Proper old pub with good beer and lovely people. Food was good too. Dogs welcome if well behaved in the bar.

We ate here as a group of 12 friends and enjoyed an unusually warm Saturday in April. The pub garden was really rather pleasant, with lots of seating and a nice, relaxed atmosphere. I ordered a beef burger which I found pretty good although a tad more expensive than other pubs offering similar food. If you go for a drink... More

Went here for lunch whilst staying in Lyndhurst as dog friendly. The menu was classic old style pub. The food was OK or average at best and service was slow. The decor was tired and dated. It's basically a tired old pub which is fine if you're looking for an old fashioned local but well below par to other pubs... More

Says what it does on the tin. Good pub grub served with a smile. Curry was great as was the special crab linguine. Chips were crispy and everything was piping hot. Kids loved the burgers and they were big. Overall enjoyable meal and will return.

We visited early evening and were immediately welcomed by not only the bar staff but also some local customers. The food generally was fine but the curry was dry and the meat not very tender.

Visited - 25th March. Me and my fiance chose this pub out of the surrounding others in the area, as they offered more casual food compared to the other pubs and restaurants. We entered and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. We approached the bar and was met by a nice young man, who said we could sit wherever we... More

Great food, bit pricey but lovely food and staff. Please don't pour gravy on my Wifes chips again! Very close to the Forest Lodge hotel which is great if you get there a bit early for check-in. Very well kept gardens (March 17th)

We were recommended to the pub by the B&B we owners we were staying at nearby .There was a good selection of beers(local and well known names) The menu was simple but varied with a number of specials .Food wasn't cheap but quality good. Most importantly service was good .We visited off season-probably need to book as the season progresses
