This stunning 16th-century thatched inn, which has the unique attraction of being Ringwood’s only riverside pub, has all the trappings of a quintessential English tavern. The Fish Inn boasts exposed beams, comfortable furnishings, a doggyfriendly bar area and staff that are ready and waiting to serve the quality wines and cask ales that are on offer. Go for a pint of Wadworth’s 6X, Swordfish or Horizon or one of the seasonal varieties, or perhaps Ringwood’s Best. The range may leave you pondering your choice for quite some time, providing the perfect excuse to sit back and consider the delicious, home-cooked dishes available from the menu and specials board.
There is a particular focus on fresh food, with outstanding daily specials such as the freshly landed fi sh of the day prepared in gluten-free batter and served with chips, mushy peas, lemon and tartare sauce. Smaller portions are available for children or those with a lighter appetite, and all dietary requirements can be accommodated.
The restaurant serves traditional three-meat roasts on Sunday. Depending on the weather, al fresco dining at The Fish is a treat, allowing you to watch the River Avon flow gently by, while a roaring log fire awaits in the winter months. Either way, a warm welcome from Simon, Jude and the team is guaranteed.
