We went into the Blackwater Stream for a Curry and there was no where to sit apart from a table by the door. I sat down with my back to getting drafty because the door at the side of me behind was opening and shutting and there did not seem to be any heating on in the pub, since the... More

Lived up to expectations, in all areas, food was cheap and cheerful,( I certainly was not in fear of salmonella poising from the exceedingly well done portion of chicken I consumed), the atmosphere so typical of this place, a cacophony of noise, and yes, we were not disappointed with the impromptu entertainment, when tensions at the table behind us erupted...

Great place to eat and drink, and realy good value. Only negative is the tables could be kept cleaner, and some seating is grubby and torn. Some refurbishment needed.

Want a trusty, reliable weatherspoons....this is it. Usual value but in the nice part of town. Service is quick and it's perfectly warm and cheerful. It's a regular haunt for us if we don't want to cook and fancy a good value meal.

I went to this particular Weatherspoons on Tuesday evening and was as always delighted with the prices. The quality in service has previously let the company down, though the young waitress, Robyn, whom was serving our table was polite and friendly- making our evening that more enjoyable. Only downfall would be that our food came out slightly cold, but was... More

We arrived in Broadstone on a wet Sunday evening looking for somewhere to eat . We had a good value steak at The Blackwater Stream and the local Ringwood beer was well kept and reasonably priced. We noticed that Monday evening was "Mexican Monday" so returned the next night. The Mexican menu was fairly limited and the pub was crowded... More

Very slow service, staff to busy talking. Food presentation a little inconsistent but generally good. Tables are not cleared quick enough or cleaned properly. Superb atmosphere and with a bit better management and an update on furniture would be a top local establishment.

Basic Wetherspoons pub, decor not great, but a busy local pub and bar area clean. Staff REALLY friendly, happy to chat and some great local beers. Great service.
