Lovely Country Pub

Really nice country pub with decent sized beer garden. Food was really good, including the kids meals. Lady taking the food orders couldn't have been more helpful. Kids were welcome too.

Found this pub after a visit to the new forest. It was a Sunday and we were looking for some proper food in a "proper" country pub. Well this was it. The Sunday roasts were tasty and it was great they offered half portions. We sat in the garden in the sun and had a few drinks which really added... More

This had good reviews on trip advisor but it was very disappointing. It was very standard pub grub ( fish and chips, pies, burgers etc) and the chicken pie was not cooked properly. A pretty pub, but lack lustre food.

My partner and I really enjoyed our roasts today, they were really good and the beef was cooked to perfection!!! The pub is lovely, very family friendly and it had such a relaxed atmosphere and they were busy too, I loved it...stop reading this and just go :-)

We stumbled upon this pub on the way through the new forest. We stopped to have dinner and it was wonderful, service was fairly slow but there was only one person behind the bar until 6pm. The lady was friendly & welcoming. All the locals also were friendly & chatty. We all ordered fish dinners. Fish & chips- amazing! Massive... More

This has a lovely garden in the sun for an evening meal. The fresh fisher platter was superb and everyone else enjoyed their dinners. Child friendly and good service. Worth stopping in

After camping in the new forest we stumbled across this lovely thatched pub signposted well by the land rover! The 17th century pub and beer garden was just picturesque! We ordered the mixed Sunday roast and it was amazing, well cooked and not too pricey. All the staff were so welcoming and helpful, even charging our phones behind the bar... More
