The Palm Brasserie


Palm Brasserie is a modern, destination dining venue just outside of Basingstoke and is situated between Oakley and Overton on the busy Andover Road (B3400). The venue is a magnificent transformation of the former Deane Gate Inn, a historic venue on this route which is soaked in its history as a coach inn and its association with Jane Austen. 

The venue has been aesthetically designed with multiple private dining zones, a beautiful main restaurant area that can cater to couples and groups. It also has an outdoor/alfresco area to seat another 40-50, great for summer months and sunny days for dining out. As such, the venue is versatile to host large family socials or corporate gatherings as well as wedding receptions, baby showers, etc. 

They offer the following services: 

All-day dining with service hours from 12 noon to 10 pm on most days, and up to 11pm on Saturdays.

An Afternoon Tea service on all days, from 12 noon to 5pm - with 3 offerings (standard, cocktail and champagne versions of Afternoon Tea). They pride themselves on their signature Afternoon Tea which is also known for its special take on the savoury bites (veg and non-veg) in place of the traditional sandwiches to go with the sweet treats

A Sunday roast menu for Sunday lunches which is very popular.

Cocktail Masterclass sessions for groups, a perfect pre-meal event for family or corporate groups (a great team-building activity too).
