An old coaching inn, opposite Neverspoons. You pay your money, you take your chance. A Marstons house and the sunbeam was better than I could have hoped for.

No change from the review below, expect that the right hand room across the courtyard has had a makeover. Four ales on our visit; Ringwood Porter (very good nick), Razorback, Revisionist Cherry and Old Wallop (from White Hart brewery so presumably a Marstons rebadge). Also 5 Sandford ciders. A pub that I don’t think quite gets the recognition it deserves. I would priortiize this one over a number of others nearby.

A desperation stop because of the tumultuous rain and sometimes things just work out nicely. This one is an old coaching inn located in two different buildings, separated by what was presumably the passageway to the stables. The main bar room is to the left, which has a lovely wood-centric interior over two (or was it three?) different levels, decked out with lots of fishing ephemera. Busy and quite a good level of hubbub, with many people eating; in fact there was only one spare table, not bad going for a miserable Sunday evening. Four Marstons stable ales, my Snecklifter was quite drinkable. Being thorough, I reluctantly decamped across the courtyard (via the classical style statue) to the second building, which was more open-plan and had a gentleman’s club feel, with an old book library and some brewerania. I did note a sign in the cobbled passageway advertising bar billiards but I failed to locate the table. Likewise the ‘secret garden’, though given the inclement weather I wasn’t really motivated to look that hard. WiFi available. All-in-all, a worthwhile visit. Rated 8

Blackthorn _ left this review about The White Hart Inn

A good sized pub/hotel on the outskirts of the town centre down towards the quay, it consists of two separate bars separated by an alleyway which was itself quite attractive and included a statue and some seating. The right hand half appeared cosy enough but looked as though it may have been more the hotel part, so we opted for the left hand side. At the back was a “secret garden” which in reality was more of a courtyard and not at all secret, but it looked pleasant enough and was covered on one side with a large awning.

This is a large bar split over a couple of different levels, with flagstones on the upper part and sanded wood boards on the lower. It has quite a cosy ambience with black beams on the ceiling and a few copper pots and pans hanging up. There is quite a bit of exposed stone walling and elsewhere the paintwork is of a mustard hue and there are also lots of panelled mirrors around making the pub appear bigger than it actually is. Had I not known any different, I would have thought I was in a pub called The Ship due to the number of nautical artefacts on display such as a life buoy, fishing nets, flags, ship pictures and the obligatory knot display.

Food wise, the menu looked to be a mass produced, laminated affair and offered pub grub staples such as Beef & Ale Pie, Lasagne and Chicken Tikka Masala as well as a number of burgers, salads and flame grills. Main courses were mostly priced somewhere around the £8 mark, although as we didn’t eat I can’t comment on the quality.

Beers on tap were Ringwood Best, Showman’s Tipple, Old Wallop from the White Hart Brewery (whether this is their own I’m not sure) and Jenning’s Cocky Bird. Ciders were Strongbow and Thatcher’s Heritage.
