Andover is an attractive market town, many of whose buildings are from the 18th century, when it was an important stop-over destination for coaches on route to London, Southampton and Oxford. The town’s High Street hosts a street market every Thursday and Saturday. It also boasts an array of retail stores, restaurants and bars, as well as local attractions.
In the town centre, the Andover Museum, Museum of the Iron Age and The Lights contemporary arts venue are all well worth a visit, as well as, for nature-lovers, Rooksbury Mill Local Nature Reserve and Anton Lakes Local Nature Reserve. Stonehenge is just 18 miles away, straight down the A303, making the hotel the perfect base from which to explore the ancient stones, Salisbury Plain and the Test Valley, while the beautiful historic cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are 16 and 19 miles away, respectively.
Their new look bar and restaurant has a good reputation locally for their home cooked food and they serve a fantastic selection of real ales, premium lagers and fine wines.
The 30 en-suite bedrooms each include a Freeview television and unlimited free WiFi, with digital temperature control also in all rooms. A large and welcoming bar and dining area, with an additional roof terrace, forms the pub, making The John Russell Fox a perfect place to stay – for families, leisure and business.
