This used to be a real foodie pub set in a gorgeous setting. Last night I went with a friend and had a very disappointing meal which was very expensive for what it was. I choose a Burger which I thought would have been sourced from one of the local butchers in Alresford. It was awful (processed, chewy and very... More

We traveled into the area to follow a riverside walking route which began and ended at the Bush. Great looking traditional pub in a great setting, on our arrival we had a quick look in the garden which was heaving at three o'clock on a Sunday afternoon but by the time we returned at around seven o'clock there were very...

A friend took us there for a lunch after a walk in the Alresford area and it was a real treat. Set by a crystL clear stream, the Wadworths pub was almost full on a dull, cool June weekday. There were loads of tables outside, but it was too cold, but we found a nice table in the atmospheric pub.... More

We were quite excited to arrive here after the drive down the lovely lane... We found the pub to be very busy and the garden filled with familes and kids running about. The location was very nice but the access somewhat remote. The food seems to be the main focus here and it was lacking a comfortable spot for a... More

Beautiful country pub next to a chalk stream and a regular haunt of ours as it has well kept beer and delicious food. This time we were a little disappointed as they seem to be buying cheap produce. The salad was very supermarket with mixed leaves and tasteless crunchy tomatoes with the stalks left on. The cheese was fairly bland... More

A lovely setting, excellent service and delicious food. Good value too. We lunched there today. This is the kind of pub you'd take an overseas visitor to. Very traditional, but it manages to avoid being a cliche/twee.

My husband & I wanted to treat a good friend to a nice meal. Not being local ourselves, she suggested The Bush, an old fashioned pub with lots of character in a lovely location close to river. My friend and I had the sea bass on lemon and fennel risotto, it was delicious. My husband had the sirloin steak, also... More

Gorgeous traditional English Inn in a lovely quiet setting. Well worth a detour from the A31. Wadworth's ales are well kept and decent wine list. Food was well above average pub fare and reasonably priced. Very difficult to fault.
