Turned off the M3 to find a lunchtime pint and stopped at the King Rufus on the basis that it was the first decent looking pub we came across.
The beer choice is not inspiring as it is a GK house, but it did have Ringwood Best and both this and the IPA we had were perfectly fine.
Didn't eat as they do not do sandwiches on a Sunday and were not up for the £7.95 carvery that was on offer. But plenty of people were and it looked half-decent to me.
Also it's a pretty big place with lots of separate seating areas, so when it is busy, like it was today you could find somewhere to sit.
Also it is blessed with outside bench areas to the front and one side and a large beer garden to the other side.
The garden looked like it could do with a bit of looking after as it was more worn patches than grass but I can still image in summer this would be a good place to have a pint in the sun.
