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!

A pub with excellent ales and suitable for different moods. I had great fish and chips in the evening in a packed bar with the rugby on, and the following day had a very good lunch with dog and children in the lounge bar. The landlord is a genuinely nice chap, and it's welcoming and generally a fine traditional English... More

the position of the hotel and the food are excellent.you can tell the owners work hard on place.building the properties next door I'm sure are helping to renovate the place(selling of the stables) maybe they could have been put abit further away! I remember it how it was years ago.

We ate twice at the pub during our New Forest stay. The food and drink was good but some of the meals could have been hotter. The atmosphere was good but the bar staff were kissing behind the bar rather than serving. The bar staff were male and female I hasten to add. This is a popular pub and we... More

We did not expect much from this very local looking pub but the food there really surprised us. Both, the burger and the pie were outstanding and we will be back for our next visit.
