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

I hadn't been to the Golden Pot for some time but had heard it was much improved from the previous management. So we decided to go for lunch. The décor is much improved The food was very good and the staff pleasant and efficient

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.

We went to the Golden Pot on Sunday with a couple of friends. It was their 1st time, we'd been about 4 times recently. We had a small problem with some undercooked chicken which would have been difficult for chef to spot as was a half chicken, breast was ok. However we pointed it out to staff who apologised and...

I went home to Wales leaving husband in charge of two boys. They went to the pot and had steak and scampi. It was excellent, as usual! Great to have a place which is so consistent! Don't take the steaks off the menu please Fiona! Thanks for looking after them!

Stopped completely by accident whilst slightly lost near medstead. Brie and bacon baguette with a Cajun chicken baguette served on beautiful hot slate with fresh dressed salad. Absolutely superb in every way. Attention to detail made this impromptu lunch stop a winner. Service very friendly with a real home feel. Can imagine this place packed in the summer.
