I have to say the location, food and service were top class. This too with new forest and horses around you! Special mention to Elizabeth for excellent and caring service too.

Be prepared to wait on busy days. This is a very popular pub at the weekend winter and summer. We as locals might not hurry to eat there during the summer months. But it never disappoints. Good basic pub food, always enjoyable.

We were a family of three breaking for lunch on a day out and about in the New Forest. This was our first visit since the refurbishment of this pub. The food arrived quickly and was really tasty. The sausages were especially good. Recommended.

Visited Red Shoot again for lunch, has been revamped. In my opinion, the idea to remove the children's small room with toys etc was a bad one, especially as it has a camp site next door. There is no child specific menu, just 'Small Plates'....More
