Lovely food, great service and dog friendly

Went here with two dogs and friends, warmly greeted, no problems with dogs in pub. Food was very good, really enjoyed the cauliflower and Saffron Soup (v large bowl) followed by exquisite New Forest Sausages and Mash. The food was great, hot and served perfectly on time. The beers were excellent if... read more

Great menu and steak cooked perfectly, which is a surprisingly rare treat. Peppercorn and Blue Cheese sauces were delicious too. Very nice pub, easy to find, main road location .

This was our first time here and won't be our last. Myself and hubby both had the sirloin steak. Mine was medium rare and my hubby medium. Both done to perfection with chunky chips and salad. Really tasty, I didn't want it to finish. Definitely worth a visit.

Just had lunch here with my family and although the food was fantastic 5 stars, the service was awful and ruined the meal. We'd booked a table and on arrival all looked promising, we were shown to our table and the menu was great. We ordered a good quality wine and placed our order. We'd asked for bread and oils,...

We visited here on holiday two years ago and loved it do returned during our holiday this year but were sadly disappointed. They had run out of one of the starters which we were not informed of before ordering, the chips are just bland oven chips, my burger was black and over cooked and we could barely see what we...

Before renovation a few years ago The Filly was never on our must go to list but since renovation............ We always visit The Filly when we are in the area. This time on a very wet Sunday lunchtime at the end of July. The pub was heaving with quite a few large groups to service, ours included. Service was good... More
