Found this pub searching trip advisor whilst on weekend away and couldn't have been more pleased with the service and food. We had 6 children with us so sat outside whilst the children played, seating area good and away from the play equipment enough to enjoy meal. The pub was extremely busy but throughout the service from the staff was... More

A table was booked for the "second sitting" at 1.30 on Easter Sunday. It was really busy but we were greeted with smiling staff and promptly seated. Great traditional Sunday Roast with reduced portions for smaller appetites. Good specials board and comprehensive menu including gluten free choices.

We came here on Mothers Day after a lovely wonder around Burley. I had booked a table knowing it would more than likely be busy and glad I did. We did have a short wait as it was extremely busy, so totally understandable and the waitress was very apologetic, however after we had ordered, all three courses were served in... More

My husband received the wrong dessert. Apple pie instead of toffee apple tart. I ordered from the main menu, chicken curry, which when it came, was not... More

Whenever I visit my Father who lives near the New Forest, we always choose this restaurant for many of our meals out. There is so many lovely choices on the menu and daily specials. We are spoilt for choice. I cant wait for my next visit in a couple of months.

Not having been to this pub/restaurant for a couple of years we thought we would see if it still rated high in our estimation. The restaurant at lunch time used to offer a budget deal for a 2 or 3 course meal. However, now courses are sold individually either from a menu or daily deals on a blackboard. This does... More
