Thomas Lord was the eponymous founder of Lord’s Cricket Ground. He 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 well furnished with drinkers’ tables and chairs; 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; the result is a menu of seasonal delights. A typical meal might start with smoked mackerel rillette, scorched mackerel, cucumber and wasabi, followed by confit pork belly, perhaps, or haunch of venison wrapped in pancetta, blue cheese, cabbage, chestnut and pear.
