Love this pub. Met and shown around by the very friendly manager, then went for short walk around the lovely town before returning for fab & fairly-priced bacon, brie & cranberry paninis and salad. Enjoyed the real ale selection! In the afternoon, enjoyed the Edward Thomas walk with fab views from Mutton Hill from the pub door. What a fab... More

I booked 2 nights here while working nearby in liphook. When I checked in I was greeted by a very friendly gentleman working behind the bar(the manager). He then showed me to my room, wow! A narrow staircase and low ceilings followed by a step down into my room. My room was spacious and clean the bed nice and comfy.... More

I have to admit that I haven't stayed at many pubs before, but if this one is typical then never again. Booked because the rating was 8.4 on Booking.com but definitely not that standard. The entrance to the bedrooms is a heath & safety nightmare. Very steep steps and you can't stand upright on the way to your room unless... More

Welcoming, vibrant pub and restaurant, friendly staff and fantastic atmosphere. Great food, well kept beer and live music, comfortable room with breakfast at very reasonable prices. Our first visit to Petersfield but we will definitely be going back.

Only stayed one night but this is a charming pub. I booked it as they have lots of live music events but unfortunately not the night my wife and I stayed. Geoff the landlord is very welcoming and the food was excellent. We booked B&B but also stayed for evening meal. Only 3 letting rooms but we looked at the... More

From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. As we were staying at The Good Intent to attend a family party in the town we only stopped for a single drink in the bar. Would happily have stayed longer - the regulars were very friendly and happy to include us in their conversations.... More

Visited whilst walking the South Downs way, really good traditional pub, serving great ales. Stayed in the rooms but was very disappointed with the standards, mould on the ceiling and breakfast would not be served until 10am, far too late for a group of walkers. Luckily The Red Lion pub down the road was open from 8am and did a... More

I'm a regular visitor to the Good Intent and have experience faultless service at both the bar and restaurant and staying in one of the guest rooms. The staff are alway friendly, polite and helpful and will bend over backwards to ensure you enjoy your visit whether it's for a quick drink or a weekend stay. The venue is kept... More
