The Bat and Ball at Hambledon.
Great food, beer is good being from the local brewery, Gales at Horndean, which unfortunately has just been bought out.
This pub is the mecca (can I say that now?) for cricket buffs. Well worth a visit even if you are not into cricket.

The only place I know you can get Zebra and chips.  Or Wildebeest, or camel, or impala, or crocodile.

Excellent place with a good normal menu, too.

The Vine at Hambledon.
Highlander1 and I dropped in for a pint and and sarnie there last week. Excellent ale and great sarnies. We decided that we would have to pay a second vist for an evening meal with my dear lady.
However different story. Service was absolutlely awful. We arrived for the table booking at 8pm and then sat around waiting for someone to show us to the table and get us menus. I then tried to order some more drinks and stood at the bar with an empty glass strategically placed, while the bar lad chatted to his mate and ignored me.
HL1 had a similar experience, namely when he was getting some drinks, he was halfway through being served, the bar lad stopped what he was doing and started serving a group that had literally just walked in! Not impressed!
It is a real shame, because it is a nice pub, the food is good and the landlord really knows his beers

in Odiham there is a place called Bluebeckers and provided it hasn’t changed the service is excellent, the food is great and its a wonderful restaurant
