My first visit to The Chestnut Horse at Easton was Sunday (21/07/13).

Really good food, generous portions and very good value. The staff offered a superb, friendly service and nothing was too much trouble. Even to the point that the barman (maybe the manager and sorry I did not get his name) even offered to run one of our party to Winchester Station, with all her luggage, when the taxi we'd pre ordered did not turn up on time!

They have good parking at the back, a fairly good sized garden and dogs are welcome.

Will most definitely visit there again.

This pub is a little out of the way but well worth the journey. Very welcoming atmosphere inside but as it was so sunny we sat in the nicely shaded garden.

We had some food which was delicious and from a small but well thought through menu. They obviously change the menu regularly as it was printed on paper. Food was a bit pricey but was worth it for a bit of a treat.

Would definitely visit again.

Looking for a country pub for an evening meal, I remembered hearing good things about the Chestnut Horse at Easton. Booking was easy using toptable and we decided to eat a little earlier to be able to take advantage of the 2 courses for £12 option. On arrival we were given the choice of sitting inside or out - it was a very warm evening but outside was already pretty busy so we opted for the quieter (and cooler) inside. The food was excellent - the smoked haddock on the menu had been replaced by bream which was cooked just right, and my husband was particularly impressed with the chips that accompanied his steak. We both went for the profiteroles to round off the meal, and decided that we would definitely plan to come back.

I came across the chestnut horse on the way to visit friends and decided to stop on the way back.
Very good food, well seasoned, just enough vegetables and extremely good chips. My steak was cooked a little more than I had requested but everything else was extremely good.
Service was good, but had to wait a small amount of time for our drinks (but the bar itself was very busy)
A very good pub!!!
