A nice hidden away locals boozer, five handpumps with four beers on. T.T Landlord, Doom Bar, London Pride, Courage Best and a turned clip for Flack Manor Double Drop, a very pedestrian beer range, with a bit more adventure this could be a cracker, as it is, it's mid-table.

A traditional ‘honest’ backstreet boozer, the Lardicake retains a number of period features and has a nice bit of stained glass above the main door picking out the name. The interior is a fairly basic affair, with stripped wood floor and impressive fireplace. Pool, darts and live TV football all available on my visit. What puts this one a level above is the well-kept ale (Tim Taylor Landlord, Pride and Banks Mild) on my visit. I also spotted Westons Stowford Press on keg, which I always enjoy. Clientele mainly in their 40’s, lively but well-behaved.

Undoubtedly one of Andover’s better offerings, I’d be happy to do this one again next time.

An honest boozer housed in a victorian building in a back street, it looks a little like a substantial suburban villa. Inside it has a large open plan room on two levels, traditionally decorated and furnished, it has the bareboards, open fires, and tongue and groove wainscotting of the style. The bar counter runs down the middle of one side wall carrying four handpumps and two T Bars, a fairly mainstream choice of ales, Landlord, Pride and Ringwood best but all in fine condition, the pub is a GBG regular, although the Taylors loses something in being served southern "sans sparkler". The fourth handpull has a cloudy cider, usual kegs on the T bars, the cider is Bulmers and the stout Guinness. The front area entering from the main door, with the pub's name set into the floor, is decorated with drinks advertising mirrors and a collection of whisky jugs and a big screen. The lower level, at the rear is a sort of games area with a pool table big screen and machines, this area is decorated with old photographs. Friendly sort of place with a mixed age range although maybe over 30s in the main. There is a garden at the back.
