Set in the New Forest, this traditional, family-friendly village pub offers a cheerful, hearty welcome, Fuller’s ales tapped from the cask & good food. Burgundy-red walls catch the eye, while low-beamed ceilings, bare floorboards & a winter fire add that all important old-fashioned touch. The kitchen’s repertoire suits all appetites & wallets, with a symbol highlighting dishes using produce from the New Forest area. While walkers, cyclists & diehards might tuck into doorstep sandwiches or generous plates of fish & chips, blackboard specials reveal the kitchen’s ambition with the likes of whole baked John Dory with coriander & chilli, spring onion oil, sweet potato, asparagus & courgette. The secluded garden is a crowd-puller in good weather.
