With all the charm of an old-timey pub and the superb grub of a sleek modern eatery, the Charterhouse Arms is fast becoming a local favourite for locals in Godalming and around Surrey. Whether lining up a quiz night, looking for a relaxing ale or hoping to tuck into a seriously good meal with the family, the cosy Charterhouse Arms on Deanery Road is ready and waiting to welcome you with open arms.
Our second visit for Sunday lunch and it didn't disappoint. Superbly cooked pork belly with perfect crackling. The home made burgers were fantastic as well and I'm running out of adjectives for the lemon tart. Blooming marvellous. Highly highly recommended.
Food was fabulous and plenty of it and really warm friendly atmosphere that makes you feel welcome. Will definitely be going back and won't hesitate to recommend it to friends.
The Charterhouse Arms is a welcoming Surrey pub with all the hallmarks of a classic. Beautiful brick exterior, exposed timber beams, long wooden bar, hand-pumped ales and antique furniture in cosy corners – but don’t jump to conclusions. This is not some dilapidated old Godalming pub stuck in its ways but rather a rejuvenated Deanery Road establishment, forward in its thinking and modern in its execution. The Charterhouse Arms promises jovial crowds for their weekly and monthly events (quiz nights and karaoke evenings are always a puller) and of course it’s perfect for a casual drink and good banter, but the food is where this restored pub really sets itself apart.
The stacked, chunky brioche-encased protein packs here on Deanery Road are already famous and are certainly among the best in Surrey, with their staggering chilli burger and colourful grilled chicken burger particularly well known to Godalming locals. The menu at the Charterhouse Arms goes much further than burgers though. For the health conscious there are slender sandwiches and fresh soup, the pub-food purists can enjoy a reimagined prawn and avocado tian or beer-battered fish and chips, kids have a range of meals to enjoy, sweet tooths can embrace a deep-fried banana tortilla or more classic desserts, and all and sundry can tuck into a vegetarian or meaty Sunday roast.
