Great location but food and staff just not up to scratch. Tepid warm linguine and not great fish and chips. Expensive drinks and dirty table all in all just felt as they have the setting they don't need to worry about food quality. All in all disappointing and doubt we will return.

Not many places open to eat in Lymington on a Sunday night so tried this one. Staff friendly. Good position. Food average. Had hot fish with luke warm chips and pea purée. My partner had the roast and said it was o.k. A bit sad as its location and staff seem to indicate that it could be much better than it is. We were in Lymington for 10 days but didn't return. Found better places to eat at cheaper prices.

Dear MarrobinWarwickshire

Thank you for leaving us your review. It's such a shame you didn't get to come back, we'd have been able to show you that luke warm chips isn't the standard we like to deliver. We are very sorry you found this to be the case on your visit. We hope on your next visit to Lymington, you'll come by and see us again.

Kind regards

Tacky provincial decor, overpriced food and drink, claims to be a gastro pub but it definitely isn't. Fantastic location purely for unsuspecting tourists.
