Had a really nice dinner for five, two of which eat a plant based diet. Dannie and Luci were very accommodating and provided delicious plant based alternatives to their menu which was very much appreciated. Will definitely be coming back.

Nice pint here but I was shocked to be called ridiculous when asking the young bearded barman to top up a very short measure.More

Good Afternoon I was more than a little shocked to read this review as my staff receive many positive comments about their friendliness and welcome. I am sorry if you were treated this way. I will of course investigate this further but if you would...More

Great service. This pub has COVID precautions properly practiced by all. Small menu at present but great food. Better to have less choice and better quality we think. The best pub/bar in Alresford.

We have visited the horse&groom about 3 times since the lockdown restrictions have been lifted and we are happy to say it is our new local due to the brilliant measures that have recently been put in place and how well the staff have readjusted...to their new ways of working. A one way in one way out system, everyone’s details taken as they enter, table service and regular sanitising, it really puts its customers at ease at makes it a safe environment to have a quick drink. Really impressed by the consistency and this will be the only pub in Alresford we drink in now!More

Dear Vgoodchild It is so pleasing to read this review, as we worked very hard as a company and as a team to ensure people felt safe alongside being welcomed back when we reopened. Thank you so much! Anita Peel General Manager

Had the burger which tasted microwaved.. smallest portion of food on the plate I counted 9 chips in my bowl... the salad was old and wilted in the bun. Pints are as good as ever but the food and the service has dropped massively in...the last year and a half.More

A small group of us turn up at 945pm to find the door locked and are told were closed. Yet bar still full of drinkers. Get some proper people to run this pub not the youthclub age people who are atm.

Went in for a drink after a visit to the Watercress Line and were made to feel very welcome so decided to stay for lunch, glad we did, lovely Roast, nice big plateful, great variety of veg all perfectly cooked (nice flavours, carrots roasted) clean...plates all round. Will return soon, we think 👍More

Chose this venue before going on the Flying Scotsman. Central location near the station. Roast beef was well done (would have preferred medium but you don’t get a choice!). Generous portion, though. Lunch and two drinks each came to £50 so not the cheapest. Service...and ambience good. Parking on Sunday was free but if you are going you can park at the station, I think.More

After a hearty walk around the village and local watercress fields we stumbled upon this gem. With open fires, newspapers, and a selection of local ales served by friendly staff the afternoon moved slowly and an inviting bar snack selection finished off a lovely day....A lovely buzz about the pub which was also dog friendly, supplying dog bowl and biscuits a lovely touch.More

I dropped in here with my nephew...we were actually looking to eat, but service didn't start 'til 12:00...which was 55 minutes away. We decided to simply have a beer and a soft drink. We were served by a really lovely, young lady called Maisy, who...made us very welcome. Lovely attitude and a very friendly personality. This is a great pub/restaurant, full of beams, pictures and artefacts of local history and interest. Being a Fuller's pub, you are assured of getting some of the best ales in the UK...especially their unique, bottle conditioned, ales. Lovely bar area with plenty of seating, both inside and out. Decent menu, free WiFi, 2 hours free parking in nearby streets and outside the pub. Not cheap, but money worth spending, too visit this beautiful old venue. Pop in next time you are in town, you won't be disappointed. Highly recommended.More

If you ask the restaurant I'm sure they will answer your question. It may just be a question of giving advance notice.
