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.

Stayed at this quaint inn deep in the heart of the New Forest. Rooms were sweet and clean and to rise to the morning sun and ponies grazing randomly outside -can it get any better? Yes it can! Breakfast in the pub was sublime, the chef was so helpful and bent over backwards to accommodate, evening meals were equally excellent... More

10 of us came for dinner, all meals cooked to perfection. I went for the roasted chicken breast with mushroom and asparagus sauce. It was divine! My father bangers and mash looked so good I had to have a bite of that too. It was delicious! We all enjoyed our meal and decided to go for dessert where we was... More

Each visit the food has been excellent. As our group has dogs we... More

Just returned from a stay here, quaint village pub with 4 rooms. Great area location for exploring the New Forest Area,. Reason for my immediate review on return was to make people aware of something that the pub should really make you aware of before booking if you are taking your dog/s with you. We took our elderly dog with... More
