After googling dog walks near Mottisfont National Trust, we came across this pub. I contacted the pub and booked Sunday Lunch for 4 people ( plus our 3 dogs). The staff informed me that they have leaflets on local dog walks, so on the Sunday we pulled up in the car park and even though the pub wasn't open yet,... More

Fullers are investing in Romsey and Romsey District including Stockbridge and doing a great job, they now have at least 4 pubs locally. Please can you buy The Mill Arms from Enterprise

We went to the busy, new pub / gastro along the M271 and found huge portions of tastey food served at very acceptable prices, served by friendly staff. The strongest ale on tap was only a fraction over £3.00 a pint. So why is the unexseptional weakest ale (Flacks Double Drop) in the Bear and Ragged Staff priced at £4.15?... More

We visit on Saturdays mostly. But today we thought we would visit to have a roast dinner. Well I am glad we did as it was the best roast dinner I have had in ages. We had roast pork and we were asked if we would like some more veg and gravy which we said yes to. The veg was... More

what a great place to rest up for a couple of hours having done a local walk perhaps or visited Mottisfont. Good pub food and a good range of real Ales including a local Romsey brew which was excellent. Friendly and helpful staff and lovely atmosphere. A British pub at it's best in a diminishing market unfortunately!

We just had a lovely meal and a good catch up with friends. The pub has a lovely rustic charm and the staff were great. The food price and portions were very adequate. Some reviews have mentioned small portions but ours were fine. I would have no problems recommending this pub.

Myself and a friend decided to do our first visit to this pub after attending Broadlands Show. We found the pub staff very friendly and the pub itself has a lovely Oldie Worldly feel. We decided to have a Sunday Roast whilst there. OMG the roast dinner was absolutely fabulous, I chose the roast pork, my friend the roast beef.... More

A few of us had lunch here after a walk in the surrounding countryside The food was very good. I had the faggots which were very tasty but not too rich. A good choice if you are in the locality
