Chestnut Horse


SquareMeal Review of Chestnut Horse

The Chestnut Horse ticks all the boxes required of a 400-year-old country inn: a fantastic location (squirreled away in the lovely Itchen Valley), warming winter fires, a forest of timbers, & a labyrinth of rooms oozing higgledy-piggledy charm. The darkly painted interior is lined with tankards & teapots, pastoral pictures & ephemera, while patterned carpets complete the traditional cottagey look. But the place is also a well-behaved foodie destination, fuelled by a kitchen that deals in fresh local produce. Classics such as beer-battered cod, calf’s liver & bacon or rib-eye steak keep it real, while caramelised fig & haloumi salad with roasted pine nuts or baked tilapia with dauphinoise & wilted spinach step outside the box. Thoughtfully selected wines, hand-pumped ales & a sunny decked terrace complete the picture.

An "out of the way" find
14 June 2015  
A very good value Saturday lunch with friends. We all selected from the £12 for two courses menu and were not disappointed. Two selections of goats cheese and beetroot salad and one of chicken caesar salad as starters, both dishes very good. These were followed by fish and chips for all - fresh white fish in a light batter and served with tartare sauce and mushy peas (on which two of us would usually pass!) which were delicious with the addition of mint. Add to this the very good service, and we had an excellent experience overall.
