Eat & Drink

Welcome! Our warm, relaxed and friendly setting is perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a drink. 

If you are looking to eat with us then please reserve a table. Reservations for up to 8 guests can be made online. For larger groups please email us to discuss.

We are now a cashless business. We accept Visa and Mastercard. We don’t accept Amex, cheques or cash, sorry.

Menus can be viewed below. Vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and dairy free diets can be accommodated. 

Table reservations for food are taken in the bar, restaurant and Little Minster Room (a private dining room catering for up to 16 guests). Private use of the Little Minster Room is available for groups with a minimum of 12 guests, taking our set menu at £35pp.

Please email us for more information on group bookings.

Dogs are permitted in the bar, Little Minster Room and outside areas. Dogs are not permitted in the main restaurant nor the hotel rooms. When booking a table online please let us know if you are bringing a dog.

Our a la carte menu ranges from pub classics and light bites to more sophisticated fare for special occasions, along with an interesting selection of local Hampshire real ales. We prefer to use local suppliers where possible. We also serve a roast on Sundays – reservations are essential to avoid disappointment.

We offer a reduced menu 3-5.45pm Friday to Sunday. This is subject to kitchen staff availability.

We’re not taking reservations for drinks only. Outside tables cannot be reserved.

Bringing your own cake for a celebration? Please email to let us know. We charge “cakeage” of £3pp if you eat your own cake instead of an Old Vine dessert (the cakeage fee is waived if you order a dessert alongside your own cake). We can also supply celebration cakes to order.
