Charming pub with low beams and a river in the garden

It’s said that the name of this 15th-century, timber-framed pub comes from an Old English phrase for a meeting of three rivers, but there’s only one here – The Test, known as ‘the birthplace of modern fly fishing’. You might even spot a brown trout or two while sitting on the patio in the charming rear garden. There’s a log fire to warm the low-beamed bar, where you’ll find local ales Itchen Valley and Flowerpots. Menus feature modern European and traditional dishes, so you could start things off with beetroot-cured trout with horseradish pannacotta, smoked trout Scotch egg, beetroot purée and lemon oil; or white crab mayonnaise and brown crab pâté with avocado purée and toast. Mains might include wild mushroom risotto; pheasant and root vegetable stew with sage dumplings; or confit pork belly and braised shoulder. Finish with pannetone bread and butter pudding with salted caramel ice cream, orange curd and toasted almond brittle; or choose from the great selection of local cheeses. Suites provide excellent overnight accommodation.
