The lyndhurst appearance from the outside and it's location is not the most appealing combination and you would probably pass the place and think its a locals boozer. How wrong can you be! This pub which is run by a friendly land lord and land lady serves excellent food and an array of real ales. This is a proper pub... More

My wife, baby and I came across this pub and had a great experience. From the attentive staff and great customer service through to a lovely meal (we went for the curry) and good selection of beers. It seems like the type of pub you could while away a few hours reading the paper or equally have a good drink... More

So lucky to find a nice old pub with really great food and a nice selection of local and well known beers and ciders.

The new owners are just what this pub needs - some love and attention, some great service and atmosphere and the best pies ever. it does have music but not blasting away so loud you can't have a conversation and there are some colouful regulars in there too.

I must say that I was not impressed with the new Lyndhurst - I was even slightly disappointed: average burgers (even after such a long wait) with mediocre fries, average music and average atmosphere. Nothing unique or different about it - just ordinary. I'm afraid I'm not getting back there any time soon...

Hi there You're right, we fumbled the ball on Saturday pretty much across the board. We were a man down in the kitchen (hence the delay) and have to admit that we trialled a new supplier for our burgers which simply weren't up to our usual standard so please accept our apologies. We have also tweaked our music policy too... More

I've been a regular to The Lyndy for 20 years and seen it's ups and downs but the new landlord and friendly team see the pub in better shape than ever. Their attension to detail is second to none to make your visit outstanding, makes you feel sad for the rest. In a declining era for local pubs their winning... More

Met some friends here for a drink and food, was pleasantly surprised. The starter was great and the mains were fantastic. The portions were good too. All in all a great experience. Would visit again.
