A picturesque drive out of Winchester brings you to this creeper clad Georgian coaching inn, now managed by Mark and Penny Thornhill. Their enthusiasm for all things local shines through in their warm hospitality, and the pub is a member of the Sustainable Restaurant Association. Ales include Flack Manor, while those in need of a sharpener should look to the list of 25 gins. Lunchtime small plates may include asparagus ravioli with Old Winchester cheese shavings. For dinner, a partridge and rabbit vol-au-vent with roasted Hursley pear purée could be followed by slow-roasted haunch of Hampshire venison. Round off with crème caramel with rum-soaked golden raisins and candied orange peel.
