How to find us
We're about a 5-minute walk from Petersfield Station.
PlanetThe pub is over 400 years old and as a Grade II listing building retains many of its original features; such as the original oak beams taken from the ship it is named after, as well as open fires and inglenook fireplace.
I am extremely passionate about sourcing fresh local produce; our menu is seasonal which helps to keep it as environmentally aware as possible.
Free-range hens from a farm in Froxfield lay our eggs and our ice cream is from Meddle Farm. Our vegetables are sourced from the Bryant Bros, a family owned business, which grow their produce in Golden Ball Farm in Petersfield. They supply us as well as our local community through their market stall in Petersfield market.
The firewood that fuels our two original fireplaces is from sustainable woodland in Froxfield.
Where affordable we try to recycle.
We have an abundance of wildlife in the area, despite not having a garden; we do have hanging baskets that can update with the seasons and attract a variety of birds including robins, thrushes and swallows. Tilmore Brook is located just a short distance away; due to being on a natural waterway, we can get a range of water faying creatures such as herons, toads and dragon flies too.
PeopleAs an inn we are massively involved and proud of our involvement in our local community of Petersfield, through events and charity work.
We proudly have our very own rugby team who won our local cup in 2012. In addition to that, we sponsor two theatre groups, Winton House and Petersfield Theatre Group. Both of these put on regular productions throughout the year, which can be seen at Petersfield Festival Hall.
The local ladies choir has been invited in for drinks, and can be spotted doing a range of concerts around the town.
In 2012 we held a music week at the inn for the charity Artscape, who are an arts based service for adults in recovery from long-term mental distress and addiction.
Along with my bar staff, I did a charity skydive for the Rowan’s Hospice who aim to improve the lives of people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.
