I'm afraid that I simply cannot recommend this pub. I stopped in for a pint and it was the worst I have ever drunk in Alton. My friends beer was flat and lifeless and my Guinness had mysterious bubbles on the glass that the staff couldn't explain. If you are after a swift pint on the way home from work,... More

We can only deduce that this is another unwarranted and unfounded review. What can i say? I personally clean all the lines for beer and ale religiously each week and we take pride in the quality of the product we serve. There is NO complacency at this pub. We have many regular drinkers who visit us on a daily basis,... More

Myself and my family love going to this pub, the staff are very welcoming and the food is amazing. We have eaten a large range of foods on the menu and we have loved them all (So much!) We travel quite far to eat here, such a great place to eat! Can't wait to return :)

This place is amazing. I heard about it from a friend that said the food was great and the atmosphere friendly from both the staff and locals. So I took the family on the off chance of getting a table for the 5 of us, and luckily after a short but pleasant wait at the bar we were seated by... More

We had eaten here a couple of times before our disastrous evening and found the food to be very good, and the service ok, so decided to book it for a birthday celebration. What a disappointment. I can only assume that the chef was drunk and the apparent lady-in-charge (let's call her the waitress) too busy chatting to friends in... More

After a non stop weekend, we went for supper at the Pot. We were quite close to the closing time for food. We were made really welcome and offered anything from all the menus. Some had steak. I had the lamb chops. The food was great. There was loads of it! Fiona and Nick are great hosts!

Booked our work Xmas lunch table for 10 and this was our first visit. Food and service were excellent and almost everyone said they would return with friends and family. High quality food and great atmosphere we will be back.

I've driven past "The Golden Pot" on numerous occasions in the past, and last night it was second choice as another pub was closed, but that is another story. Second choice? What a mistake!! One walked in, and the gale of chatter and conversation almost knocked one over!! We were immediately made welcome, a tab was set up (they trust... More

My wife and I were passing by and stopped off for lunch on a weekday. There was plenty of parking. The staff were friendly and helpful. The decor is rather stark and functional and there was a loud TV on in one of the rooms. Only two other tables were taken. The menu is typical pub food and we were... More
