I would recommend that you book a table, we went here for my sons birthday. They have a good menu and then they have the hot stones menu which is also fairly extensive, I had the mixed meat which was beef, duck and lamb. It was a really different experience, good choice of beers

We visited the snakecatcher on our recent visit to brockenhurst, and we were not dissapointed. My wife had a salad, which was beautiful. I went for the hot stone mixed grill, which you cook yourself at your own table, I had sirloin, duck and lamb, all the meat was succulent and plentiful served with great sides and very good value...

Only visited for drinks, but the food looked nice. Nice play area outside in the garden for children, drinks prices as you'd expect for the area. Has been nicely refurbished, and staff were friendly. Would return.
