Pub
The Bricklayers Arms is a delightful lakeside public house, comprising three terraced cottages in a charming Kent village. The pub is situated at the end of the picturesque Darent Valley Walk. The sign represents Sir Winston Churchill, an expert bricklayer and whose home was at nearby Chartwell.
We pride ourselves on getting involved with the local community and providing a warm and friendly welcome to our visitors. We serve Harvey's Best Bitter straight from the barrel, a fantastic range of wine and beautifully home cooked British pub food. Located opposite the Chipstead Sailing Lake, we are perfectly positioned for a warm bowl of soup after a walk, a summer cider on the green, or a comforting meal in front of our real, open log fire.

The outside table had a lovely view of the lake and we were lucky with the weather too. Although there was a little less on the menu than usual, which was understandable, the choices were fine and we enjoyed our food very much. The table service was very good. Overall a great experience and we look forward to having lunch there again.

Always a good meal here, even with the current conditions they really have it nailed, staff are very attentive and it’s super clean. Feel really safe eating and drinking here, tables are well spaced inside and out. Food was excellent, thoroughly recommend the fig, goats cheese and onion tart, delish!

Bricklayers Arms Chipstead has adapted well for the social distancing rules. Menu seems smaller than my last meal pre-covid but could just be ol age. Food and beverage good and reasonable price. Only downside was the poor offering of the Charcuterie, okay but not enough. More bread than meat and and little pickle

Tables well-placed. Room felt spacious. Pre-COVID it seemed a bit cramped so very
pleasant now.
Welcoming atmosphere and excellent service.
Food also very good, although potatoes Lyonnaise not quite what I thought it would be.
We chose four different main courses we all enjoyed our meal. The men loved the
bread pudding!
First evening meal out since the New Year. Thank you

Went during Corona Virus. Lots of people sitting outside in the sun. Few people in our section of the dining room. Lots of empty spaces so didn’t feel unsafe. Food was good. Would go again.

The usual great service and scrumptious food. The Covid provisions were brilliant with plenty of space between tables and at no time did we feel uneasy. I cannot recommend this pub enough and will be back again soon
