Description: Beautiful village pub in the Hampshire countryside. Serving well kept real ales, interesting freshly prepared and locally sourced food. Whether your visit is just for leisure, business or a special occasion we are sure you'll find what you're looking for. Plenty of space for big parties and only a stones throw from the M3, Basingstoke, Reading, Hook business park and the beautiful Tylney hall. Large and peaceful beer garden - perfect for making the most of the sunshine. Child and dog friendly. Open from 9am for coffee, open all day and food served lunchtimes and evenings. Lee and the gang look forward to making you welcome.

We arrived five minutes before the kitchen shut and rather than turn us away the landlord (Lee) went out of his way to be welcoming and we went on to have a three course meal... It pays to be flexible and do this sort of thing as we will certainly return again and again. The food has always been excellent when we have been and they have well kept ales and excellent wines. It can be a little quite some days but I think as more people discover the pub it will get more popular especially as the team organise regular events and once you have found this tucked away pub you will want to return. The staff are all very friendly and helpful.

Yet again we have not been disappointed with the guys at the Falcon the food is extremely good and the service is always polite and with a smile, I can highly recommend the lamb and also the roast dinners my other half had the trout and this was also very good, 10 out of 10 good work guys we will see you again soon

Very clean and light interior. Cosy settees round the fireplace which in winter would be lovely. Very nice gardens and beautiful flower baskets outside. The landlord was extremely friendly and waited on our table as they were not busy as it was early evening. Food a bit limited and geared to the adults - no children's menu that we could see, but then maybe there is one for couples with children. Interesting things on menu that you would not normally find in pubs, e.g. venison, mussels, deep friend poached eggs. Very nicely presented and cooked and the desserts were also very good - try the pear sorbet which is very nice indeed. We shall go again and try something else on the menu. Its a bit off the beaten track which is a shame - we are local and know its there but anyone passing on the main road from Reading to Basingstoke would not know of its existence. That said, its in a lovely place and well worth visiting.

We attended a Christening here on sunday for some 70 people. We have been twice before, once for a drink and once for Sunday lunch. Its a great location for us but sadly has been very quiet when we attended previously which as a consiquence affects the ambiance of the place. However, Sunday with 70 guests, loads of kids and a bouncy castle made it great fun. The buffet was good and varied and the kichen bought out extra food at the end when supplies got a little low.

In my personal opinion there is a need for a little more attention to detail in certain areas, however having said that it deserves a chance to become a great pub/restuarant and looking at recent reviews I am sure it is well on its way to acheiving this. Well done The Falcon Team.

ITS DEFINATELY WORTH A VISIT.

Being unfamiliar with the area, we were directed to this pub by a local taxi driver and were very pleased with his recommendation. Although the staff were busy with a large birthday party we could not fault their friendly attention and would give a special thanks to Lee Watts. We were invited to join in with dancing at the party following a lovely dinner and we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
