As part of a family that is passionate about the authentic pub experience, we believe that being part of the local community is key to achieving this.
That’s why we like to support the local community; helping to promote and support local events, fundraising for local charities and building relationships with fellow groups, teams and businesses in the area…

BRAND NEW Hart Leisure Centre
We love to see new developments and attractions for the local community and the brand new multi-million pound Hart Leisure Centre has certainly drawn a lot of attention and excitement. Did you know that our local leisure centre offers a multitude of activities to keep the local community active, including a 130-station gym featuring TRX, Powerplate and Watt Bike equipment; Three swimming pools, a climbing wall, 4 group exercise studios and 6 football pitches (including 2 junior FA grass pitches, a full-size artificial pitch and 4 3G pitches for 5-a-side games). If you haven’t visited yet, it’s worth checking it out.
As of 2018, The Exchequer is very proud to be supporting Hampshire charity Piggles Trust as it’s Charity of the Year. This charity aims to bring much needed early years educational facilities to children’s wards in hospitals across the country.
Did you know that education is currently provided within hospitals on a very rare and ad-hoc basis? Across the board, no provision at all is made for pre-school aged children, who may be fighting illness or disease, despite this being such a crucial learning stage. Outside of the hospital environment, it forms an integral part of their development as well as a means for them to form friendships and most importantly, being a child.
By raising money for Piggles Trust, the charity is putting every penny towards creating a team of Nursery Nurses within all Children’s Hospitals to provide vital educational provisions which are currently so lacking.
As of January 2018, we will donate 50p of every kid’s meal sold to Piggles Trust; so not only will your little ones be enjoying a tasty bite to eat, but they’ll also be doing their bit for this wonderful charity as well!
Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance
We also support Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, which runs a vital and often life-saving service. We want to help keep this great cause alive so please enjoy a pint of Red Mist Ale and feel good knowing that every sip is going towards a noble and community-driven cause.
Red Mist Ale
As part of our commitment to HIOWAA we will donate 20p from every pint of Red Mist Ale poured here at The Exchequer.

We are dedicated to sourcing from British farmers and producers and using only sustainable ingredients, so we work hard to build great working relationships with our suppliers, from the gin in our perfect G&Ts to the perfectly cooked steak on your plate, to the oil in your salad and the ice cream to satisfy your sweet tooth.
We are also proud members of Hampshire Fare, further championing local ingredients and working together with the county to promote local ingredients and fantastic talent this county has to offer.
