Good Pub Guide Recommended

Nooks and crannies, a thoughtful choice of drinks, friendly staff and lovely food; seats and tables in large garden

Whether you're out for a walk or a to have a seriously good meal, there's a welcome for all in this stylishly refurbished village pub. There's somewhere interesting to sit whatever the occasion, and as well as beams, the rooms have bare-brick, exposed-stone and painted walls, open fires and woodburners, horse prints and photos, big bold paintings of pigs, sheep, cows and chickens, large clocks and fresh flowers, and stubby candles on mantelpieces, in big glass jars and on the tables. Flooring ranges from carpet to flagstones, bare floorboards and brick. Furnishings are just as eclectic: long leather button-back and cushioned wall seats, armchairs, all manner of wooden or upholstered dining chairs and tables made from mahogany, pine and even driftwood. They serve a beer named for the pub plus Marstons Pedigree and Rat White Rat on handpump, 50 wines by the glass from a fine list, 30 gins and over 25 malt whiskies; background music. An appealing terrace has wooden or rush seats around tables under parasols, braziers for cooler evenings and a view down over the garden to Worthy Island Wood.
