We were glad to see the re- opening of this charming pub, as the last time we were in Christchurch it was a sorry, boarded up sight. We had a couple of well tended pints- lovely crisp Symonds cider and ice cold Moretti. The sharing plates took our fancy and we had 3 between the 2 of us with extra... More

Lovely refurbishment since we last visited in 2015 - a bit pricey now but was a good burger & sweet potato fries & my fiancé had the veggie burger & fries. Both tasty. Friendly manager. Not very busy but the other staff serving were a bit slow & not very smiley though - no sauces or cutlery brought over with... More

We had two of the Sunday lunches, not cheap and they were terrible. I had beef one piece about the size of a small lady's shoe and of equal texture. My wife the chicken , two piieces of burnt husk. The roasties were ok and the Yorkshire too. The veg was broccoli and carrots both squidgy messes and cabbage completely... More

We were down visiting family and some suggested a pub lunch, this turned out to be a very good choice. The place was quite busy, and it must have been obvious to the Manager that we had never been before because He came over and introduced Himself and showed us to a table. He recommended some food dishes and a... More

Waited 10 minutes at the bar, locals get served first, customer not happy about being short changed, staff couldn't care less, customers walking out, so that's exactly what I did. Used to be my local. This pub is seriously in need of a fun bypass. Oh, and last time I visited was 10.40 for 2 pints of fillers..... Really....,. Never... More

This has been a pub with character for many years, and was originally an old coaching inn. It still has the archway through which the coach used to enter and a cellar with railings where prisoners were kept whilst the coachman was having his refreshments. Unfortunately the last landlords had the keys taken off them which let in the present... More

Whilst the friendly atmosphere of this old coaching inn has been maintained, what used to be a comprehensive and diverse menu has deteriorated to a few burgers or pizzas. (Burgers are good, pizzas are not) The choice of food is just so limited. So disappointing for a what used to be a good eating place for many years. This is,... More

Following my previous review we decided to try again and it was really good. Jamie the manager there is helpful and friendly and that makes all the difference.

After all the bad reviews,I thought I must try it for myself to find out if it is that bad,and I am sorry to say it is! Very poor staff,flat larger and the pizza I saw someone order looked very small and uninviting. To Conclude. I will not be going back, nor will I recommend it to anyone. Many better... More

I called in with the intention of having lunch. The menu was not exciting, so I decided to eat elsewhere. They had London Pride on tap which was nice, but I will not be back.
