ROCKBOURNE, Fordingbridge, SP6 3NL
A spectral presence is occasionally abroad here; hardly surprising that the spirit of a former landlord is loathe to leave such an idyllic thatched pub at the fringe of the New Forest. For mortal visitors it's the lure of the local beers, the discovery of top-notch home cooking and the bright, shrubby cottage garden that will detain them. In chillier weather they can settle inside to be warmed by huge log fires. A tasty lunchtime snack might be a crayfish tail sandwich with avocado and salad; or a Welsh rarebit; but for something more substantial choose homity pie and onion gravy; confit rare breed pork belly, spring onion mash, black pudding and cider jus; or oven roasted Dorset lamb rump, confit smoked garlic and redcurrant jus.
