Whenever I visit my Father who lives near the New Forest, we always choose this restaurant for many of our meals out. There is so many lovely choices on the menu and daily specials. We are spoilt for choice. I cant wait for my next visit in a couple of months.

Not having been to this pub/restaurant for a couple of years we thought we would see if it still rated high in our estimation. The restaurant at lunch time used to offer a budget deal for a 2 or 3 course meal. However, now courses are sold individually either from a menu or daily deals on a blackboard. This does... More

The restaurant was full of Happy eaters. As usual we had an excellent lunch, they have specials plus a full menu which covers a wide range of meats, fish and vegetarian plus snacks. Staff are hard working and friendly.

Reviewed this pub before but it never fails to disappoint. Six of us were booked for a Valentines dinner. Arrived and were shown to our table, the restaurant was busy but plenty of staff ensured we were looked after perfectly. We ordered our food and drink and were served in a reasonable time. The food as always was top quality... More

The restaurant offers a surprisingly large choice of dishes and also a dedicated gluten free menu which is always a plus! We were in a party of six - everyone was very happy with their meals, which were well cooked, well presented and of extremely generous portions. Four of us had no space for desserts but we admired the magnificent... More

Pleasant ambience, no piped music, excellent and reasonably priced meal with first-class pleasant service. Very well-kept beer, I thoroughly enjoyed my London Pride. Handled glasses available if preferred.
