Ye Olde George Inn
“Medieval inn set in a lovely village” - AA Inspector
EAST MEON, HAMPSHIRE
In the beautiful countryside of the Meon Valley, the setting for this delightful 15th-century coaching inn is hard to beat. The village boasts a magnificent Norman church where tapestry designs similar to Bayeux can be found. If you want heavy beams, inglenook fireplaces and wooden floors, look no further – they’re all here, creating an ideal atmosphere for enjoy a pint of Badger Best Bitter or Westons cider. The kitchen team make everything in house for their monthly-changing menus (except the ice cream which is made on a local farm) – so expect dishes such as salt and pepper squid; potato skin and leek soup, poached egg and parmesan crisp; Casterbridge 28-day aged rib-eye steak with triple-cooked chips; and roasted cod loin with pea, chorizo and mint risotto. There are tables outside on the pretty patio.

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.
