Clos du Marquis is in the premises of an Inn dating back to the 18 century, which was converted into a restaurant few years ago.
The story goes that drovers from Wales used to stop at night with their sheep on the way to London via Southampton to sell some of their cattle to the Royal Navy. They used to leave small coins with the inn keeper to provide food for the hungry sheepdogs who had to trot back on their return to the farms, the same way they came, the drovers having sold their ponies at the market.
One can see inside the restaurant a 310 ft deep well which had to be deepened over the years as the water table was lowering. The water is still pumped from this ancient well.

    Went here for lunch with wife and two friends for the sixth time and, as usual, thoroughly enjoyed the occasion. Perusal of the menu in front of the log fire was accompanied by amuse bouches. We all chose to have a starter and a main course - different people had different dishes, but all had a French ambience. Followed with coffees all round which came with delicious home-made chocolate.

    My wife and I dined at this restaurant in 2016. The food was really very good, service great and the ambience close to perfect so we had no hesitation in booking for a special night. Unfortunately we would be disappointed. The food and service was very much as we had expected, very good, however, the ambience was not so good, mainly due to the two children aged around 7-8 challenging for the noise award with their parents who would throw in a token "ssh" when it suited. I'm not anti children, I have one and I know what a challenge it can be to keep the little darlings amused, hence why I would not take them to a venue which I knew would irritate other diners trying to have a romantic dinner. I think the management should review their dining policy if they want to encourage repeat business. I'm afraid I would not take a chance visiting again unless I knew it would be ADULT FRIENDLY.

    This restaurant had been recommended by friends and we were pleased to have taken the plunge. From the first introduction to the menu the choice was difficult as so much sounded appetising. We tried the pigeon and lamb main courses and the quality of the cooking was first rate and none of the dishes disappointing. This is not a place for fast food or a quick bite but rather somewhere for a peaceful evening enjoying a splendid meal in a relaxed atmosphere. Wine list was fairly extensive and not over-priced but although a little disappointed with the Malbec this was by the choice. Highly recommended.

    Excellent evening. The service was welcoming and very efficient. Great choice on the menu. The food was a good standard of French fare. The double baked soufflé being a big hit.

    We've dined at Clos du Marquis many times over the years and have not yet had a dud meal. Always good quality. Unpretentious. Just genuinely a cut above the average.

    A recommended place to eat. It was a special celebration for me and I fancied a real treat. Liked the idea of French style quisine and we weren't let down. It started with some lovely canapés and each course was delightful. The wine (Both red and white) were also good and well priced, as was the total bill. A very old building and some of the decor was a bit dated.

    A real French Restaurant for that special occasion or meeting friends for lunch. The service is excellent and the food always comes up to expectations. We are usually four but the service and food that was provided for a party of 17 of us for my wife's birthday matched that which we always enjoy in the Restaurant. Our friends who spend summers in France have been very surprised to find real French cooking in the middle of Hampshire. A real gem of a restaurant.

    We enjoyed an early birthday lunch which meant that the restaurant was very quiet and perhaps a little lacking in atmosphere ....though other diners arrived later. The service was excellent and the food delicious with an amuse Bouche and warm yeasty bread . Our various meal choices were well cooked and presented but the pinnacle of the meal was the cheeseboard. We enjoyed fantastic French cheese ..perfectly ripe and very generous portions. So often these days we are offered the thinnest of slivers of very ordinary cheese ...on a slate which seems to mean that it is trendy ....This restaurant is truly reminiscent of the French restaurants that we have known and loved.... The cost of the meal for 4 was excellent value ..... We hope that other people will enjoy the food at this restaurant and we would certainly go back.

    Authentic French food of a high standard and good value. Excellent choices from two menu options, one of which is two course fixed price. Would return without hesitation if in the area.

    Very very good French food and the foie gras is the best either of us has had anywhere in the world. Great restaurant, very relaxed and being privately owned means that they give you dishes to try, wines to sample etc Just a really great restaurant that we have now been to several times in the last few months and hope to go to several more times in the next few months.

    Clos du Marquis managed to produced a delicious meal for one coeliac and one vegetarian. From an allergy point of view, they were excellent and produced GF bread roll (warm) - not a given in my experience. The options were plentiful and they were happy to adapt any dish, where possible. From a vegetarian point of view, they also had variety and quality. Wine and service exemplary. I think it would benefit from some classical soundtrack to brighten the ambience. Would recommend to anyone.
