My Dad couldn't make it so had phoned previously to arrange a bottle of champagne and sort out payment and everything was set up and ready when we arrived. The food was good... read more

We were a little concerned when we telephoned and they said it wasn't necessary to book, even though there was seven of us! We need not have worried, however, because we had a great lunch. This place doesn’t have pretensions - it's a pub and it serves traditional British pub food. We all really enjoyed our meals and the service... More

We stopped off here for lunch before returning home after a weeks holiday at Shorefield. The pub is nice and clean and the staff friendly. The Ale is well kept and the food is good with a fairly large range of dishes to choose from including a specials board. I see the very over enthusiastic waiter from last year who... More

Called in for lunch with friends en route through the New Forest. Although the decor and overall feel of the restaurant is rather old fashioned, the food was served in a timely manner and by friendly staff. We went for ham egg and chips, but there was quite a wide selection of other food on offer, including at least 6... More

After a long hike in the local area the Cumberland sausage and mash at this pub hit the spot. My other half had the lasagne which tasted great and the garlic bread was fantastic. Great rustic pub food. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Good atmosphere and friendly, attentive staff.

We stayed in this hotel many years ago and, being in the area, we decided to have a drink there. The bar is very homely and welcoming. We didn't stay for a meal, but it was nice to be there again.
