Went to the Hunters at 2 pm. They did not serve food all day but recommended the Brickmakers. And we were not disappointed. The pub was cosy and the lady who served us was very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent, all home made from the starters to the dessert. Excellent choice from duck legs to burgers. Service wes... More

We live locally, but wanted to try somewhere different. We found this lovely village pub and booked a table for the following weekend (14/1). All I can say is, everyone enjoyed their chosen items from a varied menu. All cooked well and arrived hot, which although a strange thing to comment on, most places these days leave meals to sit...

My family and I have been in for 3 meals over Christmas including Sunday lunch and every one of them has been very good. Good beef when visiting for Sunday lunch, a lovely pie just before Xmas and a tasty burger post xmas. The staff have always been helpful and friendly. Keep up the good work

Called in on the way to a long weekend in Winchester. Travelled 150 miles to have lunch as we'd found this gem back in May this year. It was as good as we remembered and well worth the detour. The food and service is fantastic and we'll definitely call in again when in that part of the world.

We've stopped here a few times for lunches, dinners and a quick pint. The staff are very friendly and helpful, kids are welcome during the day, we've not taken them in the evening but I'm sure they would be just as welcome then. The food is always lovely and the atmosphere is good.

Very quiet when we arrived but we received a warm welcome. Lovely pub. Good selection of meals across the price range. Had the ham egg and chips and wraps. All arrived in a timely manner. The ham was deliciously tender. Everything cooked well and nicely presented. Particularly enjoyed the lager - German Warsteiner - not available in a lot of... More

Have been frequenting this pub for some time now but newer to eat until today. What a shame, have been missing out on marvellous food and excellent service. Annie had the ribeye which was cooked perfectly and I chanced the fajitas which were above expectations. Staff very friendly and helpful, we will. E back for more!
