A new addition to The Cromwell Arms is its fixed price menu served 12pm to 3pm, Monday to Friday.

A kids' menu is also available.

Productions of Opera in the Garden and Shakespeare in the Garden will be taking place at the pub, with more to be announced throughout the year.

The pub is also available for private functions such as corporate events and birthday parties. Its marquee is up in the warmer months from April to October and makes for a stunning venue. Available for exclusive hire, the marquee has a private bar and is a blank canvas that can be decorated to suit individual events.

As well as a new look, the pub now has a new general manager Sean Knight. Sean has worked at several Fuller’s pubs over the years and brings with him a wealth of experience and plenty of enthusiasm.

Sean said: “I am delighted that the doors of The Cromwell Arms have reopened. The pub looks incredible and my team and I are raring to go.

“The Cromwell Arms has something for everyone. It’s a stunning spot on the edge of town giving you brilliant access to so many beautiful walks in the surrounding Hampshire countryside.

"We have 14 boutique bedrooms, so it’s the perfect place for anyone looking for an overnight stay before heading off on a cruise from Southampton, or just wanting to spend a night or two to get to know the local area. We are, of course, dog-friendly too so you can bring your four-legged friend along on your adventure. My team and I look forward to welcoming you.”
