The regular beers are Banks's bitter and mild on electric so don't be put off as they're at either end of the low keg T-bar plus there are two changing beers from other Marstons breweries on pull and a cider and a spare. Tucked away but a nice back street local comprising a single room but obviously were once two rooms, plain but traditional furnishing inc the Britannia tables and bench seating a good pub needs. It's a good basic pub with a knowledgable friendly landlord.

Bit less impressed on this revisit. Two ales, Ringwood Boondoggle (good form despite the bloody sparkler), an Elbow beer (which was reported as being under-par) and Thatchers Heritage cider. Not much obvious change since 2011, though a bit of TLC is needed in places and the inside seemed less clean and homely than before. Spotted an unused back room, presumably for functions. I suspect this may be my last visit unless something leftfield happens.

June 2011
A modest white-washed pub with Banks livery. This used to be a two room pub and it still retains the two entrances, a shame a large chunk of the partition has been removed. Three Marstons list ales on the go: Jennings Mild, Gingerbeard and Tizzy Wizzy which were in good nick and nice to see a mild available. Guest ale clips above the bar indicate that the selection rotates fairly regularly. Thatchers Heritage cider also available on handpump. The staff were friendly and we got chatting about the day’s crawl we were embarked on. 80’s music on the jukey made for a decent listen. There was a dart board though tables were in the way preventing casual use. A solid locals pub that’s worth doing if you’ve trekked out to the Bell. Rated 6.

The pub was quiet on our visit, until nine PG crawlers got through the doors. The bar man was happy to see us all walk in and then slightly disappointed to see we didn't stay very long, as our itinerary was pushed to make it back down the road to the Bush. The side entrance to the pub was the more attractive looking side. Once through the doors I found the interior to be bland and after a quick taste of the Boondoggle, which was in good nick, I was glad to move on.
