A visit to Waterloo Arms is like stepping back in time. Back to the days of friendly, personal, relaxed service, where its obvious the staff actually still care and enjoy their jobs. Beautiful tasty food, excellent value for money. Have already RECOMMENDED to many others. Can't wait until we are next down the forest.

This was our first stop since arriving at Lyndhurst. We had a lovely meal in here and the atmosphere was very friendly. Prices a bit more expensive than other pubs in the vicinity

Decided to go out for a late lunch with my partner on New Year's Day... let's just say I wish we stayed at home. The pub itself is lovely, lots of parking and a nice homely feel. Went to the bar to find out where our table was (we had booked in advance) the lady at the bar pointed to... More

We booked a table for 14 for lunch today for a family get together. This is a great pub, good food & very accommodating with young children through to my 93 year old grandmother. Had a lovely afternoon & would recommend to anyone.

We turned up unexpectedly as the was a fire in the at the hotel next to the pub where we were staying. It happened to be a Christmas Carols sing-along night. We were 6 adults and 7 children but the proprietors of the Waterloo Arms couldn't have been nicer and friendlier. We've been before and remembered it for its lovely... More

The Waterloo arms is a lovely country pub in Lyndhurst. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is well priced and really good quality. The pub is also dog friendly (in the bar). We will definitely go back.

Having booked a family meal for my daughters Birthday, I read some of the previous trip advisor comments and was somewhat concerned however the menu was comprehensive with a specials board for mains and deserts. The waitresses were great, very attentive and polite. The meals were brought out hot and within 15 minutes of the ordering. There were several positive... More

Wow, what a lovely pub! A group of 13 of us enjoyed some fantastic Christmas drinks at this pub. A lovely warm welcome from Mike behind the bar. Absolutely beautiful warm pub and the food looks fantastic. Will definitely be back again! Would recommend this pub to anyone!

Visited Saturday 26 Nov for dinner with my husband with high hopes. The pub is lovely with a roaring fire and comfy leather settees. We ordered Lamb for me from the Specials board which arrived looking amazing. However the lamb was totally inedible, very sinewy and far too pink for the cut of lamb used. I was so hungry that...
