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

We have had three meals here since the new owners & chef took over and each one has been excellent. Lovely produce cooked perfectly and with excellent service. The prices are also good. Highly recommended.

The Hoddington Arms is a great pub in the Hampshire countryside near Basingstoke. I went there for a friends reunion and we had three children of various ages in our group. We sat outside in the beautiful pub garden where there are several tables. What I especially loved about the outside area was that tables were not packed in all... More
