About The Village Inn

Located on Petersfield Road within the beautiful village of Buriton and only a short drive from Petersfield, the restaurant at The Village Inn is not only popular with guests staying in the charming hotel, but a local favourite too. The menu is centered around prime dry-aged steaks matured on the bone for a minimum of 30 days and then fired over white hot oak, beech, hickory and cherry wood, as well as British pub food favourites, all crafted from carefully-sourced British produce. With its stylish and modern yet quintessentially English surrounds, The Village Inn provides the perfect back drop to a special meal out with family or friends. Booking ahead is recommended, especially on the weekends.

Stayed at the village inn for one night for our wedding anniversary, booked the restaurant, lovely atmosphere, staff friendly and knowledgable regarding different steaks and fish available. Treated ourselves to the chateaubriand steak for two and we both strongly agreed that it was the best steak we've ever had, melted in your mouth. Chef Heinrich also managed the impossible , one half medium the other medium rare! Delightful. Can also recommend the white bait to start, fabulous! Also had fun choosing from the many many different gins from the gin shed. Lovely after dinner drinks. Peaceful nights sleep and lovely soak in the tub. Thank you Village Inn

Really nice friendly, clean,modern little village pub/restaurant B&B, With a great Gin Shed! Food exceptionally good, I would of given a rating of 6 if the final presentation was tweaked a little, I have the steak which I have had on different occasions, but just the faboulous steak and bowl of chips on the plate looks flat/dull ! A little salsa salad or leaf or sauce drizzle would look stunning, although tastes amazing and cooked to perfection. Highly recommend this place

Food was fantastic. Love warm plates and hot food you need to blow on before you eat it. Service was excellent. Happy to pay a bit extra for pub food which is really good. Sticky toffee pudding to die for. Decaf coffee the best I've had in a long time. We will be back. Well done guys.

LOVELY MEAL, I had Fillet Steak, medium, perfect cook, my wife had Pork Escalope, it was really lovely but it’s far too much, enjoyed the evening, the owner, Chef & waitress are made us feel welcome, we definitely go back again, many thanks.

Food was ok although quite small portions. We were there for Sunday lunch - I had pheasant which was quite tough but tasted ok although a bit lacking in taste. My son had lamb which he said was good and his girlfriend had chicken on mushroom sauce which was very small. Desserts were very small and probably frozen - very average. Staff were not very friendly or attentive and the place generally lacked atmosphere

We absolutely loved it! We'll definitely return and bring our friends - especially for the gin shed (and the breakfast Heinrich!). Our 2 night stay, to attend a friends wedding, turned into a delightful mini-break.
