This has been our go to pub in the new forest. After my terrible experience at the white rabbit. The food is exceptional and the staff couldn't be friendlier. Everything they do is for the customers and you can have a conversation with them. After the terrible "meal" at the White rabbit, in which we left at 9ish. They still... More

This is a lovely, thatched little pub with a tastefully decorated beer garden and friendly, welcoming staff. Importantly for us, it was child friendly with high chairs available, baby changing facilities and an enclosed garden area for them to have a run-about safely.

A lovely, sunny lunch in the garden without rush. Limited but totally acceptable Specials menu. The rest of the menu is not exciting but reliable. Good friendly and helpful service.

My Friend and I went for lunch today. It was a beautiful day and we sat in the garden, which was quite delightful. Plenty of tables and nicely set out. We thought the menu was very impressive and when I saw they had my favourite 'Whitebait', I was over the moon. It was absolutely delicious and although I ordered a... More

A cosy looking pub. Staff were friendly and food was great. My husband and I both enjoyed our steak. They have a lovely garden.

We chose this based on Tripadvisor and disappointed I'm afraid. Starters of half pint prawns ok but double baked cheese soufflé special undercooked on inside and burnt cheese on outside. Beef burger managed not to taste of beef, chips not hand cut, fish batter mix too thin so didn't puff & crisp up, was quite soft and overcooked. Fish quality... More

Delicious and tasty meals. The tagliatelle bolognaise was very enjoyable. The rib eye steak was cooked to perfection and very much enjoyed.

Pub next door to where we were staying. (Forest Lodge Hotel) We had a lovely early evening roast dinner with our two children (aged 2 and 3). We were made to feel very welcome and helped with portions sizes for the kids. They even had a singer on for entertainment! Very attractive pub and very good service. Highly recommend.
