Anchor Inn Lower Froyle

Lower Froyle, Alton (Nr.), Hampshire, GU34 4NA
A popular foodie pub and comfortable place to stay, belonging to a small well-run group. There's still a traditional bar with low beams, open fires and historical bric-a-brac, plus a selection of real ales and good selection of wines by the glass.

On the food front, the style is traditional with a few Continental twists. A Bar Menu offering the likes of 'Welsh Rabbit'; 'Devilled Lambs Kidneys'; 'Beer-Battered Haddock with Chips' and 'Toad in the Hole with Shallot Gravy'.

The dining room, candlelit at night, offers a more expansive choice, with an early Summer menu listing 'Seared Scallops with Apple Rémoulade & Blue Cheese Beignet'; 'Dressed Cornish Crab with Lemon Mayonnaise'; 'Pork, Apple & Black Pudding Terrine with Piccalilli' and 'Chicken Liver & Foie Gras Terrine with Shallot Marmalade & Sourdough Toast' among the starters.

'Mixed Grill'; 'Whole Lemon Sole with Burnt Butter, Capers & Parsley'; 'Loin of local Lamb with Stuffed Shoulder, Pea & Mint Puree & Pea Shoots'; 'Glamorgan Sausages with Tomato Relish' and 'Bramley-Flavoured Pork Sausages, Mash & Onion Gravy' listed among the mains.

Traditional school-type puds, such as 'Spotted Dick' and 'Bread & Butter Pudding' with custard are offered at a standard far surpassing our memories of school, while chocoholics might have 'Chocolate Fondant with Pistachio Ice Cream' to tempt them.

If you plan ahead, a stay in one of their comfortable bedrooms is to be thoroughly recommended.
