Good food and service

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

Went for a Saturday lunch, it gradually got very busy but we still were served with our choices - quite a nice extensive menu with Specials of the Day as well. Good service and a very pleasant lunchtime.

I see that there have been some bad reviews lately, but the pub has taken steps to rectify the problems, with a reorganization of staff. I had lunch there with friends a few days ago, and the service from Carol and her sister was really good, and friendly. We had the two course lunch, the main course was freshly cooked... More
