The friendly welcome and comfy bed would encourage me to go back. We had 4 lovely days, the meals were really nice, breakfast was excellent. I would highly recommend this Inn and if you have dogs its not a problem, they are very dog friendly.

Visited here on the 15/4/15, my fiancé and I were warmly greeted by the staff. Service was good and prompt. I had the homemade pie and my fiancé had the pork burritos. We shared the chocolate marquise pudding, followed by coffee. All of the food was excellent, with a good selection of dishes on the menu to choose from. Nice... More

We went here for lunch the other day , first visit but definitely not the last! The pub is very nice inside , feels like a proper pub not a big chain, at the same time it's clean and modern. The service was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and all of our food and drink was brought out quickly... More

A party of us descended on the Fisherman's Haunt the day after a wedding, and overall they did themselves proud. The food was delicious, with a cracking specials board , the booze was great, and the service was superb. The kitchen and the restaurant staff did an incredible job of catering for our presumably unexpected large party, and it was... More

The soup was very flavorsome, although could have been a lot hotter. When our main courses came we were rather surprised that the portions were so small. Husband had beef only one small slice, though extremely tasty. The same could be said for all the meats. One small bowl of veg had to do the three of us, but again... More

My partner and I decided to have a last minute bite to eat out on a Monday night and chose the Fishermans Haunt, having eaten there before and had morning coffee on a previous occasion. It was fairly quiet and the menu choice was limited to the menu only rather than having a 'Special's Board: - no doubt because it... More

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.

Always consistent good food, routine pub offer but done well and some commitment to local suppliers for meat and eggs. Fullers beers and some they nicked from Gayles when they shut the brewery are on hand pump. ESB usually in great nick. Comfortable seating, I particularly like the upper left lounge. Always nice staff, although they push food hard they... More
