About The Greyfriar

Welcome to The Greyfriar. Surrounded by the wonderful Hampshire countryside and Chawton’s rich literary history we have been the village pub since the time of the Spanish Armada. At the heart of the village we are a family and dog friendly country pub, that offers an unrivalled range of beverages, innovative flavour packed dishes made from local ingredients and traditional pub classics cooked to perfection. The historic Hampshire village of Chawton is just off the junction of the A32 and A31 and a 15-minute walk from the centre of Alton. We are directly opposite the former home of world famous author Jane Austen and a five-minute walk from her ‘Great House’.
The Greyfriar has a large secluded garden with an extensive seating area. There is a children’s play park on the village green behind our large carpark and additional parking is available at several locations close to the pub.

The food was superb - a good range of fish, meat and vegetarian all of which were absolutely delicious. The service was excellent too with a nice touch from the kitchen offering us a complimentary amuse bouche. We can’t wait to go back once the tiers are reduced and the pub can re-open! It was a lovely way to spend Christmas Eve

The food was good but the peppercorn sauce was not peppercorn at all and was more like a gravy fairly sweet and not creamy . So disappointed.

A superb dining experience, really great service, lovely food, good ales on tap and a great setting. We were a couple with very few in the pub that night, treated to a complementary amuse Bouche, a delicious cauliflower cheese soup. My king prawns and then fish & chips were excellent, my wife’s halloumi fries, then whipped goats cheese with honeycomb and walnut salad was superb. Really good friendly, cheerful efficient service.

First visit after latest lockdown for lunch. Lovely welcome from young staff. Very few diners but this will change going forward as people become more confident. We had 3 courses, all of which were good especially the orange cake dessert which certainly had the Wow factor. Well done team at the Greyfriars, we will be back shortly.
