We have had lunch in the pub with friends and have used the takeaway pizza service, and both were good! I'm not sure how authentic the Italian recipes are, but the food is very tasty and usual sort of prices for a half decent pub these days.

I recently had a lovely holiday at Little Noddin Barn near Ringwood and decided to have an evening meal at the Pickwick Inn at St Ann's Chapel having dined here in 2015 we thought we were in for a lovely time, unfortunately this was not to be the case.
The food was merely average and the cask ale ( Jail Ale ) tasted more like diluted vinegar. The locals at the bar were constantly using bad language which was very annoying even more so by the fact that a child was at the bar.
After a long day we had little choice but to eat but the ale was left along with a comment on its poor quality
In defence the young waitress that served us was very polite and apologetic but it was a one off visit and we travelled further a field for the rest of the week.
In short don't bother its not worth the effort.

The pizza we ate there was so good - better than in Italy! Loved every single bite and was in absolute heaven!! Was also nice to sit outside in the summer.
Don't miss it if you love pizza.

We have driven past this pub many times when visiting Bigbury and Burgh Island, but on this occasion needed an evening meal. This turned out to be an ideal choice with an excellent Italian-themed menu in a dog-friendly environment. The Pickwick proved very welcoming, and we were provided with table service, even though we were inthe bar area with our dogs. We both chose pizzas, me going for the hotter chicken, chilli, chili oil version. Superb. Italian desserts to follow, then on our way. The pub is typically English, but the decor (mostly photos) and menu are definitely Italian. On the day we learned we were leaving the EU, this could be the future!

Good honest food served in large portions and very tasty, good range of drinks too. All tables were full on the Saturday we visited and service was still attentive and with a smile.
