Review on The Chestnut Horse

Top-notch locally brewed real ales are one of the attractions in this spick-and-span sixteenth-century pub in the heart of the picturesque Itchen Valley. Drinkers congregate in the cosy bars, which are festooned with tankards, chamber pots, pictures and mirrors.

Those wanting to eat have a choice of Green (a light panelled room adorned with plates) or Red (a low-beamed, dark-toned candlelit room that comes into its own during the evening).

The menu covers a lot of ground, from tried-and-tested pub favourites such as smoked mackerel pâté, salmon fishcakes or ham and eggs to more modern ideas including pan-fried fillet steak topped with foie gras and served with veal and Madeira jus, baked fillets of sea bream with sweet chilli sauce, followed by desserts like summer pudding or treacle and lemon tart.

Early-evening two-course menus (until 7.30pm) are best sellers during the week.
