Great stop for lunch

Toilets were fine but a little tired and would benefit from a refresh, but clean and completely usable. Overall... read more

Toilets were fine but a little tired and would benefit from a refresh, but clean and completely usable. Overall a good find, will go back.

It's great to find a pub that hasn't had the life modernised out of it! This is a good traditional pub with good traditional food. We've eaten there several times and never been disappointed. We always receive a friendly and warm welcome. It's our favourite place to eat when we're visiting the area.

Visited here the other Sunday for a family meal. We all went for the roast beef and were not disappointed. The food came out very quickly, great portions & very flavoursome. We all opted for puddings as well and they were very enjoyable too. Haven't eaten so much in a long time simply due to the great portion sizes. The... More

Last Sunday was my second trip to the Old Bell and Crown and it definitely didn't disappoint again. This was our first visit for a Roast dinner but everything was absolutely perfect. The staff were so accommodating with us, changing certain things that came with the dinner so it was exactly what we wanted. Such a lovely, cosy pub with... More

My husband and I stumbled upon this lovely pub and were very pleased we did. We received a lovely welcome from the landlady and the pub has a wonderful homely atmosphere. Although we only ordered sandwiches, the bread was to die for and they were beautifully served on wooden boards with delicious accompaniments. Highly recommended.

I've not been here for a good few years and ended up visiting on a Monday lunchtime as our third choice as not many pubs open on Monday (who knew?!) There were only a few locals in there and a couple of business men but the fire was on a atmosphere relaxed. We had a steak and onion batch roll... More

We visit the Bell and Crown every few months and always receive a warm welcome and hospitality. It is a pretty olde worlde pub with a lot of character. Graham is always welcoming and stops to have a chat. The food is always excellent. We had scampi and chips this visit and the chips were lovely chunky ones and crisp... More

Ate here twice since New Year from the 'special' lunch time menu. Good wholesome cooking; lovely homemade Pies, Fish & Chips, Roast Pork etc. but more upmarket than the normal Pub grub. Sticky toffee pudding to die for and Best chips ever!! Excellent value for money, can't be beaten anywhere else in Andover or surrounding area! Efficient and pleasant service.... More
