Went to The Filly for my birthday. Had a lovely meal. The Steak and Ale pie I had was gorgeous. Not served with the usual peas!! Made a great change. The burgers that two members of my family had were great too. The fourth meal was mushroom pasta, again lovely. The waitress had heard it was my birthday so my... More

Good ales, good food and top service. Not just a pub! Great views around the Filly, if you go during the day too.

See separate report on the Filly Inn, included in review of a two night stay, had we known the food was so good we would have booked for both nights instead of going further afield for our second!

Pub is central for quite a few walks around the new forest area. Food is great and plenty. Really recommend it to people who are on a walk or cycle and want to stop for a bite to eat or a nice pint. The only negative I found is that the actual pub area is not very well lit and... More

The menu offers a good range of choice and the food arrived quickly, well cooked and flavoursome. They do a mean chocolate fudge cake! A lovely new forest pub - good atmosphere, good food and...

We came across the Filly by accident and decided to stop as it looked good from the outside We were not disappointed. The food was excellent the service good and the local "Filly" ale very "moreish" Definitely the best local around. So good we went there twice in three days Reccomended

We spent a very enjoyable afternoon sitting in the beer garden, chatting to the locals. When we came to order food, the service was extremely prompt. The garlic mushrooms on toast were delicious and perfect size for a starter. The roast was fine...no complaints but you can't beat home cooking. The staff were friendly and we were made to feel...
