CHERITON, Alresford, SO24 0QQ
Known almost universally as The Pots, this pub used to be a farmhouse and home to the head gardener of nearby Avington Park. These days, local beer drinkers know the pub well for its award-winning Flower Pots Bitter and Goodens Gold, brewed across the car park in the microbrewery. Simple home-made food includes hearty filled baps, toasted sandwiches, jacket potatoes, cheese and meat ploughman's and different hotpots - chilli con carne, lamb and apricot, steak and ale, spicy mixed bean. A large, safe garden, with a covered patio, allows children to let off steam (under 14s are not allowed in the bar). The pub holds a beer festival in August.
