FAULTLESS family run' this beautiful historic pub/hotel with its stunning scenery . A rural delight for all to enjoy. some folk simply have to moan about some petty little things. its in their nature. The energy used to complain would be better harnessd opening their eyes and talking the wounders of this beautiful village pub and eatery. the Bloomfield family are hard working and have many
years experience in hospitality and believe me they are the best. people should cut them some slack as it takes time to get everything right and they will
every time you visit them please try to remember there are people like me that love then dearly but can't be with them anymore. that's painful but never will you receive anything but the best from them. n

Popped in for a pint to see the refurbishment. Friendly staff/managers. Interior is an improvement, but rather bland. I guess they chose 'Pub look number X' and it just turned up in a box. Floor laid in the dark. Lovely location, but spoilt by extremely uncomfortable child-size garden furniture. No joke, it's far too small for anyone over 5ft tall. Beer as good as almost anywhere else, food okay. This could be a really great pub.

Thank you for taking the time to review us after we have just taken over.

The pub was designed before we came on board, equally the furniture was part of the purchase. I am sorry you found the seating uncomfortable, being only 5 foot myself, I guess I hadn't really noticed!

We get some fantastic feedback over the facelift of the pub, in particular, the floor. We have found it really durable, cant say if it was laid in the dark, perhaps just the rustic effect?

We pride ourselves on good beer, good food, and everyone is welcome. Please come back again soon.

I stayed here with two friends as accommodation after day one of the South Downs Way. This pub has reopened after flooding and a complete ground floor refurbishment (to a very high standard). The new owners were very welcoming with clean rooms, a powerful shower, bath, great comfy bedding and fluffy pillows. Bathroom was missing a large mirror (my only, minor picky issue). A cool beer (it was hot when we walked day one) or two and a great, tasty, rare steak later I was refreshed and ready for day two. The cooked breakfast the next morning was great. The owners are putting everything into this venture - visit and support them.

Room Tip: We had a downstairs room which had been fully refurbished about 3 months ago. The room was quiet dur...

Too modern inside for the oldy, worldy area. Food was nice, but not a very good starter menu.
Land lady very friendly, but not once did a member of staff during our meal ask if everything was ok. Bit disappointed as we had visited this place several times in the past with its previous land lords and had always had a good experience

After this winter's flood, this family-run hotel and pub has been redecorated from top to bottom and just re-opened under new management. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, as are the locals in the pub and beer garden. Rooms are clean and well appointed. Food is limited at present, as they get their kitchen team in place, but with a new head chef arriving shortly, their food promises to meet the high standards of the rest of the operation. Great place to stay for walkers or while visiting friends in the Meon valley

Really excited for our first review, and great it was so positive.

Quite rightly so, we waited patiently to get our kitchen team on board, and are delighted with the results.

Come back again soon, and try one of our home cooked dishes.

Thank you again.

This beautifully located historic inn recently restored to its former glory will have bells on it to with the new owners. It will become a much loved cosy warm and friendly eatery the village has ever known in record time. Their attention to detail and homely touches will out the bucks head back on the map I wish the lovely bloomfield every bit od success they deserve. A truly must see place you will want to see again and again. Love it.

Stopped in for a Sunday roast as the road to Wickam was closed due to black ice/accident, never been into this pub before although I have meant to for some years. Found the welcome and the food to be very good, will definitely pay another visit, probably when it's a bit warmer so I can sit in the beer garden by the river.
