A few friends and I recently enjoyed lunch at this long established village pub, it has been run by the same family for 20 years. They offer full waitress service, such a nice change from queuing at the bar to order food!From an ample choice menu we chose the following: Sticky lemon and chilli chicken £9.75, a whole breast of chicken cooked with lemon, chilli & honey sauce served with dressed salad and crushed new potatoes, Beer Battered Haddock £10.25 deep fried, served with chunky chips, garden peas and tartare sauce, Homemade Mushroom Stroganoff £10.75, a mixture of field mushrooms, sauteed in garlic, brandy and cream served with rice and garlic bread, 10oz Gammon Steak £12.95 a choice of 2 free range eggs or fresh grilled pineapple and served with chunky chips, mushrooms and garden peas, Breaded Wholetail Scampi £9.95 deep fried with chunky chips, peas and garnish.The portions were ample and tasty, hence no puds! The staff were friendly and the wine went down well too!

There is a chalkboard for chef’s specially prepared dishes and smaller portions are available upon request.  The food is freshly cooked to order and therefore takes time, particularly at busy periods. We were lucky as the pub was not too busy on our visit but would still recommend booking. Cost ££££

Please help to spread the word by telling any restaurants you visit that you tried them because you were recommended by LWL in Hampshire… Thank you!
