HOME FROM HOME IN THE OLD HOUSE AT HOME!

The Old House At HomeThis charming timbered Inn nestled adjacent to St Faith’s Church in the centre of Havant has recently undergone a complete refurbishment under a new manager and chef. We visited this Inn one cold winter’s evening and were greeted by a roaring log fire and a warm smile from the bar staff. We elected to eat in the newly created private dining area which can also cater for private parties as well. This is a charming pub to visit if only to enjoy the beamed interiors and has a full range of Fullers beers and wines.

The Old House At HomeThe menu comprises five starters, three sharing platters and nine large plates ‘mains’ plus five ‘puddings’ and a specials board as well. Such a wide choice!

Smoked haddock fishcake, smoked salmon and a “sharer platter” of artisan breads and olives were selected. The main courses were indeed large - pan fried Calves Liver, 8oz Hampshire Rump Steak, Chicken Schnitzel and Chalcroft Farm Burger were ordered and heartily consumed. The food was well cooked and just right for a winters evening. I must admit that there was not much room left for the ‘puddings’ so we shared a mixture of ice creams which were also delicious.

Tracey and her team must be congratulated for their hospitality and quality of food – this has to be the best Gastro pub in Havant and well worth a visit
