Find this 16th-century pub next to the churchyard, village shop and some wonky old cottages in a small village on the outskirts of Salisbury. The bedrooms are in an annexe made of old brick, and some open out onto a little private courtyard.
Breakfast is served in the conservatory, and could include homemade granola, apricots poached in Earl Grey tea, avocado with smoked trout, local sausages, thick bacon. Choose a book and settle in the bay window of the pub next to a roaring fire or have a drink in the garden while you gaze at fields and horses.
The bar menu features pub classics, and the superb main restaurant, Betony, has two AA Rosettes and Michelin-star quality fare – best showcased by the six-course surprise tasting menu. Romsey and the cathedral city of Salisbury are eight miles away, and Stonehenge is half an hour’s drive. You’re near the New Forest too.
