Busy but Able

Popped in here a couple of times over the bank holiday weekend and the place was very busy, despite that the experience was very good. The local ale on tap was kept and poured perfectly and the food arrived in good time and tasted good (you can't beat bangers and mash). Inside was very hot... read more

Walked in around 14:00, at the end of a lovely long family walk and made a reservation for Sunday dinner, 4 adults and 3 children for 6pm. Arrived on time. The pub and restaurant were rammed, long queues at the bar and carvery counter, frazzled staff unable to seat a table of 8 (mainly) residents of the hotel who had... More

Popped into this establishment after a walk in the new forest. The food was of very high quality with a great variety. We had the tex mex chicken and the pulled pork burger with the baked cheese washed down with some proseco.

First time we have visited, friendly service from waitresses from the beginning which was welcoming. When ordering food we asked to swap garlic bread with the lasagne for chips however we were told this was not possible. As you were not overly busy I thought this would have been fine and could have been more accommodating- many other similar places... More

Thank you for posting a review and we are glad that you enjoyed our food and service, however the changing of items are usually down to a cost implication but I am sure you would have been offered a side of chips to accompany your Lasagne. We do hope that you will return as you enjoyed our food and service. More

That was our thought when we walked in this place on our way through the new forest. We started with 2 British ales and then got the English meat platter - best was the chicken skewers and the mustards. Then the mains of Hunters chicken for the man and a vegetable Wellington for me. They were both well prepared and... More
