Mother's Day Lunch, very tasty.

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... read 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

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

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
