“A lovely traditional English Pub”
Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

We found this little pub on a wet Saturday and weren't disappointed! The welcome we had was great and there were roaring fires in a filled English pub, with traditional country pub decor.

There's a good pub menu, from which we ordered simple snacks (soup and a chicken burger) but we couldn't fault the quality of what we received. Very filling and locally sourced too.

They welcome dogs, so it's great for walkers/cyclists.

Would be happy to return for a casual lunch/evening meal.

“A really friendly and atmospheric pub with a huge down to earth menu.”
Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

It's lovely here- such friendly staff and an extensive no-nonsense menu. We had huge chunks of cheese and pickle and bread, with bowls of chips for two of us for about £17. There was a more restauranty menu too, and loads of choice for vegetarians. Dogs are welcome, although they state that children should be on a leash! A huge roaring fire with sweet smelling wood completed a lovely lunch.

“Very good service and nice food”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Four of us, plus 2 dogs, visited the New Forest inn for a late lunch on Easter Tuesday. We were imediately made very welcome. The beer was excellent and we all had something different from the extensive menu with good choices for the 3 vegetarians. The food was generally good - very nice Watercress Flan. The fish pie was a bit watery and could have done with a boiled egg in it. The service was first rate and very friendly and the atmosphere was good. We will definitely go back.
