AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Garden

Set in wonderful countryside, opposite a picturesque cricket pitch, the popular and enthusiastic landlord’s simple mission statement promises ‘Good honest food; great local beers; fine wines (lots of choice); and, most importantly, good fun for one and all’. There are 20 guest ale brewers on rotation, including Bowman Ales, Flowerpots and Hogs Back. Most of the food is sourced from Hampshire or neighbouring counties, and the menu reflects the seasons while keeping the regular favourites ‘to avoid uproar’. Sample dishes include gorgonzola and crispy bacon salad; or smoked trout and horseradish pâté, toast and lime pepper mayo, followed by Graves butchers’ Lincolnshire sausages, parsley mash and onion gravy; or teriyaki cod, noodles, pak choi with sweet plum and hoisin sauce. Finish off with gooseberry, apple and berry crumble for afters. There is an annual cricket match and sports day in summer, and quizzes in the winter months.
