The interior of this old town pub is well described by Komakino, below, plus there is a patio and garden room at the back. The staff were pleasant, and most of the customers were relatively civilised. I found it a bit fussy at times – a waitress made a big thing about lighting candles, there was some tutting as we asked the locals blocking the bar to let us see the pumps, and it seemed a bit false in places. A Fullers pub, most of the ales were their own – Seafarer, faux-HSB, London Pride and Bohemian Way. There was a guest, Proper Job, which is what we went for and was in good condition, but it was hideously overpriced, as was the basic pub grub. It’s OK if you don’t mind paying excessive prices for ordinary beer.

A cosy locals' pub with dark, low beams, flagstone floor and chunky wooden tables. Likely a multi-roomer in a previous incarnation, this has a dining area to the left separated from the main bar by an open, central fireplace which was pleasingly ablaze on my early Thursday evening visit. The five-ale line-up included Chiswick favs London Pride and ESB, with the subsumed Seafarers and HSB and a guest in Bateman's Colonel Whisker's, which was sadly Sarsonesque. The HSB was in better shape, but steep at £2.10 for a half. Food is of the pub grub variety and there's a host of bar snacks behind the bar, along with a Sahara nuts glass box sitting atop. There's the odd horse brass, faux copper pans for decoration and pewter tankards above the bar which all add to pleasant ambience of the place. Not an award-winner in my eyes, but enough boxes ticked here and wouldn't be a bad start were you to begin Hamble mini-crawl from this place.

It's a landlord and 'locals' pub but you always get a warm welcome. Open Mon-Thu 10:30am-11:30pm; Fri 10:30am-12pm; Sat 10am-12pm; Sun 10am-11:30pm. Ye Olde Whyte Harte was built around 1563, although some of the timbers come from ships in the 1400s. The bar features one of the oldest windows in the UK, which is listed with English Heritage, so you get the picture that it's a nice place to have a 'light ale' The foods great, but you pay a bit more in this part of Hampshire. A fullers pub so Pride, HSB, ESB and Discovery on tap. Don't know if it's got London connections but it's got that sort of feeling which is strange for a pub on the South coast in a sailing village. The clientel is 'yellow wellie' orientated in the Summer. I hear there's a lock-in at the week-ends. Anyhow a good place to visit with historic surroundings.
