“Excellent atmospheric ...”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Nice relaxed place ... comfortable, laid back interior, good music, attentive staff, simple but good menu (we went for lunch), ale on draft. We had good quality burgers, omelette and ham terrine, and nice cake. Bustling on a Saturday afternoon so obviously popular in a town with plenty of competition.

“Quirky Decor & Great Find”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Went for dinner with my wife & 5 yr old son whilst on holiday in New Forest & staying in Ringwood. Arrived early evening & was quite quiet on arrival so no trouble finding a table having not made a reservation. We had starters of breads with oils & olives which were more than adequate & wife really raved about the olives don't know whether they came from deli in town. My son had pesto pasta which was probably enough for an adult yet alone a small child & great value for money whilst we devoured our starter. Mains of rib eye (rare) for me & warm goats cheese salad for my wife were also excellent. The steak came rare which is a rarity (excuse the pun) when ordering a steak how you want it, loved the fries, bearnaise sauce & tomatoes, shame the mushroom was a bit paltry in comparison. Wife said her salad was one of the best she had had in ages.
All in all an excellent vist, service was efficient & friendly, loved the quirky decor which was made even more atmospheric with the great Halloween decor. Would I go back again? The answer is yes as went for a morning cuppa 2 days later & still could find very little to fault.

“Best in Ringwood”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

I really rate this recent addition to the Ringwood cafe, bar, restaurant scene. The tea and coffee are very good and the cakes excellent. I have not had a meal so cannot comment on the food.

The shabby chic atmosphere works very well and it is one of the few places which can carry off the daytime to night time transition well.

Occasionally the service can be a little erratic but this is more than made up for by the friendly attitude of the staff

Table service and a few free newspapers to read are a bonus

Give it a try
