Stumbled upon this pub whilst looking for another (The White Horse) to ask for directions. As mentioned in my review of the latter, didn't like it, so went back to this one. A lovely friendly and helpful barmaid / waitress. Bright and airy with a good menu. Outside seating as well. Thoroughly recommend.

Have eaten here on a few occasions and have always had a warm welcome by the staff and a great meal. The food is always wonderful and locally sourced with a good choice on the menu. This is a popular place so need to book but well worth waiting for. A lovely cosy atmosphere with friendly staff - not cheap... More

#1 of #1 in Froxfield doesn't mean very much on its own as The Trooper is all that there is on the road from Petersfield to the A32 but it is worth driving there. We had a family lunch. The menu was diverse with an excellent choice for both meat eaters and vegetarians and it all had a distinctive home... More

The Trooper has gorgeous food - it's a sort of Moroccan/British fusion, not something you'd expect in the Hampshire countryside, but well worth the journey. Each dish is a delight both in its taste and its presentation. The only tiny niggle that I have is that sometimes the service can be a bit slow. But the food is worth the... More

So many local pubs have the same old things on the menu! Trooper was most unusual! Many Turkish style meals. I had Moroccan lamb shank which was amazing! And my husband had steak which again was fabulous! Hadn't been for 7 years! But most impressed! Service was discrete, but you felt important! Atmosphere & music all very romantic! Even though...

This pub is in a nice location and has a nice atmosphere. It is done out lovely. The waiter greeted us as we walked in which was nice and he managed to find us a table which was good as we had not made a reservation. I ordered the celery soup for starters, unfortunately and not mentioned on the menu... More

We were greeted by very friendly staff . The food was excellent and reasonably priced, £25.00 for a two course meal (starter and main) and a pint of lager. We would thoroughly recommend The Trooper and will definitely return in the future.
