I visited this pub today with three friends, two of us ordered chicken salad at £13 a pop, the salad consisted of a handful of leaves, one tomato quartered, a couple of slices of cucumber chopped and a couple of slices of onion and half a breast of chicken. The salad leaves could be bought in nearby Tesco for £1... More

Went with friends today after our Slimming group and just wanted a Chicken Salad, on the menu was a Mozzarella salad for £12 you can add Chicken for a further £3 - Wow we thought this is either a very expensive salad or a really great one. We didn't want the Mozzarella so after consultation with the waitress we were... More

Came here on Friday, the first truly sunny evening of the year, and of course the pub was very busy. We had booked a table, which was good, as the restaurant was full I think including a large party of around 16. Drinks were fine, starters were tasty. Salt & pepper squid was lovely although quite a small portion. Chilli... More

Nice enough inside, staff friendly, seating and bar area good for a drink or watching sport. Food was average for the money, does not compare to other pubs in basingstoke at similar price point. Battered cod and chips, pretty bland, chips were the best part. Salmon, creamed leeks and fennel and caper salad, dry salmon, token amount of leeks and... More

Great dog friendly pub with very friendly locals. Excellent food but little on the pricey side for pub grub. Good selection of wine and beers and very friendly staff.

Yet again the Chineham Arms have come to my rescue. It was a 40th birthday celebration and more family than expected accepted the invitation at the last minute. The original restuarant couldn't accomodate 18 people bu the Chineham Arms stepped in. We had a great meal at good value. My only comment would be that the booker had asked us... More

We have been kept waiting for an hour for the main meal (Sunday roast), and 30 mins for a single scoop of ice cream for the dessert! I wasn't impressed at all. We didn't even had the ice cream because at that stage, me and my kids just walked out. Especially when the people next to you who arrived later... More

The pub is friendly and has some nice open fires, also nice in the summer as plenty of outside seating. I've eaten here a few times, the food is ok, some days better than others. The business park tends to use the pub quite a lot so drink prices compared with other pubs are on the higher side. They do... More
