We had a very pleasant lunch last Sunday and the food was very good. Three of us had roast pork (which came nicely cooked with excellent yorkshire pud and good helping of potatoes and veg ) and one sausage and mash with delicious gravy. My only complaint was that my friend was going to have the roast beef and she... More

Egg mayo sandwich looked like mush in cheap bread-refused to pay. The 'red cabbage coleslaw' with the pulled pork was clearly cheap shop bought coleslaw-it was horrible-I picked most of it out. The couple next to us returned their sandwiches as soon as they got them (unsure why). The food doesn't seem to be as good as it used to... More

Popped in with some colleagues on a Monday night, place was quite quiet but we were greeted well and found a table easily. Food came quick and was well cooked and tasty as well as decently good service. All in all quite good.

Such a great place to go. It's a restaurant, a posh bar and a local boozer all rolled into one. We went there for dinner and ending up staying for the evening. The food was excellent as was the service. I love real ale and trust me they serve a wonderful pint. All other tastes are more than catered for... More

I had a last minute booking I wanted to make, 9 of us to come and have a drink and some sandwiches late afternoon, following a small family internment of my Mum's ashes at Ringwood Cemetery. I rang up on the morning, and was told that kitchen would be closed between 3-6pm. I wanted to come at 4pm. I was... More

I was taken here by my children for mothers day lunch. It was a special menu for mothers day. Plenty to choose from still but on a normal day you would be spoilt for choice on the normal menu. The food was wonderful. Service excellent and the flower pot for the mum's was a lovely touch. Was my 1st visit... More

Warm welcome and shown straight to table before taking drinks order. Menu and specials explained in detail. Meal was cooked fresh, local produce and monumentous size serving. Special requests were no problems and willingly catered for(excuse the pun). Quality food served by very accommodating and attentive staff. Priced well for quality and voluminous portion size. Will be going back again... More

The Elm Tree seems to be a very popular country inn with a great beer garden and a huge thatched roof. We ate there two nights in a row as it was the only place within walking distance of our accommodation, however we were very lucky it was! We had a variety of meals from scampi and chips to fajitas... More
