Very good

If you want to have a good dinne with some good beers around Badingstoke, this pub is a serious contender. The food is great and the pub has a good atmosphere.

Nothing inherently wrong with this place but nothing especially worthy of commendation. The service was fine but the food itself was really nothing special. I had dry pork with a sort of caramelised red cabbage sauce for £17 - pretty shoddily cooked. That is a London price but not London quality: just pub grub at least 50% overpriced. It can't... More

Certainly not as good as the last four times I have been there....Is it the same owners as The Crown in Old Basing? The menus are nearly identical, so either they have the same management or someone has decided to copy each other nearly exactly!!!

I have not been to this pub for over 25 years and it has changed a lot! Service was faultless and the food was excellent. My husband had the pie of the day (chicken and mushroom) which looked lovely and he felt the portion size was very generous. I can definitely recommend the twice baked cheese soufflé.If you visit this... More

My husband and I took his parents here for Sunday lunch. We are "foodies", always up for recommendations on places to eat; my in-laws, know what they like / don't like. Booked on line during the week, return confirmation. Greeted, seated and looked after very well. Service and food, excellent. My father in-law commented that it was THE best fish... More

Delighted with our last visit to this lovely country pub. Definitely feels as if it's back to where it was. The food was great. Admittedly the bill was a bit heavy but we did all eat at the top end of the menu with top end wine to go. However, the food was delicious, great service from Anita and a... More

I've reviewed the Hoddington Arms a number of times because places change under new ownership, different chefs and I find it useful when I check other people's reviews over a period of time. We've just been back for Sunday lunch (only our second visit this year). Roast shoulder of lamb was excellent, no fat, melt in the mouth, slow cooked... More

A beautiful country pub, with a wonderful warm ambiance inside. The staff are courteous and friendly and the food is delicious. I can't fault a single dish, from the clam linguine to the hoddington pie. We will definitely return.
