We went here for dinner when visiting the new forest. Started serving food at 6pm. Food was lovely. Sausages and chips. Can't go wrong. Nice staff. Great atmosphere. Log fire. 10/10 all the way. Would return.

This country pub serves fantastic food. The specials are always particularly good as are the pies and puddings on Pie and Pudding night (first Friday of ever month). The new ginger and orange cheesecake is glorious and I hope will stay on the menu!
