We popped into the pub for a beer and a quick meal early evening. The pub was very attractive inside and outside with lots of seating and a range of hand pulled beers. Service was good but the meals were only average. I had a burger which was tasty but it only came with a small number chips, so I... More

Fancied a Sunday roast lunch with the family. Most places were full. Ended up here. Food was average. Some of the veg was cold. We're fairly sure the roast potatoes were cooked from frozen. Staff seemed uninterested. We had to find one to get the bill, then the waitress came over and just read out the amount rather than give... More

Hi Nickyisgod Sorry you had a poor experience. We will look into the poor service on the day. I assure you our roasts are all freshly prepared and cooked in house, trimmings and all. I will make sure to chase up the chefs as to why items are going out not up to scratch. We would love to make this... More

It may not be the cheapest place to drink compared to town, but I can walk so save spending £20 on taxis. Friendly staff, good atmosphere, nice locals and nice outside seating. Bar staff are always great, I'll mention Tom as he is good fun and can give friendly banter while staying professional. Marlon and the team are doing a... More

This is my local and so i'm aware it's not the cheapest but the meals i've had before have all been great and it's within easy walking distance. We visited today for a Sunday roast which i've not had here before. The table was booked for 1pm and the place was pretty empty. There was only one other table of... More

Hi James S, Sorry to hear you didn't have a great experience. We are trying really hard to make everyone happy with our roasts but we will admit we do use a fattier cut as we think it's tastier. We are meant to be doing checkbacks on any food that goes out, but if you were outside (which I think... More

This pub has a great garden, some of it covered, and beautiful outside lighting and planting. Food is ok but not great. I had a burger which was very rubbery and my daughter had calamari which were nice but came as a very small portion for the price. Lovely place to sit outside for a drink on a sunny evening.

Great food and atmosphere, would be nice to pop to the local more often. But it's quite expensive and is more of a treat than a regular occurrence.

We had lunch here on bank holiday and were really impressed. Service was friendly and the food came quickly and was a good standard. It is maybe a touch pricey but it is the only pub in the area. Good job it is a nice one!

Meals were OK, but expensive for what they were. They had run out of pasta for a child meal! Salmon 'special' did not come with anything apart from some green beans, when I queried this they supplied a dish of potato salad - not quite what was expected! The fish and chips were good, although the chips had seen better... More

I really wanted to like this the chineham arms, I'm told it used to be brilliant. When I went, the staff couldn't have been less helpful, nothing was available from the menu and when the food did come it was, to say the least poor. It may have been a busy weekend so I'm not going to give just 1... More
