Comments Off on The Percy Arms, set in the picturesque village of Chilworth

Set in the picturesque village of Chilworth in the heart of the Surrey Hills, The Percy Arms is an elegant country pub and grill-house with luxurious rooms, serving modern British cuisine with a South African twist.

Authentic Africana artifacts and photos were shipped in from all over Southern Africa and stylish tartans, weaves and leathers were introduced to reflect the comfort and style of a colonial hunting lodge. Oversized cushions, handmade Windsor chairs and animal skins strewn on the floor all make for ambient surroundings.
