The Three Cups has been a favourite dinner spot for me and one of my best friends Claire for years - because they have a lovely cosy atmosphere and delicious food. Set in a small countryside town of Stockbridge in Hampshire, the pub boasts a consistently busy atmosphere throughout the seasons, a lovely seasonal menu with a variety of vegetarian, meat and fish dishes - and excellent service. Every time we've eaten there or just enjoyed a drink, we've always felt like the staff were attentive and friendly.

Claire and I visited The Three Cups again on one of our girly dinner dates and I decided to finally whip the camera out to take some snaps and review this pub. First of all, let me start with the bread. They serve you homemade complimentary bread whilst you wait for you food and it is possibly my favourite part because the bread is so delicious. It comes in a cute wooden box filled with butter, salt and oils - it's simply something you just have to try for yourself.

 For starters we ordered their goats cheese salad which is served with tomatoes, asparagus, balsamic glaze AND garlic ice cream. It was the garlic ice cream that won me over - I really wanted to try it out, and actually the combinations of creamy goats cheese and the sharpness of the balsamic glaze went extremely well with the flavour of garlic. The fact it was ice cream just sent your taste buds into a spin as you expect it to be sweet. I really enjoyed the starter - it's perfect if you're after something light and flavoursome.

As for main, I had The Three Cups Burger which I have had so many times and remember it always being delicious and HUGE! The portion is very big, so be prepared to tackle it with all your might. I asked for my burger to be cooked medium rare and the chef did a fab job. This burger comes with a caramelised onion topping, chunky chips, onion rings and salad but it's a lot more tasty than your average pub burger. Honestly, give it a go if you're hungry and a fan of burgers.

I would highly recommend The Three Cups to anyone in the area for a nice, chilled out meal followed by drinks in a cosy atmosphere. And you'll probably catch me there too!
