“Saturday lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

After a lovely morning exploring the area, it was time to have lunch. We were promptly greeted and shown to a table. We had the Ploughmans lunch with ham and cheddar cheese and a cheddar and apple chutney sandwich on brown bread. If I have to be honest- the Ploughmans was dull- ham was dry, salad was limp, pickled onions had seen better days and the cucumber was cut too thick. The sandwich- the saving grace was the apple chutney which gave the sandwich a lift- the bread was plain brown bread (similar to supermarket bread). Thank goodness we had a bottle of LP champagne which helped us enjoy the lunch too!

“Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Great little hotel, the bar area has a large log fire which was very welcome on a cold February night. The food is excellent and there is a wide choice of dishes along with specials such as Thai fish cakes. Well worth a visit

“Not very good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Went in here for a drink before lunch at the Terrace Restaurant (see separate review) because I wanted a pint of real ale, something the Terrace Restaurant's own bar doesn't do. The beer was fine but my wife's kir was appalling, far, far to much cassis. It was made as if it were Ribena being diluted in water! For a village pub type bar complete with pool table the prices are pretty hefty, the revoltingly sticky kir (small size) and a pint of Ringwood Bitter came to £8.10 The staff are smiling and cheerful staff but sadly don't have much of a clue.

“Restaurant review only - Delicious food, comfy sofa's, impressive fireplace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

That says it all really .. the only mystery to us was the 'Beef Burger' which was £15! Price not in proportion with the rest of the lunch menu and when someone on a table close-by ordered it, it didn't look any more impressive than burgers we've seen in other pubs!! That said, the drinks were great, service great, lunch delicious and staff were 'a cut above' - would recommend.

“Cosy leather sofa by log fire then moved into dining room for hearty warming food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

Got to Beaulieu at 4:30 in afternoon so restaurant was closed, decided to have a coffee in the pub & was offered a cute tasty cup cake as we were disappointed restaurant was closed. Very nice touch. We were so comfortable by open log fire & cosy pub atmosphere that we stayed there till restaurant opened. Menus were brought to us at the sofas so we could inspect menu before deciding to move into restaurant. We had venison sausages & slow cooked lamb, all very filling & tasty we ate it all. Cost about £35 including a glass of wine. Definitely recommend it
