Good Pub Guide Recommended

Ancient place with contemporary design, several eating and drinking areas, a bustling atmosphere, rewarding food and drink, and courtyard seats; bedrooms

Although this inn first opened its doors in 1311 and is full of history ? it's quite a surprise inside. They've kept the ancient beams and walls and added contemporary artwork and touches of glass, steel, slate and leather throughout. The bar is bustling and convivial with a good mix and age range of customers sitting on wall banquettes or at high tables and chairs dotted around the room; the brick walls are painted white and there's a strip of blue neon lighting at ground level. They have a beer named for them (from Milk Street), Ringwood Boondoggle or Fortyniner and a guest from a brewery such as Blindmans or Box Steam on handpump, good wines by the glass and a large cocktail list. Stairs lead up to the restaurant with its rather dramatic glass-enclosed mezzanine cube, there are mustard yellow and pale green leather chairs around a mix of tables on big floorboards, high rafters lined with electric candles and a large carved angel on a plinth; background music. A long slate-floored passageway links this main part to a two-roomed snug area that has large leather sofas and armchairs and an open fire, and a small rather cosy dining room. The central courtyard has colourful tables and chairs and a mediterranean feel.
