We had been severely let down on a booking elsewhere and these guys were very kind and managed to fit all 9 of us in! We were very grateful for their friendliness and helpfulness. It couldn't have been better at such short notice so thank you very much F&H for redeeming our day! Very good pub menu, food well presented... More

Went in for a couple of excellent (though not cheap) pints and made most welcome. Lovely building and a good-looking menu, though we didn't eat.

Great staff, clean, nice atmosphere. We had tried to get into another pub for lunch but the wait was ridiculous so we went over to this pub and I'm so pleased we did. I'm known for my sunday dinners, the kids always come home for one each week so my standards are high and I can definitely say the Sunday... More

This is quite a large pub/restaurant, ideally situated on the main street of Lyndhurst, one can eat in the bar or have waiter service in the restaurant. The presentation and quality of the food was to quite a high standard

Pre booked for a light Boxing Day lunch for 5 adults, although busy, food and service were excellent. Parking in a pay and display behind the pub.

This pub has such great promise but sadly on a Thursday evening it lacked ambience and was rather cold as they didn't light the beautiful open fires. Great fish and chips though and very efficient staff. Just needed more of a friendly atmosphere during the festive period!!

Hi Joanna A, Thank you for your review. I must apologise we didn't have the fires on that evening, we do try to keep them lit throughout the day and night, hopefully if you visit us again we will have them on ready for you. We hope to welcome you back when you're next in the area. Thank you, Michael More

a last minute booking for 7 was easily accommodated with a table pulled topgether in the bar to accept a canone friend. The food was as expected, hot and tasty, quickly served and even satisfied the vegan requirements of one of the party. The staff were very welcoming and attentive to everyones needs, find a few diggy treats for those... More

Traditional decor in bar and restaurants - lots of wooden beams. Comfortable surroundings for a beer or a meal. Good selection of ales and a nice choice of food in the bar or restaurant.
