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.

Seven of us booked to dine here, as two of us have lived in Thailand and miss the food. We had a lovely evening together. We all shared Mixed Platters to start. To follow I chose Gang Kua Sapparod with chicken which was lovely though...could have been spicier. Others enjoyed various curries and noodles. We’ll be back …More

Arrived at 8pm with no booking. Seated straight away and friendly staff were attentive and chatty. Ordered red thai and green thai curries. Delicious food and served beautifully. Will definitely be back!

Saw an advert that Borough Arms had a new menu and were serving Thai food cooked by Thai chef so went to try it. The menu is now limited to only Thai and was obviously more limited than a Thai restaurant but a nice choice...and food as delicious, tasty, authentic and served fresh and hot. The service however was disappointingly lacking. The order was taken by bar/pub staff and food served by Thai staff from kitchen. Didn’t see staff to order additional drinks etc. The pub generally is tired but the ladies toilets were disgusting. The light was very dim with one cubical having no light (bulb out) the other had lumps of pooh on the seat 💩🤢🤮. This could be such a nice pub. The food has always been good but service lacking and the bar area feeling like a kindergarten with toys and publicans children in situ, it’s like an extension of their home.More

The Thai menu is fantastic. The pad Thai I had with the duck was full of good quality ingredients with plenty of it. The price was really competitive and the quality and service was superb

We visited the borough last night to sample their Thai and it did not disappoint. The meal was extremely tasty and authentic and I think they could be onto a winner here.

My wife and I are visiting from our home in Wales and booked a table for Sunday lunch. There was a very warm welcome, despite arriving 40 mins early! There was a choice of Turkey, beef and lamb shank. We chose Turkey and beef. Before...the meal we had a draught Doom Bar ale and during the meal a bottle of Medoc. The service was quick and the portions had to be seen to be believed. Food, including a wide range of vegetables, was cooked perfectly. Great eating experience at a very reasonable price. Would definitely recommend and return again if in the area.More

Stayed overnight in our camper van; a good night’s sleep and a pleasant walk around Lymington in the morning. Very friendly welcome. Excellent vegetarian food; the lasagne was delicious.

We stayed overnight in our campervan as they had a good band on. Fantastic landlady couldn’t have been more welcoming - great good and drinks were reasonably priced. We had a wonderful time, thanks so much, we’ll come back again for sure Paula

We motor-homed here on Friday night, having been alerted to it on the Searchforsites website. There were a couple of other over-nighters in the car park when we arrived. The interior of the pub is comfortable, if a little quaint/dated. The thing that really made...it was the friendliness of the staff, who explained that the beer garden toilets would be left open for overnight sleepers and there were even free-use plug sockets available for use. The menu is standard pub fare, with a reasonable choice of meals and desserts. Unfortunately chef had run out of peas - which is a staple accompanyment for the scampi menu option - not so attractive with carrots and broccoli, same with diane steak sauce. The pub is located less than 15 minutes walk from Lymington's scenic harbour area and the rest of the town's amenities. We would have stayed for the 'veterans' breakfast, but woke up too late to secure the only parking spot that would have allowed our 6m vehicle an easy exit from the carpark in the heavy rain. All in all a welcome overnight break from the road.More

Going by trip advisor reviews we thought this would be on a par with say a chain pub, sadly it wasn’t, for our visit anyway. Food wasn’t great, we had starters, kitchen was mostly out of what wanted so they did add some extra stuff...so credit there, steak was inedible and was sent back and refunded. Scampi was ok, skin on fries sounded great but the reality was a little limp. We ate inside, which was generally a bit grubby and tired and in need of a good clean. On the plus side staff were friendly polite and welcoming and refunded us the steak meal without issue. As someone else mentioned I feel this place is fine for a pint and game of pool but next time we’ll try another pub as there are lots to choose from in the area. I wish them the best and hope maybe it was just a one off on our visit.More

We cannot comment for a casual night out..did nit go for that. The pub is quite basic however, an excellent landlady who was very helpful. Value for money without doubt, do not expect silver service it was very good. Some customers were rather “loud” which...could spoil it for some people. Ideal place to go in to.More

We had tried to book on line for a family of 14 but was declined. The owner contacted us to amend the time to accommodate us. We had a great time with lovely food. Several of us had the Sunday roast with some interesting additions...crispy curly carrots. Great chef all well cooked with the food arriving at the same time for everyone. Staff very friendly and couldn't do more o ensure we had a good time. Would recommend to everyoneMore
