A welcome (and unexpected!) revisit. No changes since my last session, this time saw 4 ales on (two straight from the barrel and two from pump). For a bit of comparison I tried one from each dispense method (both Otter beers) and struggled to tell the pump beer from the barrel one, so good was the condition (NBSS 4). An absolute cracker, any self-respecting pubman must make their way here at least once.

Recent revisit found things ticking over pretty much as they have done since 2009. Managed to lose bar billiards from a winning margin of 400. The fact I made no notes of what I had to drink gives you a further clue as to why. Still an excellent place well-worth seeking out. Note that this is a cash-only pub. Rated 9

Very English low-beamed country pub - open log fires, quarry tile floor, brasses, old plaster walls, church pew seats with a good atmosphere and friendly staff. One or two of the locals seem a bit sniffy if they don't recognise you as a regular but they are a small minority, most are fine and expect visitors outside of the immediate area. A decent selection of beer (Ringwood Boondongle; Rebellion Blonde; Branscombe Branoc) is on, served in good nick from either handpump or stillage. Basic food (baguettes) available. Other features are darts, bar billiards. No TV or music, just chatter. Gets better with each visit, a really lovely country pub. Rated 9

Tiny rustic little village pub ,basically one room although has a nook and cranny aspect to it.It was well populated on my midweek lunchtime visit.The walls and ceiling beams were furnished with horse brasses and various agricultural harnesses and other devices.On the bar were two handpumps dispensing Ringwood Best and Palmers Dorset Gold,behind the bar were 4 firkins, two in operation, two resting,available were,West Berks Mr Chubb's Lunchtime Bitter,and something from Loddon Brewery I fail to remember.My pint of Mr Chubb's went down very well aided and abetted with a Bacon and Brie Baguette.A top country pub and if you can get there ,do so.
