Sunny afternoon in the garden

Lovely pub, on a lovely day. I went on a Friday afternoon whilst camping down the road. I went with my wife and 2 kids, 2 and 4, sitting on a round bench. The kids loved exploring the garden, pagoda and fish pond which helped. The menu was good but quite standard. My wife had lasagne and I had... read more

Chose the pub for its location on route and for it being dog friendly. Staff were welcoming, some with limited English but still enthusiastic. Ordered a salmon from the specials board for my wife and a chicken and bacon salad for myself. Food came quickly, but the salad had become a chicken curry. Sent the order back and when the... More

Thank you for you comments and unfortunately your meal was sent through to the kitchen incorrect which caused the issue in the first place,our sincere apologies to you for this. On the salad side we wash all our salad in salt water so we are not sure how this happened. We do hope you will pop in on route again... More

Eaten here a few times with wife and father-in-law who's semi - disabled. The Irish manageress can never do enough to make our visit welcoming. She's always professional, greets us with a warm smile and demeanour and caters for our problem in any way she can. The food is always varied and well presented and the service impeccable. It's a...

We were staying as a couple in a nearby hotel/B&B for a Friday-Monday 3 night stay for my husband's birthday. Having had a little wander around Brockenhurst on the Friday afternoon we spotted the Rose and Crown and, due to its extensive menu, decided to eat on Friday evening. All the bar staff and waiters/waitresses we came across were very... More

We visited this pub twice during our recent stay in the New Forest. Both times we were warmly welcomed and invited to try the guest ales and also the cider before making our selections. We didn't eat but the menu looked very inviting and we will definitely try this pub next time we visit. The staff were all really friendly... More
