Had a lovely meal here this weekend. Our server Kaia was great. Food portions were a good size and the restaurant always seemed busy - having to book a table on a Monday night. Willdefinitely return next time we are in the New Forest.

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
