Sensational refurbishment planned

An extensive refurbishment at the Winterton in the quaint village of Chiddingfold, will transform the pub into a great pub with great food. The works will include a complete redecoration and refurbishment to the indoor and outdoor trading spaces. We will be upgrading the main trading area, overhaul the bars existing counter and backfitting, with new flooring and decorations. We will also be upgrading the toilets, trading kitchen and cellar.


Externally, we will be rejuvenating the garden space, forming a new attractive seating area in the large beer garden with festoon lighting. The pub will receive a face-lift with brand new signage, enhancing its kerb appeal and attracting in passing trade and locals.


Beautiful village location

The pub itself is located in Godalming. Godalming is located in Surrey.  The Winterton Arms is appointed perfectly for a destination venue. The pub can attract the local community of c. 1000 people within a 20-minute walk, but there is a big opportunity to attract destination customers further afield. There are no other pubs within a 10-minute walk time and only one within a 20-minute walk of the pub.


A pub with huge potential
