“Wouldn't return”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

We stayed here on the 14 th and 15 th feb .The room was basic and the tv lost signal frequently .
The breakfast area was sticky and glasses and cups not fully cleaned ....
But what was worse was that a poster advertised a stay of 14 th feb at £34 including breakfast we paid £109 for that night !
All very basic for the money paid

On arrival we was shown to our room only to find the tv not working, whilst waiting for the manager to come and sort it out we could hear people talking very loudly and then realised we had been put in a room with an adjoining door so the people we could here were in the very next room with just a door separating us!!! We asked to be moved to another room which was granted only to find the room was smaller and no tv reception! We made a hasty exit expressing our disappointment. ..very poor

On our way back from a weekend away we saw the White Rabbit and decided to stop for Sunday Lunch. As I am on Slimming World eating out can be a pain for me as I can't seem to eat the majority of food on a menu but I ordered the healthy Cod loin on a bed of vegetables and lentils and it was lovely. My partner ordered the Sunday roast and it was also beautiful. The atmosphere was friendly and inviting and most importantly warm in this cold weather. Would definitely stop here again if passing. Great country pub.

Just returned from a weekend BREAK to lyndhurst. We decided to try the white rabbit for a meal on Sunday night and we were not disappointed. It was not over busy but the service and food we received were excellent. The also have a great selection of wines at a very reasonable price not like some in the high street. We look forward to returning to the white rabbit on our next visit.

Was pleasantly surprised when I stayed here. I picked up a late deal at a low price and wasn't expecting too much. But it was lovely, roomy and really enjoyable. If you looking to stay in the forest on a budget I would suggest giving the white rabbit a go

I booked via late rooms who failed to inform the hotel. We arrived very tired and my wife was ill, the good folk at the white rabbit made us feel like family. I cannot thank them all enough. The room they gave us was great, large, serene and extrmely comfortable, the food and service were beyond anything we expected, all so good. We nearly went through the menu during our stay and it was all great value. My favorite was the lamb shoulder, Mmmm divine. I will be back and will recommend to all my friends and family. Well done to all at the white rabbit. Thanks so much..

Room Tip: tell the staff what you require and you will be fine..
