Hall and Woodhouse [Badger] Fursty Ferret, Tanglefoot
The pub was formerly owned by Friary Meux, but taken over by Badger in 1998 and is set in a small hamlet in a grassy valley. The accent is on good food, particularly fish dishes, although it is possible to simply have a drink which is done via table service. Running along the front of the pub is a long and narrow bar which contains a double-sided fireplace, and is cosy in winter. The wide road outside marks the place where London Transport used to turn round the 412 bus round many years ago. The bus was kept on a farm in Holmbury St Mary overnight. The garden on the steep hillside is an excellent spot to eat and drink in the sun. Food is served 12-2:30 and 6:30-9 Monday and Tuesday, 12-2:30 and 6:30-9:30 Wednesday to Friday, 12-9 Saturday and 12-3 Sunday. The pub is very mountain bike friendly.
