Small, low beamed roof, setup mainly for diners.

Decent menu - at the top end of pub dining prices - Cheese and Biscuits was £8 to give you an idea. Good at table waitress service.

Ringwood Bitter was OK - nothing out of the ordinary.

Popped in again the other day, the entire pub was set out for diners with the only drinking space being at the bar. Three ales (Pride, Doom Bar and Ringwood) in decent shape but if you can't drink them in civility, what's the point?

August 2009.
Revisted the other week. Similar experiences as before except that the beer wasn't as good and the girl behind the bar was friendly but clueless - I've not seen a simple order for a pint and a half of beer take on such a surreal form before. Kafka would be proud.

Only popped in for a beer so can't comment on the food, as pretty much the entire place was set up for dining with no real drinking area. The interior is quite pleasant though, imagine it would be nice on a winters evening with the real fire blazing away. Two ales on (Pride and Brakspear) both fairly good. Service was a bit of a let-down, the Kelly Osborne-a-like was pretty surly, guess she must be the landlord's daughter as it looked like she didn't really want to be there. Overall, I wouldn't bother if it's just a beer you're after.

This is a traditional pub with a restaurant area to the front and a rather nice selection on the menu. You have to believe there is a pub on the road, its very country ... and this week (28/11/08) the road was closed from one direction, so you really had to want to find the pub too.
