Beer festival
Open all year

Tucked in the heart of the beautiful Meon Valley, this 17th-century coaching inn has winter fires, low beams, uneven floors and lots of nooks and crannies. In summer, enjoy a pint of Ringwood Best or Flowerpots Goodens Gold in the secluded rear garden. Home-cooked food makes good use of locally sourced ingredients in simple snacks such as a sandwiches and salads through to full meals along the lines of devilled whitebait; or creamy garlic mushrooms followed by pie of the day or spicy curry of the day. The new owners say there’ll be a beer festival in mid September.
