The Upham pub group just seems to get better and better. Take this spot-on example in the quaint Hampshire village of Overton. The pub has been a presence there for over five centuries and today, restored by Upham, it feels truly cared for and rather special, its character and charm enriched with quirky and lavish touches. There are plenty of choices for a convivial drink: the warm and cosy snug, the village bar or the sun-trapped garden patio. As for dining, an excellent classic yet modern menu is served in the pretty wood-floored dining room. The 12 bedrooms are a cut above too: individually designed, comfy and attractive, with colourful throws on luxurious beds. And this is such an appealing part of Hampshire, with attractions such as Odiham Castle and Whitchurch Silk Mill close at hand. Jane Austen fans, take note: the village of Steventon, where she was born and raised, is three miles away and guided tours can be arranged. Doubles from £104.

Buy: Upham Brewery’s Punter is a popular ale, with a rich ochre in colour, the beer is delicate yet structured with hints of syrup and toasted grain. The earthy richness on the palate brings with it a hoppy, dry finish. A perfect gift for ale lovers.
