Nice enough inside, staff friendly, seating and bar area good for a drink or watching sport. Food was average for the money, does not compare to other pubs in basingstoke at similar price point. Battered cod and chips, pretty bland, chips were the best part....More

Great dog friendly pub with very friendly locals. Excellent food but little on the pricey side for pub grub. Good selection of wine and beers and very friendly staff.

We have been kept waiting for an hour for the main meal (Sunday roast), and 30 mins for a single scoop of ice cream for the dessert! I wasn't impressed at all. We didn't even had the ice cream because at that stage, me and...More

Good, hearty, pub sandwiches and decently priced. Dogs welcome in the bar area. Bigger meals available. Open fire makes it warm and cosy. Friendly staff. Toilets and fittings in there could do with some 'fixing'.
