Traditional locals pub with two bars and outside patio and gardens. We serve great 'pub grub' at very reasonable prices. All major sporting events shown on Sky and BT Sport, regular live music, pool table, dart board and comprehensive jukebox. Very close to the train station and well worth a visit!

We stayed in Brockenhurst for 3 nights from Thursday to Sunday. Our plan was to eat in different places on each night. We went to the Foresters on the Thursday for food and a few drinks and all I can say is what a great welcome we received from everyone. The food was excellent and reasonably priced so much so...

Booked a table midweek for Saturday night at The Porterhouse in Brockenhurst. (They don't have Tripadvisor hence reviewing here). Arrived at 7pm and waited 45 mins for starter, and when did materialise wasn't great. At 8.30pm our main course hadn't arrived, so cancelled the order, complained and left hungry. Other diners were waiting for their food too and the majority... More

Everytime we come here the food and service is excellent. The menu is fantastic so much to chose from. Nice outdoor seating in the summer and the noisey bar is separate from the main restaurant which is nice. Such a brilliant pub!

Typical old fashioned pub, more of a drinking pub with pub grub than a restaurant but great pub grub...we had Fish and Lamb Shank and both were great...good selection of ciders and welcoming and relaxed with kids :) Very good as a pub grub hub Average/Good as a restaurant Decor could do with a bit of a refresh as it...

Friendly upon entering. We had fish and chips and burger and chips, all reasonable in appearance but bottom of bun on burger soggy due to salad on bottom, nowhere ever learns. Rest was pretty good tho'. Returned one pint of local ale and was given a Doombar in exchange, no problem, but no good either. Shame. Comfy and friendly.

No word of a lie, I had one of the greatest steaks of my life here - cooked perfectly! Massive plate of food, for a pretty decent cost!

We were staying in Brockenhust and this was the nearest pub so we went for an evening meal. The food was great, good atmosphere and good prices too!
