“A good restaurant in central Romsey.”
Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

I have eaten in this Restaurant many years ago, returned here again after moving near by. We had a table of seven ranging in taste and age groups. I personally had a starter called goats cheese pannecote, this was service with roasted garlic cloves. I found the dish bland with no flavour coming to the pallet. Main course I choose roast turkey, first for the season. The turkey was serviced with three roast potatoes along with a side dish of veg. Taste was great and the gravy was super. Vegetables cooked just right, not over done.
Service was good, not great and had to wait a little while for first drinks and the restaurant wasn't busy. I would and will return to this restaurant.

“Lovely Place”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

The décor is really nice, cosy and modern, both inside and out. The service and atmosphere is spot on and the food was delicious. I had the butternut squash and goats cheese risotto, and it was fabulous. The portion sizes are good and you really feel you have paid for something worthwhile. Will definitely eat here again.

“Nice place to spend your sunday afternoon”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Looking for a late afternoon sunday roast & not getting much joy in the Romsey area. This place has obviously had some some strong investment injected - offers bed & breakfast, wine bar & full restaurant facilities. We arrived circa 4.30 which is just before the kitchen takes a break before the evening shift - make sure you ask if they still have everything available that you might want in a roast as a group arrived after us & were dis-appointed to find much of what they wanted had run out - goes without saying. The dining hall is very cosy & inviting - we sat by the fire which made for a nice afternoon. Waiter was spot on with drinks order - great wine list - bit toppy but some nice select vino if you know what you like. As a family of 3 we all opted to the roast - try the trio of meats, veggies were plentiful & nice & hot - this is a proper roast so if you dont like your beef rare make sure you ask for it well done!! Didnt get stuck into the desert as no more room - price is mid range but quality is excellent - would we go back - you bet.

“What a find!”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

I live locally, but decided to meet up with a friend and chose the Cromwell Arms as our meeting place. As soon as you walk in, the atmosphere is welcoming as are the staff. We were attended to very promptly. The food was very good and the seating was perfectly placed and very comfortable.

We couldn't fault the whole experience and we will definitely be returning again!

Since it has been under new 'ownership', the pub has seriously been turned around and is a delight to visit.

Thank you to all!!
