From tge outside this is an unassuming looking pub outside of Andover in open countryside. But as soon as we entered we realised it's rather special. The menu is very extensive and includes many interesting and unusual items. If it all tastes as good as it sounds then diners are in for a treat. As it was a Sunday we... More

Visit here regularly for meals, special occasions or just for a quick drink whilst out on a dog walk, Cannot compliment the food highly enough but it is the front of house that really sets this place above all others in Andover. You are always treated with the highest standards of service whether you are a table of 10 or... More

We ate at this restaurant on Saturday the 15th October. My first impression was of a warm and welcoming pub and our table was nicely placed to look over the garden, even though it was too dark to see much at night. The menu was awesome with many choices to suit all tastes, from steak and fish through Kangaroo, Venison... More

Booked for a Sunday lunch. I chose the beef and although I prefer my beef pink I understand you can't please everyone and it was still tasty. After checking out the menu I chose to go back for my birthday during the week. I had the Venison steak and garlic potatoes. I can honestly say it was fantastic. Compliments to... More

We popped in for lunch during the week. There was a wonderful friendly welcome and we were directed to the very extensive menu. Hubby went for the gammon and me the chicken wrapped in bacon in a cheese sauce. The mains were served in a good time, were piping hot and delicious. However the deserts.... Well the butterscotch tart was... More

My wife and I went here for a Sunday lunch to celebrate our birthdays which are just two days apart. My wife had the roast beef and I went for the twin choice of beef and pork. Both dinners were super,soft tasty meat,crispy roast potatoes and perfectly cooked veg all accompanied by a rich gravy. Unusually for us we followed... More

We recently helped our Daughter & Son in law move to the area & they booked us all in for a meal to say thank you. I'm glad they chose so wisely! The location is lovely, the landlord & lady are so accommodating & chat away to you like an old friend. The menu is amazing & reasonably priced for... More

Very busy menu, takes time to chose your dish. However, once ordered and served it proves worth the effort. Rather good quality and also affordable.
