Had a lovely evening out last night with my family for my sister's birthday. 16 of us in total. The food was lovely and on time (we ordered in advance). Lots of love and laughter. Great service, kind staff, very friendly atmosphere. Thank you to...all at the London Tavern 😊More

Very popular pub with very friendly staff. Menu offers a list of typical pub grub, all well cooked, well presented and well served. Good selection of beers, wines and spirits. The only downside is its very popularity which means it gets very noisy in the...bar. Not possible to hold a normal conversation. Better for a party than a romantic evening. The very helpful staff made an effort to find us a quieter table as they became vacant. Recommend asking for a quieter table when booking.More

The whole experience was amazing the staff were friendly and fantastic. The food was absolutely bloody fab. There was so much of it too. There were 5 of us in the group and all enjoyed and finished off every single bite :) I had the...ploughman’s which was awesome the amount that was in the very smart board was fabulous. The ham, cheddar , pickled onion, chutneys, pork pie, salad, bread, was all amazing and so tasty too. My dad had the Katsu curry which looked bloody amazing, my sister had the chicken burger which looked fab, my mum and sisters boyfriend had the lamb burgers which looked amazing too. We then looked at the dessert menu and we were so full but managed 2 between us the Apple and rhubarb crumble with custard and biscoff & coffee cheesecake with berry’s and blackcurrant sorbet and yet again these were both amazing. We will 100% be back again for the amazing service and fab food and drinks. 10/10 Highly recommend, we all left happy and full :DMore

I stopped only for a pint (delicious) and a ploughman's. Beware, this is a sizeable platter of goodies...I had the version with sliced home roast ham, enough to feed a regiment...be warned!!

Hands down the best Sunday lunch out I’ve had! From the warm welcome we received to the outstanding food, it was a wonderful afternoon spent at the London tavern. Service was prompt, food was absolutely delicious..the hospitality was fantastic. Nothing too much trouble, my husband...had the Apple crumble and the lovely lady offered him custard and ice cream!! Happy husband. But oh that roast!! All local meats from the butcher in Burley..outstanding and have already rebooked!More

Roast dinner at The London Tavern is fantastic. The Tav team really do make Sunday dinner something to look forward to. The landlord even puts on his waistcoat for the occasion. Great food, great atmosphere, great friends... can always be found at The London Tavern

We popped in for dinner on a Weds evening as we were planning to be passing Ringwood around 18:30. Phoned 30 mins before arriving to book and good job we did- not many tables free! Staff were helpful, friendly and attentive without being too much....Great menu. Food cooked perfectly and served with style. Puddings were FABULOUS! Lovely atmosphere with nice decorative touches, cosy lighting and gentle background music. The "Tav" clearly has a loyal clientele and felt super welcoming to newcomers - we would absolutely recommend it and will be going back!More
