Came as a group for lunch after we had a short walk close by. Glad we booked as it was very busy! Ordered at the bar, we all had roast dinner and can say it was very nice. Good little find!

We enjoyed lunch here a couple of month ago. It was in the week so very quiet, but I am sure it is a lot busier at the weekend. Good choice of menu for us, as we do not eat meat.

This place was so busy and we should have booked ahead, however we called in at about midday only to be asked if we could come back for a table at 2-30. We went for a pleasant walk around the lovely area and true to their word a table became vacant. The menu was ample for a lunch, food was... More

Visited the red shoot sun 6th Nov 2016. Been here before but never on a Sunday. The pub was really full. Our food only took 20 minutes to come which was surprising considering how busy they were. To keep up the speed with orders the kitchen failed to cook the vegetables. I had to take time to saw through cauliflower... More

We walked over to the red shoot for a coffee, arriving just after 11am all the tables were reserved for Sunday lunch. We only wanted a quick coffee before continuing on our forest walk. We sat at a table and took 2 chairs from another table only to overhear staff members asking why we were stealing chairs from reserved tables.... More

Walked to this pub twice whilst saying in the New Forest for a week two miles away across country. The pub is great including beer from there own micro brewery, the food is very good also, good portions and very reasonable price. Will definitely go again on next visit to New Forest in the Ringwood area!

While spending a weekend in Burley with friends, we went to The Red Shoot for lunch. I wasn't very hungry so had the carrot and squash soup with bloomer bread. Was excellent. We had to sit outside as no space indoors and the table heaters weren't working. Friend's burger was fine but over cooked and dry. Very busy place. Great... More

Visited The Red Shoot for Sunday lunch with family. Pre-booked a table by phone the day before. When we arrived the car park was full and parking was a nightmare! Access to the place involved a few steps, which proved quite difficult for my elderly mother, so bear this in mind if you have someone with mobility issues. The bar... More

I came here to meet a friend for lunch. There was beautiful scenery through the forest during the drive, and the place was huge and empty. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is a dog-friendly pub too! They had a huge range of ciders and I was very impressed that we could order small plates (children's portions) too!... More
