We decided to eat here at the very last minute on a Friday night in January thinking that it would be relatively quiet post Christmas. How wrong were we, the Purefoy was buzzing and the atmosphere that this creates is wonderful. Whilst it was busy the team did a great job of securing us a table within minutes of our... More

Bought a deal through Travelzoo, absolutely brilliant. Food was excellent, everything on menu available and no surcharges applies. The food is just amazing, I was in the mood for comfort food and wow this did not disappoint. Started with Confit of Belly Pork, beautifully soft and moist, very moorish, main course I chose Hampshire shin of beef, slow cooked for... More

After a pleasant pre-lunch local walk the Purefoy was a positive delight. A reasonably sized pub that could have squeezed in many more tables but didn't, that still had a bar where people came in for a lunch time pint, a menu to satisfy anyone and staff that were, quite simply, good at doing their job but with good humour!...

We had some very senior overseas work colleagues to entertain, so selected the Purefoy having previously had a fabulous dining experience a few months before. They certainly didn't disappoint. The service was very welcoming and professional throughout the evening. The menu was very mouthwatering with local and seasonal produce. I chose pig cheeks with celeriac purée to start which was...

Lovely pub in a delightful location in the Hampshire countryside. Celebrated our 30th anniversary here with dinner just before Christmas and had a fantastic time. Increasingly, the kitchen here outperforms some Michelin starred (and nearly starred) regional rivals. Mains are always interesting, well portioned and frequently hearty.

After the sheer bliss of Christmas Day lunch at the Purefoy I can hardly contain myself with anticipation for our next extravaganza.......New Years Eve ! It was quite a revelation to see Goose on the. menu for Christmas Day , but we weren't disappointed, the velouté for starters was just the beginning of a fabulous journey of exciting flavours that...
