Review of Chilgrove by clare on April 21st, 2009
I visited the Fish House for a celebration dinner as had been watching the hype for months. However what we ate was in a word VERY MEDIOCRE...my friends and i gave it around 3 of 10. The service was impeccable and the front of house manager, Paul, was fantastic. Just a shame the food didnt live up to it. The decor, despite the reported 4.2 million spent on it, was no better than any gastro pub in the area. Certainly wont be going back.
Review of Chilgrove by Karalie Hillyer on March 19th, 2007
We lived in Chilgrove as the war ended, in a cottage then known as Underwood Cottage (now, I believe, Plantation Cottage.) No running water, tilly lamps, the glorious beech wood behind, and the hamlet which had the pub, blacksmith, (I used to ride across the Downs with him, delivering letters. He on Laddie, and I on laddie's mum, Topsy. His family lived in the cottage on the R.H.end of the White Horse, and his forge was opposite. The family Renwick farmed their dairy herd, milked by Landgirls. My brother and I ran wild over the Downs!Glorious happy days!
