We met up with 8 friends on a Sunday and enjoyed a very pleasant meal with good service. The menu choice was extensive and the portions generous.

We had lunch at the Hinton Arms as it was on our way to Chilworth. The portions were quite enormous and couldn't possibly be eaten by a normal size person. I had snails which were very tasty and done well. It is a convenient pub right on the main road between Winchester and Petersfield but that is about it really.... More

We chose the Hinton Arms because it was the only place in the area that offered more than one vegetarian option. When we arrived we thought it was a bit more "pubby" than we'd expected (the Web site made it look more up-market). However, the staff were really friendly and the food offered excellent value for money. Both vegetarian options... More

Wanted to go for ages - always looks great as you drive past. So we (2 adults, 1 child) went for lunch and left with a feeling of disillusionment. It was fine. Adequate. Okay-ish. Mediocre. Monday lunchtime, mentally busy. Great to see and good atmosphere. Service was functional. Efficient and functional, definitely not friendly or effusive. Food. Someone said on... More

This was our first time in this pub. First impression was welcoming and cosy. Cosy did become too hot though. But it was better that than cold. We'd booked a table but asked to move as the adjacent table was set up for a large party which meant we would most likely not hear ourselves talk. The young waitress was... More

We dont live in the area, driving by, and decided to stop here for unplanned lunch en route to Winchester. Never been to The Hinton Arms before, or been recommended. My husband chose pie and I opted for lasagne. We were both delighted with our meals, quality and quantity excellent and service with smiles. The pub itself is homely and... More

The gardens of the pub are lovely and look beautiful all year round. The pub is always buzzing with people. The food comes in very large portions but was rather bland. It seems to be quantity over quality. Ok if you like plain food but has lots of options on the menu. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Have been twice in the last six weeks, The first time the meal I had was trout. It was huge and delicious, enough for two...The second time the main was very good but the mars bar cheesecake was simply devine. .The young staff are very good under the guidance of Sally. ...Can't wait for the next visit
