the table for 45 minutes.
    All the salad still had mud on it and toast with some states were burnt. Also most of the sweet potato chips were burnt.
