Stopped off for lunch on our South Downs walk. Very warm welcome from all the staff, excellent fish & chips and a couple of superb Ringwood ales. Bar staff happy to bring the beers to the table. Reluctantly left for the next 10 mile stint.

Wonderful ambience and a great garden. Good selection of local and regular beers. The menu looks great but sadly didn’t have time to eat, but judging the amount of people having lunch it must be good! Also is dog friendly!

Very friendly welcome, we popped in for lunch last minute and glad we did. So much choice, including for GF (they loved the duck). The fish finger bap was delicious, proper fish and very crispy crumb. The ploughman’s was enormous. Will definitely go there again...More
