The Lysses House Hotel, found between Wallington and Fareham, is a building that’s richly steeped in history.
The venue was originally built in the early 19th century by Stephen Barney. The attorney built the house on a spot with strikingly beautiful views of the countryside, yet the site was already occupied by a pub called the White Horse. Although he tore down the White Horse, he built a new one, dubbed the Golden Lion, on the other side of the high street to appease the pub’s patrons.
Having changed hands over the last 200 years, going through times as a boy’s private school and an office building, the Lysses Houses Hotel became a hotel in the 1980’s, and since then has been lovingly restored to reobtain its previous Georgian feel. Now welcoming in all walks of life, from hotel guests looking to stay the night to tastecard members seeking sumptuous fare, the Lysses House Hotel is an enchanting location for any occasion.
Diners can settle into the Lounge Bar and peruse the delightful menu over a drink or two. Particularly tasty choices include the rich peppered salmon fillet, brushed with a mixed pepper butter and partnered with a salad, the spicy Cajun chicken breast, paired with avocado, and the refreshing goat’s cheese salad, tossed with garlic croutons, sun blush tomatoes and a honey and balsamic dressing.
Those visiting for a simply snack can find a wealth of scrumptious sandwiches, both cold and hot, as well as a selection of divine desserts. Perfect for a light lunch or a hearty meal with friends, the Lounge Bar at the Lysses House Hotel is a tranquil setting, whatever the guest’s mood.
Please Note: The tastecard discount is not available throughout December.
