“not so good”
Reviewed 10 September 2011

Called in for a morning coffee before the walk along the coast to Lymington (excellent). Unlike the coffee which was indifferent, service non-existent - placed on the bar to help ourseleves, there was no-one else in the pub!

Coffee along with staff attitude - indifferent. Poor value.

Looked at the menu but appeared 'just' indifferent pub quality choices.

Great location, decor rather twee.

“Stick to the crab”
Reviewed 6 August 2011

A great pub in an enchanted village. If you stick to the crab salad and crab sandwiches you'll not go wrong. The rest I can't comment on. Good single malts and rums

“Friendly staff but could do better with the food”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

This pub has a fantastic location near the quay. The staff are efficient and friendly but don't expect the food to be good. It's the place to take children who want chips with everything and it looks set up to cater for families and low budgets (the food isn't exactly cheap but the type of things they sell won't break the bank). I'd certainly go back for a drink and I might have the crab salad but I'd leave the rest of the menu. Anywhere else in the country the food might not be so disappointing but the New Forest has so many good pubs that do excellent food that you expect more.
