Good-sized portions and cheerful service. A lot of emphasis on meat but veggie and gluten-free options as well. Changed our table to give us an open fire on a chilly winter afternoon. A nice haven after a walk.

I usually avoid “tourist centred” pubs because they get passing trade whether they’re good or bad, but this was a recommendation.
I can’t quite understand the logic of putting most of the menu (albeit posing as “specials”) on boards above another dining table out of sight of most of the restaurant. This forces weary walkers to stand in the middle of the restaurant and stare just above the heads of fellow diners for a good few minutes to take it all in.
Food was ok, although not as “freshly prepared” as they would have you believe. Staff were pleasant and friendly.

Really enjoyed steak night. The good is good and the staff make a real effort.
The pub is within the new forest so wild horses wander outside

Have not been here for a while, staff still as friendly as ever.
Lovely lunch despite the place being extremelly busy there was not to much of a delay on the food arriving, however we did not mind as it gave us time to catch up with the people we had not seen for some time.

Not pushed to eat and go etc and we had a very nice afternoon just chilling with good company
