We’re a true country pub serving local beers, ales and cider. Our friendly bar team will stir up your favourite tipple, whether it’s a Chilgrove Dry gin and tonic, a glass of red or a flute of our sparkling English wine.

The great British countryside is at the heart of our pub and we’ve worked hard to incorporate the natural environment and the building’s history into our interiors. Inside you’ll find bespoke oak furniture, reclaimed art and a roaring fire to cosy up by.


The spacious restaurant features large picture windows overlooking a beautiful coppice and the rolling South Downs, and an open kitchen so guests can watch the chefs hard at work. We also have an intimate private dining room which seats up to 10 guests and is ideal for special occasions, meetings and workshops.

Please note that as we make all our dishes using only the freshest seasonal produce, our menus change frequently and the menus displayed on our website are samples.


A true country pub overlooking the stunning South Downs and yet just a train journey away from several major cities (including Winchester, Southampton and London) we’re a unique venue for business meetings, workshops and corporate team building days.


Our private dining room can accommodate up to 12 people in a boardroom set-up and includes everything you need; including a projector, pads and pens, WiFi and refreshments.


Private Hire

We have the perfect venue for your upcoming celebration, get-together or business meeting. Our cosy and intimate private dining room seats up to 12 people and is nicely secluded from the main bar and restaurant. For parties of ten people or less you can also opt to book the long wooden table overlooking our open kitchen, where you can watch our chefs hard at work while you dine.

We’re always happy to work with you to create a bespoke menu tailored to your occasion. Enquire with our team on booking.


Sometimes an afternoon or evening visit simply isn’t long enough to soak up our scenic surroundings and savour our delicious food; so why not stay the night as well? Our pub features 14 sumptuous en-suite bedrooms which are located within the pub and in a separate annexe, all enjoying picturesque vistas of the countryside. Each cosy room is individual in décor, combining a charming cottage style with all the mod cons you could need.

We have five luxury double rooms with super king beds, one complete with a roll top bath. Eight double rooms are also available with king or super king beds, and we have a larger Snug room featuring a double bed that converts into twin beds and is interconnected with a double room; making it perfect for families.

Weekday rate (Tuesday to Friday) from £90 - £130. Weekend Rate (Saturday) from £105 - £155. These rates are quoted inclusive of our country buffet breakfast. Full English breakfast is available at an additional cost. We have a minimum of a two-night stay at the weekend.

Dogs are very welcome to stay in any of bedrooms, for a small extra charge of £15 per dog. Please let a member of our team know upon booking if you are bringing your dog along.
