Turned up on a Wednesday evening without booking thought it would be quite empty, but it was packed but there were a couple tables spare. So we were warmly welcomed and shown a table. Nice menu, mid priced but excellent service and quality of food....More

Great pub but get there early as it got very busy on the Sunday evening we were there. We booked a table and it is probably best to do so. Roast dinners were tasty and plentiful and great value, young staff had to be reminded...More

This is an excellent pub. If a pub is packed to the rafters at 6pm then they must be getting something right. Lovely choice of food and reasonable prices. Staff friendly and would advise booking as its always very busy with locals and passing trade.

We ate here twice during recent visit to the New Forest, once for Sunday lunch and once the next day - on both occasions we were really impressed with the food. Quality and quantity excellent - and couldn't be more dog friendly.
