Stayed here on Saturday night and it was great. Lovely room and staff lovely. Breakfast this morning was great. We are in the restaurant last night and the steaks were absolutely gorgeous. In fact it was the best fillet steak I have had in a long time.

We stayed here for a Saturday night away. Petersburg's is a lovely town, and this is a great little pub right in the centre. There are three rooms, charmingly decorated, with a very comfortable bed. We had a drink at the bar before heading out to eat elsewhere, but breakfast was very enjoyable. High quality, relaxed service, would stay again.

Friendly, welcoming and helpful staff (Emma was especially nice). The pub was well-located and the only downside was the need to pay for the overnight stay in a municipal car park (additional cost). The room was fairly small considering the price but Petersfield is an expensive area I guess. Great central location and all amenities were well-catered for and breakfast...

Stayed here on a Friday night to meet up with a family member, lovely cosy room, with lots of nice touches and good bed linen. Had dinner in restaurant which was good (but nothing really special) but the breakfast the next morning was superb, beautifully served with great choice, very generous portions, and fabulous service - nothing was too much...

My husband and I stayed at the Old Drum for 9 nights.Everything had recently been renovated and redecorated. The room was wonderful with very comfy bed and fluffy high end bedding.Plenty of drawer space but no closets or wardrobe. Not a problem we just lived out of suitcases. The breakfast which is complementary was very yummy and served with Illy...

Very comfortable bed in a clean, spacious room, with a coffee machine and good lighting. Plenty of drawer space, but no wardrobe, just a number of hooks on the wall, not a problem for our 2 night stay, but a possible inconvenience for longer stays. We had no trouble with noise from the street, even though we stayed Saturday and...

We stayed whilst attending a wedding in Bosham. The room was beautiful, wonderful bed and marvellous bathroom. Luxurious bathrobes and top class toiletries. Breakfast was lovely. Very friendly owner Central location for Petersfield and I would imagine a perfect spot to explore the surrounding area. Unfortunate that it does not have its own car park, but there is a council...

Very comfortable bed in a beautifully designed room. However, there was no wardrobe, bathmat or hairdryer. A little whiff of 'form over function' for my money.. The staff were friendly and efficient, particularly the manager. The evening meal was nice - not exceptional, but very tasty and well presented. The dining room was busy, so the service was a little...

Stayed here for three nights whilst doing a round of the relatives. First of all, a very warm welcome from Jo, who booked us in very efficiently, showed us our room (Carcoal) which was excellent, and gave us tips on the parking arrangements behind the property, which was important as you could park the car there last thing, and pay...
