We had a skittles match in their 'bowling' alley. This multi function converted barn is very nice. We even had linen tablecloths. The 'small' steak and ale pie was ample and good value at £7.50. The half chicken really was and nice and moist, not overlooked. The food was all hot and everyone was happy

Booked here on Sunday for part of my Christmas present to my parents. We were going to Ringwood Brewery, and it made sense to go out for a nice lunch before the tour at 1430. We booked a table for 1300, and were in contact with staff beforehand to ask about the menu etc. The staff were very helpful, and... More

Drove some distance on a Monday evening for their excellent Steak & Ale Pie now much 'smaller in size' to what it was in its 'heyday' but still oh so good, only to be told they'd run out, even though it was still shown as being available on the Menu. Substituted this for Braised Pork Belly!! Although the presentation was... More

Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy it on this occasion, you should have been made aware before looking at our menu what was not available. I am also sorry to hear that your second choices didn't go down well either, but your feedback is appreciated, helps us moving forwards. If you do feel like visiting us in the future please... More

3 of us called in at spur of the moment for drinks and lunch. Food was perfect. Three different meals were all lovely. Was aware of a short wait on food as the pub was full but wasn't kept waiting long. Food, drinks, staff and atmosphere was superb. Very enjoyable afternoon. Thank you.

We had a very pleasurable experience at the Elm Tree having had lunch on Christmas Day. Food was absolutely perfect and staff could not have been more helpful. So much so, we decided to go back for lunch today with friends, which was every bit as good from both food and service perspective. Would highly recommend. Lovely place.

However what a pleasant evening we had, we were a big table of 23 we arrived and were greeted with a smile and a light hearted Christmas jumper which we all loved as we... More
