Epic food - a choice of 5 meats, plus a guest tagine, plates were piled high and everything was delicious. The service was friendly and fast. We'll be back!

I have eaten here many times over the years and have never been disappointed. Their meat dishes are always very good and so is the fish. I had sea bream last night and it was beautifully cooked, although the potatoes could have done with a bit more seasoning. The decor is attractive and the service is good.

I have dined in the Percy Arms several times and always enjoyed the food. Steaks are to die for and would not hesitate to recommend them.

My boys and husband keep going back for Percy Arms' burgers, they say they are the best burgers ever. I really enjoyed the Thai salad. We are going to try the carvery next Sunday.

We had a social commitment on a Saturday lunchtime and decided to stop off somewhere overnight afterwards to break up the long journey home. I selected the Percy Arms purely on the basis of location reinforced by positive Trip Advisor reviews. I booked the accommodation through an agency and dinner direct with the hotel afterwards. We arrived at about 1800... More

A lovely restaurant in the village of chilworth, great food and service, menu a little limited but Sunday roasts to die for! Recommend booking as very busy, nice in summer as play area outside for kiddies and nice seating, also very warm and cosy inside in winter time.
