Worth a visit for the Steakstones!

This was our second visit to the Snakecatcher and still just as good!

Ate here 2 nights out of 3 as the experience was so good. was also clearly good for families. lower level has pool table, board games selection and Sky Sports. Upper level good for drinks or dining.... More

Lovely food. Plenty of healthy and vegetarian options. We loved the hot rock where you cook your food yourself! The staff was friendly. They could be a bit quicker clearing the tables as the left over food was attracting a lot of wasps. There was a wasp trap on the bar, but none outside to help for customers. Would definitely...

More a pub than a restaurant but the food was varied, good and reasonably priced. Excellent real ales. Popular haunt so can get a little noisy at busy times.

Had the daily special, sea bream on a salad, fabulous. Also had the chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream. Yummmmm. This is a quality restaurant, you won't be disappointed. (None of us had the meat dish specialty they are known for so can't comment on that)

I went to this pun yesterday evening for a couple of drinks with friends. We sat outside round the back. The barmaid or Assistant Manager as we discovered her to be was rude and patronising. Having bought a second drink at last orders as soon as she rang the bell for time at the bar(at 1055pm) she came outside and... More

Yes this place gets busy and I know know why! We went on a weekday for a spot of lunch, I had the ploughmens and its we absolutely lovely. Big too! I will go again for that. Nice little bear garden out the back, polite staff and ale.

We had tried to get into the Snakecatcher previously but it was so busy we had to try somewhere else. The food is good although when we asked for bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, - the bread was less than appetising. The main courses were very, very good. Our waiter really didn't have a clue about the food... More

We loved the hot stone, it's something I haven't tried before. I had a mixed grill and my partner had steak. We both really enjoyed it. We love Brockenhurst, so will hopefully be able to visit again.
