Recently met up with a friend for coffee here. Great service, friendly staff. The food smelt divine, although we were not eating at this time. Dogs are welcome. I found it to be a perfect atmosphere, complete with an open fire..

50 members and volunteers from the local charity Andover VIPs ( visually impaired people) enjoyed a superb Christmas lunch in a delightful local pub. Graham and all his staff are simply the best - delicious food, excellent service, lovely warm fires, what more could you want! Their meals are also extremely good value, we look forward to our next visit... More

This is a real country pub, excellent food, good parking, and very attentive staff. Recommend that you give this pub a try, not too far out of Andover, just follow the signs from Charlton.

Beautiful location, lovely staff but first and foremost a menu which delivers. We had a group party of 10 and no complaints from anyone. Food was delicious, well cooked and good value for money. Mind your head on the beams, my 6' 2'' husband had a close call ! Lovely place well known to locals, how lucky we are.

It is a bit of a drive from my village but I find it's worth it as the food is always very nice and the ale is top condition. prices are no more than the average for the area. Pub isspacious and clean, but retains character.

Me and my husband are new to the area and like look of the place, and once in side we were not disappointed it was beautiful really traditional and very cosy. It had a lovely roaring wood burner, but as it was September I didn't feel this needed to be lit as it wasn't cold and although looked nice made... More

We stopped here for lunch on route down to to Devon. We had never been before but were not disappointed. We chose from the 'specials' lunch menu. We had fish & chips & the chicken pie. The fish & chips was fine but I thought the chicken pie was excellent and came with some beautifully presented fresh vegetables. Very tasty.... More

Live just a couple of miles away from this smashing pub, but haven't visited since it changed ownership, I think about 2 year ago. Wow! what have I been missing. Great little pub with first class food and friendly staff. Had one of the best Sunday roasts ever, not including the wife's in the equitation. Followed up with a gorgeous... More
