See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
A popular free-house at the heart of an attractive hamlet at the southern tip of the county. It is leased from the Lullington Estate, the seat of the Colvile family until the early 1900s.
Inside, the public bar comprises an adjoining hallway and snug, each featuring high-backed settles with wood panelling. The bar and a comfortable lounge are situated on opposite sides of a central serving area. A second lounge / function room (now designated 'the snug'!) overlooks the beer garden and lawn (a former bowling green).
Food is generally limited to filled cobs, although a fish & chip van turns up on Wednesday evenings, and an external caterer offers meals (type varies) on Friday evenings. A wide range of gins are available.
Cards night Monday; darts night Tuesday; bingo alternate Tuesdays; quiz night last Sunday of month; half-yearly 'psychic night'.
A quiz team, the Colvile Arms Golf Society, a pub cricket team, and the village cricket team, are based here. A marquee is available in summer to host wedding receptions and other events.
