New Forest ponies occasionally wander into this traditional local, a distraction that only serves to enhance its friendly atmosphere. There's incumbents Fortyniner, Flack's Double Drop and Aspall cider on tap. The menu showcases a multitude of items – doorstep sandwiches, snacks, chargrills, toasted paninis, vegetarian and chef’s choices. In there somewhere are smoked haddock kedgeree with poached egg; pork cutlet with ratatouille and mash; herb crusted salmon fillet on chorizo and pea risotto; and leek and gruyère tart. The beer festival is in July.
