Stumbled on this pub by chance during a stay in The New Forest, friendly staff and absolutely gorgeous food. Medallions of pork wrapped in Parma ham with a shallot and Madeira sauce, spring veg on a bed of mash. Did come with Rosti but that had Parmesan in it not a favourite of mine, so they didn't mind changing it.

A large group of us booked the Silver Hind for Sunday lunch during a hen party weekend in the New Forest in April 2014, and by god what a treat we were in for!
Having no idea what to expect, we were delighted by the warm welcome and spacious atmosphere inside. Being a group of 12, we ordered all varieties of roast on offer, and each plate arrived piled high with delicious roasted goodness! Personally, I had the pork which was simply delicious with stuffing and very moreish roast potatoes!
One member of our group is vegetarian and asked for a few alterations to the veggie option on the menu - this was done without any problem whatsoever.

The staff are a credit to the pub, extremely efficient and pleasant. I think the owner (very jolly friendly man!) was also on hand that day, chatting to customers and making sure everyone had the best possible time.
As for dessert (only the strong could manage it as the roast was huge!) I had Tiramisu which was utterly delicious again, and a very genourous portion!

All in all, if you are looking for a lovely pub with outstanding non-pretentious food, the Silver Hind is the place to go!

A very pleasant and welcoming pub set in the New Forest village of Sway. We were visiting the New Forest and seeing some of our family for the first time this year. Our family recommended 'The Silver Hind' and what a find. The welcome was absolutely lovely and having a baby and a dog in the party the staff were not fazed at all and the child's meal arrived very quickly so that the Mum could feed the hungry one and we could relax while we ordered, even the dog got a bowl of water.
The food was tasty and all home cooked with good sized portions what more could one ask for. can not wait to visit again and enjoy 'The Silver HInd' again, we will return!!

My husband and I visited on a Friday lunchtime to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was our first visit and we were very impressed with everything. The service was excellent and the knowledge of the waitress fantastic. We both had the tasting platter for starters which meant we could try a small sample of several starters which was a great idea and we enjoyed the homemade breads which we were served. We both had the lamb for mains which was delicious and as we were both rather full afterwards finished off with tea and coffee.. As we live locally we will definitely return soon.

My wife and I had a drink in this nice pub. We decided to have some thing to eat. Glad we did. The food was great and well presented. The price was fair. We both had two courses for £10.95 each. The fish cakes are wonderful. Thank you chef.
