Alton Road, Froxfield, PETERSFIELD, GU32 1BD
It calls itself the Pub on the Hill and, at an elevation of 220 metres, it's entitled to, although it sits in a dip. Allegedly a recruiting centre during the run-up to WWI, it backs on to Ashford Hangers National Nature Reserve. Inside are winter log fires, a spacious bar and a charming restaurant with a vaulted ceiling and wooden settles. Hampshire real ales Ballards and Ringwood Best are served in the bar, and the menu offers a wide range of tempting dishes - free-range chicken and pork terrine; smoked salmon and dill pâté ; Saida's Mococcan chicken couscous; squash, butternut and leek stew; and The Trooper's speciality, slow-cooked half shoulder of lamb. Among the desserts are pistachio meringue with Turkish Delight ice cream; and gin and sorbet martini. There's a mid-week set menu too.
