If you like your pubs... this is a " close to home pub" I dont just say this because I grew up in a surrounding village. But wherever you're from you feel at home in the environment. Nice exposed wood, open fires, outside area. Literally just on the forest with horses walking around. The food I've had here on several... More

We were a group of 4 and although we have been coming here off and on for years I can only say it realldoes get better every time. The pub is a tardis. Lots more space than you see from the outside and the staff are friendly and polite. Excellent food. Great choice of drinks.

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)
