The Yew Tree
“Good selection of fine wines and local ales” - AA Inspector
LOWER WIELD, HAMPSHIRE
Set in wonderful countryside, opposite a picturesque cricket pitch, the popular and enthusiastic landlord’s simple mission statement promises ‘Good honest food; great local beers; fine wines (lots of choice); and, most importantly, good fun for one and all’. There are 20 guest ale brewers on rotation, including Bowman Ales, Flowerpots and Hogs Back. Most of the food is sourced from Hampshire or neighbouring counties, and the menu reflects the seasons while keeping the regular favourites ‘to avoid uproar’. Sample dishes include gorgonzola and crispy bacon salad; or smoked duck and kumquat pâté, toast and spicy chutney, followed by Cumberland sausages, parsley mash and onion gravy; or Thai sweet potato, chickpea mushroom and bean curry with basmati rice. Finish off with cherry and mango semifreddo laced with Archers for afters. There is an annual cricket match and sports day in summer, and quizzes in the winter months.

About the area
Hampshire’s varied landscape of hills and heaths, downlands and forests, valleys and coast is without rival in southern England. Combine these varied landscapes and terrains with secluded and idyllic villages, complete with thatched and timber-framed cottages and Norman churches, elegant Georgian market towns, historic ports and cities, restored canals and ancient abbeys, forts and castles, and you have a county that is paradise for lovers of the great outdoors.
If you’re a walker, stride out across the high, rolling, chalk downland of the north Hampshire ‘highlands’ with far-reaching views, walk through steep, beech-clad ‘hangers’ close to the Sussex border. Or perhaps take a gentler stroll and meander along peaceful paths through unspoilt river valleys, etched by the sparkling trout streams of the Test, Itchen, Avon and Meon. Alternatively, wander across lonely salt marshes and beside fascinating coastal inlets or, perhaps, explore the beautiful medieval forest and heathland of the New Forest, the jewel in Hampshire’s crown.
