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.

It was the last night before lockdown and they were very busy but despite that and the impending uncertainty, the staff remained in good spirits and maintained their friendly standards of service.

Our party of four chose different dishes each of which was elegantly served and were delicious. My choice of seasonal mushroom broth was packed with autumnal flavours, was followed by partridge, pork in different ways with celeriac purée, and rounded off with lemon posset and orange sorbet. Excellent! Service was attentive and welcoming. I will certainly recommend to friends and look forward to a return visit.

Brilliant birthday meal on the Sunday before second lockdown. Delicious Sunday roast, pork belly with tasty veg and lots of gravy and apple sauce. Friendly and helpful staff and a nice, cozy country pub. Hopefully they'll be open again soon. Highly recommended by both myself and my friend.

We enjoyed our time here, the food and drinks were good and our table service was polite and fun too. We'll be returning again once the lockdown is over

Prices are to high, there were items on the menu which weren't available, I had a ribeye steak that wasn't very good. Staff were very good although could be a bit more attentive to customers.

The food was delicious but the attitude of staff was unconcerned about the problem with my booking, made a week prior to my visit. Other diners objects to the proximity of our given table and we were made to feel it was our problem by your staff ! Service was slow, we were given the wrong Qr code for the menu again with no apology! We were never offered pudding and left unattended upstairs. I and a half hours for one course! When we came down to pay and leave both staff were chatting behind the bar. Staff training needed !!! Lovely venue and food so close to our home- what a pity front of house let down a great pub!

We had a brilliant evening thank you! So nice to be able to come out and have a bit of normality. Service was 5 star as was the food and all great value. I thought the additional 'amuse bouche' was a really lovely touch - thank you for that. We'll definitely be coming back!
