“Country Purists, and no Cell Phone Signal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

If you really want a weekend away from London, but don’t want to drive to Cornwall this is great place to go, is only one hour and 15 minutes, down the M3, and A 303. Loads of brilliant walks, not far from Stonehenge, Stockbridge (Fly Fishing)Longleat, and Kennet and Avon canal. Plus There is a great beer garden, log fire, and probably Wilshire’s best sand pit, I you have couple of small kids in tow.

Be warned though is a real country Pub, you will meet all sorts, of country characters! The Jack Russell is Grumpy, but the Landlord Jerry makes up for it.

Finally if you are working in Andover this is probably one of your best options, if you need accomdation!

This idillic setting is great for lunch and a walk. It was relatively busy for a Tuesday lunchtime.
I like ordering at the bar rather than waiter waiting. The enormous log fire inviting.
The food is plentiful and satisfying. Speciality coffees are always a bonus.
Worth hunting out in Lower Chute.

Beautiful location, huge log fire, dog friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The food is great, it is unpretentious but stylish. Friendly and attentive landlord and staff. Good choice of beers and wine. In my opinion the best village pub in the area. Good accommodation and breakfast. Superb for walkers, or those that like a tranquil unspoilt hostelry and setting.

What a find, if you love open fires, pine forests, real ale and great traditional food then look no further! Find out for yourselves is all that can be said!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2011

Location of pub absolutely beautiful. Service slightly lacking, delay getting booked in, having to wait in line at bar behind four drinkers then met by grumpy landlord who seemed put out that we had arrived.
Room 2 had sink with dirty taps (which wouldn't turn off properly) and shower had obviously not been cleaned properly. Dead moth on windowsill and urinal-like air freshner not the most welcome sight.
Bed was very comfortable and pub was quiet so a good nights sleep was had.
Breakfast was very satisfying and nicely cooked.
Overall felt that £70 was excessive considering the poor cleanliness in the room and the less than welcome welcome.
