The Nelson was my favourite new pub of the day. For ales it's not the best, with just Ringwood Best Bitter & Forty Niner & Sharps Doom Bar on. But I was encouraged by a blackboard with an impressive real cider list. Trying to order two halves met with some confused looks from behind the bar, until the landlord appeared and accompanied me with two empty half glasses to his secret stash of cider and perry. After wiping the dust off some of the boxes and slinging a couple of halves of rather cloudy samples over his shoulder, the final cider choice became apparent - Pennard Medium & Sweet, Hecks Port Wine of Glastonbury, Dry, Sweet, Brown Apples, Kingston Black, Morgan Sweet & Perry, Blackmore Vale Medium Farmhouse, Westons Old Rosie, Twinways Roger's Dry, Bridge Farm Dry & Sweet & Isle of Purbeck Muddy Scamp. A very impressive selection which I assumed to have been left over from a previous beer/cider festival. Needless to say, I stayed for a few halves before we moved on back to the centre of Bournemouth. Nearly all my favourite pubs appear to be in Dorset. This one is up there for me. Maybe I should retire to Dorset, if I make it that far. Oh, and the pub also serves Thai food.

I like this pub...when I can get in because it does get very crowded. Don't let that put you off though as it is a pub catering for just about everyone. Real Ales, Beer festivals at bank holidays, sky sports, decent grub and a lovely garden. No wonder its popular, and the guvnor is a top guy too.

Christ! I've just seen an 'A' Board outside advertising a classic car rally. Is there room inside for this great innovation? How will the event cope with the Thai carvery afternoon tea poker night complete with Morris Dancing?

Strange little pub that seems to be having an identity crisis - walk around the L-shaped bar from the door to the dining area at the back, and the character of the place seems to change with every few paces that you take. It starts off feeling like a traditional real ale pub with the local Ringwood beers available; then it's briefly a folk music venue with a bloke playing away to himself in the corner; then it starts to feel like a town centre sports pub, with big screens showing Sky matches and one of those rogue ATM machines that charges you for making a withdrawal. Then you get to the carvery, and there's a bloke serving roast dinners from a trolley. Even in the restaurant they were serving Sunday lunches and Thai food off two different menus, and somewhere in the building they were also serving cream teas according to a blackboard outside. Weird place, could be OK if it makes its mind up about what it wants to be and who it wants to cater for. At the moment it's trying too many things and not doing any of them very well.
