We had a family meal on a saturday night at the pub, although there were tables free in the vibrant main bar area, we got shoved in a cold dark side room on our own with no atmosphere, until a bigger group arrived just as we were finishing our meal. We had reserved a table but it appeared they were not expecting us as the side room was not ready. The food was quite disappointing the soup was not very warm although oddly the dish was hot and the thai crab cakes were overcooked on the outside and undercooked in the middle not good for shell fish. A couple of the main dishes we did not finish either, battered fish very greasy tasting, duck very dry and slightly overcooked. The cooked food quality just did not reflect the reasonably high prices charged, some of the family had eaten in the pub before and said it was great last time they ate there but after this meal they said they would not be going back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to the Northbrook Arms - a traditional village pub with letting rooms. The pub itself is owned by Lord Northbrook and has been part of his family estate for generations. We are situated in the idyllic village of East Stratton just minutes from the A33 between Winchester and Basingstoke. The pub boasts two gardens – the green opposite the pub which is perfect for catching the sun all day long, and the pretty country garden to the side of the pub which has an enclosed area at the bottom where children can play safely. We also have a traditional Skittle Alley in the beautiful old stables – with its own bar, space for dining and of course the Skittles – it is the perfect place to have a party or function. ... more less
