We called off here on the way back home to Dorset, and were very pleasantly surprised. Everything seems so well ordered and the staff are smiling and helpful. One word of caution, if you are driving, beware the potholes in the road as you approach.

If you go here go on a empty stomach. The portions are massive And real good value for money. The steak is about the best you can get around the area. The whole menu is fabulous

I wanted to do the 4 mile walk around Hinton Ampner , I was wondering is there access to do this all the time or if it is part of the opening times and do you have to pay an entrance fee?

You can certainly do most of the walk, which is outside the NT-controlled garden. For anything inside you would need to respect opening times and fees, but I don't think it would affect your walk significantly.
