Everything a local pub should be. Great beers. Good food. Lovely people. What more could anyone want from a traditional English 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.

A group of 13 of us came in for Christmas drinks which we thoroughly enjoyed. Warm friendly staff, lovely atmosphere. A great time was had by all and the menu looks great. I will definitely be back to try the food

Really nice place to have a pint, friendly staff, good atmosphere and choice of beer. Food was a bit below average mind, burger was close to undercooked in the middle but overcooked to the point of being inedible on the outside. Would definitely visit again but find somewhere else to eat.

This pub was friendly and laid back. The resident labrador is cute. There's a pool table and a good atmosphere, we weren't locals but felt very comfortable in here.

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.
