So- be prepared to wait. In fairness it was relatively busy, but an hour and 15 mins to wait for food after being seated, and for them to forget 1 of our party of 7, then slap a service charge on without asking was a little bit cheeky if I'm honest. Good was great when it arrived, but severely tainted... More

We thank you for your review. Whilst we are very happy that you were pleased with your food, we are very disappointed that you were not entirely happy with your overall experience. To wait a little longer than necessary for your meals was unfortunate. Our front of house staff all understand the importance of a high standard of customer care... More

Restaurant quality food in a nice country pub. Very friendly service. Slightly more expensive than other pubs but well worth it. Everyone we've brought here has been amazed. Be warned: most of the dessert portions are massive.

Based on the recommendation of several friends, the wife and I decided to book our anniversary meal at The Golden Pot. We were not disappointed. Good selection of food - nice to see T-Bone steaks on the menu in this area (we normally only get to eat these on our annual holidays abroad!) The food was lovely - we had... More

My daughter and I popped in for an evening meal last Tuesday night and we were very pleasantly surprised. We had an excellent meal and found the staff to be very welcoming and friendly. My last visit to the Golden Pot was some time ago - with the previous owners and we said we would never go back. However.....a new... More

Starter: warm bread with olive oil and balsamic served on a slate, 3 half rolls and hardly any balsamic for £4.50, told the waitress and she agreed not enough bread....but did nothing about it! Crumbly bread on the table, but waitress did not clear up before serving main course. My partners main: Greek style lamb chops... very good! My main:... More

Attended an open day at a nearby farm so checked out trip advisor for somewhere to have a quick lunch. We ate simply, a mackerel pate starter and artisan tuna baguette, my daughter opted for the whitebait, and my son the home made chicken nuggets and chips. The presentation of the food was lovely, all tasted delicious, and the service... More

At a loss for lunch one Saturday. we ventured here with family (including some little uns) for a bite. The pub is in the middle of nowhere, but is less than a 10 minute drive from Alton's town centre. It is located in a really beautiful part of the countryside, and benefits from a huge beer garden that is great... More

We can highly recommend TGP. Great team and fantastic food, huge portions, so make sure you're hungry! Really good value. Beautiful fillet steaks. Nik and Fiona are fantastic hosts. You won't find better pub grub in Alton. Thanks for a great evening.
