About
It's great to be back! Thank you for your ongoing support over the last year. A few things to consider before you visit: Booking is not essential, though we would recommend you book in advance. Outdoor service is limited to guests in groups of six or two households (no limit on number) is permitted. Please note we may need to vary our opening hours and food service times given the time of year and the unpredictable nature of our Great British weather! To get the most up-to-date notices on our re-opening, keep an eye on our Facebook page. We look forward to seeing you soon!

My partner and I called in here recently whilst staying in Brockenhurst. There is a nice atmosphere to the pub with a good selection of ales and friendly staff. We never actually ate here but the look of the food coming out seemed really good.

Our second visit and even better than the first. Same great quality food (the roasts were stand out, both the pork and beef). This time the service was great; an efficient, professional team. We'll be back!

Yes, they do but it was full when we visited on Sunday! On street parking was easy enough to come by, directly across the street from the pub. HTH. Tony
