 Thank you for visiting the Bolton Arms website

The Bolton Arms is a 15th century Grade II Listed building situated in the heart of historic Old Basing, which is a Conservation Area of outstanding beauty

Our quality wines and beers are complemented by both excellent fayre and service to create a warm welcoming atmosphere amongst the vaulted ceilings, oak beams and period features exposed during the 2008 sympathetic renovation. Or, why not relax with a cold beer or wine in the landscaped gardens on either the decking, lawns, in the shade beneath the trees or the gazebo ?

Our Menu, offers a wide range of delicious meals that include A la Carte dishes, Tapas, Bar Snacks and Nibbles that can be enjoyed seven days a week with the exception of Sunday evenings

Our Menu is freshly prepared using local produce by our Head Chef, Emily Self, on a daily basis and changes regularly to reflect the season’s offerings. If you wish to make a reservation, please contact us on 01256 819555 or email chef@thebolton.com

Please enjoy your visit to our website and, we look forward to welcoming you in the not too distant future

Thank you, Duncan, Mikki, Emily and Staff
