The Queen Inn
Picture-postcard surroundings, skilfully cooked traditional fare and Cask Marque-accredited ale are what await guests at The Queen Inn in Dummer. Set amid acres of unspoilt countryside, but with easy links to and from Basingstoke – the pub is just half a mile from Junction 7 on the M3 – the inn’s country rustic exterior instantly charms. Inside, exposed beams and woodwork, soft lighting, intimate booth seating, and a log fire that radiates warmth in the winter months make The Queen Inn the perfect haunt for relaxed get-togethers over homemade food and award-winning drinks.
The Queen Inn’s menu lists traditional pub favourites alongside an ever-changing specials board. Dishes are prepared with produce that has been sourced locally wherever possible. Diners travel from far and wide to try The Queen Inn’s famous steak and ale pie, a classic that can be paired with a number of tempting tipples. The bar boasts a Coravin system that allows the pub to offer all of their wines by the glass, and they also have an impressive listing of 30 gins.
For those visiting in the summer, the opportunity to take advantage of the inn’s beer garden, which is dog-friendly, shouldn’t be missed. The chance to enjoy The Queen Inn’s popular Sunday lunch offering in the sunshine is understandably popular, so call ahead and make a booking.
