This really is a gem. I've only been in 3 times in two years but the quality of the beer is excellent and the place itself always looks like it has had an army of cleaners in.

I'm always a bit wary of estate pubs. But this one is probably the best one I've been in. Or at least, it's the best I remember being in! It seems to have been modernised and changed with the times, unlike many others of its kind and caters for families, diners and also offers a good drinks range. Beers on last night were Adnams Southwold IPA, Okells Red, Batemans Hooker, Sharps Doom Bar, Oakleaf Hole Hearted & Stonehenge Heal Stone. Westons Old Rosie cider was also available. The barmaid was kitted out in a rather fetching St Patrick's Day outfit and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. This is the sort of pub that I suspect most people would pass by without giving it a second glance (and probably only if they were lost). But I think that if you are passing by, lost or simply in the area, you should make an effort to give it a try.

To say this is in Stubbington is pushing the outside of the envelope as it's situated near the Solent in Hillhead. The exterior reminds you of a large Council house and harks back to when it was a Watney's pub and opened in 1962. The interior is a little bland and recently re-decorated, but it's made up for by the fantastic selection of real ales cared for by the ultra knowledgeable Ian and Jenny Readman (look out for his tie). There's almost two different clientel. One lot is made up of the 'locals' and the others who visit for the great food. The Crofton is famous not just for its well kept cellar of real ales but also for its home cooking and on my latest visit the food area was packed. In the cold winter months there is a welcoming fire in the public bar area where they have a telly. An elegant function room with skittles alley is available for hire at a very competitive price, offering a skittles menu plus buffet and 3 course menu options! Quiz night is the first Tuesday of each month. You can't fault the beer and I was on the 'Mid-Summer' ale, which at 2.95 in the this part of the world is good value. Too my mind, this is the best pub in the area and worth a visit if only to see the bar staffs neck ware.
