Sitting pretty in the heart of tranquil Greywell, a fine 16th-century inn awaits. Whether you’re drinking or dining, the team at this family-run country pub will welcome you with open arms and ensure you’re well looked after during your stay.
Real ale, branded beer, spirits and a selection of wine accompanies a menu of home-cooked British fare. Satisfy your appetite with a starter of breaded whitebait and tartare sauce or baked Camembert with warm ciabatta and homemade chutney. Tasty mains include an array of gourmet burgers (the homemade 100-per-cent beef patty in warm ciabatta is one of the best) plus plenty of traditional pub favourites – beer-battered fish and chips, hand-cut gammon steak with bubble and squeak and traditional pie of the day are real crowd-pleasers. When in season, look out for dishes made using local game. Wholesome roast lunches are served on Sunday but be sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Located just a hop, skip and jump from the Basingstoke Canal and River Whitewater, this is a popular destination amongst walkers, cyclists and boaters – where better to find refreshment than the Fox & Goose? Free camping is also available on the grounds – just email or call ahead to book a pitch for the night.
