The Weyhill Fair Celebrates One Year of TradingThe Weyhill Fair have now been trading successfully for a full year.

Business Partners Barry Long and Mark Lazenby took over the popular village pun and restaurant in May/June 2014 and are really pleased with how the first year has been.

MArk told Andover & Villages, “We have really enjoyed the consistency of our regulars with array of new customers, young and old.

“The team pride themselves on their customer service and the quality of the food we serve.”

The Weyhill Fair carried out a large refurbishment in early January 2015, which included the addition of new tables, chairs and blinds, giving the popular local pub and restaurant a complete overhaul.

The Weyhill Fair menu offers customers a number of traditional dishes, as well as some old favourites.

The chef changes the menu regularly to entice customers to try new dishes. The bulk of the meals are home-made and home cooked, using local produce as much as possible.

Best sellers on the menu are a choice between the Hampshire carved Ham with home cooked chips, home-made coleslaw and free range eggs or the catch of the day, haddock in home-made London Pride beer batter served with hand cooked chips and home-made tartar sauce with either garden or mushy peas.

Mark said, “Barry and I are really glad that we made our business partnership.

“We feel that we are ‘bringing the pub back into the community’ and have received a really positive response from the local community, who have mentioned that we have brought the pub back to life.”

The Weyhill Fair have recently been awarded their certificate of excellence from Trip Advisor, the prestigious award is given to businesses who gain consistent positive feedback on the Trip Advisor website.

The Weyhill Fair have a fantastic indoor restaurant, bar and garden area and are open 7 day a week. Pop along for a friendly chat, a meal and to say hello to ‘Pride’ the resident dog!
