Was really looking forward to this restaurant and arrived at 8pm to be told that the kitchen was closing. Not that it had closed and although we were sitting down with menus and had made our choices we were (very politely and by a lovely lady) told we could not order as they were running out of a lot of...

The beef sandwich with a side salad was very tasty. Washed down with a pint of beer was just what was needed after a long drive to our destination of Lyndhurst.

We stopped off for Sunday roast as we have done on many occasions. The food here never fails to satisfy. Choice of beef, ham turkey and pork, plenty of vegetables on offer, your shire pudding and home made pigs in blankets made with the tastiest sausage ever! I eat out often and the Mailmans has got to be the best... More

I ordered the fish cake in a brioche bun on the specials menu and was disappointed when it arrived to see it was a deep fried chip shop fish cake. For... More

We visited The Mailmans Arms for lunch on the first day of our holiday in Lyndhurst on Monday 11 July. I had the delicious Ploughman's Lunch, my wife the gammon, which she thoroughly enjoyed and the girls had burgers. They have a decent range of real ales in The Mailmans, so you should not be disappointed, if like me, you... More

Friendly and pleasant. Good selection of food, well presented and of decent quality. Sensible prices - probably the most reasonable in Lyndurst. Was not our first visit and will not be our last.

Visited this town centre pub with family. Perfectly acceptable pub serving food and drink but uninspiring. Pleasant garden at the rear
