We had lunch here in a small but adequate dining room, ( we were the only customers!) The food was good and edible, and drinks from the bar available.
You need to check beforehand if the restaurant is open, our last attempt to eat there was unsuccessful as they only open on certain days!

We popped in for lunch and chose a filled baguette from the limited (but acceptable) choice on offer to eat in the bar. The food was fine. Service was prompt.

There was only one Real Ale on offer despite the web site promising a choice of Real Ales in the plural. The beer on sale was an Adnams pint which was good but the lack of choice was disappointing.

This was an acceptable but unexceptional experience and not one conducive to enticing us to make a return visit anytime soon. There were very few other patrons. Maybe we just called in at a quiet time.

Stopped for lunch opted for New York Steak Gourmet Burger and Veggie Burger, that the price, expected something other than off the shelf burgers. Assume in Alresford Gourmet means a Bamboo splint sticking out of it!

Decor stock tired English Pub with two radios playing,(why?) did get one turned down though thanks. Staff cheery enough just doing a job.

Had a meal here a few years back, wasn't bad, and reading the other reviews it looks as though they can make the effort. Just not for lunch mid week, not inclination to go back.

always a great meal and wonderful beer - beer garden with inflatables and often live music and bbq. Monthly themed night and great sunday roasts. Neil and Sam really know how to run a country pub.

The Pointer is a welcoming pub lounge nice and warm but eating area was cold when we visited in January 2017 for lunch. Asked about gluten free before booking was told options available on day but we found it to be limited on arrival. I recommend this establishment but could do much better with gluten free options.
