The picturesque village of East Meon holds the regions’ best kept secret – the charming public house, aptly named The Izaak Walton. Named after the English poet, the delightful establishment boasts a traditional English menu that is homely and evokes a sense of nostalgia. The quintessential beer battered cod and grilled gammon steak are delicious choices especially when enjoyed in their summer garden; and the hot chocolate sponge is to die for . The High Street location can be reached easily from Petersfield and makes for the perfect weekend getaway to experience heartwarming village life.
We went for Sunday lunch as we’ve been before and can highly recommend it, I can honestly say they do the best Sunday roast, the food is always lots of it, beautifully cooked and always hot and there’s always a friendly atmosphere.. there’s always a good choice of meats and the puddings are gorgeous..I would say to always book a table as the pub gets really busy..
We had a lovely evening. As a group of 8 we were very pleased with the wide choice on the menu. The food arrived quickly. All beautifully served, good portions and fresh vegetables. The prices were also very reasonable. It was a very enjoyable evening.
Lovely food, friendly staff and local people. The pop up choir added to the evening and a game of Pool with locals went down well.
