Handsome place with an appealing, contemporary bar and dining room, real ales and all-day food; bedrooms
The good pub guide review
An excellent refreshment stop after a Thames-side walk, this former coaching inn, its elegant façade picked out with wrought-iron balconies, has a villagey feel. The airy bar has leather tub chairs around copper-topped tables, high chairs upholstered in brown and beige tartan around equally high tables in pale wood, attractive flagstones, contemporary paintwork and stools against the counter; there's also a couple of comfortably plush burgundy armchairs. The bar leads into a dining area with pale blue-painted and dark wooden cushioned dining chairs around an assortment of partly painted tables on bare boards, artwork on papered walls and a large gilt-edged mirror over an open fireplace; candles in glass jars, fresh flowers, background music and newspapers. Brakspears Bitter, Ringwood Boondoggle and Youngs Special on handpump and 15 wines by the glass. A side terrace has wood and metal tables and chairs; in summer the hanging baskets are pretty. The eight bedrooms are smart and comfortable.

Highly thought-of food from a varied menu includes sharing boards, barbecue sticky ribs, salads (goats cheese, chicken and bacon, tandoori salmon), assorted pizzas and burgers, lamb kebab with couscous and salad, smoked haddock with new potatoes, spinach, poached egg and hollandaise, a pie of the day, vegetable lasagne with garlic bread, and puddings such as seasonal crumble with custard and tiramisu with forest fruit coulis.
