Oriental based menu. Speedy service and tasty food. Mixed Hors D'oeuvres to share and the stir fried beef were excellent. Busy though so need to book.

Stopped in Ringwood on a wet lunchtime and asked a local. Immediately welcomed and barman brought over a Timothy Taylor. They also had Summer Lightning and good wines. Enthusiastic and pleasing staff, good, clean and tasteful interior and very good Asian food. The aromas call you from a distance. They have 8 good rooms. This team is most competent and... More

Found this place by chance. It's a small town centre pub. On the door is a polite notice asking guests to be in smart casual dress or better. It's cosy and if it was full could feel cramped. The bar lady was polite and efficient. The lunchtime menu is limited in number of dishes but has snacks, English meals and... More

Great chinese style pub grub served in this pub. Tasty and fresh. Go at lunchtimes it's half the price roughly. Ok at lunch time the menu is not as extensive ad the evening but great value. Enjoy with a pint

This is unusual by consisting of two rooms with a connecting corridor. Originally there was a coal fire, but recent conversions have turned this into an empty fireplace. The old bar has been removed and replaced with a more practical design. Having said that it still has atmosphere and a good pint. Unfortunately on our visit the place was full... More

From appearances it's a typical English pub. The menu however is home cooked Asian food that really impressed me. I had the Kung-Po Chicken and my wife had Thai green curry. Both hearty sized portions, good value and tasty. Staff were efficient and the pub had a friendly local atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

We visit this pub usually once a week for lunch so I feel that we can provide a review based on the many number of times we have visited. We love this place to eat Asian food, it is excellent value for lunch and they also do buffet evenings. The food is cooked freshly and tastes very authentic. There is... More

Visited here with some friends. The food looked nice but was disappointing. Definite lack of taste. Staff were friendly enough.
