About the restaurant
Set on the edge of the picturesque Wessex Downs in the North Hampshire countryside, Malverleys is a small farm, restaurant, bakery and shop. The daily changing menu reflects our surroundings and the seasons, with all our ingredients coming straight from the farm or trusted producers. We offer a versatile space for the local community to enjoy coffee, wholesome food and carefully sourced, sustainable produce.

With sustainability and conservation at our core, Malverleys provides an outlet immersed in the countryside where friends and family can meet, or those seeking time to themselves can enjoy the comfortable, tranquil atmosphere. Visitors have the opportunity to purchase sustainably sourced products, attend horticultural workshops, and dine in the restaurant where ingredients are seasonal and often grown on-site in the market garden.

About the restaurant
The White Lion is an independent traditional country pub in the beautiful Meon Valley, Hampshire, in the village of Soberton. We have developed a fantastic reputation for delicious locally-sourced food, and popular local Reals Ales from Bowman Brewery in Wallops Wood which is just up the road from us.

Waitress laugh was a tad to loud, almost a shrill. But other than that all the guest on our table said it was a lovely place with great food

About the restaurant
Mark, Chloe and their friendly young team welcome you to The Hampshire Bowman in Dundridge, a traditional country free-house serving real ales, real ciders and real food all year round.

We’re dog friendly and mobile phone unfriendly. The Hampshire Bowman is a great unspoilt country pub with a huge garden. Real ale and traditional cider are our specialty – we’ve been in the CAMRA good beer guide for over 30 years!

PLEASE NOTE - We don't take bookings for our HUGE garden, please just turn up if you want to sit outside!

About the restaurant
The Cricketers Inn is everything you would expect from a traditional country pub: cosy interiors, open fire, well-kept ales, local gins, a good selection of wine and a warm welcome from the team. You can choose to dine in the restaurant, the dog-friendly bar area, or outside in our large beer garden.

We are all about creating food that is full of flavour without the fuss. Hearty pub classics and daily specials that can be enjoyed in a relaxed environment with the whole family. We champion local producers and are
committed to sourcing quality, seasonal produce whenever possible.
