We found The Hawk Inn, Amport, while staying in nearby Thruxton for a weekend, and called in to see if they had a table free for the evening... luckily they did!
The interior is modern but classic and extremely nice... it's clean and very well presented. Our waiter knew how to be friendly but not intrusive (a skill many lack). The menu had the usual mix of a dish of each kind of meat (Beef, Pork, Fish, Chicken etc..) along with a veggie option but the dishes all sounded creative and interesting... it was a tough choice what to try.. in the end we shared a starter (there are a number of starters for two) of olives,cold meats and sunblushed tomatoes, then I went for risotto and my partner went for beef...both of which were superb. Beautifully presented but with enough on the plate to satisfy a hungry weekend away couple. We managed to find room for a delicious pudding too, although I'm not sure how...! All this with drinks came to less than £50, which was really good value for money.
Highly recommended. We looked at their website when we got home and found that they also have rooms, and we may well stay over and try a few more things on the menu next time we make the trip to Thruxton. this is a 5 out of 5 review with good reason, a great choice.
