Great beer (Wadworths), prompt service of Pieminster pies, unpretentious busy pub with board games and TV coverage of the rugby that didn't overwhelm anyone who'd just come in for a quiet drink. My favourite pub in Lymington, just wish it was up the road from my house so I could come more often...

We booked this last minute and were very happy with what we got. I always worry booking rooms in a pub, but here it was done with the utmost professionalism. The room was large, bright, airy, clean, and really nicely decorated. The staff were lovely and really welcoming and helpful. I was happy to find they had veggie sausages for...

The wife and I were attending the preview party of an exciting new venue in Lymington: Koh Thai Tapas. We booked into The Bosun's Chair purely because of its location, parking and sensible price. We were bowled over by the flashing smile of Meghan who welcomed us right regally! We had Room 1 which was spacious, warm, well-appointed and quiet....

Excellent value especially given the area and price of other local options. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast cooked quickly and good quality. Not noisy despite being a pub. Only downside was the offering of the hate-ridden Dailly Mail and comparable Sun newspapers at breakfast time , although I didn't detect any xenophobic, homophobic or sexism from the staff. Would...

We stayed here for 3 nights. On arrival the staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help us if they could. We booked a double room with a private shower. The room was very clean and they provided a Tassimo machine where we could make coffee, tea, hot chocolate etc in the room. The bathroom was...

I booked this B&B for myself and my parents, as we were visiting the area with friends. What a lovely place to stay. The rooms were really nice, clean with good facilities. The breakfast was home cooked and nothing was to much trouble. Mags was amazing. They even got some flowers and put them in the room for my mum...

Lovely over night stay for a wedding up the road. Generous sized bedroom with a lovely Bosch coffee maker, lovely hot shower with good water pressure too. Breakfast was freshly made and hot. The daughter of the pub was very accommodating and pleasant. Would stay there again.

Lovely and friendly pub. Good selection of beers for a small pub. A nice beer garden and the most friendly staff you could ask for. 30 second walk from Lymington town station and lots of sport on (but not rowdy in the slightest). Would highly recommend if you are down in Lymington for the day.

Our room (no1) was at the front of the hotel a little noisy early in the morning from traffic but not too bad. The bar area was a little dark but there is...

Second visit here but not last. Staff are very friendly and helpful, the car park at the back is good and the gardens are immaculate. The hotel \ bar is clearly in an old building but it is well maintained and attractive. The room was huge and some great features like strong wifi, good coffee machine and usb plugs are...
