Our family regularly come here for special occasions. In fact, we're coming here tomorrow for my Dads birthday! BEAUTIFUL food, lovely atmosphere, and the staff are lovely. Would recommend to anyone.

Others have written positively about the quality of food and even the dog biscuits made available. I do not demur. Our experience showed an additional side to the Silver Hind though. We managed to arrive late and separated from our transport and any immediate way to pay. Forget the reasons for this but suffice to say that the staff could... More

Dined here on two midweek evenings. Excellent service - friendly without being over familiar and efficient without being soul-less. The service was only beaten by the food which, freshly cooked to order, was a sheer delight. My only complaint could possibly be that we were not staying in the area long enough to return and try more of the dishes... More

We went here for my cousins birthday and had a lovely time. The service was good and I particularly enjoyed the French onion soup.

Could not find a pub to have a light lunch. Then came across the Silver Hind in Sway. They were serving only Sunday lunch which we didn't want due to full hotel meal that evening. However, they let us use a table in the bar area and we had a starter each and shared a dessert (and drinks!). The staff... More

I've been here several times with my daughter and it's always great food & great service. It's a lovely pub in a lovely new forest village

Stoped in for Sunday lunch, the pub/ resturant is a little off the beaten track but well worth taking the detour. Good solid pub food with some Spanish and French influences. Family and dog friendly.

I visited this pub at the end of September and myself and my boyfriend were very disappointed, particularly after reading the excellent reviews. The pub itself is nice enough, and the starters we had were fine. However it all went downhill with the mains. My boyfriend ordered the pork belly, which turned out to be 70% fat with a tiny...
