Only stayed one night but this is a charming pub. I booked it as they have lots of live music events but unfortunately not the night my wife and I stayed. Geoff the landlord is very welcoming and the food was excellent. We booked B&B but also stayed for evening meal. Only 3 letting rooms but we looked at the... More

From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. As we were staying at The Good Intent to attend a family party in the town we only stopped for a single drink in the bar. Would happily have stayed longer - the regulars were very friendly and happy to include us in their conversations.... More

Visited whilst walking the South Downs way, really good traditional pub, serving great ales. Stayed in the rooms but was very disappointed with the standards, mould on the ceiling and breakfast would not be served until 10am, far too late for a group of walkers. Luckily The Red Lion pub down the road was open from 8am and did a... More

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
