The Crown at Arford

This relaxed, family-friendly pub in Arford, rural Hampshire, offers a twist on tradtional pub grub with a modern à la carte sharing menu.

This family and dog-friendly pub in the East Hants village of Arford hits all the right notes for a traditional British pub – cosy interiors, friendly staff, community atmosphere – but with a twist.

It’s all about sharing here, with the menu slightly different from that of your usual country pub. There are no starters or mains, with the pub serving a selection of freshly cooked sharing small plates showcasing the best seasonal British produce, sourced locally where possible.

The menu is small but perfectly formed and changes frequently. Expect to find dishes like Hampshire lamb cutlets with dauphinoise potato, aubergine timbale and black pudding sausage rolls. The à la carte menu is served all day Tues – Sat, with a shorter menu served on Mon evenings.

There’s also a more traditional Sunday lunch offering, with starters, mains and desserts. Table for two?
