Smashing village pub with no pretensions, a good choice of local beers and highly regarded food

A favourite with many of our readers (and with us as well) this has genuine, unspoilt character and attracts a fine mix of customers. If you like your pubs neat and tidy, perhaps you might feel this is a little worn about the edges but that's exactly why so many people love it. The low-beamed interconnecting rooms have all sorts of tables of differing sizes with high-winged wall settles, carved pews, chapel and carver chairs, and lots of pictures of local scenes and from imperial days. The main front windows are said to be made from the stern of a ship, and there's a log and coal fire in a huge fireplace. The snug is noteworthy for its fantastic collection of photographs and prints celebrating the local aviation history of Boscombe Down, alongside archive photographs of Stonehenge festivals of the 1970s and '80s. At the back is a homely, red-painted dining room. Four real ales on handpump come from breweries such as Butcombe, Fullers, Hop Back, Itchen Valley, Palmers, Plain, Ramsbury, Stonehenge and Triple fff and they also keep over 30 malt whiskies, ten wines by the glass and farm cider; board games. There are seats on the small front terrace with more on grass and in the back garden. The road leading to the pub goes through a ford, and it may be best to use an alternative route in winter when the water can be quite deep. There's an all-weather cricket pitch on the village green.
