It's under a mile from the bus stop (126/128/129) on the old Bath Road to this spacious rural pub with a good-sized outside seating area. Sited by the ford across the River Loddon, walkers from Hurst can use the footbridge downstream but signs now disuade drivers from using the ford. Extensive, freshly cooked menu. Piped music free area available. Anglers will be interested in the numerous prize specimens, stuffed and mounted in glass cases.
