There should be a GOOD category, not just an Average / Very Good. I love the location, decor and space inside the pub, but I think the owners are trying too hard. We were asked several times whether everything was fine, no need! Staff came four times to collect our plates when we were still eating and discussing business, leave... More

Joined some friends in this out of the way pub with a menu choice to blow your mind! Buzzing little place with great staff who have knowledge about the food they serve as well as a sense of fun that certainly matches ours! The brie wedge starter was gorgeous and the scallops in ginger were also yummy except, as I... More

Visited here to meet with family for dinner in November 2016. We were recommended by a work colleague and I am so pleased we followed up on that recommendation and found this place as we will definitely be returning, it exceeded all expectations. The menu is vast which sometimes concerns me a bit as I do wonder if these places... More

We went for a meal on a Saturday night. The staff were more than helpful and extremely attentive. The food was delicious and plentiful. It has been a few years since we had last visited and it was better than we remembered. I had the leek and potato soup to start which was delicious and hubby had duck rolls which... More

I particularly enjoyed the Baileys Cheese Cake with cream. This pub is on our return to list and we will recommend it to our friends and... More

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
