Nice country pub lunch on the A34 between Oxford and Winchester (UK)?

I'm off on a longish drive down to the Dorset coast a week tomorrow. Would like to stop off for a spot of lunch, and I'm thinking at some point on the A34 between Oxford and Winchester. Does anyone know of a nice gastropub type establishment close by? Say, within a 10 - 15 minute drive of the main road? Would much prefer a rural setting than going into Oxford as well.

Googling is a bit of a lottery, and I don't know the area well so any suggestions would be much appreciated. Budget not really an issue, although I would prefer traditional to Fat Duck style cuisine. Thanks!

Best answer: Use the Good Food Guide for this.

I took a quick look and see The White Hart in Fyfield for example.

Near Winchester, I see the Plough Inn in LongParish, the Three Tuns in Romsey and a few more.

If anyone else has any personal suggestions though, please feel free to share.

Best answer: I've been to the White Hart and really enjoyed it. Nice little town to take a walk in, too.
