Description: (From their site) Originally built as a Queen Anne Hunting Lodge in the 1600’s, set in five acres of scenic grounds. Close to many local attractions such as Weavers Down, a protected area of scientific interest, where there are many excellent walks.
After short ride out of Liphook we arrived in the dark at the Deer Hut pub, which has a little camp site attached.
As we were parking up at the pub a gentleman stepped out of the pub for a smoke. Had one look at us said “You camping?” “Yes please,” we said.
“I might not look it, but I am the owner” he said with a smile as he showed us to our spot.
Eleven other groups were already there but we got a side paddock all for ourselves separated from the others by a tall hedge.
The site has a toilet, one for the ladies and one for the gents and one 20p hot shower. Pretty much all you need when camping next to a pub. A little noise from the A3 and Gatwick, I think, but that was nothing compared to what nature can muster, at 4:30am.
We were lucky to get some food served after the kitchen had closed, which was very nice. We had to wait a little before we got the food, since the chef had to put the kids to bed first. We didn’t mind at all cause the wait wasn’t long and two plates with veggie Kiev and Lincolnshire sausages served with chips and salad was very numnum and hit the spot.
We then retired to our tent, and had a good old sleep.

Very friendly staff and we were greeted with a smile. Very little space, and we had a little corner to ourself. There is toilets inside and outside the pub, where they serve very enjoyable pub grub. The 20p shower, is a bit of a minus when you are used to having the show included in the price.
