Quiet Saturday lunch

We'd booked but there'd been a mix up and they didn't have the booking - no matter, there was plenty of room and a warm welcome. There's a range of traditional pub meals and some more unusual choices. All our meals were good and my panacotta with a ginger crumble mixture was delicious. We'll return.

My wife and I plus friends took advantage of a Travelzoo offer. All well pleased even if it had been full price. Great pub atmosphere, friendly and efficient service, well prepared, well presented and very tasty food. Plenty of choice for everyone. A thoroughly enjoyable evening. Yes, will return even if there are no offers.

We were taken to the Hoddington Arms by friends who live in Basingstoke we were visiting them from Ipswich. We always go for a meal when visiting, and this time they chose the Hoddington Arms. The meal was faultless, portion size was large and very, very tasty. Probably the best Sunday roast we have had this year, and we eat... More

I totally agree with BrooklandsBill, however the Hodd pub does not need a return of old management it already has Alex who up until February was running a great pub that did great food. She should be left to continue the superb job she was doing without interference. Alex is true professional and that is what the Hodd needs and... More

Firstly I'm amazed that "certain" reviewers seem to have a problem with the new management & find it highly amusing that the same reviewers also leave negative reviews for the crown old basing too. I've scrolled through all the reviews both negative and good and they go back to last year, so surely if the management only wanted good reviews... More

shame the new owners of the Hod take it upon themselves to remove reviews they don't like...even when factually correct! Now it seems that the Hod is to be closed on Sunday's after lunch service...reinforcing that this is no longer a Pub. Why they would want to do this defeats me...with summer coming up the garden should be full of... More

A lovely meal at a country pub which, I believe, is under new ownership. A very good choice of starter and main courses; two starters were taken together as a very satisfying main meal for one of us. Very good service, a nice atmosphere and a choice of a number of real ales.

We booked for a birthday lunch for my mother in law after reading some reviews and importantly it was close to where she lives. We were not disappointed. Fantastic service - efficient, friendly, attentive and genuinely made you feel welcome. The food was superb, with all the main courses being generously proportioned. We shared three starters. Three sharing platters with... More
