Thomas Lord, the eponymous founder of Lord’s Cricket Ground, retired to the pretty village of West Meon in 1830 and is buried in the churchyard. This beautifully restored pub has a bar decorated with cricketing memorabilia and it’s an agreeable setting for well-kept seasonal and guest ales, or a chilled glass of white chosen from the sophisticated range of wines. Herbs, salads and vegetables are grown in the pub’s own garden; otherwise the kitchen is supplied by local farms and small-scale producers. A typical meal might start with pigeon, Waldorf salad, candied walnut, celery, apple and blue cheese, followed by beef sirloin, beef dripping mash, braised shallot, shallot purée, sautéed kale.
