We have been regulars at this pub twenty years and have recommended lots of people over the years but since new managers have taken over we will not go again. The waitresses are great and always friendly but the managers are known by the regulars as The Glums!! They are not welcoming at all and can hardly be bothered to... More

We hire the skittle alley every year which has received a much improved revamp, along with the evening menu. A good choice of food which was very good, all the different dishes arriving hot and together which was not easy given there were nearly 30 of us. Excellent value for money. Surprising the pub was so quiet on a Saturday... More

This is an unpretentious eating place in a busy pub. The food was well cooked and good value. We have been several times.

Really has gone down hill over the last year. Service is very slow once food has been ordered. Tables left dirty for a long time - this was on a mid-week lunch time as well so hardly peak operating hours

We spotted The Walkford and decided to try it. Easy parking in a... More

Took my nearest and dearest there for dinner tonight. Can't fault it. Two ribeye steaks with chips, onion rings, tomatoes - that kinda meal. The steak was excellent - just as we ordered, the plates were warm, the waitress was pleasant, the bar was attentive, the beer was tasty and cold - what's not to love? And on the way... More

Chose this pub situated on the by-road to Christchurch after many times driving past it, for our Valentine commemoration. We booked in advance but there were ample tables available for occasion visitors en route midway to Lymington. Plenty of parking space and since this pub has recently changed ownership, we decided to test out the food. Earlier visitors reported good... More

The sandwiches and wraps came with chips and also good value for money in my view. Although we ordered our meals at the till individually, the bar staff checked we had all ordered before... More
