Stumbled across this pub, it's got a lovely pub garden for when the weathers good & friendly staff. Food is really good and portions are nice & big (neither of us could eat dessert!) you could order steak & other meat to cook yourself at your table, brilliant if you want to control how it's cooked.

Popped in here for an evening meal instead of our hotel and were very glad we did. Good pleasant service and delicious food from the light menu.

Great local atmosphere, good range of beer and wines, friendly pub service - and probably the best burger I've ever eaten! Incredible to find this in a 'regular' pub - you can be sure we will be going back!

Have been here on previous camping trips just for a drink and the food always looks good. Decided to go for dinner tonight and we were not disappointed. Service was prompt and the food was delicious. We ate from the classic menu and it was good. Lots of choice. Would highly recommend

Our second visit to the Snakecatcher and we enjoyed it as much as the first time. The pub was very quiet when we visited on a Tuesday evening. We ordered food which was served promptly and was delicious.

Great place to stop whilst visiting The New Forest . Food is freshly cooked . We had the Roast beef dinner and could not fault one item on the plkate . Ideally located in the centre of town with a pub garden where can you can watch the world go by . Free parking but does tend to get full... More

Cooked my own steak on a hot rock, very nice. Sadly we sat near to an extremely noisy family party which caused us to leave earlier than we would have liked. Otherwise food was good. Service good.

I would just like to say the service by the young lad with brown hair on Saturday night was excellent. He recommended meals, was really friendly to our wee dog even though she was being moody, shared the pate to start with, nice toast could have been harder as pate was hard so it crumbled, that's my only minor recommendation....

Good beer, good atmosphere and great food. If you want great food but not the theatre of a restaurant then this is a great spot.
