user reviews of the Pointer Inn, Alresford

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Nice, welcoming pub. Unexciting beer list (only Wherry when I was there) but very friendly staff. Horrible 1970s restaurant serving horrible 1970s food. Cheap and generous portions for the extremely undemanding, although the home made apple pie was rather good.

Traditional pub and the only one in Alresford. Two hand pumps but only Greene King IPA, the landlord stated that he could not sell guests and has given up offering them. He said that he had to finish the Old Speckled Hen himself recently. I guess they are G/K beer tied as I am sure genuine guests would sell. I would have asked him if he was not so busy as he had only just opened. Obviously not a big rush on a Tuesday evening as it must have been at least 18.06 when I entered and he turned on the lights. I think the opening times are 12:00 to 14:30 and 18:00 to 23:00.

The pub still has clearly separated bars; saloon and lounge. The saloon has a pool table, fruit machine and one of the modern computer juke boxes. There are two tables to sit at in this area, one with four proper chairs and the other with a couple of stools. There is a third table that seems to be either for the pool player’s drinks or those selecting tracks at the juke box. It could also be for those that can't get a seat at busy times. On keg are Stella, Guinness, Carlsberg and Kronenberg Cold Premiere. In the fridge I spotted quite a stock of Young’s Light Ale so light and bitters must still be popular here.
