We arrived without booking today which was very busy as the sun was shining. Staff were great and the food was lovely and very reasonably priced. Ample parking to the side of the pub. Recommend

Popped in on way home from family event, for early evening meal. Friendly service, and nice decor. Whitebait tasty, but needed more tartare sauce. Plate not warm, so got cold quite quickly. Only one option for warm pudding on the menu, so disappointing, but opted for Chocolate Torte with Chocolate Sauce, in the hope that it would be at least... More

We visited Friday 10th and Saturday 11th Feb, both nights food was fantastic. The wife and I shared the mixed grill on the Friday and it comes out on their hot grill so you can cook it yourself. Huge portions of vegetables as well. My daughters children's meal was lovely and was a big portion. The staff were great and... More

Called into the Snakecatcher as we're staying at the Thatched Cottage Hotel. We were recommended the Snakecatcher as we had our small dog with us. We both had meals from the "hot rocks" menu. One a nice Fillet steak and the other Portobello mushrooms. Both a good size meal and you decide how you wanted it cooked. Quality of the... More

We were looking for a pub lunch in the New Forest and entered Brockenhurst along the main road towards the railway crossing. We went passed a pub with the interesting name of The Snakecatcher, which looked very ordinary from the outside.. We didn't find anywhere else and so with some reluctance we went in. What awaited us was a very... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my meal at The Snakecatcher and had its fantastic namesake burger. The 'cook it yourself' option looked great and the staff were attentive and friendly. Constructive criticisms: tables cooking their food themselves were creating so much smoke it was causing people to cough and several tables relocated. Also, after we finished our mains we were interested in... More

Very nice restaurant with lovely food. We have been there a few times and the food has always been great. The staff are friendly and polite. We had starters and main courses which were both very well presented and cooked perfectly. Thanks :-)

Myself and my husband popped in here over the weekend whilst on a weekend away in the New Forest. We didn't eat, although the food looked great. Friendly staff with a nice relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended.
