Great pub!

Out of 3 pubs visited in Lyndhurst this was our favourite. Popped in for drinks and ended up having lunch, food was great. Friendly local pub that we would return to again.

Unfortunately we had eaten next door at the stag. It's like chalk & cheese. I had the steak & mushroom pudding. I had thoughts of a nice steamed suit pudding. Nope, suet yes rock hard yes. I can't recall a pudding served to me that was so over cooked . Truly it was crispy. Pas to the steak, two chunks,... More

Had a fantastic family meal here on Sunday lunchtime. 2 x carvery meals, pork chop with mustard mash and apple sauce, lasagne and 2 x kids meals. Every meal was brilliant. We sat out in the garden at the back of the pub. It was lovely to sit in and as time went on it got pretty full. Staff were... More

Having parked in the car park at the end of Beaulieu Road The Mailmans Arms was the first pub that we cam to as we walked in to town. So it was by chance that we came upon a great eating spot (and the beers not bad either) Go for the Mixed Grill and excellent chips - who needs vegetables... More

Always a friendly welcome here. Good beer and good food. Lovely garden at the back of the pub, but the front is more fun, for watching people and the cars going by, plus the Maserati garage next door is worth looking round! A really historic place in a lovely Forest village, which has plenty of local people visiting as well... More

Obviously, opted for the Sunday roast and was really tasty, lots of meat choices and a variety of various vegetables and condiments, wou. l'd definately visit again especially if I lived closer and really good value for money at £7.95. You must give it... More

I'll get the negative out of the way first - we booked by phone for.a table for 4 on a Saturday evening, and it would have been really helpful if it could have been mentioned when we booked that the pub would be showing the football that evening - we would have given it a miss. However, we would also... More
