One of the better pubs in the town and its claim to fame is that it survived the great fire of 1762. Traditional interior, spacious attractive beer garden and some interesting characters present. I tried a pint of Holy Grail (didn't realise it was from Black Sheep) and the other choices were Exmoor Ale and Fox, St Austell Proper Job and Ringwood Fortyniner. No local ales lose it a mark which is then regained by there being 4 real ciders.

Nice pub with a good selection of ales.
Gem, Hooky, Atlantic, Proper Job and Buttcombe Bitter.
Seems like they change the range regularly.
I also noticed four ciders at the back of the bar.
Very good food - although we did have to wait nearly an hour for it to arrive.

The usual suspects were to be found on the pumps due to this being owned by a pubco, but the ones tried were all in very good condition - the Exmoor Hound Dog in particular on this occasion. There were also four ciders on too. Good to see that it has kept it's old pubby charm unlike other nearby hostelries (The Quay being a good example of what I mean). The food was pretty good as well.

Super little pub and well worth ther brisk walk from the station. It retains its genuine "olde-worlde" atmosphere with 2 rooms some corridor seating and a dining are at the back. Lovely feel to the place and very friendly. We just missed out on the Betty Stoggs Bitter so settled for the Ringwood Best and were told that their beer range is slightly limited by the Pubco which owns the place but the beer was in good nick and the banter very enjoyable. (It is such a shame that these pubcos don't allow better local choices for their licensees - Adnams from Suffolk and Shepherd Neame from Kent plus Youngs Special from Bedford were on tap whilst local Dorset brews were absent!) Still ,don't let this put you off - this is a highyl recommonded little boozer!
