Unusually we visited the Furze Bush twice in one week (early November). It is a lovely country pub (with accommodation), friendly staff. Our first visit was for a meal late of an evening. Nothing was too much trouble. We chose the Duck Stir Fry. Portions...More

My wife and I had a lovely meal here on Friday night. The staff were really friendly, the pub is beautiful and felt really cosy and a dark November evening. The only negative I have and it's far from a negative, is that the menu...More

Good food, good ale, excellent, friendly service, delightful beer garden. Especially nice on a sunny summer day! The Furze Bush is set back from the road in a lovely rural location and does not disappoint in any way. Disabled friendly, child friendly.

Last month we visited the Furze Bush for our anniversary. We had - in our opinion - an unsatisfactory meal. It was well cooked, but not up to standard. I wrote a review here, stating my opinions. A couple of days later, we received a...More

We stayed for one night in this delightful inn so that we could attend the Battle Proms at Highclere castle. Although it was very busy when we arrived we were greeted as soon as we stepped through the door. The bedrooms were clean, tidy and...More

My wife and I took our son and his girlfriend here for dinner. Sat at one of the tables out front in a fairly pleasant garden. Service wasn't that great. The lady behind the bar was on her own covering both the front and rear...More

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review. As I'm sure you noticed, we were particularly busy on the day you visited, and so unfortunately this did lead to us being overwhelmed for a short time at the bar. We plan...More

The Furze Bush Inn is a very nice and welcoming pub, you are greeted very nicely as you walk in the bar by one of the very polite staff that works there. The food is very good and is nicely priced.

By far our best pub experience in England. Our lunch was fantastic. Steak and ale pie with new potatoes and fresh veggies and ice cold beer. Mmmm. Super quick service. Wish all our pub lunches or dinners were as good as this was!!

Great pub serving reasonably priced food and selection. I find portions are a bit too big for me! We go there about once a month.
