It took us over an hour until we were served our food, and a bottle of wine arrived without glasses, stating we had not ordered glasses. Also... More

Just popped n for a drink on our way past, have fond memories of the place too. Was disappointed with a flat feeling in the bar, the batman was not over friendly, no smile or hello. And the we were shocked with the bar prices.... £4.75 for a fruit cider.... Don't think we will be popping in again anytime soon... More

To be honest we had tried to eat elsewhere but our first choice was extremely completely rammed, so we popped into the Fishermans Haunt Hotel who were also busy but happy to fit us in also. What a joy, staff were extremely pleasant, the restaurant is warm and inviting and the menu varied. The three of us all chose a... More

3 of us have eaten here over the last three months. We found the attitude of the staff to be rather off-hand both on the telephone and in person. However the food is great providing you don't want plain 'pub grub'. Despite being told by the staff that the winter menu would be starting in November and would have an... More

Dear Dawn A Thank you very much for taking the time to share your review on Tripadvisor.

Very efficient checking in. Lovely room, as always. Bed really comfortable and plenty of space in the room. Good welcome pack, large walk in shower which suited us. Breakfast was excellent and appeared to be cooked to order. Didn't eat dinner in the dining room so can't comment on that. Handy parking in front of the room. The staff couldn't... More

Very nice hotel/pub but a bit restricted on the drinks they serve. The food was very good and more than you needed for breakfast so great choice. The room was basic but clean and comfortable and the bed was to die for. Good location for New Forest exploring.
