After what seems like a lifetime, lockdown rules are beginning to ease and we can finally head out for good & drink. Although it can be a little on the chilly side, I’m sure many agree that having to wear an extra layer or two is well worth it for a little normality.
Here I am listing my top 5 pubs in Hampshire which are accessible for everyone. If you haven’t visited any of the below, I would highly recommend to do so!
Remember – make sure to call & book as right now many of us are finding it very hard to get a table. Whether you are waiting until a later date to head on out or you are happy to get out there right away – it gives us all something to look forward to.

The Peat Spade Inn
First up we have The Peat Spade Inn. Situated in the gorgeous village of Longstock and just down the road from the wonderful Stockbridge. They have the most beautiful garden, perfect for a summers day and a log fire inside for warm cosy winter nights. Breakfast, lunch & evening meals are served – the food is delicious. All areas of the pub are accessible, guide dogs are permitted, and they have a ramp and handrail at the front of the building. I would definitely recommend visiting.
The Hampshire Hog
The Hampshire Hog in Fareham is next on my list. This pub also serves great food and the menu includes locally source produce. There’s an outdoor play area of the little ones and seating with the beautiful view of the South Downs. Family friendly and perfect for summer drinks outside in the sunshine. The Hampshire Hog is wheelchair user accessible with a disabled toilet and disabled parking on site making it simple & easy to visit.
The Royal Oak
This country pub situated in a beautiful English village offers great accessibility, a pretty garden and a covered outdoor seating area. The Royal Oak in Lasham is just a few miles from Alton. They offer a classic pub menu along with fabulous seasonal specials. Offering a delicious roast on Sunday this place is perfect to visit during spring time for a spot to eat and drink.
The Half Moon and Spread Eagle
Now if the funky name isn’t enough to make you want to visit, their traditional games room, cosy bar with a wood burner, fantastic restaurant and the brilliant classic pub atmosphere will get you wanting to pop in for a drink or two! The Half Moon and Spread Eagle pub has great accessibility and disabled loo’s. Situated in the stunning village of Micheldever, you can enjoy the view of the former village cricket ground. If you do decide to visit, make sure to check out the hand-picked wine list – they have something for everyone!
Last but certainly not least we have the wonderful Greyhound in Stockbridge. The Greyhound is always receiving the most wonderful reviews from their customers. Now with a fantastic covered area out the back, you can enjoy a drink and a bite to eat whilst watching the sunset – how lovely does that sound? Food is fantastic, setting is gorgeous and the staff are incredible.
Many of our Live-in Care clients live in and around Hampshire and we understand the importance for those that require good accessibility when visiting pubs & restaurants. We hear so many great stories from our clients receiving Live-in Care of the times the Carers take them out and so many of them love to visit a beautiful pub garden enjoying great food & drink. It fills me with happiness to know how many people we have helped and the wonderful things our clients are able to do with the help of a Live-in Carer. With lockdown lifting, I’m excited to hear even more stories!
