We popped in here for lunch when we arrived to Brockenhurst for the weekend. The food was good and the staff were friendly. I love the look of the place, I'd say it's a proper pub.

Whilst recently staying in Brockenhurst we had one lunch and two dinners at this pub, the food was well cooked and very reasonably priced especially for this area. They had a great specials board.
