Pubs in Hampshire

If you're looking for a relaxed, casual ambience with great food and drink, then our traditional Hampshire’s pubs have been welcoming visitors for centuries and each offers its own unique character and experience.

Warm up besides a glowing open fire and perhaps enjoy a pint of local ale in the winter, or take advantage of our relaxing beer gardens and terraces during balmy summer evenings
Many pubs in Hampshire offer delicious home-cooked food and fine local cask ales while others offer beer gardens, a fascinating history or a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
The picturesque villages of the Test Valley and East Hampshire in the Hampshire South Downs are particularly noted for their hidden gems.

Here you’ll find thatched roofs, wooden beams, ancient flagstones, warming fires and bags of character.

A day out with the family needn’t be a nightmare.

We have visited pubs across the Hampshire countryside looking for those which offer a warm welcome for children.
We've rated parking, high chairs, entertainments, gardens, menus and baby changing facilities.

Out of all those we visited, we have chosen those which we think promise the best all-around experience.

The pubs in Hampshire may not provide organic baby food or free nappies or a basket of toys but they do all offer welcoming touches - which mean that you can relax and enjoy yourself.

And as far as possible, we have selected Hampshire pubs near a tourist attraction or activity in case you want to make a day of it.
