I will start with my gripe so I end on a good note. I love real ale, but I am fed with pubs pulling cloudy pints & leaving it to the customer to complain. I came to this pub to enjoy a pint of 6X...More

This is a traditional new forest pub that has been given a very tasteful makeover. The soup starter and chocolate mouse desert were very good but the pheasant was a little over done. Service and the Trelawney Cornish bitter were excellent.
