Great atmosphere, okay food

We as Dutchies enjoy local places and this pub is a cosy place to eat. Friendly staff, apetizers were amazing, ribs were a bit of a let down (but we are spoiled with American ones), way too much sauce! The menu looks great, but don't expect great quality food for that low of a price and at a pub... read more

Stopped of for lunch here, during a walking holiday; the staff are very friendly and helpful. It was Sunday, so we both had the classic roast a good choice with well cooked beef and plenty of vegetables with a great assortment. Would eat here again.

I had the lamb roast dinner, it was delicious, portions were generous and came with all the trimmings! I didn't visit any other pubs in Lyndhurst while I was here but you wont be disappointed with this one.

Great service from bar staff with regards to menu questions. Seasonal food offering alternative to standard pub staples incl. Rabbit & Pancetta Casserole. Recently refurb, smart and clean while still maintaining pub feel.

This place was brilliant - great welcoming feel to it, a wonderful menu, well-priced drinks. Stopped in here after a long day of walking in the New Forest. Ordered the shared small plates - a whole bowl of tasty olives, fresh local bread and yummy, sticky pork ribs! Both the beef and lamb roasts were amazing - perfectly cooked roast... More

Stopped in here for lunch on a bike ride (there's a garden at the back), and was rewarded with an awesome chicken & chorizo burger, very friendly and helpful service, and a singer/pianist playing Sinatra.

Unfortunately the food does not match the quality promised. The Lamb Kleftiko was just routine roast lamb, not slow cooked,not tender and juicy but dry and under seasoned, The pulled pork again was... More
