    Had an epic festive dinner here with friends just before Christmas. It was perfect – seasonal produce, great wine choices and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. It’s the ultimate gastro-pub in my opinion.

  4. Emma Harrel

    The Chimney House is my new local and I’m so pleased it is! The staff are always friendly & welcoming, and I just had my first roast there last week, it was superb! I’ll definitely go back for the vegan roast or try something on the dinner menu.

  5. Rupert Kent

    Excellent food for a neighbourhood pub and worth the trip to get there. Such a different menu with emphasis on foraged ingredients, everything locally sourced – and we really do mean locally sourced. Expect plenty of ingredients on your plate that you may not have come across in the past from elderflowers, moss – so all in all the Chimney House has quite a unique place in the pub food market/ Keep up the good work Charlie and team!
