What a great place this is... Came here first when I was but a lad too young to sample the many local ales on offer. Returning all those years later, I was not disappointed by the excellent choice of ales, friendly staff, comfortable rooms and lovely pub grub (the steak & ale pie was especially good). The staff are always... More

The staff are extremely helpful & friendly and were happy for us to move from our booked table to one in a quieter location away from a large family party with small children.The table staff were attentive and knew the menu well, pointing out the day's special dishes. The starters are fairly substantial (but delicious!), so if you have a... More

We stayed in room two. Nice twin room, we had it made into a double. The room was clean and tidy. The bathroom wall paper could do being replaced. You get shampoo and soap and clean towels. The shower is power shower but has low pressure behind it. A lovely view into the garden. Room is cleaned very day. Bed... More

we visited the New Forest Inn On Sunday 16th August for Sunday lunch. We had been allocated a very nice table and to add to our pleasure found that two beautiful dogs were next to us. We all ordered something different and all five of us were more than happy with the delicious well cooked hot food. The menu gives... More

We found this place last year and said we must come back, and it didn't disappoint again, hubby had the pie and it was huge, daughter had a burger as usual which came with a lovely dressed salad, I had the mackerel off the specials which was a bit disappointing as the roast veg weren't very roasted, but it was...

A Top New Forest pub that is hard to beat. The inside is very cosy with fires in the winter and there is a lovely tiered garden if the sun shines. There is an extensive menu with choices to suit all appetites, the local fish being particularly good, and a good choice for veggies. The beer is well kept with... More

Visited after seeing good reviews. It was a damp evening so we sat inside. The staff were very friendly. We had to wait a while for the food but don't mind if everything is fresh. I had the meat pie and it was the best pie I have ever had. Stuffed full of meat, no grissly bits and the pastry... More

We stopped off on our way to our hotel for some lunch. Its a nice old pub with a nice secluded sunny beer garden. The lady behind the bar was very pleasant and friendly. The food is served all day and I must say it was excellent, the chicken I had was superb! Will definitely visit again.

We happened upon this pretty pub and found the staff very welcoming and friendly, best surprise was the food though....top drawer!! Really special cheese croquet with pear and walnut tarte tatin. It really was excellent. Would recommend eating here.
