Visited this pub one Sunday for a family meal. We were welcomed on entering the pub by a very pleasant lady and shown to our booked table. Service was excellent but we found the menu rather limited. Two of us had the battered fish and chips but we found the fish itself rather meagre. However one of our group is... More

It was lovely sitting in the restaurant garden with the gentle breeze blowing softly through the restaurant. The staff were all so lovely to us and the inner feeling of the pub was so traditional and beautiful. All the food was delicious and fresh. My mother had a amazing vegetarian linguine and my father had a fabulously tender steak. Visit... More

One of those new forest pubs where you get the impression it's about the money not the service . Not much atmosphere. We waited ages for a drink while staff in uniforms mopped up, ignoring us. Eventually we left and went to another pub. Yes

We booked a table at The Old Beams for a family Easter lunch. We've eaten here before over the years and it's always been a good venue. Sadly not the case under the current management. We were offered drinks on arrival and water for the table. That was the only time during the meal. Having placed our order, we patiently... More

Been years since I went here and it's changed a lot. Old period thatched pub with a modernised interior. Lots of comfy armchairs in the lounge and a nice fire even though it was gas. Only went for coffee but stayed for a light bite. Very nice. The other food looked good though but maybe not the cheapest in the... More

Having booked a table for an evening meal, on arrival we waited by the bar at the 'Wait to be seated' sign. After 3-4 minutes a member of staff approached and said he'd look for our table. 5-10 minutes later we decided to order drinks from the bar and sit in the lounge chairs. The bar services was so slow... More

We both a sandwiches, I had the steak sandwich with horseradish, delicious and my wife had the roast ham with a side order of chips. It was very relaxing and we would love to have... More
