Busy Sunday

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

I went into the pub with my boyfriend after a long lovely walk through the new forest. It said that they were showing the rugby so we popped in to watch. As soon as we walked in it was a bit of a strange atmosphere, immediately we felt like the odd ones out in the pub. There was a tv... More

weekend cycle trip around the new forest and Lyndhurst looked like a suitable place to stop for lunch. This was the first pub we saw coming in on the road from Dibden and it had somewhere we could secure the bikes out the front. All we needed then was decent service and good food which I am happy to report... More

Having been forced to leave two previous venues, one because they said they were full (didn't look like it) and the other due to appalling service, we alighted up this gem....Nothing flash, nothing exciting. Excellent, quick and friendly service and good, sensible, food at very reasonable prices...2 meals for £14:00 Happy Campers!!

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
