We love going here. This is our favourite Pub in Romsey. The food is great quality and appeals to most pallets. There is the standard burger and chips but also different dishes. I enjoyed the duck confit starter. The service is good and friendly

Recently had the pleasure (?) of visiting the pub. Interior is very dark and gloomy, after 5 minutes waiting eventually was served and requested drinks and food. Drinks reasonable priced and food arrived after a 10 minute wait. Ok, but pretty average on the whole.

A great hideaway in the centre of this remarkable town in central Hampshire. An impromptu visit in terrible English Autumn weather, real log fire to warm up, and a great range of food and drink. We would visit again when in the area..

A nice pub, food was good - if a little overpriced for what you get. Service was very attentive and nice place to go on a cold lunchtime.
