I really like the Calleva Arms. It isn’t local for me but is worth travelling to. The food is excellent and they cater imaginatively for vegetarians too. A large spacious garden allows for alfresco dining or perhaps you could look out into the cricket field...More

What has happened to this pub? It's had a make-over and, as a result of losing all the soft furnishings, is now so echo-y you can't hear yourself speak. Also, the bar staff don't seem to care whether you're served or not. Such a shame....More

Went for dinner on a monday evening, had to wait quite a while (approx 35/40 mins) for a salad and bangers and mash. Food was very nice though. Lovely pub and really nice staff.

A really relaxing attitude by the staff and the interior of the pub, outdoor table and chairs overlooking the village green, and the food was very good as well. If you find yourself in the area you could do a lot worse than this pub.

Enjoyed a really tasty sausage and mash for lunch in the relaxing garden. Sausages of really good quality and gravy was very generous and tasty. Good service too - ordered at the bar and food brought to table.

It’s nothing amazing! It’s recently had a refurbishment and it’s very nice inside, not much of an atmosphere in there but it is quite pleasant to just sit there and enjoy a nice pint. The beers very nice, crisp taste to it all, fresh tasting....More

This pub has just been refurbished and is nice as a bar but the food if fairly basic. It’s the type of food you would cook bought frozen from a supermarket. The only exception is the home made steak pie which is fantastic. I think...More

The Calleva Arms is one of Hampshire's best pubs serving excellent homecooked food. On Sunday, treat yourself to one of the best roast dinners around, or pop by in the summer months to enjoy the fantastic garden!
