Have visited here on numerous occasions, and yet again we left more than delighted with our meal. We visited here on Sunday 30th August at about 6pm, no pre-booking, and no waiting for a table (which is always a worry when dropping in to a popular pub for a meal on a Sunday). There always seems to be new choices... More

Had dinner at the pub/hotel while we were staying there, the menu was extensive and promising - but the execution was slightly disappointing (there were bones in the fish, when we didn't expect them however other than that it was good.) Dessert was tasty.

I had hoped for more from this restaurant. My meal was nice but not spectacular, the service was ok but not good. My mum was not happy with her food, and the manager did come over to speak and the meal was taken off the bill. My desert was very nice with little elderflower meringues. It was such a shame...

We went as a group of three for Sunday lunch and were seated in the quiet restaurant. Service was good and the meal was excellent with generous portions. There was a choice of two roasts with all the trimmings (£12) and lots of other menu choices as well. The meal was delicious. The atmosphere was pleasant, and we felt very... More

I'm a semi regular to the Fisherman's visiting once a month at least for a few beers and a bite to eat. The staff here are always friendly and welcoming. It's nice to be greeted with a smile. They have a fantastic selection of beers so arrange to walk or get a taxi as you will never just have one.... More

Visited whilst on holiday. Was a great little pub. Happy it was dog friendly. A good seletion of specials. The food was ok if not slightly expensive for portion size. We sat in the restaurant side which the staff kindly allowed us to do. Normally we wouldn't have been allowed here due to having the dog. A nice selection of... More

If you look at our review of the Lamb you will see that we had a lucky escape when we were turned away 4 minutes after service ended. We went straight to the Fisherman's Haunt, a place we haven't eaten in for a long time, but what a joy. We were welcomed by staff eager to do all they could... More

A pleasant place. The staff were polite. The meal was nice. No draught coke which was disappointing so we were advised to buy two singles instead of the pint we wanted, which proved expensive for the one doing the driving.

Dear Paula G Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to us here in Christchurch, I'm a little puzzled as to your comments about our soft drinks range, as we always have draught Pepsi available on our bar, as well as Pepsi Max in bottles from the fridge.
