Havent eaten here for a while but decided to try their carvery. Stood waiting for ages before the chef came out to serve us, and then asked us to wait another 10 mins while he got more potatoes. This would have been fine if the rest of the veg which wasnt quite under the hotplate wasnt totally cold. All in... More

A fantastic, inexpensive but delicious Sunday roast. Everything you would expect, a good choice of fresh meat, Yorkshire puddings, delicious veg and cauliflower cheese to die for! Friendly staff, good food - a great local pub!

Called in after a walk with a group of friends. The barman/waiter was extremely pleasant and welcoming. Our food took quite a while to arrive, but the barman did come and apologise saying they were waiting for a delivery. However, when the food eventually came it was quite pleasant. Good value. It would have been nice to try some of... More

This is a typical English pub - the clue is in the name. We visited during the summer and found it to be friendly and comfortable. The only trouble was with a couple of wasps, being a warm day and September that is a fairly typical problem, so I wouldn't criticise the pub management for that.

Friendly landlord and staff, great beer, great food. The landlord has something going on most nights and with a roaring fire in the winter, what's not to like!

Five of us ate here, and we all had different main courses. My Dad's fish was all batter with tasteless grey fish inside. My pie was burned on the inside of the crust causing the beef to be very dry, sadly the veg was tasteless too and lacked seasoning. My partner said his sausages were horrid and suggested they could... More

On our way through The New Forest looking for a late lunch, and came across The London Tavern. We all had a pork roast, and it was by far and away the BEST roast we've had in a very long time. Huge meal, but not over the top, incredible meat, perfect veges, just delicious! Lovely cosy pub with a big... More

Had the Sunday roast here recently with friends, mainly because of the positive TA reviews. Nice food, friendly service, decent smoking area outside, drinks maybe slightly expensive for a pub but maybe not in this holiday area. I have to say that my beef was somewhat tough for my taste but my mate happily swopped his roast pork for it... More

I previously said I was disappointed with the Steak Pie I had, but said I would revisit the pub to see if this was a one off. I'm pleased to say this was the case as I revisited the pub at the invitation of the landlord to try the pie again and it was delicious. I couldn't post a further... More

This place has a lot to offer. We visited whilst camping a bit further up the road, and wish this pub was the one next to the campsite! Good range of drinks and whilst not a vast menu, what they serve is good, wholesome, freshly cooked and reasonably priced. I had their pie which has to be the best pie... More
