Description: The Carpenters Arms at Limpsfield Chart is renowned for its delicious home-cooked food and warm welcome. Find us at the heart of the beautiful National Trust-managed Limpsfield Common, a wonderful ancient landscape to explore on foot, by bike or horseback. Dating back to the 1800s, The Carpenters Arms is a destination drinking spot which has featured in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide for the last five years, and lies at the heart of the local community. We serve a range of Westerham Brewery beers and lagers. In good weather, the large garden and dining terrace really come into their own, while the light and spacious Garden Room can be hired for private events.

We picked this gastropub randomly as it was on route home and had outside dining and took bookings. We were so glad we did, it was really first class, the staff were so friendly and accommodating, and the food was amazing. I had not expected such fine food so we were very pleasantly surprised. Will definitely visit again if in the area.

We sat in the large garden for our “released from lockdown” lunch - the food was hot and delicious - despite the chilly April day and the staff were efficient, enthusiastic and unfailingly helpful. Thank you lots of warm blankets were available too. We recommend the chicken and hock ham pie with gravy and chunky chips; the mushroom risotto; leek and potato soup, fries with truffle sauce and Parmesan. Alcohol free Becks . Will return soon

Visited on reopening day and was not disappointed - cold beer matched with fresh, tasty and more importantly hot food despite being outside.
Great service from the staff too

We came for lunch in mid December - two adults and our toddler.

The food was really great, and a lovely selection for kids too. We were really impressed with the quality, it was delicious.

Very friendly and nice staff, lovely setting - clean and beautifully decorated for Christmas.

Off we went last Wednesday evening to enjoy the re-opening! Lovely relaxing time! Thank you. Welcoming ambience, pretty Xmas tree, beautifully prepared and served food. I went for the chicken, leek and ham hock pie and my husband plumped for the turkey roast. Washed down with the good Sauvignon for me and a small beer for my driver(: so thank you everyone. Thank goodness for our local! Deborah
