Visited with friends and family on Sunday afternoon, was recommened to try it and wasn't disappointed. 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.

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

Called in here for a snack one Sunday lunchtime. Very busy with walkers and sightseers. I only ordered cheesy chips but the people I was with had a variety of food which all looked very good. Nice atmosphere and garden at the back.

Only having an hour we popped in for lunch as this is the closet to the office. I eat here regularly and am always satisfied but it's always a risk when you recommend somewhere. Two of us had the meal deal £14 for two, I had the beef stroganoff and my colleague had the pork chop and the others all... More

Walking around Lyndhurst, on a flying visit to the New Forest, saw their special offer of £1.85 for coffee & cake. A very pleasant day to sit and enjoy a beverage here before going over to Lymington. Interestingly the Meridien Modena garage next door has some beautiful & expensive cars on the forecourt. From budget beverages to £170k ferrari's Lyndhurst... More

Stopped by for a drink Saturday 28 March and noticed that they did a Sunday Carvery so we booked a table for the following day. The bar staff were very friendly and recongised us from the night before. Good value for money with a wide choice of meat and veg and would recommend to friends.

Went in after a little walk around on a day out to new forest. It was a Saturday about 12.30 but managed to find a table easily. We found the staff friendly and pub was clean. The food was some of the best pub food we have had in a while. Me and my daughter had the 2 for £14.... More
