We have been to The Carpenters Arms many times when we visit family in New Milton. The service is excellent and the food delicious. We definitely recommend a visit.

Went here on recommendation and wasn't disappointed. Had a starter (smoked salmon) and main course (lamb shank). Both absolutely lovely, well presented and good portions. The menu is quite extensive and so is the specials board. I will definitely visit here again. Good value for money.

We are definitely an eat out for Sunday lunch pair, and from experience I think any one would be hard pressed to find a better Sunday Roast for the price. First thing I noticed on arrival was plenty of parking, which was just as well, we had taken the precaution of booking a table for 13-30 and on entering the... More

Whenever I want to take family or friends out, this is the pub I choose. From friendly front of house staff to lovely home cooked food, you can't beat it. This was demonstrated by a recent Saturday lunch and whilst the pub was busy, the service didn't suffer and the food was excellent. Highly recommended.

I lunched here with a group of fellow pensioners and we were all hugely impressed. The food was excellent and the service was quick and efficient. There were no complaints and only compliments which is rare when 38 pensioners get together! Thank you Katy for a great day out.

First visit to the Carpenters Arms for lunch with a friend. The restaurant was very pleasant and the lunch was excellent, in fact I struggled to eat it all. Th meal was reasonably priced and the staff were very friendly and helpful

We arrived asa group of twenty walkers and food was not pre-ordered, but the service was excellent and nobody had to wait long. Each individual said the food was excellent and the staff were excellent. I had a substantial egg salad, but it would appear the fried plaice was excellent. Highly recommend

Saw all the great reviews so thought we'd give it a try. We booked for Sunday lunch - just as well as was very busy. Hard to park as car park rammed. We ordered drinks at the bar and sat in the 'function room'. Tables VERY close together and very crowded. Drinks came fast. We ordered mains only, but these... More

We phoned just a few hours before we wanted to eat and they managed to fit us in on a Saturday evening. The place was busy and there was a steady turnover of tables but we never felt rushed. The staff were attentive and polite and the food was excellent with properly cooked vegetables, piping hot and generous portion sizes.... More
