My wife and i decided to lunch at the Trusty Servant after visiting Furzey Gardens. We arrived when it wasn't too busy and both opted for the cheddar ploughman's. It arrived fairly promptly and to be fair the piece of cheese was of good size and ok. It came with onions pickled with balsamic, unfortunately the balsamic was running around... More

Spent a weekend here in late June. Wonderful place. Nice village. Food was excellent. Good for veggies. Breakfasts great. Ideal for a new forest visit. Sam the manager is a lovely guy who made us feel welcome. Thanks to all the staff

Thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. Very dog-friendly pub overlooking pretty village green with 5 refurbished bedrooms. Good food. Lovely big garden. Friendly, helpful staff. Thank you Sam for making us so welcome and thank you to Christine for being so helpful. Hope we can visit again soon.

Both times we had lunch and both times wanted to stay much longer. welcoming atmosphere, lovely blend... More

Visited this gem of a pub for Sunday lunch and was not disappointed. The staff were really friendly and attentive, the food was excellent and it was very reasonable. This was our first visit and certainly won't be our last as we visit the Forest frequently. Highly recommended and the newly added accommodation looks lovely too!

We found this Inn by accident but could not have found a better place to stay. The food was excellent, staff super friendly and helpful. 5 brilliant rooms, if we are down that way again it would be a must R&R Carney. & B&A Merry.

We eat here on a Sunday evening . The staff were very welcoming. There is a good range of beers and tasty food.. The restaurant has been recently decorated to a good style. My only criticisms are that the lighting is too bright and I would prefer no music;the music was quiet and not intrusive though
