Thank you for considering us and, we will hopefully see you in 2023 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all at the Bolton Arms 

Welcome back as of Saturday the 15th October !

We’re back to normal hours as of today and, look forward to welcoming you

During our recent closure, ironically, we won three major Awards of recognition :-

Best Restaurant in Basingstoke Award 

5* Rating from TrustPilot 

and for the second year in a row a –

2022 Traveller’s Choice Award from Tripadvisor

plus, for the last 15 years the Dept of Environmental Health have awarded us a

So, maybe we should take more breaks ?!

Our thanks to all who voted for us and, hopefully, see you soon. Duncan, Mikki, Emily and Staff, x
