A Message from Russ Kitching – Owner

As a local manufacturer of drinks, we had been supplying The Lapstone for many years. When we heard that Enterprise Inns were selling off the property potentially for demolition and housing, we decided to step in. 

Being at the centre of the local community for nearly 300 years, including during two World Wars, we wanted to restore the Lapstone and create a community hub.

As part of the refurbishment process, we decided to strip back the building to highlight its original features and create a justifiable extension for the wider community.

Our vision is to support local producers and growers with a strong emphasis on good local food and drink, putting Hampshire and in particular the villages of Horton Heath and Fair Oak on the map.

This journey has certainly been a rollercoaster, facing several obstacles on the way including COVID 19 disruption.

But we remain determined to deliver the values of community and local supply, promoting passion and pride in the Lapstone to continue the building's legacy into the future.

Our Food

Provenance is key to our success at The Lapstone and we have developed relationships with the best local suppliers to keep consistency of quality. Proudly serving delicious food and independent ales and beers, we bring you the best seasonal menu, curated with families in mind to produce the best eating experience possible.

Our menus, designed by chefs Marco and Pino, bring a splash of authentic Italian cuisine, showcasing the best ingredients in simple, delicious and family-friendly meals.
