The Wyke Down

The Wyke Down is a country pub on the outskirts of Andover. The early nineteenth-century barn has been extensively but sympathetically extended to provide a pub with an historical country feel, whilst offering an open modern experience.

Our spacious dining area is suitable for all occasions from family lunches to corporate functions.

There are dog-friendly areas, a games room with pool table and darts board, as well as a separate function room.

There is also an open sun-trapped conservatory overlooking the surrounding countryside and a large fenced garden with a children's play area, plenty of benches and loads of parking.

New Era

Tash has come from an hotel sales, marketing and events background, while Ben has run several bars and was a brewer for Dark Revolution in Salisbury.

We now want to combine our skills to provide you with a food-focused country pub offering a relaxed friendly service at a reasonable price, regular fun events and a great venue for family or corporate events, which we can help you plan.

We are open Tuesday to Sunday offering traditional pub food, fresh home-cooked dishes using locally sourced ingredients and a great selection of drinks which changes frequently whilst maintaining your favourites too.

We look forward to welcoming you
