Good food and friendly staff

We visited on a Sunday hoping to have the roast however as it was early evening this had unfortunately sold out- a good omen I guess. We opted for alternative meals rather than go elsewhere particularly as it was not over busy. The waiting staff were very pleasant and we were able to have some... read more

We didn't know what to expect as the pub had mixed reviews on Trip Advisor and other sites. I had the Crab and Lobster Ravioli which was delicious and lived up to my expectations. My husband had Steak and Ale pudding and veg and he, too, really enjoyed his meal. We followed with creme brulee, and were not disappointed. Service... More

The best Sunday roast we have had in a long time. The portions were very good and the roast potatoes were fresh and nicely cooked. We will most definitely return.

Had a lunch here during a very busy time of day but the service and attention were first class. The food was quite pricey but of good quality and amount. Would recommend.

I visited this pub with a group of people and we had to wait over 1/2 an hour for our meals. I understand the group were booked in for a certain time and we arrived 10 minutes early. The meals, when they arrived were warm and looked like they had been warmed up in a microwave or some other way.... More

We stopped off here on our way to Highcliffe. Menu was extensive. Both myself and partner chose steak. My Partner always struggles with getting his steak cooked blue but this was cooked exactly how he liked it.

Went with friends for lunch, first time in years, and the décor and atmosphere were great. Very good choice of beers and extensive menu. Warm welcome, shown to our table, excellent service that far. We ordered from the set menu, and the starters came quickly, beautifully hot, and generous portions considering the "two courses for £10.95". We then waited well... More

Parking is great, decor is lovely. The food was pretty nice, but the service was non existent. The tea was awful, cups tiny and cost £5.80. After waiting nearly half an hour for someone to come over we gave up and ordered at the bar. Service was slow even though it wasn't busy. Waited a long time and no one... More
