Ringwood Road, BRANSGORE, BH23 8JH
This chocolate box 17th-century inn is adorned with a riot of flowers in the spring and summer. It's set in a south-facing garden with over 2,500 square metres of lawn surrounded by fields, trees and grazing ponies. The excellent food and drink is served in all of the five public areas. The comfortable lounge bar warmed by log fire stocks an admirable range of cask-conditioned real ales and ciders, with mulled wine and cider in winter; an oak-beamed snug, similarly warmed, has biscuits and water for the dog; a large terrace with a water feature suits summer alfresco dining; and the 60-seat restaurant serves AA Rosette-quality dishes. Favourites such as fish and chips and burger with cheese and bacon sit alongside menu specials like sea bass with fricasée of squid, olives and tomato; or lentil and bean fajitas. A cider festival is held during the summer holidays, followed by a beer festival at the end of September. The pub also has a civil ceremony licence so you could even get married at one of the festivals.
