Stopped at this pub for lunch on a drive through the New Forest. It was a lovely sunny day and we were traveling with our dogs, so the large, nicely planted back garden was just the ticket. The staff were friendly and efficient, the setting was lovely and they were very dog friendly, even offering a selection of doggy food for your 4 legged friends. First time I had come across that! Food was pretty decent, though nothing really specail. I had a Chicken Caesar salad and my husband the scampi and chips. While my salad was better than many I have encountered in pubs, with a freshly grilled well-seasoned chicken breast and a very nice dressing, my husbands scampi was the bog standard, heavily breaded frozen variety, peas were the same, and the chips just OK. The saving grace was a lovely homemade tartare sauce. The bottom line is that it is what it says on the package, but with no real flair from the kitchen.
