Jekyll & Hyde, Hartley Wespall, Hook, Hampshire, RG27 0AX
The Jekyll & Hyde is currently categorised as a 'Great Pub Great Food' operation due to it's traditional offer, serving quality food and drink to more upmarket rural communities with good old fashioned hospitality. At a first glance, the pub looks like a small roadside operation, but on entering the property, its true size becomes apparent and it is one of the key dining establishments in this very busy area.
The surrounding area is dominated by the Duke of Wellington’s Stratfield Saye estate. Wellington Country Park is a mere 3 miles away just off the A33 and attracts many visitors to their family orientated events and beautiful grounds. There are many popular walks across the farm and woodland areas surrounding the Jekyll & Hyde on both sides of the A33.
The local roads abound with cycling groups making the most of the good road network. The area also benefits from many affluent large (and ever growing) villages. Basingstoke and Reading are within easy commute, either via the A33, or the railway link between the two which stops in Reading West, Mortimer and Bramley.
