Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic experience. We had the calamari, nachos, trio of butchers sausages and the homemade burger - we were so impressed! Amazing value for money, lovely menu and selection of drinks, and the service (thank you Mia!) was so friendly and professional. Highly recommend.

What a treat to visit a pub in the midst of Covid that has a lovely friendly barmaid (all the way from oz) & a limited but tasty menu. We had a burger with bacon & cheese and a chicken burger with chilli .. wow a pair of the best burgers ever with a side of "proper" onion rings ... yes actual onion battered & fried not taken out of a bag. Congrats to the chef & the lovely staff we will be back 👍

Decided to go out for a drive in the sunshine and have a roast lunch without cooking. Found the bar manager at the Crown very welcoming. Acknowledging our arrival immediately. Taking our details for Covid and recorded our details. Husband said the beer was excellent. We ordered the roast beef. Beautifully cooked and well presented. The leeks in a sauce were exquisite. It all seemed fresh not frozen or microwave food. I want the recipe! For those leeks! It was all served piping hot and with PPE in place. Will definitely return. I wish I had taken a photo but I just tucked in it was so good!

Stopped off for a bite to eat and the woman behind the bar was very friendly and took orders for two ciabatta sandwiches. There was another couple there but apart from that no one. Took half an hour to bring out a roast beef ciabatta and was told that the other was just coming. This was another 10 minutes and was just a cheese and ham sandwich. The hard cooking cheese that was grated and falling out. The bread seemed to be a standard CO OP loaf. When I pointed out this wasn’t what I ordered the person just stared at the menu board for answers. Then said they would sort out a refund. No sorry. No can I change that, although I don’t have time to wait again. Won’t be going back here.

On walking in felt slightly ignored whilst locals were served at the bar first. Also seemed to be the only name on the Track and Trace list despite a large group sitting watching football on tv? Beer was good though and beer garden nice and spread out. I’ve been in worse pubs!

We were camping nearby and wanted somewhere dry with food. It’s child and dog friendly and we found the staff very friendly and helpful. A group of people gave up their seats for us when we arrived which was very nice of them. The food was appreciated by all and with the Eat Out offer incredibly cheap. I think even paying full price would represent good value. I’d recommend the Crown if you are in Fordingbridge and fancy a drink or food.

Fantastic Sunday lunch for £12 each. Food was very tasty with a great selection of veg, including roast potatoes, carrots and parsnips, green beans and tender stem broccoli, and cauliflower cheese. Massive Yorkshire too! Amber was behind the busy bar working so hard, an extremely friendly and professional member of staff, a real credit to the pub. Will definitely return next time we visit the New Forest.

Sating at Sandyball and wanted to pop into town to catch some of the boxing day football. After much confusion about changing the games to the game we wanted, we settled down with some nice cold beer and enjoyed the atmosphere. Gutted it was closing early as we would have been happy to stay and catch another game.

Although very friendly staff. A very long wait for food. Arrived, some food over cooked. My curry had a long hair in, which I almost swallowed!. On telling waitress, who was very apologetic, nothing was resolved! Was not a nice experience!!

This pub was friendly, clean with a varied menu. Some polish dishes on offer. We had fish pie which was delightfully different and untraditional. Very very tasty. Puddings were also scrummy. Would return and check out the rest of the menu.

Visited this pub and I have to say everything was spot on. Friendly staff, good beer and proper pub grub. Well worth a visit and they’ve done loads of work to make the experience better outside to the rear of the pub. Well done.

Went in here for some lunch. We were greeted with a warm welcome at the door. It was well decorated to a high standard. We had dirty fries which were amazing. There was a lot of different tempting options. We felt safe because of the covid measures but also still felt well looked after by the staff. The television/ football was on quite loud however, this is personal preference. Overall, would recommend!!

Slipped in for a pint after a dog walk. Football was on about six screens in the pub - that's fine. Beer was just what was required. KIds playing pool in main body of the pub were a bit sweary, but I can cope with that (as long as they're not swearing at me). Fitted the bill just fine for a short, sharp eye-brightener. Thanks

Honestly will not be returning, was the worst experience I’ve ever had at a local pub. The pints were poured terribly I also saw roughly 3 rats run straight from next to the kitchen then down the side of the building, the staff there are not inviting at all didn’t make me feel welcome at all. I definitely do NOT recommend, go to the ship next door it’s much nicer

Recieved a free lesson in how not to customer service.... No welcome No acknowledgement of our existence whilst we were waiting at the bar No notification of a prolonged wait due to a barrel needing to be changed for the previous customer No niceties No respect for the 'first come first served' system employed countrywide by pubs (to the best of my knowledge) - seems if you're a local, you will get served first (big respect to the customer involved here, they deferred their advantage, thanks) No chance I'm ever going here again No way I'll get that hour spent here back Would suggest you go to The Ship, they seem to actually like customers coming in.
