We only visited for a refreshment during a trekking day, but it seemed as a really cosy village pub. Would have liked to go back!

Delightful evening in this typical country pub. Food was very nice although not all dishes were described accurately. All the same very very tastey and the specials changed in the week we were in the neighbourhood. Lots of option to choose from and an impressive selection of drinks from the bar.

Had lunch here in their sunny grassy garden. Food was good, prawn baguette and boyfriend had a pint of prawns which was also really nice. Service was very friendly and chatty. Would go back.

Whilst staying in Lyndhurst we found out about the Brand New Forest offers which the Waterloo Arms was part of. We went to the Waterloo Arms on our first evening for dinner and we were very impressed with the service and the level of choice of drinks and the food was of a very good standard. We then took advantage... More

We were staying at Little Hayes B&B on the second night of a five day charity cycle ride our family were doing, who recommended The Waterloo Arms and even sorted out some food to be ready for our late arrival. The Waterloo Arms were extremely accommodating, very generous, friendly and welcoming. The bar lady welcomed us, knew who we were... More

A truly beautiful thatched roof pub with colourful plants around the front door and twinkling fairy-lights, it looked really inviting and we were not disappointed! We walked in at 2045 on Friday night and was able to still get dinner. There was a friendly atmosphere, you were not made to feel a stranger. There seemed to be accents from Canada,... More

We saw this pub on our travels and decided to try it as it is open all day for food We arrived at 5.30pm and the place was dead. The barmaid was so apathetic and not very helpful. Attitude was if you can see it, we have it. We walked out.

Stopped over at the nearby Little Hayes B&B who recommended this pretty pub for good value food... And that's just what we got. A warm welcome varied menu and discount for staying in the new forest with " brand new forest" discount card. All in all a very pleasant evening.
