Crondall Road, Crookham Village, Fleet, GU51 5SU
The Exchequer is an award-winning country pub in the North Hampshire village of Crookham that offers a seasonal British menu and daily specials board packed with delicious dishes. The chefs are champions of local produce and source the best ingredients in the region to delight your appetite. If treating yourself to a three-course meal you might like to start with battered tiger prawns with sweet chilli sauce or caramelised red onion tart with balsamic dressing. Follow with the likes of Hampshire steak, beef and St. Peter’s ale pie or the homemade haddock and salmon fish pie. The handmade desserts are always worth the wait, especially when you’re faced with options such as warm pecan pie and white chocolate and honeycomb cheesecake. It’s a pub for all seasons – the spacious patios are ideal for soaking up some summer sun, while the cosy fire and seamless blend of modern design with traditional country-pub decor make it the perfect winter hideaway. The friendly team ensures every visit results in you wanting to return, whether you’re stopping by for a midweek lunch, post-work pint or relaxed Sunday lunch with friends. It’s not all about food – behind the bar you will find an interesting selection of local ale, carefully chosen wine and cider. What’s not to love?
