Food was great and the added pleasure of the new forest Horses and donkeys all around were amazing.There are new born donkeys and foals as well as the adult ones which are really tame,

This pub is in a fab location with New Forest donkeys right up to the door. Unfortunately I think they rely on that too much and don't try hard enough. The waitress serving at the bar took ages to acknowledge us and was slow when getting the drinks. Another staff member who I think was the manager was brusque and off-hand with me. The pub describes itself as 'traditional', but they really mean 'old-fashioned' with heavy unattractive décor and sticky tables. We were going to stay and eat, but decided to finish our drinks and go.

Lovely place for a relaxing pint or two watching the traffic dodge the donkeys. Was a little disappointed with the food as I was expecting something special, nothing actually wrong with it but not really a wow factor. Would happily go back again. Location and staff were great.

A lovely rural pub with the wildlife, such as multiple donkeys, literally trying to come through the door! The food was brilliant, especially the infamous steak pie, as was the choice of food and drinks. Everything was very reasonably priced too. We will definitely be going back, in fact, it will probably be our new local ! A great outdoor playground is available in the pub grounds to occupy the kids too.
