    This restaurant offers a diverse range of food to suit all tastes. Indian, Italian, Burgers and (it was Sunday) a selection.of roast meals. There was plenty of vegetarian choices across the food range. For a group of people who have different tastes it is perfect. We will definitely return.

    Cosy, friendly and fantastic food. Loved the open fire. The staff were chatty but didn't hover. As friends that hadn't seen each other for a while we took ages to sit down and order! Didn't feel rushed and really enjoyed the meal.

    The two young servers , one on her first day, were outstanding, despite having problems from the kitchen with the main chef away, they covered the food shortages so well it didn’t spoil our experience, in fact they made up for that extremely well.

    We been to this pub several times in the past over several years before it changed hands. I was surprised how empty the car park was (it was always difficult to find a parking space) and then I found out why. The menu was mainly Indian curry with just a few other options. Although I like Indian curry (and the curry was good) not really for lunch. The rest of the menu was very limited choice and my wife meal was not really very good. I think the owners need to rethink their food options going forward. The service was good and the staff where friendly and helpful We will not be coming there for lunch again.

    What a great find, staff were very welcoming and the food was cooked to perfection, authentic and delicious. We will definitely return. If you’re in the New Forest it is well worth the visit.

    Lovely forest pub with great staff and diverse menu to choose from. I loved the Indian food section of the menu - our table had three different curries which were all delicious and served with freshly made naan or rice. Traditional pub food looked lovely too. Highly recommend.

    Have always loved this restaurant.. But now it's even better and the outside seating is lovely too. Love the half price meals for kids but they could do with a couple more"children's"type meals. Mac cheese being one! Our kids were asking for it. Even so we loved it and will come here often. Staff very helpful and friendly.

    Food took forever to come out, 2 people at the table got food 15 minutes before the others! Sfaff were a bit rude and requests for food were given and were clearly ignored when the food came

    sir john barleycorn (Owner)

    Dear Claudia firstly sorry for your experience but being bank Holiday we are super busy anyway and if 4 people order separately the food will come out at different times sorry about that next time share a tab and split later like good friends x

    This is a great pub. The staff were very welcoming and the menu offers a great selection of traditional pub food and a large choice of Indian dishes. The curries are truly delicious and a different from the local takeaway style of food. Really lovely, definitely going back.

    sir john barleycorn (Owner)

    Hi Jill appreciate that so much could I be cheaky and ask you to copy paste that on trip advisor pretty please xxx

    This used to be a great pub, good food, great atmosphere sadly all gone. Staff have no idea food mainly Indian cuisine. The place has changed hands so many times in recent years no wonder it’s lost it’s appeal.

    sir john barleycorn (Owner)

    Dear Kevin saunders thankyou for your review sorry this wasn't upto your taste or liking and there are 50/50 English and Indian dishes on the menu not mainly Indian so please don't tell porky pies have a lovely week Sjb team

    We had a really good Sunday lunch. The pub was surprisingly quiet and we chose to eat outside. The menu was in three parts, Sunday roasts, old favourite pub
