Nice, small pub in this commercial suburb of Bournemouth. But this is a Marstons pub. So the range is limited to their own beers and breweries they have swallowed up. The selection was Ringwood Best, Forty Niner & Boon Doggle, Banks's Bitter & Marstons Old Empire. There is a nice atmosphere in here, with no music, TVs, fruit machines or any other distractions - just simple conversation.

Have to say that our Ringwood best was fine and the pub OK - not much else in the area so you "pays your money and you takes your choice" as they say!!

Average beer at overinflated prices and the whole pub smelt of piss. Sadly, not going back in a hurry.

Another visit recently.. you can't fault the atmosphere in this place, though for a Saturday night it was quite empty.

Sadly, the beer quality is worse than ever with Old Thumper down from 5.6% to 5.1% and tasting terrible. I don't believe this is the fault of the staff at the pub - you can't keep a beer badly to make it taste like that. Ringwood beer is simply bad, cheaply made beer these days.

I noticed the rather cynical new pump clips trying to promote the brewery as a craft-brewer. Poppycock!

Ah, vindicated. I knew you'd agree with me!
