If you didn't know it was there, then you'd probably not find it. Looks like a place aimed squarely at tourists - a destination pub/eatery - but maybe frequented more by locals. Very smart place, manager/landlord exuded friendliness and efficiency. It's behind the main road through Hartley Wintney, and fronts on to open space. A comfortable-feeling place I'd seek out next time.

Went for lunch with friends and by the end were stunned by the rudeness of the staff member dealing with us. She was very abrupt and defensive, All we wanted was to split the bill, Not a difficult request and what we got was a lecture on the functionality of the till software. Won't be returning. It's a shame because it's a nice setting.

This is the pub/restaurant that my friend and I meet up at every year for lunch and a good catch up. It never fails to offer ambience and good food and service.
The bar has a great selection of gins on offer.
They happily replaced some of the foods on the menu item I selected to accommodate my diet and allowed my friend and I to sit without hassle, regardless of the fact that we were there for a total of four and a half hours.
We'll be back next year

Our first visit. Starters lovely: prawns, bruschetta and the mushroom. Mains also fab: lamb cutlet, Piti peri burger and salmon. Desserts went down well: lovely icreams and chocolate cake.
Friendly staff.
Just atmosphere....... it’s not quite sure what it is. We were the only booking.
Prices a little high perhaps but the food was nicely different.
Shame.

My friend and I decided to have lunch there. Ordering the pork belly which wasn’t pork belly and so tough I couldn’t cut through it. We complained and told it must of been the end piece and gave lame reason.
We was not approached by waitress if we wanted more drinks, dessert, coffee. We had to ask for the bill. Will not return or recommend.
