As a family we stopped here after seeing the children's play park and couldn't fault it. Although we turned up just after the last table had been booked, the waitress said not to worry and made us a table up. The food choice was good and the staff excellent. We ordered quickly as the waitress stated a large party had... More

I visited with my husband yesterday. There was live music and we received a very warm welcome from the staff. Having visited with our children, aged 12 and 10 the previous week, we visited again as a couple. We live locally and we definitely be going more often from now on.

We had a weeks holiday in the local area and The Royal Oak was a short stroll away from our accommodation. I'd checked out their website before travelling and was impressed with the venue and choice on the menu for us and the kids, along with the reviews online. Managed to book in advance with ease (for our first night)... More

My partner, 2 year old son and I visited yesterday. Was a lovely pub/restaurant. Very friendly staff, excellent food and an amazing play area for kids! Lots of space to park and lots of shade offered outside. Very close to beaches and the new forest- perfect ending after a lovely day out :) Will definitely go again!

Came down to the new forest visiting family and stopped off here at the Royal Oak to grab some dinner before heading home. The staff were extremely inviting and friendly, despite our 2 year old son causing a little bit of a ruckus. Me and my partner both enjoyed food off of the specials board and we both certainly enjoyed... More

I and my daughter ("the ladies") went to The Royal Oak in Lymington last year whilst on holiday. Being so impressed, we returned there two weeks ago, and had our meal there every evening for our ten day stay in Lymington. Upon arrival, we received a wonderful welcome when the staff recognized us from a year ago and we found... More
