The ladies toilet has one regular toilet and a disabled mixed toilet. There is not enough room to close the door with a regular size wheelchair which means the door remained open whilst my husband used it . Ladies using the other toilet would be able to see the back of the wheelchair with the open door causing embarrassment to... More

A lovely pub serving great tasting traditional food. Not the place you find driving through the area so really pleased we checked out TripAdvisor looking for somewhere to eat on our way home from Southampton.

Took the family out for Sunday lunch, child, teenager and 2 adults. Everyone ordered roasts. Took about 20 minutes to arrive and they were quiet. The food used to be excellent in here but haven't been since it changed hands. The veg was well cooked- not too hard not too soft and there was enough. Roast potatos weren't great and... More

Just had a fantastic evening with great friends in this wonderful quaint traditional British pub. Beautiful and cosy interior, with a warm and friendly atmosphere and fabulous happy staff who made us feel very welcome. The service is brilliant, perfect timings between courses and the food was very well presented and most importantly delicious. Will definitely be coming back again.

We just had our Annual Dinner here for the third year in succession. It was brilliant! We are an archery club, so as you can imagine we are a pretty mixed bunch - but everyone enjoyed themselves and all felt it was excellent value.

Two meals, steak pie with tender steak, plenty of gravy and puff 'lid' to come with salad and chips(Salad and chips never arrived) Liver and bacon with mash and vegetables was excellent. Two turkey dinners which were a real disappointment. It seemed... More
