Contemporary European
Situated in the idyllic Hampshire village of Chawton, The Greyfriar at Chawton faces the home of Jane Austen. However, this award winning pub-restaurant has far more to recommend it than simply an interesting location – a relaxed, warm atmosphere and great food among its positives. The quintessential British pub, The Greyfriar is full of olde worlde character, from wood beamed ceilings to brick fireplaces and horse brass hung bar, not to mention the wonderful South facing garden, a must for traditional English summer drinking and dining. It’s all too easy here to spend time dreaming away over a pint or two, as guests have done since time immemorial. A newer addition to The Greyfriar that simply must be sampled is a cracking menu filled with contemporary dishes using seasonal and locally sourced food, as well as all your favourite pub grub style dishes.

    Mother’s Day lunch . Really delicious Sunday lunch. Friendly staff and buzzy, cosy pub. Dog friendly. Most delicious lemon sole with fried capers.. didn’t want to stop eating it. Outstanding all around. Will be back.

    Young staff was very friendly and helped get a taxi number on a Sunday. Sunday lamb roast dish was one of the best I’ve had-well done staff

    Lovely pub but suspect we hit them on a bad day. The service was very slow both in terms of our order being taken and then arrival of food. Even when the pub was quieter, it felt like staff had forgotten about us. Real shame

    We were made to feel very welcome and service was excellent. The vegetarian option we chose was not quite as we expected but thta was our fault. Beautifully prepared.

    Turned out to be an ideal location for my friend and I. I am not from the area and was a little dubious when the manager telephoned me to say they had a large party of 27 serving when we were but they wanted to let us know. In the event they handled everything very well - and the fact they informed me first was very efficient service The food was good rather than excellent and for me over salted - but overall very good experience and would happily revisit when in the area

    The Greyfriar was the perfect dining experience for me and my partner. The food was incredible and the service impeccable. Having a food intolerance I find it difficult to find places to eat and places to trust; however, from the moment I was in contact with the pub I felt confident and comfortable. The food was superb and I cannot wait to dine again.

    The Greyfriar at ChawtonResponded on 20 March 2019Hi EmmaS, We are so happy that you enjoyed your visit and that you enjoyed the food. we all look forward to seeing you again in the near future kind regards Simon, Norma and team Greyfriar

    Very poor roast dinner! All the veg were over cooked, roast potatoes were like bullets, carrots just mush and heaven only know what the cauliflower cheese had been through? The best part of the meal was the mint sauce (probably not “home-made”)!!
