We visited for a family member's birthday and had pre-booked our table, which was reday when we arrived. The welcome from the front of house staff is always super and therefore we travel over 20 miles to come to The Hatch at Basingstoke. The food is excellent quality, hot and tasty and arrived within 15 - 20 minutes of us... More

As a group of friends we regularly meet here, the food, atmosphere and service is very good of a lunchtime. There is a good selection on the menu. Parking is plentiful and easy to get to.

We managed to spend four hours as a family group of seven having a very relaxed pre-Christmas lunch gathering. The staff are young, cheerful and friendly; the service style is informal but the pub is very clean and pleasantly decorated and furnished. All seven food orders came as requested - there could be an improvement on the larder trim of... More

The only downside was we felt we were seated a little too closely to our... More

This was our first visit to The Hatch and we weren't disappointed, service, drinks and food all very good. Staff all very pleasant, polite and helpful, food was served promptly and the presentation was very good. Food quality was good and it was served freshly cooked and nice and hot. Will certainly return again.

As part of our wedding anniversity we visited our daughter in Basingstoke, she had booked a table for four at this place. We turned up on time only to find no booking recorded, the staff were very apologetic and done a bit or investigating which discovered it was the manager who took the call and never recorded it in the...
