One of the nice pubs around the Odiham/Alton/Basingstoke area

We are regular visitors at the Hoddington Arms. The pub is very friendly, family managed, and you can eat inside as well as outside in the nice garden. The food is good, not cheap though, and the service is a strong point. We recommend the burgers for value/money, but some of the restaurant-type... read more

The Hoddington Arms has recently had a change of management and it is going from strength to strength. I especially love Fish Friday. Fresh fish delivered from Cornwall on the day! You can choose from the usual menu too, but the fish menu is very tempting and comes with a generous glass of Prosecco, served very chilled. I had Scallops... More

A well above average hostelry with very generous portions in the restaurant, good food and an interesting wine list with a few surprising labels. The menu and wine selection tends to adopt themes e.g. Spanish month and rotates fairly frequently so expect change. Large garden area with seating, BBQ & kids play area. Really good humoured service.

We hired the outside Cabana for a team meal. With the open fire taking the chill off the less than Summery July evening the Hoddington staff served us a delicious meal with impeccable service. We started with a fantastic selection of nibbles, complimented with pints of "Hodd", the house ale. Our starter selection varied from the Rabbit terrine to sharing... More

We did a Walkingworld walk (Upton Grey/Weston Patrick Circular) and decided to start and finish it in Upton Grey. Having finished the lovely walk we stopped at the Hoddington Arms for a light lunch. We only chose from the snacks menu but there was a wide range of food from snacks, lighter bites to mains and desserts - a good... More

Went mid-week to celebrate a partner's new job....and we picked the Hodd! Started by sitting in the garden for a very nice drink whilst perusing the menu. But inside the pub is lovely with a modern but distinct flavour. Loved the wallpaper with an old book design. Menu was shortish (but well-balanced) with the 'usual' gourmet burger and fish and...

Business or pleasure the Hodd is always a good choice. Staff friendly and I've never been disappointed with the food. Definitely a Sunday lunch favourite for me!

We visited the Hoddngton Arms midweek in a special offer. We received a warm welcome from the lovely front of house manager. We enjoyed a three course dinner, all courses we beautifully prepared and elegantly served. There is a great wine list, lots of choice and well priced. The waiting staff were also very nice and attentive without being overbearing.... More
