Our stay didn't get off to the best of starts when we arrived (at 4.30 pm) after a 10-hour motorway journey to find the inn closed and no-one available to check us in to our room. It turned out that this unusual scenario had been caused by a family crisis and, after many apologies and a complimentary drink from the... More

Doubtless the regular's took a dim view of thirty people falling out of a charabanc at their favourite watering hole, but Barry, Emma and their staff took it all in their stride, making everyone feel at home, taking individual orders and in a very commendable 15 minutes or so had our chosen meals in front of us all.

First of all I would like to thank Barry and all his staff for great few days . The food and beer was excellent. Me and my colleague were made feel like friends from the minute we walked in through the door. We even got invited to play the legendary game of spoof on the Sunday. Hopefully will be back... More

Booking was straightforward. Our request to check-in early (we had to attend a family having flown seven hours overnight into Heathrow) was granted with grace and we were able to freshen up before heading straight out. The service was friendly and welcoming. Accommodation was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed e.g ironing board, kettle etc. Food was excellent and... More

I spent the May Bank Holiday weekend at the Jolly Drover with my two grown-up daughters as we were attending a family wedding in the area. Our rooms were clean, comfortable, well decorated and spacious. The furniture, fixtures and fittings were of a very high standard and the bed was extremely comfortable (I've never had such a good night's sleep).... More

Thank you for your informative review. I have checked the heater in the bedroom and have found that the half heat / full heat setting to be faulty. This problem has been rectified and now the room does not resemble a sauna! Thanks once again. Regards Barry. More

Stayed here for one night when attending the evening party of a wedding at the Tithe Barn. So glad we stayed here rather than anonymous chain hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel at home, including recommending we turned on the heating before going out so the room would be wam when we got back. Decided... More

If I stayed closer, I'd never be away from the place! Three of us were working in Petersfield, and like another reviewer, had absolutely no wish to stay in one of the ubiquitous plastic 'chain' hotels. What a delight it turned out to be. From arrival right through to our departure, everything was spot-on. The food was superb, with a... More
