I'm a regular visitor to the Good Intent and have experience faultless service at both the bar and restaurant and staying in one of the guest rooms. The staff are alway friendly, polite and helpful and will bend over backwards to ensure you enjoy your visit whether it's for a quick drink or a weekend stay. The venue is kept... More

I love the good intent, good beer, good food, good music. I've eaten there 4-5 times in the last few weeks (it's good, so why not?!) but I've noticed on a couple of occasions that the food has been sub-par. I'm a chef myself and appreciate more than anyone what a bit of tender loving care can do to a... More

The landlord and bar staff are all extremely welcoming. Couldn't do enough for myself and my colleague who stopped for two nights this week. Rooms are very clean, beds are outstanding and the locals are as friendly as the staff, made us feel right at home The building is 16th century, so there is a little noise from downstairs, but...

The landlord and lady were very nice and welcoming. My bubbly beer battered haddock and hand cut chips were delicious and they served a very lovely breakfast the next morning too. My room was clean and tidy and they even had a folk band playing that night, which were excellent! I stayed in Room 3 and although not ensuite (which... More

Just had lunch at the Good Intent in Petersfield with friends. Service was excellent as was the food. Nice pub , not a single microwave in sight. The pie was excellent as was the Chilli Burger. I had Ham and Egg and chips, delicious!

Stayed for 1 night with a work colleague, clean and tidy rooms, could do with a lick of paint but bed linen cosy and contemporary. Friendly host, not sure if his ghost story was true but did hear a bump in the night! The Sunday lunches that were being served when we checked in looked delicious but they did not... More

The proprietor was very welcoming and helpful on arrival, all other staff equally so during the evening and the following morning at breakfast, the portions of which were large and nicely cooked. Although the inn is old it has loads of character, and some of the rooms are planned to be refurbished in the near future. A nice place to... More

Travelling over 160 miles to visit friends I was determined to find somewhere better than a boring chain hotel to stay for the night. I don't think I could have chosen any better!! From the moment I arrived to when I left I felt totally looked after. My room (room 1) was very comfortable with a large bathroom and the... More

Stayed for 1 night on a Saturday. Room was big enough to fall about in and cosy. Old building with low beams etc, adds to the character of the place. Geoff (Landlord) was ace. Really genuine fella with a keeness to keep you smiling. The room was less than that of a big chain with grey walls and souless staff.... More
