Owned by the successful Upham Pub Company, The Peat Spade stands very close to the River Test. Nearby is Stockbridge, sometimes referred to as the country's fly-fishing capital. A gabled, red-brick Victorian building, its unusual windows overlook a peaceful village lane and thatched cottages. In the cosy fishing- and shooting-themed bar and dining room the short, daily changing menu lists dishes reliant on local and regional suppliers. Among them at lunchtime may be dry-aged beefburger, wild mushrooms, truffle mayonnaise, fries and mixed leaves; Punter ale-battered hake and chips; or handpicked Portland crab on toast. The dinner menu might offer pan-fried fillet of salmon, pink fir potatoes, peas, samphire, cucumber and wasabi butter sauce; and slow-cooked rump of lamb, belly croquette, dauphinoise potatoes, baby carrots and rosemary jus. Outside is a sheltered and enclosed terrace.
