Some of the reviews surprise me. If you want fine dining, go elsewhere. What we got here was exactly as expected. Simple food cooked well, good ales which were clearly well kept (not sure if Camra has visited). We stayed down the road and were given a 10% discount card. Even before this, the meals were well priced and had... More

We took a short cut to avoid traffic and stumbled upon this old time treasure. It is all you could want in an old school setting with real good food and ales. I hope you all love it as we did. Well worth a visit.. Suzi. Xxx

We were staying at the white rabbit and went for a short walk only to stumble upon the Waterloo arms. We went in for a drink and stayed for lunch, Then, we went back in the evening for dinner. Thats how good it is..

We had a small lunch and the food was not expensive and good. Service was not very welcoming but ok. Atmosphere is great. Free Wifi that actually works.

Ate here on Saturday night while staying in Lymington. Loved it - nice atmosphere, good food - the salmon was delicious and our starters - whitebait and the smoked salmon and prawn cocktail -were just lovely. The menu is fairly basic good pub grub but was really well done. Loved it and would definitely go back.

Another pub in Lyndhurst that has good ales and home made food. You pay a bit more for the food, but its well worth it. Sit inside or eat/drink in the large garden. Good selection of ales and beers. Set back off the main road, its only a short distance away from the main town. Like I said..... its worth... More

Having been here 2 years in a row when visiting the area previously, I was looking forward to having dinner here again. Booked a table for two people and when we arrived the place didn't seem to be busy, with most of the tables still empty as it was still relatively early. Decided to have a drink first before sitting... More

We were recommended to this pub for a meal during our 3 night stay in the new forest. It is a nice sized pub with a decent menu and nice garden. We popped in for a drink one evening, looked at the menu and booked a table for the following evening. We were told that there was a large party... More
