Lower Froyle, Alton, GU34 4NA

An idyllic country inn surrounded by sweeping fields, The Anchor Inn is one of Hampshire’s best kept secrets – and once you visit you’ll want to keep it that way. Both the literary-themed country-chic bedrooms and quirky bar and restaurant are brimming with character. You’ll find a menagerie of curious objects on every surface, and walls adorned with paintings, portraits and inspirational quotes.

The menu champions traditional and seasonal British fare, and there’s a spacious garden terrace for al fresco wining and dining. Think starters like soused Plymouth mackerel with beetroot salsa, chicory and watercress, and confit duck ballotine drizzled in blood orange and served atop endive salad and mini brioche. Try the Hampshire venison sausages with smoked mashed potatoes and confit orange jus, or the butternut squash and chestnut cannelloni served with crispy leeks and beetroot. The menu changes throughout the year to make use of the freshest local produce. The wine list has been expertly selected to match the food and can be enjoyed separately. Having been awarded two AA rosettes, it’s evident that the food at The Anchor Inn goes above and beyond the average pub grub. Well placed for exploring the magnificent South Downs National Park and historic sites like the home of Jane Austen and the medieval city of Winchester, this Hampshire inn is a true delight. The pub and accommodation is dog-friendly too.
