“Lunch on a cold, blustery day in May!”
We found this pub quickly - it was about the first open place that we found from the train station and we were ready to get out of the weather.
We found a nice table for the 4 of us, but took the waiter a while to say hello and finally bring a menu after we asked for one. There was a menu, but at the bar there was a blackboard. However, we couldn't see it from our table and so we didn't know what the daily specials were.
We saw a nice platter of fish being served, so 1 couple ordered a large fish platter and soup, and the other ordered the fisherman's basket for two - which was plenty of food. (and soup) We all had stout, cider and ale.
The fish was hot and tasty and we enjoyed our food. We decided it was a local's place and not too welcoming to drop-ins. We thought it was expensive for what we got, but then, fresh fish is always pricey.
It was a good place to pop into to escape the nasty weather, but next time, we may try another place to check out the competition in Brockenhurst. Oh, and we didn't see a single pony! I guess they were keeping out of the weather as well.
