About Us

John and Ruth welcome you back to your village local

We look forward to serving you from our wide range of quality wines, spirits and an abundance of lagers, ciders and well kept ales!
Our exciting new menu is coming soon and will consist of lovingly home cooked meals from locally sourced produce to accommodate every palate.

Surrounded by the wonderful Hampshire countryside and Chawton’s rich literary history we have been the village pub for at least 150 years. At the heart of the village we are a family and dog friendly country pub, that offers an unrivalled range of beverages, innovative flavour packed dishes made from local ingredients and unique dining experiences. The historic Hampshire village of Chawton is just off the junction of the A32 and A31 and a 15-minute walk from the centre of Alton. We are directly opposite the former home of world famous author Jane Austen and a five-minute walk from her ‘Great House’.
