Such a pity! Was a lovely pub, great atmosphere etc. New management have come in, got rid of staff, the live music, the very popular quiz (now moved to a pub on Charles Street) and refurbed it all so it looks like something out of the 70s! No soul. Pricey tool Will NOT be returning...

Good for the money, £70 for the night inc breakfast very reasonable. Old building, external toilet pretty annoying!

I'm always surprised by how small this place is and how many people seem able to squeeze in! Lots of 'events' (bands, open mike, etc) and a happy and relaxed atmosphere a the GI. Brilliant for a relaxed drink in the day or a noisier one in the evening!

The Good Intent dates back to the 16th Century. In addition to the restaurant there are three rooms available for B & B. This is a quaint building which originally was created from the timbers reclaimed from a ship called The Good Intent. It has been extensively modified over the years but still manages to retain plenty of old world... More

When I first stayed here a while ago and recall being impressed by the warmth and friendliness of the Geoff and Abby, the couple who run the place. That was the reason for my saying again and I was not disappointed.

Visited here for my Mum's birthday after reading good reviews. Drinks were good and the table comfortable enough. It started off ok. Order was taken promptly and starters arrived quickly. The starters were nice, we were enjoying ourselves, what could go wrong? Well, waiting 45+ minutes for our main courses didn't help. When the meals finally arrived we received two... More

Just a quick one. Pleasant olde world pub. Very friendly staff and locals. Nice to be able to sit in a pub and savour a good pint over a book. Thoroughly recommend Petersfield's beer scene. Tried most of the varied pubs in the town and the quality and variety is very good

Close to the centre with parking this is a great place to stay. Lovely atmosphere and quirky beamed rooms . Great breakfast freshly cooked. Helpful and friendly staff Only drawback was no en suite to our room so quite a walk to our private bathroom

Lovely pub. Good service. Sunday lunch comes in 3 size choices ( handy for those of us who want to save room for a pudding treat), pudding was yummy. Service excellent. I will be back and next time with the dog.
