We ate here twice while staying at Cottage Lodge which is just down the road. I had the ham, egg & chips and while the ham may have been out of a packet it was perfectly acceptable, the local eggs and the chips were very good. My wife had the scampi - not much you can say about that, is... More

We went for lunch and they were very quiet. There was a snack menu and some specials but they didn't look that exciting. We had sandwiches and burgers. The sandwiches were on good bread with generous fillings. The beef in the sandwich was well cooked and cut nicely. The burgers came with huge chips that the children enjoyed.

Superb steak, great service, highly recommended. We didn't quite know what to expect and declined the opportunity to 'cook our own steak'. Just seemed like too much hard work. However, the dinner we ordered (steak with Diane), was outstanding and grilled exactly as ordered.

loved the hot stone concept of cooking our own. The veggie option was great and the chips were phenomenal!

Fast friendly service and good food. Allowed our dog to join us and made sure our 1 year was looked after.

We had looked forward to our meal at the Snakecatcher, having heard great things. But the service was poor - we waited almost an hour for 2 cheeseburgers and a starter dish. To be told that this was because they were busy did not go down well, as the people on the next table were served before us, even though... More

We found Brockenhurst and were hungry. The Forresters car park was small and full so we came here and glad we did. The 4 of us had the Snakecatcher Burger, Scampi, stone cooked Sirloin and a stone cooked Mixed Grill. All meals were good but the stone cooked meats, chips and service just excellent. The beers (real ales) were so... More

Doesnt really work as a pub or an eaterie. It needs to decide and concentrate on one. Our food was pretty awful. Not much to recommend really

If you're in Brockenhurst and fancy a hearty bit of pub grub, this is your best bet. The food is very tasty and there's a good selection available. We had the venison pie and venison sausages and mash which were both delicious and hit the spot! The vegetables generally needed to be cooked slightly longer (steamed veg but also the... More
