About the Pub

A traditional Victorian two bar pub restored by owners Malc and Hannah Evans. Its name derives from being opposite where the railway station used to be. The railway was once the main line west from Southampton but was gradually by-passed from 1885 and eventually succumbed to the Beeching cuts in 1964. The pub itself has a public bar on the right, with d├ęcor featuring old photographs of the railway, dartboard (the pub has 2 teams) and small snug area, leading to the garden, with books and traditional pub games and board games. The lounge bar offers further seating with old pews and chairs, further old photographs, maps and posters. The pub is popular with the friendly locals, families and local businesses, and boasts Ringwood's only enclosed beer garden featuring ample seating, smoking area, barbecue and Thomas the Tank Engine climbing frame (previously from the local infants school). 4 changing real ales are offered, with at least one local beer (usually Ringwood Best). Food is offered at all times (except Mondays) and is quality burgers during the week and a roast on Sundays. Level access available via rear door.

Historic Interest

The hotel was built to serve Ringwood station on the original Southampton-Weymouth LSWR main line, and later the Somerset and Dorset lines - which went from Brockenhurst to Templecombe and Bath. Station and lines closed in the 1960's.
