Very good pub food, friendly, welcoming.

We went for lunch midweek in May, when the place was quiet. Very good food and welcoming atmosphere. The pub is well situated, close to the Test Way; and we'd probably not go for a restaurant style meal; but excellent and unpretentious pub grub.

We had been to this pub a few years ago and it was busy and good. This visit it was nearly empty and awful. The barman was nice enough but knew less than nothing about his wine. The Sunday roast was awful and probably microwaved and the Yorkshire pudding was as flat as a pancake. The service was very slow.... More

After talking to the staff during my visit. I discovered that the LANDLADY was a lovely young women and it was refreshing to see young people all working together and supporting their boss, it is remarkable how the girl does it! Runs the kitchen, manages the bar as well as taking on everything else that goes along with her pub!... More

We went here after walking in the area, and stopped for lunch. The food was not wonderful, and the atmosphere was spoiled by the landlord's dogs running around while we were eating. The lasagne was a little rubbery, and the coffee was little better than average. If you are hungry it is all right, but I wouldn't go out of... More

An essential watering hole if you ride the Test Way. With the picturesque and unusual bridal way along the old railway line, easy to see why Queen Victoria described The Sprat and Winkle journey as just like going down the Nile. Where the old Roman road crosses the river at Horsebridge sits the John of Gaunt. Up the hill you... More

Four of us stopped at this pub for a well deserved break during a cycle ride (non cyclists!) We had a few drinks and a meal. The service was excellent and so was the food. Probably some of the best chips we have ever tasted. The lasagne was also very good, and home cooked. It was just what we needed... More

On a recent walk on the old railway line from Stockbridge to Mottisfont, we stopped off at the Gaunt for lunch. Excellently kept ale and a good plate of Scampi and Chips had us on our way fully refreshed. Very friendly, however a change of management is due soon.

Went there for lunch as we couldn't park at a pub just down the road from here. Never been before but it looks quaint and as it was a sunny day we could sit outside. Girl behind the bar very sweet and helpful but seemed a bit out of her depth. She did apologise for the wait for food up... More

Called in last week for a quick sandwich for the first time in ages. Was not too impressed with my previous visit, but put that down to the people being new. Rather busy this lunch time and it seemed to be rather dis-organised. Nice pint of cold Guinness. Was served the drinks quickly enough, but waited nearly 1 hour for... More

Stopped off for lunch while walking in the Test Valley with friends. We got a warm welcome from Tracey the landlady and had a couple of the well kept real ales, (Ringwood and Palmers). The food was excellent and good value for money, could thoroughly recommend the fish and triple cooked chips which were delicious!
