The Baverstock Arms
Pop in for a pint at Milestones’ very own pub, The Baverstock Arms. The pub is named after Alton-born James Baverstock, a brewer and inventor who was reputedly was the first person to make use of a hydrometer in the brewing process. Located on Jubilee Street, the pub is open at lunchtimes and serves teas, coffees, soft drinks and beer. The pub has a great, family-friendly atmosphere and there is even occasionally a pianist tinkling the ivories!
