“everything you need in one place”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

from the moment you walk in you feel comfortable and looked after - always a smile on the faces of the staff - the food is excellent - more than generous portion sizes but always for a gap between courses to give your tummy time to recover and digest each course. I love the fact that they sell IFITS - if its in stock and if its possible Shaun will cook it. I follow a strict diet of low fat and no dairy and nothing is ever to much trouble to make this happen.
an absolute must for eating out!!!

“Good value”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

The pub offers different dining areas allowing you to opt for whatever you want in the bar, a dining area or enjoy the well laid out and well presented outside area.

We have eaten here before all be it some time ago and enjoyed a lovely evening meal sat outside. Just happened to be passing last Sunday and decided to try the Sunday Roast. Not disappointed good food served quickly by some really pleasant staff and good value at £7.95. This with a good selection of ales makes it a place worth visiting.

“Lovely lunch”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Called in by chance as we happened to be passing at lunchtime, myself and three hungry teenagers. Characterful surroundings and barmaid/waitress welcoming. Two of the lads had bacon and brie sandwiches, salad and chips. I had the steak and ale pudding and my other son had chicken curry. All portions were generous, food was piping hot, service was speedy, friendly and unobtrusive. Both boys really enjoyed their sandwiches, my pudding was very, very good, but unfortunately the chicken curry was fairly standard (nothing wrong with it, just nothing special). Prices were marginally higher than usual pub fayre but I thought the quality was good so was happy to pay that little extra.
Disappointed that the "Ladies" was grubby but would definitely return.

“Beautiful food”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Popped in for lunch after a trip to Mottisfont Abbey. Staff were welcoming and accommodating. Food was freshly prepared and beautiful. Portion sizes were generous. Cost was in line with what I would expect to pay for this quality of pub food. Will definitely visit again.

“Perfectly wonderful”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

Friendly welcome, lovely building, food was fantastic, excellent quality (Trio of smoked fish was perfect).

So so much better than under previous management, well done.

As locals we are over the moon to have such a lovely pub back.
