My daughter and I visited on the 11/3/18 which was mothering sunday. There was a nice selction of starters and I had the chicken, chorizo and spinach terrine which was so flavoursome and served with the nicest tangy tomato chutney. Both of us had slow cooked roast pork which was served with 3 varieties of vegetables, 3 large roast potates and a huge yorkshire pudding that was crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. I was especially pleased there was plenty of gravy. I passed on dessert but my daughter enjoyed milk chocolate sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream which she said was fantastic. The team work really hard and Dray, Alex and David are always so friendly and charming. If you are looking for a well cooked, beautifully presented meal then look no further than the Pelham.

6 of us visited The Pelham Arms for Mothering Sunday and had a brilliant time. None of us had visited before and so didn't know what to expect, however we were thoroughly pleased with the whole experience. The staff were all friendly and accommodating and the food was great - huge portions, definitely worth the money. We will be back again soon!
