It's not often I write a totally negative review and usually I will try to go somewhere more than once before I write a bad review but I'm never going back here! The food was bad! Really bad! Luke warm reheated pork that had no taste cold orange sludge under the scallops that ruined the dish and when I complained... More

We ate here on a Saturday night in December, the atmosphere was buzzing, it was busy but the staff were very calm and still friendly and for the most part attentive. We went for the Special Steak Hotplates which to be honest, although are fun, are a bit of a novelty. I don't feel like we got the best out... More

Adrian from Hollycroft B&B, where we stayed, recommended Snakecatcher to us and we were not disappointed. It is a lovely pub, very open and friendly, and offers food that is different from regular pub food. On our first visit we ordered the chicken burger and the snakecatcher burger which were very good, especially the latter. The chips served at this... More

Super choice of main courses. The cook your own meals are a nice option and we tried the lamb, the sirloin and the mixed grill over the course of two visits in a week. Our second visit was spoilt slightly by a very long wait. The table next to us had ordered just two starters and we'd ordered 2 mains.... More

Went here twice on a recent short visit to Brockenhurst. Outwardly the place doesn't look much, indeed you might not think it was open, but inside you will find a warm welcome into a traditional pub with a restaurant. They serve good well kept beers, and have a decent menu. We tried the hot stone menu, where you cook your... More
