This is a lovely village pub that does wonderful food. Their beer is kept in great condition - their permanent, Hop Back Crop Circle, slipped down a treat!

Further to my previous comments:

- The Sunday roast is really very good indeed. Nice tender pink beef, cooked to a quality you rarely get in pubs.

- Being very busy seemed to be a one off, phone ahead for peak periods but otherwise they can usually find you a space.

- It also appears to be closed after lunch on a Sunday.

Recently moved 10mins down the road from this pub and have been in a few times since.

Cosy place with open fires, a small-ish bar and lounge, restaurant space and decent garden. Food is traditional pub fayre (pie, curry, roast, fish etc), but very well cooked.

Range of badger ales, all well kept and service is prompt and friendly.

Downsides: Worth phoning ahead for a table, as it does fill up on odd days of the week. Gents is outside, which is a bit old fashioned (ladies is inside), but not the end of the world. And it is closed between 15.00 and 18.00, which is just antisocial at the weekend.

Generally, good stuff.

Tottonfemale's profile and other comments put her comment in context: when she says "boring", she means no karaoke, tv screens or live music.

This pub provides excellent food at a reasonable price, is used by locals and visitors alike and serves well-kept beer. I had a very good pint of Hoppy Hare (H&W not usually my first choice, but this was great). The welcome is warm and the conversation friendly.

If you're coming into Salisbury from Southampton, it's well worth the 2 mile detour to eat or drink here.

They don't make much of it, but this pub is an important setting in Dickens' novel Martin Chuzzlewit (where it's referred to as a model English pub). It IS "old school", still very much a local. The Hall & Woodhouse beers make it nothing special, though. Can't speak about the food.
