About

At The Peat Spade the first thing we make sure we get right when preparing our food is the ingredients. Our chefs have a passion for food and a genuine desire to work with local and regional family-firm suppliers to source the very best and freshest produce. We liaise with the producers regularly to make sure we can always take advantage of seasonal crops and the very best cuts of meat all year round. That’s why, as well as our fabulous regular menus, it’s always worth checking our specials boards where these seasonal highlights take pride of place.

A little cold inside. First waitress not particularly welcoming or friendly but she did mellow. Second waitress much more light hearted. (Possibly shift change?) Table not ready had to wait in window seat. Not great value for money but quite a pleasant ambience.

Our first, and certainly not our last visit to this pub. We booked it on a friend’s recommendation and met up with my sister and her husband. It was perfect. Great staff, fabulous food, we shall be back with our four grown up children as soon as you reopen post lockdown 👍

Popped out for Sunday lunch while kitchen being renovated. Lovely part of Hampshire to walk to build up an appetite. Peat Spade didn’t disappoint. Roasts good and fish too. Puddings excellent. Service top notch and friendly. Ambience of a country gastropub suffers from the mandatory COVID spacing. That is the only mark down. Not sure what can be done in that regard.

I love the Peat Spade and come often, however this time I was disappointed. As always, the service was great and very friendly. I ordered a rare steak and got a medium to overdone one. I sent it back and the next one was raw. I rather felt the chef was sending me a message - probably not but that was how I felt. I did not send this one back but wish I had.
Sorry, I won't give up but I did not leave happy.

We had an early dinner after golf at Leckford and a pleasant walk around Stockbridge. It was early and there is a pandemic, but we had a lovely experience. Friendly welcome, very peaceful, attentive service and excellent food. We were the only diners (it was a Tuesday) which wouldn't suit everyone, but we loved it.

My Mum, Dad and I booked to go here during the week and it was soooo lovely ! The food was amazing! The lamb and white bean main was utterly spectacular and the banana pudding - my goodness! Songs should be written! We all had a lovely time and the people working there were super too - would absolutely recommend!
