|A short train ride from Eastleigh brought us to this large thatched roof country pub run by Greene King. |
Ideally located right by the train station with seats to the front as you enter into the pub through one of the low doors, mind your head if you’re over 6ft tall !
4 ales on the hand pumps, 2 new beers for me which were Itchin Valley Belgarum @ 3.9% & Andwell Brewing Company Ruddy Darter @ 4.6%, both nice pints but I favoured the Belgarum as it lighter and more refreshing.
Just before 7pm when we got here and I planned to eat but was told there was a 45 minute wait for food, it certainly was busy with diners than drinkers.
A lovely pub with plenty of age, beamed ceilings, stone flooring. We spent most of the time out he front enjoying the good weather before moving onto Winchester.
A flying visit but a good one, nice pub.

|Walked here on a sunny Saturday and sat in the lower garden. Big pleasant garden with plenty of tables. Unfortunately there were four very loud idiots there which lowered the tone of the place. When they left it was very nice. Dog friendly pub and garden. Slow service in the bar, not enough staff behind the bar. Didn't eat so can't comment on the food.|

|It's a Chef & Brewer so don't expect high end food. Most of the staff were very friendly. The chap behind the bar who seemed to be some sort of supervisor was not very happy when three of us handed the Bellhaven beer back. It's not a good idea to argue with customers who have been drinking real ale for longer than they have been on the planet.|
It was quite a decent pub 20 years ago.

|Went here on a glorious sunny Sunday.the staff were friendly and happy to assist us.Very good service.The meal was GARBAGE. I've never had meat so tough.Even our dog wouldn't eat it. Any chef who's sends food out like that must be a reject from McDonald's.Beer yes, Food no. |

|Went here on a glorious sunny Sat, 15 Sept 2012, for the first time. Although it is a 'food chain' pub, it is perfectly pleasant - a lovely building in nice settings, with a great garden.|
My group popped in around midday to get some takeaway ciders to enjoy by the river - the staff were friendly and happy to assist us. Later, we came back this way and had a late lunch around 3pm... I can't vouch for busier times, but for us the food arrived after a sensible wait, and was delicious (gourmet steak burger - just do it!). They had a decent selection of ales on tap too.
I would make this a staple stop on any local walk, and will be going back when I get the chance.
