Been here several times and continue to do so due to their standards, not only in their customer service, but in the preparation and quality of their food. Fabulously diverse menu, lovely atmosphere, lots of parking, beautiful surroundings, a total joy to visit every time.

The New Forest is beautiful, but this is a really stunning location. I have been visiting The Red Shoot for many years and it never disappoints. very dog friendly, lovely garden, directly onto forest walks.
