Our Inspector's view

This charming and long-running restaurant-with-rooms has a wonderful setting, in a 17th-century building right on the harbour in this lovely little fishing village. It’s a great place to watch the sun go down – have a drink outside in the courtyard before heading in to the bright, airy dining room. The menu delivers interesting, gently contemporary interpretations of classic dishes and flavour combinations, and tasting menus are available at both lunch and dinner. A neatly presented starter of salt-cured cod comes with black pudding, winter leeks, cod roe and honey mustard, while main course combines superb local South Downs venison with braised spelt, pumpkin in various guises, black fig, winter greens and a fathoms-deep jus. Dessert captures the astringent essence of the new season’s forced rhubarb, appearing in poached, puréed and sorbet forms alongside creamy vanilla custard parfait and pistachio cake; otherwise, go for a tasting plate of six British cheeses.

About The area

Discover Hampshire

Hampshire’s varied landscape of hills and heaths, downlands and forests, valleys and coast is without rival in southern England. Combine these varied landscapes and terrains with secluded and idyllic villages, complete with thatched and timber-framed cottages and Norman churches, elegant Georgian market towns, historic ports and cities, restored canals and ancient abbeys, forts and castles, and you have a county that is paradise for lovers of the great outdoors.

If you’re a walker, stride out across the high, rolling, chalk downland of the north Hampshire ‘highlands’ with far-reaching views, walk through steep, beech-clad ‘hangers’ close to the Sussex border. Or perhaps take a gentler stroll and meander along peaceful paths through unspoilt river valleys, etched by the sparkling trout streams of the Test, Itchen, Avon and Meon. Alternatively, wander across lonely salt marshes and beside fascinating coastal inlets or, perhaps, explore the beautiful medieval forest and heathland of the New Forest, the jewel in Hampshire’s crown.
