I do not understand the negative comments. A lovely pub. Very well decorated and everything was clean. Best ladies loos I have seen for a long time. The staff were friendly and efficient. Four of us ordered different meals and we were all in agreement that the food was very good and reasonably priced. Would definitely go back.

We stopped here for lunch with a friend and went to sit in the back garden area rather than alongside the road. It's not obvious there is a garden area when passing quickly. There's an artificial lawn and play area so it's good in all weathers and won't deteriorate over the summer. I had a vegetarian burger that was very... More

I found their menu very limited but one of their specials appealed to me. I went to go order from the bar. On the menu it clearly stated that the specials were served from 12-2pm. Because of this I was appalled when the chef refused to take my order at 1:45pm on a quiet Monday afternoon. Because of this I... More

We took our friends (two Norwegians) who were visiting the New Forest for a traditional New Forest lunch! The beer selection could have been better, there was Ringwood brewery beer, but we have all had that before. We opted for a traditional ploughman's lunch, the best meal for long walks and camping... and it was a little disappointing. No pickled... More

Certainly would avoid at all costs... Very over priced for what you receive! Snakecatcher burger stale bun and near no no chips garlic bread was the packs you get from frozen section in a supermarket 10 for £1 - roast beef dinner was awful hardly any gravy and very few vegetables tasteless! Best was the children's meal but chips overwhelming... More
