We signed up for their email notifications and have enjoyed the benefits: events, meals on offer, great beers and gins!

We like to have a relaxed midweek meal and this pub ticks all the boxes. We are working our way through the burgers and haven't been disappointed yet! A side of coleslaw between two is just what is needed to make the meal perfect.

Their Flowerpot beer is highly recommended!

This pub is literally around the corner. We've tried it on and off over the years and have been hearing good things lately so we strolled there on a rainy mid week evening. What a surprise. There were lots of people here. Groups, singles, young and old, friends and family - locals! The bar is 'lived in' but has a good atmosphere, lots of different beers and drinks choices and the food looked good. There's a sunny evening garden (not tried as its autumn and dark!) but nice in Summer I'm sure. Nice to know we seem to have a well used and cheerful local with decent food at reasonable prices. We will be back for a burger!

We were in Ringwood when the carnival was on so everywhere was busy so chose The Railway as it was a little bit away from the main town. The burgers were done on a BBQ today and were very nicely done with some very good quality ingredients. Pricing was very good and we found that portion sizes of food and drinks were also good for the money.

If you fancy a burger and a good Craft beer pub in Ringwood then this is a good place to go
