The Hen and Chicken, Upper Froyle

Tried this pub today after getting a voucher form the carvery. I was pleasantly surprised. The pub is large and near the A31, but the garden is quiet and secluded. The carvery was great value (the same price as a Toby), but the quality was superior and the service was cheerful. Will definitely go back.

The Victoria and Albert, Netherhampton

Called on a Sunday evening in June. Sat in the quiet garden until it got a bit chilly, then retired inside to sit by the fire! The landlady told us she was reluctant to put it out as people kept having to use it to dry out! Food was tasty and hot, and portions reasonable size. Beer was good. We were the only people in for a while, and the landlady sat and chatted. We were made to feel very welcome, and ,no, we didn't take any books home!

The Bat and Ball Inn, Breamore

Called in for lunch, as Dad remembers staying here to fish the Avon some 60 years ago.
Was fairly busy, but both barmaids/waitress were friendly and polite. Food was very good, s&k pie was lovely and BBQ ribs delicious. Prices were reasonable. There is a senior citizens menu at a reduced price every weekday lunchtime. Would go back if in the area.

The Flowerpots Inn, Cheriton

Back again for one of our too infrequent visits. Only just made it before lunchtime closing after a slight problem with map reading meant a major detour!! The beer was still fantastic and the ploughmans was delicious. We had to sit in the sunshine for a while before we could get going again. Can we afford a house in Cheriton???

The White Hart, Arundel

Called in when passing on Friday, in the pouring rain. Wasn't too sure when we saw the tapas menu. Should have worried, food was fantastic, fresh and hot. The hand cut chips were just that, and so hot you had to be careful not to burn your mouth. Prices were very reasonable and the barmaid (?landlady) was lovely. Stop here if you want something a bit different from usual pub grub!

The George Inn, Eartham

Found this by accident yesterday, had the best pub lunch ever!!! Rump sandwich with goats cheese, sounds awful tasted like heaven!!! Club sandwich huge and succulent. Even the salad dressing was gorgeous!! Eton Mess was worth travelling 40 miles for! Cocktails served with a smile and the beers good too. Didn't even have a problem with the loo.
Told the landlord we would be back, and we will!!!

The White Hart, Hook

New landlord and lady, new coat of paint and a new warm welcome.
Food was standard pub fare, but was hot and served with a smile. Staff seemed happy, beer was good and the White Hart feels like it might be finding it's place again!

The Coach and Horses, Rotherwick

Had another lovely session in the little garden after a brisk walk.
Food is fresh, local and hot, and although not 'gourmet', it filled an empty tummy. The beer was good as usual and the welcome was warm and friendly. There's a house for sale 4 doors down-now there's a thought...........

The Coach and Horses, Rotherwick

Went tonight for the first time since it changed hands. The landlord and lady were very welcoming and the food was reasonably priced, home cooked and delicious. Sat in the garden with lovely views over the fields, listening to the bell ringers practice in the church opposite and it was very nearly perfect. Oh and the beers good too!!!

The Flowerpots Inn, Cheriton

Visited Yesterday and sat in the sun in the garden. Between us, tried Best, Perridge and Goodens Gold- all brilliant.
Bar staff were friendly and no problems with opening, despite us arriving at 11.30 and the offical time was 12, we were still served immediately. Sandwiches were good and other food looked delicious too.
Took home a couple of pints of Perridge for OH to enjoy later, I slept all the way home in a gentle beery fog!!! Great way to spend a bank holiday lunchtime.
I would suggest to the previous poster, who gave zero, that the happy people sitting waiting for the pub to open knew something he didnt!! I would have joined them and not missed a real treat!

The Yew Tree, Lower Wield

Visited this evening. One of the best pub meals ever. OH had the biggest ham hock in the world and the price was very reasonable. Will have to go back to try the rest of the menu. Well worth a detour for!!
