Restaurant description

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.

    Party of three - all had a starter and a drink. I chose a starter which on a previous visit one of the party had found unpleasantly dry, so I asked for more sauce and got it Tables were well separated and staff helpful and pleasant,

    Have been here many times found the food this time to be rather over cooked ie roast potatoes on the Xmas menu and the food was not very warm also the restaurant was not overly warm

    Frankly this was very disappointing- we have had family Boxing Day and New Year Eve dining with them for past 5 years- so when we were told about a poor review for a Saturday evening I ignored it. It was generally very poor, most food was over heated- micro-wave and therefore tasteless, the wine good but expensive the lads serving were dilatory- at £228 for we six and two didn't have a sweet- even then one was wrongly delivered by the lads, we're r-thinking out winter booking

    My guests enjoyed their food but my vegan starter and main left s lit to be desired. I complained about the starter but heard nothing back from the manager- the waitress said she would speak to the manager. Disappointing as we eat there quite regularly. I normally recommend to friends but clearly not for vegan!

    Quite a few items on menu not available. Asked for a decaf coffee and was told they had run out.

    Nicely presented venue, staff polite and attentive, however portion size of main meal was disappointing for the cost.
