Boasting everything you could ever want in a local pub: cosy decor complete with roaring open fires, a warm and welcoming vibe, a well stocked bar, and a menu of hearty British cuisine and pub food favourites all crafted from scratch using the best local produce, it is no wonder that the people of Upham all flock to The Brushmakers Arms, whether it's for a few pints in the evening, a leisurely pub lunch or to take part in the monthly quiz night. Open seven days a week for both lunch and dinner, you’ll find The Brushmakers Arms located on Shoe Lane, and it attracts guests from all over the Southampton area. To guarantee a table, making a reservation in advance is recommended.
This is a great locals pub with great food, great beer/wine and very friendly. Unfortunately, it seems that they are victims of their success as it was very busy when we went on a Sunday lunchtime, and despite booking in advance, meal options had already run out with no mains vegetarian option on the menu whatsoever, and the kitchen were struggling to cope, leading to a very long wait. However, basically a good visit and we would definitely recommend it and go again, but a bit nearer to opening next time!
Lovely old pub in beautiful Hampshire village. Booked for 9. We all liked the environment , the staff and very definitely the choice of food of excellent quality.
