Kelly’s Cafe – 42 Hiltingbury Rd, Chandlers Ford SO53 3SS – 02381 789194
An unpretentious cafe in the old style. Always a welcome to be had. Parking. The owner is friendly and if you are on your own you do not feel uncomfortable.
The Potters Heron – Ampfield, Romsey SO51 9ZF – 02380 277 800
A lovely thatched privately-owned hotel and restaurant, great for having coffee and a long chat. The staff never give the impression that you have overstayed your welcome. Lunch is good too.

Supermarkets / Shops
There are several in Chandlers Ford, but I visit Waitrose on Oakmount Road – it’s not too big. I am not keen on large supermarkets. Tesco in Ashdown Road is a friendly convenience shop. The staff are very friendly but parking can be challenging.
Andersons Newsagents – 85 Hiltingbury Road, Chandlers Ford, SO53 5NQ
They offer to deliver papers and magazines etc. They sell sweets and all that you would expect from a well organised shop.
