We have been meaning to visit this pub for a while and we popped in for lunch today. We discovered that the new owners have been in only a few weeks.They look to have made a good start. We really liked the menu which has a good selection and what seemed to us Mediterranean undertones. The set lunch was a...

I walked in on a Sunday. Irma was empty and there was no smell of food. I was told that there was a "Sunday Roast" only. Beef or Turkey to be precise.no menu, no prices no customers no smell of food. Surely this should've raised question by my nieve self. After my last experience a year earlier with home made...

Was my local for a few months in the UK. Music nights are the best. It does not have a garden and so suffers a bit on a warm sunny day. Food is limited to simple items but the chef is pretty good none the less. Accomodation here is I expect the best value in town. Eccentric customer base for...

Booked the table for 2@2. Had the Sunday roast. Excellent value for money. I was talking a lot so my food went a little cold so that was my fault but the taste and quality was excellent.

My wife and I booked an overnight stay at The Good Intent. We travelled by train to Petersfield. The hotel is a 7 min walk from the train station. Shopping centre is a short walk from The Good Intent . Once we arrived we were shown to our room above the pub. The rooms are quirky but not more than...

Okay, so it is not a modern, brand new, shiny building. It is a warm, cosy, olde world pub, exactly what we expected. True you could hear the traffic in the morning but it is on a main (ish) road. Also it is a music venue during the evening. Again staying in this kind of establishment you expect a certain...

I stayed here for one night (for work). Very friendly welcome and great customer service over a mix up with the rooms (my fault). The stairs to the rooms are very steep and there is limited head room in places, but it all adds to the charm of the place. The rooms were well presented and clean / comfortable -...
