Positives Manager helpful but obviously inexperienced at managing the Shoe Inn. Good central location Breakfast not bad Room ok if only staying one night. Negatives. (We stayed for 4 nights) Asked to pay on arrival (wish we hadn't! ) The manager and partner didn't seem to care about their guest.Breakfast had to fit in with the landlords commitments. Our room...

Just returned from an impromptu 2 nights away in The Shoe Inn and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was to die for! Top quality ingredients at a good price. The room was very clean and extremely comfortable and the staff/owners were a pleasure to get to know. If you're a light sleeper the traffic on the road outside may disturb... More

We stayed at the Shoe Inn whilst attending a wedding nearby. Firstly the positives: 1. The Landlord - absolutely top man, went the extra mile in assisting us in finding the venue for the wedding reception, and couldn't have been more helpful or generous with his time (and petrol!). 2. The room and bathroom, well furnished, very clean, bed clothes... More

To keep it short and straight to the point, the room was a good size and the bathroom was clean but the remote was missing from the TV and there was still water in the kettle from the previous occupants. Housekeeping not at it's best then. Our room overlooked the beer garden at the rear and we were subjected to... More

My friend and I arrived at 3pm on Friday 6th May for a relaxing break to meet up with our friend who lives in Southampton. On arrival we parked in the car park opposite.

Came here after a day at the falconry. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the bar scene was quiet and comfortable. I ordered the rib eye steak (standard) and my fussy vegan lady couldn't see anything on the menu she liked, but; (I'm guessing he was the landlord) bent over backwards to sort a dish out for her and she...

Having found this place on the internet my wife and I stayed for 3 nights. To start things off the staff tried to charge me for the price of the room plus the deposit and argued when I explained the situation to them. Next, the room.

The Shoe inn popped up whilst searching online for a place in the New Forest that accepts pets. I checked a couple of the reviews before proceeding to book. The Inn is positioned on a very busy road, spacious car park right opposite the very busy road. We arrived on Good Friday, were shown to our room which was very... More
