Description: The Peat Spade Inn sits in a picture postcard setting in the beautiful village of Longstock in the heart of Hampshire. Located in the Test Valley, less than a mile from Stockbridge - the fly fishing capital of the world - the rivers and downs surrounding the inn are home to some of the best fishing and shooting opportunities in the world making The Peat Spade Inn an inviting refuge for country sport enthusiasts. After a long day enjoying the outdoors, head back to the inn to rest your feet, sit back and relax with a freshly poured pint of Upham real ale. With the Test Way passing close by, The Peat Spade is a popular retreat for walkers to stop by en route to refuel with some fabulous pub food. It's a great stopover too for those visiting the nearby historic cities of Winchester and Salisbury. This charming country pub is just an hour's drive away from London and the New Forest and provides the perfect place for a spot of lunch, a delicious dinner, a drink or two in the idyllic Hampshire countryside and if you don't fancy going anywhere, a night's stay. The Peat Spade Inn is one of the newest members of the Upham Group family of character pubs.

“Excellent night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

So England were busy!
We enjoyed one of the best meals in ages.
Service excellent and the fresh local produce expertly prepared and hot.
It takes time to find a peach but we seem to have discovered one at last!
Thanks

“Very good dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

This is a popular pub with plenty of character. We had an evening meal for 6 and everyone enjoyed it. Service was good with out the attitude problems mentioned by some previous reviewers. Food was good but expensive.

“We put a toe in the water and it was warm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

My wife and I had not visited the Peat Spade for a couple of years and had been put off by poor reviews and one disappointing visit so when i booked for Saturday evening had no great expectations. In the event we were delighted with the experience. We took an old friend who was visiting from Italy and found the experience a pleasure. The staff were very friendly and despite the restaurant being full we were not kept waiting for long. The food was imaginative and good.
