Situated in the pretty village of Holyport, set back from the green and overlooking the pond, The Belgian Arms is a favourite with locals and visitors to the area alike.

We offer really tasty British food that’s beautifully cooked, a great selection of wines and a really good pint.

The atmosphere is warm, relaxed and friendly. The Belgian Arms is the ideal spot for meeting up with family and friends, an informal business lunch or dinner and simply having fun.

Our first visit on a Sunday and we were dry happy with the service and food. A more concise menu than normal but the quality of the food was very good and the service was good as well.

Always great food and attention by friendly staff. I like the fact no service charge is added which allows us to reward good service appropriately...and its always good.
Its a pub with restaurant quality food and great outdoor drinking and eating area as well as inside.

My friend's burger was nice but the patty overcooked, very dry. Apart from that it was nice :)

Booked lunch in order to catchup with some old friends. I booked a table inside but as it was a (rare) sunny day asked if we could move outside which they did without any fuss. Food and service was very good and although it got busy we never felt rushed.

Fabulous dinner, mouthwatering meals, even the harissa-spiced tender-stem broccoli side dish hit the spot.
Lovely Cottonworth sparkling rose all the way from Hampshire and friendly table service.
A little gem in Holyport.

Good pub with great service and high quality food. Not crazy expensive for the high standard, either. Not a massive range of beers on tap but at least a good bitter, a pale ale and some decent lagers. I liked the burger: full of flavour and appealingly dirty.

We had a lovely Sunday lunch. The food was excellent, hot and tasty and a good portion. It came in good time. My husband said the beer was really well kept and my Summer Garden cocktail was very refreshing. As our first meal out since last March it was perfect! Thank you.
