The vast quantity of al dente vegetables on our Sunday roasts was a joy. No padding with unnecessary carbohydrates, this was a nourishing meal. The rare roast beef and slow cooked lamb were excellent.

Popped in for a quick dinner before seeing a show in Basingstoke. Staff very friendly and food was fine. Drinks were quickly served and no complaints at the price either. Worth a try if you need pub grub. Enjoy!

“Gastro pub” is false advertising! Lovely location. Very friendly staff. Bar itself could do with a refurb or maybe just a deep clean. The food is just not good at all. Probably the most overpriced pub grub I’ve ever eaten. The burger was not good...More
