The King Rufus

Come and enjoy the lovely atmosphere in our newly refurbished pub in the delightful village of Eling, close to Southampton.

The new owners, Ray and Philippa Goold, a jazz musician and an artist, have a flair for colour and creativity – so enjoy a pint of excellent real ale, look at the paintings, and listen to live music, especially on Saturday nights.

Now it is reopened and easy to reach, especially with the new cycle path from Marchwood.

A musical, artistic venue, with a pretty garden and covered patio, with outdoor table tennis and free Wifi, selling Shepherd Neame Real Ale and good wines, as well as teas, coffee and cake.

Seasonal light food available with speciality wood fired pizzas on Friday nights.
