Good local dining spot

A short walk from our home in Hampshire and ideal for a summers evening dinner for two. Lovely classic English pub food, well cooked and presented and a nice selection of wines with well kept beers.

We went on a busy Friday night and service was very slow! Wine choice was good. Menu limited. Steak was ok....cut up which was odd! Dessert menus took over 30 minutes to get to us. Dessert was average. All in all it was fine, not special or memorable.

My family and I visit here fairly regular for food. The most recent visit was for a birthday lunch for my two year old (and us parents, of course). He likes it at the crown, he likes the friendly staff and now the weather is nice, we can sit in the garden and he plays on the play apparatus. The... More

Nothing pretentious about this place this is a typical village pub serving just the best quality food they can. The lovely food was not overpriced. Our visit was made by the warm friendly staff this is one of those must visit places just five minutes outside of the major hustle and bustle of Basingstoke. Not the largest outside eating area...

Had lunch here and sat outside, the garden is just lovely, and the food was delicious. The service is good too. This is a quintessential British pub, a really nice spot for good food and atmosphere.

This is a village pub serving great food. The menu is unpretentious, uses quality ingredients and is always beautifully presented. Try Sunday lunch (the carrots are roasted in orange juice and star anise). We have now been there on three occasions, and the standard has always been consistently high. Old Basing, you are a very lucky village.

This is one of the best places we have been to eat. The food is amazing every time and the staff are always friendly and accommodating. Would definitely recommend anyone to visit, they are child friendly and my children always finish their meals here (they are normally really fussy eaters). Can't wait to visit again.

The pub looks slightly shabby form the outside but don't be put off the food is fantastic and locally sourced. Its also delicious. We were told there would be a wait as we hadn't booked, this meant sadly we didn't have time for a magnificent looking Sunday roast, just some rather nice light bites or sharing dishes. Also best pub... More
