I've never been in this pub before although living relatively locally. I was quite surprised how big it is inside and how many covers were devoted to food. We visited on a Friday lunchtime in December and it was not busy. I'm not a fan of the order at the bar system but it seems that it is the most... More

A friend and I stopped by here on the offchance of a light lunch and were not disappointed. Prices very reasonable, we both had a prawn salad which was very well presented and delicious. Wouldn't hesitate to stop here again.

We stop here for lunch several times a year. On our last visit we both chose a ploughman's lunch. There was nothing wrong with it but all the contents looked as if they had come from a supermarket rather than a farm shop. This was at odds with our previous experiences.

Lovely new forest pub with plenty of car parking. Plenty of food choice with a good 'specials' board. Excellent food, good portion with small portion options. This pub can be busy. (which is a good sign)

Mulled cider nice. Was quiet for a Saturday. Ordered 4 different meals which arrived in approx. 30 mins. All nicely cooked and presented. Generous portions.... More

Busy lunch time when we arrived, we were told it would be a 40 minute wait for food, which was okay. We ordered light bites, but they did not do sliced white bread. So ciabata with ham for a 80yr old to get his head around and for us the fillings of prawn and rose marie sauce/ cheese and onion... More

Went there for a pint and ended up having a first class fish and chips dinner which was well cooked and quickly served. Menu is of the usual pub grub type although I was impressed by the huge children's menu. Definitely a family friendly place and gets very busy, particularly early evening. I liked it!

Terrible service and food on visiting this pub today, the gentleman who took our order today behind the bar did definitely not want to be there, he took our order no mention of how long the food would be in fact he said very little, definitely not a warm welcome. We order two fish and chips and one child's meal... More

We went here as we heard the play area was supposed to be great. The play area is great but the food and the service was slow and bad. Non of the food was cooked well or prepared well. Was rather expensive also. Will not be going back
