Modern British cooking in the heart of the New Forest

The red-brick former coaching inn stands in landscaped grounds within open heathland on the edge of the village of the same name. Its traditionally styled dining room with seating upholstered in spring green makes a soothing setting for gently refined modern British cooking of distinctive flair. An assured opener comes in the form of chicory tart with walnut and pear salad and deep-fried blue cheese, and may be followed by buttery-sauced seared salmon with crushed new potatoes, capers and kale, or venison in chocolate with figs and turnips. Sound execution characterises a classic crème brûlée, served with blackberry jam and a doughnut finger.
