Called in for a lunchtime pint. First time visitor. Pint of Doombar ale. Not impressed. Glass had sticky piece of grit-like stuff on the inside. Told barmaid on departure, so she proceeded to pick it off. No comment from her, not really interested. I left.

Traditional pub food. They weren't trying to be something they're not. The bar staff were more interested in carving pumpkins than serving customers. Food was normal for traditional pub.

A nice little no frills pub with good beer and food. Located just across the road on a junction from the station next to the level crossing. I would describe this as a friendly local pub we enjoyed the atmosphere and food after our train journey

Local Ringwood ale in a quaint New Forset pub. An afternoon visit on arrival in Brockenhurst for a 5 day autumn break. The perfect start.

There was decent beer on offer here and although we didn't choose to eat here the menu had a number of good options. It is split between the traditional bar and lounge, so choose which you prefer. We used both during our stay.

I had the misfortune of happening across this pub on a walking holiday in the New Forest. I ordered the fish cakes and please note the plural. What I was given was a single five centimeter fish cake covered in chips. If I had wanted a plate of chips I would have asked for one. When I asked if I... More

We found the place to have a good atmosphere with a good selection of drinks, the menu was well thought out and easy to read, we found the food was cooked to our liking, it was served and presented well. The prices were reasonable and we had a very enjoyable lunch.
