Mid-range country pub that was saved from closure a few years ago and has taken on a new lease of life under the current licensee. Internally it has had a makeover but it retains a cosy charm, even if the walls are a bit whitewashed for my liking. Enter to a disconcerting slant which I assume is the internal staircase jutting in. To the right of this is a small discrete area. To the left is the main bar area with four pumps at the far right of the bar, containing on this occasion Wells Bombardier, Sharps Doom Bar, Goffs Lancer and Bettridges Jenny Wren (good nick) and Goddards Scrum (excellent shape). There is a dartboard located here as well as a wood burning stove. Carpeted throughout. Screens were showing football and cricket at a sensible volume. Gravel side beer garden with a telephone box as well. Got chatting to the landlord, a good egg and a genuine pubman. As mentioned below there’s no regular hot food at the pub but there are drive-up vans and food deliveries during the week – quite novel. Perhaps overall it's a just a little bit on plain side to be a modern classic but the warmth, cosiness and beer choice make it a worthwhile seek-out. 8.5

A great little community pub tucked away deep in the Hampshire countryside, recently and tastefuly renovated. I turned up 10 minutes after opening time and was first punter through the door so had time for a good chat with the friendly and enthusiastic landlord.The interior of the pub is traditional but light and fresh in feel, four pumps on the bar and the policy is two nationals and two from localish brewerys,the choice on the day was Wells Bombardier Glorious English, Sharps Point Break, triple fff Moondance and Goddards Ale Of Wight which was top notch. There is Sky Sports advertised which I felt was slightly at odds with the general nature of the pub,but this is the 21st century and wasn't in your face.there is no food from the pub itself but has pop up food as the landlord describes it, one evening a fish and chip van parks up, on another night, a pizza van and so on.All in all I was very impressed with this pub and would love to call in again.
A word of warning, the pub is closed Mondays and open only evenings during the rest of the week days.
