Stopped here for an evening meal, main was nice, served quickly, dessert we waited for 40 mins before reminding them !! The tables in the garden are very strange, like they have been made for the BFG !!! Not very comfortable, not ideal to eat at. Staff friendly and helpful.

The menu was good with a specials board also available.We both had lamb shanks which were very nice with plentiful portions of veg as well. Price is good no... More

The Snakecatcher is our favourite pub in Brockenhurst . They welcome families & serve great food . Ok the food isn't cheaper but I thoroughly recommend the Snakecatcher burger & the fish & chips are to die for . There are a good selection of beers & the staff are really nice & helpful. The outside garden has been recently... More

We had an early dinner at The Snakecatcher on a Sunday night. The staff were friendly and the service efficient. There is a varied menu but unfortunately the 'specials' weren't on offer the night we were there. The food was fine, but not exceptional.

What a find, completely by accident! The most amazing food , cooked by ourselves on hot stones at the table. My partner said it's the best meal he's had in a long time - never known him so quiet. We are in the area for a long weekend and will definitely be going back again before we go home -... More
