Set in Kingsclere, Bel and The Dragon-Kingsclere features a restaurant, bar, garden, and free WiFi. Private parking can be arranged at an extra charge. This is a 400 year old inn and it retains all the charm of its past. There are five fireplaces on the main floor and all of them were kept up while we were there, as the weather was cold and rainy. The main rooms are separated into a pub and a restaurant with lots of old red brick and the original wood beams. The bedroom was cosy but everything needed was there including whiskey for sipping. The king-sized bed was very comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious. The two managers were so good at creating the feel of returning home and being welcomed.
Located near Tadley, 8.1 mi from Basingstoke, George & Dragon Hotel Wolverton Townsend offers accommodations with a restaurant, two open fires and spacious 2.5 acres of gardens. Had a wonderful stay at the George and Dragon. We’d spent most of our day out walking. It had been pretty blustery and cold so to walk into our warm, very clean and perfectly formed room was just what we needed. Had a fabulous evening meal and slept like a log on super comfy bed. Great pillows too! Breakfast the following morning set us up for the day ahead. All the staff were warm and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Just great all round!

Kingsclere is a small village with two pubs a beautiful church and adequate services in terms of shops - a butcher, chemist and two grocery shops. It was less what Kingsclere had to offer but its location within an area with plenty of places to visit and with much to do. It was nice to be away from the pace of life these days but close enough to reconnect simply and quickly whenever you wanted to.
Nice village with several pubs. Good walking at Watership Down nearby. I ate at Bel and the Dragon but there are other places in the village. If one wished one could drive to Newbury or Basingstoke easily too.
Very friendly helpful locals - humans and dogs both! Great place to start walks on foot. Gin abounds - Sipsmith and other small distillery gins and Fevertree tonics Bel and the Dragon good to eat at. We were told some of the big name jockeys and trainers were in for pre Cheltenham talks. We aren't race aficionados ourselves but being near the gallops and seeing mares and leggy foals in the paddocks - it was nice to soak in some of the atmosphere particular to here.
Small village with some good hostelries off the main road. Try the Crown for food and the Bel and the Dragon if you drink wine. The George and Horn has comfortable accomodation. For a small village it has a good variety.

Kingsclere is a fine old English village with a Norman / Early English church and some medieval buildings together with a fine terrace of 18th century cottages and larger houses in the main street. It is set in the glorious countryside of the North Hampshire downs which rise to over 900 feet and command marvellous views to the north and west.
The landlord was very helpful and looked after us, a real gentleman.
Location and grounds are great, Food is good and Staff are friendly.
