We chose to eat here as it was open all day where other restaurants were closed. We were welcomed by the roaring log fire and the smiles from the bar staff. They were happy for us to try the guest ales before ordering a pint of. The food was lovely, my husband had the pork burger which tasted so good... More

Pork or beef were the choices of meat for our carvery. The beef looked so overcooked, the only sane choice was pork. For such a huge joint that they were carving from, it was incredibly dry. There was crackling too, which I'm almost certain were just packet pork scratchings, roasted a bit in the oven. The Yorkshire puddings were oddly... More

What a brilliant trip. Started with a superb buffet meal at the Rose and Crown ( to line the stomach), then on to the minibus to the brewery. Tour by expert staff, followed by numerous tastings of very tasty beers. Then finally back to the pub for a de-briefing! A superbly organised trip, ably supported by the ever attendant staff,...

Started off looking nice inside, however the food is absolutely rubbish! I ordered the pork belly and my partner ordered the burger, with cheese. Our orders came, but no cheese on the burger. We had already paid for the meal at the bar, so we didn't get a refund from that. He could tell that the burger was a frozen... More

Best pork belly, mash and red cabbage I have ever had. Great value, smashing food, attentive staff what else do you need from a pub with dining? Ok the place needs a good clean and update but hey when what you eat is good quality you can overlook a few small niggles. Definitely going back next time we are in... More

While on business in Southampton I met a friend for a meal in Brockenhurst on a wet and cold January night. The bar open had a log fire, and we were lucky enough to get seats by it. There were other areas leading off the bar, in two directions, with plenty of tables. There was a good selection of beer... More

I can't rate this pub any higher. We visited here on our first night's stay in the New Forest, and we weren't disappointed. The staff were very polite, especially a young lad with long hair. He was one of the highlights of our evening. Just well spoken, polite and not pushy. I had a massive burger and my girlfriend had... More

Our family were over from Australia, staying near by, so 20 of us were booked for lunch. The pub and the accommodation is fine, they take dogs which is great for us. The meal was nice enough, not very tasty, but with over 100 to serve, a difficult job. The staff and ambience is welcoming
