Never disappointed!!

This was our third visit in 6 months and the food, drink and service were great. There were 6 of us and the varied menu met all our culinary desires. The beer selection was great as was the wine. The bar and waitress service was excellent. Next time we visit the New Forest we will eat here again.

We met up here with friends after staying overnight and decided to have our lunch here. The restaurant area has a large number of tables and although we had't prebooked they happily gave us a table. The Sunday roast choice was good and we selected the Roast Lamb and Roast Beef which was delicious. We did have to wait quite... More

My husband and I popped in for a meal as a rare midweek treat. I had the belly pork and it was beautiful!! My husband had sirloin steak and was equally pleased. The waitress was lovely and so polite.

Been here a few times over the past few months the food especially has improved, use of local produce, cooked to high standard and good value. Deserts are always top quality and all homemade, presentation of everything is always at the highest standard. Specials boards are always special, chef cares a lot. We always receive the warmest of welcomes, and... More

We came here for a late Sunday lunch following one of our usual Sunday walks. We had a warm welcome and were sat at our table (table service), it's a pub but it's trying to be a restaurant. Hubby chose a roast (pork) and as I'm watching my weight I chose the smoked haddock fillet. Considering the cost (£10.95) I... More

We eat here often, the menu and specials are varied and range from ham and eggs (local eggs) to fairly exotic fish and game dishes on the specials menu, it is not the cheapest place to eat but certainly not the dearest, the food is certainly worth it.
