50% off at The Bugle Inn

Cornwall's Bugle Inn is a friendly and relaxed environment where guests can eat, drink and soak up the ambience. An ideal stop of point when visiting Winchester in Hampshire, the inn prides itself on good quality food made from locally sourced ingredients.

The Bugle Inn prides itself on delivering sumptuous pub food and exceptional guest experience. Utilising ingredients from the local area gives the menu a seasonal variance given availability, ensuring a pure, fresh and full flavour. The menu is considered smaller than similar establishments but an importance is placed in quality over quantity.

With a considerable discount of 50% off your food bill as a tastecard member, it would be wrong not to sample a couple of the dishes on offer. For starters, try the creamy Hampshire goat’s cheese and beetroot salad served on a bed of Romsey watercress, drizzled in honey mustard dressing, lightly toasted pine nuts, orange, shiso cress and Laverstoke roasted beets. Alternatively, the Cornish Mussels nestled in a white wine, cream and garlic reduction are a culinary delight.

Room for mains? For the carnivores among us can indulge in a meat feast with the Bugle Inn’s wild boar burger topped with mozzarella and rustic chips, or a juicy 28 day aged 10oz Sirloin steak. Veggie? Try the lightly spiced aubergine, lentil and spinach dahl with cauliflower, pea shoots, picante dressing, persilade potatoes and tomato concasse.

Once you have sated your appetite, be sure to explore what the area as to offer; a visit to the Stanlake Park Wine Estate or Bingham’s Brewery. Both in close proximity to the Inn and come highly recommended by previous visitors.

    The menu and choices available in this write up are nothing like what is described in the write up for this place.

    It is basic pub grub....and very poor at that. We had a meal here this evening. Even though I wrote the meals down for them (the poor woman behind the bar was trying to serve drinks as well as bring meals out to tables....and it was only her second day) they still managed to mess up the starters and only bring out 2 instead of 4. So 2 people ate theirs whilst the other 2 waited for theirs to be cooked.

    When my breaded Brie came...it looked like 2 battered sausages. Brie...in thick batter...with iceberg lettuce and a tomato on the side. My friends with potato skins said the skins were soft and the filling tasteless and white...like it had been frozen and microwaved.

    The main courses. Lasagne was from a jar or frozen. Definitely not homemade. I chose bacon and cheeseburger as it was in a brioche bun...rather than the American burger that said it was a seeded bun. I got a seeded bun anyway. They asked if I wanted skinny or normal chips and I said skinny. I got normal ones. When I tasted them they had a hideous taste to them like either the oil needed changing or lots of different things had been fried in the same oil. I couldn't eat any of them.

    The coleslaw served with it was off. I got a couple of the others to try it...most definitely off.

    The garlic bread on my friends plate had eggshell on it!!!

    When a guy came to collect our plates, I discreetly told him a couple of things that were wrong. He said he would tell the chef.

    Nobody came over and so when I went to pay the bill , I mentioned it to the lady that had come out of the kitchen. She wasn't aware of it...it hadn't been passed on to her. She did apologise and say she would address the issues. She said the coleslaw had been made that morning...the mayonnaise must have been off!

    We paid the bill and left. I wouldn't usually leave a review like this. But I chose this place to meet friends based on the reviews I had read. I'm not sure what has happened here...whether the chef has left or was ill or something else. But it is not worth the prices even with a tastecard at the moment and I feel it's only fair to be honest incase other people are looking for a place for a special evening...as I was. "
