    We were a group of 16 and were all seated together despite me saying I understood if we had to be split up. Wait for food was about 90mins but we were informed that on ordering. We could not fault the food, portion size or the staff. We had a wonderful afternoon and wouldn’t hesitate to come back. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.

    We had lunch on a very busy, sunny Saturday. The staff were efficient, polite and friendly despite the pressure. Food was delicious.

    Lovely pub. Superb beer garden. 5 people had food - all meals went down very well - scampi and chips x 3, Burger and a roast pheasant. Chips could have been better. Service very good - nice to see a pub with a selection of ciders - and Sandford Orchards on sale - real bonus.

    Hampshire Bowman was a nice pub in a good location. Plenty of car parking, always a good thing. Four adults all had ‘small’ roast dinners (3 beef, 1 pheasant). The meat was tough, and when mentioned to a member of staff that the pheasant was extremely tough, the answer was ‘that’s the trouble with pheasant, it’s either overcooked or dry’! We were also charged for 6 drinks, when we only had 4, and it took some persuading to convince the member of staff that we were not fibbing.

    Lovely food. Tiny pub with tables and chairs very close to each other. I had to keep getting up to let people out and was knocked as people passed our table! Realise it must be hard to fit in as many as possible to eat.
