The good pub guide review

Its location near Swanwick Marina on the peaceful River Hamble means this place is popular with seafarers; in warm weather there are plenty of seats under large parasols, though no water views. A recent refurbishment has removed the conservatory and extended the dining area. The cosy bar has leather sofas by an open fire, church candles and fresh flowers, stools lining the bleached wooden bar counter and slate flooring and bare boards. Ringwood Fortyniner and a guest from the likes of Ascot and Bowmans on handpump and good wines by the glass; background music. The dining area has painted wall seats with colourful cushions, wall banquettes, cushioned wooden chairs around dark tables, woodstrip walls and yachting and lighthouse photographs. The 23 bedrooms are attractively decorated, smart and comfortable.

The good pub guide food review

Well thought-of food includes lunchtime sandwiches, prawn and avocado cocktail, buffalo chicken wings, a range of stone-baked pizzas, 'buddha bowl' with brown rice, sesame, kale, avocado, carrot pickle, beetroot and roasted cauliflower, burgers (short rib, beef, chicken, vegan) and fries, various steaks (including a cauliflower version) with chips and a choice of sauce, and puddings such as dark chocolate brownie with sauce and ice cream and a daily fruit crumble.
