Well looked for somewhere to eat as the hotel lacked the urge to check out an empty restaurant. What a find, great atmosphere and the food was well cooked and fresh and the service was excellent. Should I have the opportunity to stay this way again I'll be booking in advance. Thanks for ending my day on a high.

My partner and I stopped at The Hogget for lunch during week and it definitely won't be the last time! The food was excellent - all locally sourced and the pub is family run (not a chain pub!) with staff who can't do enough for you. If you're looking for a place with great food, good portion sizes and a... More

I come here alone or with friend and family just for the burgers. Have cheese, mushroom and jalapeño and you won't be disappointed. Great staff and lovely, well kept 49'r ale. For me, perfect. (Apart from the weather, crappy day)

Would thoroughly recommend eating here. A varied and interesting choice was on the menu. Food was hot and tasty. Service provided was good and friendly. Not cheap but meal was worth it.

Been here before, and wasn't disappointed. Nice warm welcome from the staff. Service was great. Good range of beers. The gin section looked awesome but being lunchtime, I resisted. We had a starter to share,the calamari. Delicious. Nicely presented on a wooden board and then we have a sandwich each. Old favourite- fish finger. Can never go wrong and my... More

I've known The Hogget for a number of years, and I recommend it to everyone looking for 'properly good' pub to go to. It's not just the excellent food on offer, but Tom and Laura have around them some of the nicest, hardest-working and 'passionate' people on their Team. My recent lunch visit included some of the very best duck... More

Stayed at the Basingstoke country hotel,decided to have some decent dinner and tried the Hogget as it is only less than a five minute walk. Really friendly,not rushed and a totally enjoyable meal and a good atmosphere.Good choice of beer. Worth a trip out even if you are not staying in the hotel.

Thank Dalesue
