A PROMINENT Hampshire pub has officially reopened its doors following an extensive transformation.

The Cart and Horses just off the M3, A33 and A34 on London Road at Kings Worthy is welcoming customers after a six-figure refurbishment that has overhauled the interior.

General manager Matthew Beany said: “Our brand-new pub and restaurant offers something for everyone. We’re all about good food and drink in a friendly, relaxed environment. Our spring menu ensures you can indulge in seasonal, wholesome food – start with halloumi fries or chilli and garlic king prawns, followed by slow-cooked lamb shoulder or seabass and scallop risotto.

“We also have a great choice of pub classics and every Sunday we put on the perfect roasts – served with all the trimmings. The new surroundings will make you feel like you are at home and we will offer full-service at your table, letting our guests sit back and relax as soon as they walk through the door – we will do all the hard work!”
