Cosy pub and good food.

Really tasty food and generous portions. Friendly service and good value. Massive amount of choice on the menu which is often concerning that not everything is fresh but both our dishes were really tasty

Called in on our way back from Lymington, lovely food, huge portions and great quality. Friendly staff, good prices and great selection available from the menu and large range of beers and largers.

The staff were very helpful and the food was lovely. It was all freshly cooked and huge portions.. definitely the best burger I've ever had in a pub! The atmosphere was very relaxed and it was lovely to just sit by the fire and relax. Very enjoyable visit.

A friendly pub with reasonable food. The menu is varied and the food reliable. It gets quite busy in the evenings. It's nothing special but if you want a pleasant pub with reasonably decent food in the village Brockenhurst there really isn't anywhere else to go.

Our main courses were delicious, the chips were chunky, crispy on the outside & beautifully fluffy inside. I loved the butterfly chicken with pesto & goats cheese.

Happy staff and an unusual menu combine to make this a great place. The hot stones are the standout dinner to try - especially if, like me, you like sea-food freshly cooked. The real ales are well-kept too.

This pub was booked by my family and every person at the table was not disappointed! Amazing food cooked to perfection, service was brilliant which considering this was a larger table was top notch! This pub is the first I have been to with heated stones to cook your food on - fun whilst eating. Every inner kids dream! Cannot... More

We were rather mucky and the dogs muddy following a long New Forest walk but the barmaid made us feel very welcome. The food was just right, we shared a seafood platter - hit the spot. Food and drinks very reasonably priced. The log burner made it harder to get up and leave. Really lovely pub would recommend.

Poor value for money. The Sunday roast was small with very portion of veg three roasties and stringy roast beef. Very poor value for money at £ 13.99. We wont be back.
