Venture off the beaten track to find this gem of a pub hidden away near Denmead and Waterlooville. It's a traditional welcoming English pub offering a fantastic selection of real ales and delicious home-cooked food.

The dining area has lots of nooks and crannies - perfect for intimate dinners à deux. The Horse and Jockey also lends itself to larger parties and events.

You are spoilt for choice when it comes to the menu, and there is a specials board which changes regularly. The chicken liver paté with a plum and apple chutney was divine, and the starter of fishcakes came with an interesting twist - a light, tasty batter instead of the usual breadcrumbs. There are lots of traditional favourites on the main-course menu, including a breast of chicken stuffed with Stilton and apricot, wrapped in Parma ham and served with a white wine cream sauce. Those hankering for a good old-fashioned British pudding will be spoilt for choice. We shared a sticky toffee pudding - on a cold autumnal evening this was blissful comfort food.

This pub is named after The Lamb, the horse raised and trained on the nearby estate of Lord Poulett, ridden to a memorable victory in the 1868 Grand National. Our visit was certainly memorable - we recommend you saddle up and seek out this little bit of Hampshire heaven yourself.
