I have been to some inhospitable places in the world but this beats. Most hands down we entered it was like a canteen we waited. To be acknowledged this did not happen untill I asked if the man behind bar watching golf was going to serve but we were still ignored. So we left

We spent 4 days in Lyndhurst and either either ate here for lunch or dinner. The sandwiches are excellent and very generous. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The pork hock is enormous and the best meal I'v enjoyed this year.
