A lovely country pub

We went to the Waterloo Arms twice for an evening meal while we were staying at the Best Western Forest Lodge only a very short stroll away. Good choice of food and very friendly staff. We were pleased that they served half portions of some of the meals - we could never have eaten a full portion... read more

We saw the sign for this pub on the side of the road written on a landrover and we are so glad we decided to give it a try! Great food and friendly service. The starter of prawn cocktail and salmon was really good, as were the garlic mushrooms and cheese. Both were served with lovely warm bread and butter.... More

A relaxing, friendly local pub for drinks and food, close to where we were staying at the Best Western Forest Lodge. Spent time here both evenings of our 2 night stay! :-)

When we arrived at the location we got a great friendly and warm welcome from the owner Michael. We were given a choice of cider's and flavourings. There was a great atmosphere and the selection of... More

We had a few too many drinks as we relaxed in this classic pub with really really friendly staff and top class food. It was just what you think of when you dream of a great English pub. We had fun.

My daughter wanted to go for a drive in the New Forest, so we headed that way. No place in mind got stuck in traffic so took a detour. Both of us felt hungry, I saw the sign for the Waterloo Arms &decided to give It a try. One of my better ideas! We were a little early for lunch... More

What a wonderful find! I have driven past the sign to the Waterloo Arms for many years, but because it is tucked out of sight I have never stopped. Good food is served all day. The staff are friendly and welcoming, and I felt at ease, on my own, while waiting for friends. Good choice on the main menu with... More

Called for lunch and ordered tuna baguette and fried chicken baguette. Chicken was good and came with salad and nice chips, but the tuna mayo was a bit wet and bland. Good service, would be nice if there was a German lager rather than just expensive Italian. Dogs and children welcome-pity the dogs in the pub at the time were... More

We visited the New Forest to show an American friend the pony's and a quaint little English pub. We had visited the pub a few years ago to do the same with some other foreign visitors. The atmosphere is excellent and did exactly what we wanted. Although, the food was good it was only pub standard and the previous experiences... More
