There are a plethora of pubs in the New Forest and I've visited many of them. But if you are looking for a traditional roast Sunday lunch then book a table at the New Forest Inn in Emery Down, just on the outskirts of Lyndhurst. off the A35
The pub itself is very interesting indeed, lots of beams, brasses and nick-knacks, but not too over powering. There are plenty of tables but it is advisable to book. Part of the building is constructed by an old Romany caravan.
The family run pub (Debbie, Wayne and Sam) really do give you a warm welcome, there's nothing better than a friendly smile not to mention a friendly efficient service!
The roaring log fire is truly "A ROARING LOG FIRE" and on a cold day try and book table 9, it's right in front of the fireplace. And if you have dogs, (which are welcome) they will love the comfort and the warmth stretching out infront of the magnificent fireplace.
In addition to a comprehensive "a la carte" menu there is a traditional "Specials Board" where you'll find the Sunday Lunch selection.
I am a firm believer that hot food should be served on "hot plates" and it certainly is. And it is all genuinely home cooked and the slices of meat are certainly "off the bone" No pre-packed microwaved food is served here!! You will not go hungry at this pub !!
Because it's a popular Forest pub, you may have to wait a while, but I can assure you, it's worth it.
They also have a good selection of "Real Ales" and a variety of wines.
If the weather permits there is a large rea garden, with the added benefit of a hatch where you can order from, without having to go inside the pub.
At the front there are a number of wooden benches where you can watch forest ponies and riders amble past.
The Sunday that we visited they had the New Forest Hunt meet. That really is a sight to behold !
