Bakers Arms – Droxford

Another day another date, well if I am brutally honest the second in a day but that’s another story. arms 3

They Say:

The Bakers Arms serves award winning food and beer in a relaxed informal pub in the beautiful village of Droxford. Set in the Meon Valley which runs through the Southdowns National Park we are 10-15 miles from Winchester, Southampton and Portsmouth and only an hour from London. We are perfectly positioned for walkers, cyclists and destination diners alike. We are dog and child friendly and will do all we can to make your visit enjoyable.

Droxford is one of those quaint countryside villages, where you instantly want to move into a cottage with low ceilings, exposed beam and cook on an AGA. This is a pub where you need to book in advance. The menu is reasonable but slightly on the costly side. The service was friendly and relaxed, you feel like part of the family where you are here. They brought over a bread board with dipping oil with lovely rustic bread on it. I had the Spinach and mushroom pasta which was delicious, the portions and good side leaving feeling full not stuffed. It is also a dog friendly pub which is great.

I felt like I should have been arriving in a vintage car wearing a headscarf, and certainly for a few hours my modern life and troubles were left behind. A definite Sunday afternoon drive location for lunch.
