a lovely place inside and out, especially if the sun is out, a great real ale pub, with very well kept ale's, you can sample different ales, staff very helpful and friendly, we did not eat here, but saying that, the food we did see coming out looked very good, nice decor inside with wooden panelled walls, and the Basingstoke...

Situated next to a small river with beautiful grounds to just sit and relax in. A short walk to look at Old Basing. We did coffee and drinks and the service was good and friendly. It is a great place to relax and the food that was served to others was very well presented

Went for a drink with my OH and it was lovely, outside heaters meant it wasn't cold and the inside provided a lovely setting later on. Very nice staff and selection of drinks.

Friendly welcoming staff who were willing to let us sample some real ales before making a decision as to which one we wanted to drink, which was much appreciated. We didn't eat on this occasion, but the food menu looked appetising.

The atmosphere is great in this pub and I like the fact that dogs are welcome. We were a bit peckish so chose the chilli beef nachos to accompany our drinks and not only was it well presented, but the combination of tastes and textures were delicious aswell! We'll be back!

Disappointing choice of food. Nothing much on the menu that I fancied, so finished up with fish and chips. The portion of fish was small and the plate overloaded with chunky chips. Staff were friendly and helpful. The sticky toffee pud. was nice.

Love the pub on a day like the day I visited (15th August). It was so nice to be able to sit outside in the Garden with a cold drink. But was gutted they stopped serving food at 14:30 as all we wanted was a bowl of chips to share between us.

Super setting and lovely to see young families taking advantage of the grassed area next to the river, staff were kind and very helpful and the choice and quality of the food was excellent, decent choice for my daughter who is a vegetarian.
