Now re-named as "The Three Legged Cross" with the three legs of the Isle of Man symbol on its sign. Still a Mitchells & Butlers chain pub, with nothing to distinguish it: everything is mass-produced (even such things as the "wild boar and chorizo burger"). Only visit if you like that sort of thing: it's about as individual as an M&S sandwich.

We visited for lunch on 22nd Feb. The beer (Ringwood Ale) was wonderful. However, we were not so enamoured of the food. My husband had the Hunter Chicken with BBQ sauce. The chicken was OK, but had no flavour apart from adding BBQ sauce, but the chips were pale and undercooked. I had the Seafood Pie. This had a portion of white fish, some tiny dices of what could have been tuna (tough) and four prawns (which were good). There was no seasoning in the dish and the cheese topping was negligible. This was served with runner beans and carrots. The runner beans were not cooked for long enough. Did not care for the earthenware pot in which this dish was served, as it looked as if it had many servings of baked on food round the edges. Nothing wrong with the ingredients - but please - do serve chips well cooked, coloured and crispy and perhaps your fish pies would benefit from the inclusion of say smoked haddock.

My partner and I visited this pub for a lunchtime meal and decided to go for the specials deal which priced the starters and dessets at 2 each.
We chose the smoked mackerel fillet and the breaded mushrooms, shepherds pie and profiteroles and chocolate brownie.
The starters were OK, nothing special and easy to prepare with a microwave! but nevertheless acceptable.
The shepherds pies were truly awful, mine was mostly potato. When I complained the waitress offered to get me another but I declined her offer but she did bring a small dish with further filling in it. The amount of actual lamb mince present in the filling was an eye opener.
They would have been able to produce 24 'pies' with a 1lb of mince by my reckoning. The filling was mostly a gloopy gravy with pieces of carrot, tomato and onion.
The desserts were OK, again nothing special.
I cannot recommend this pub for it's food, one meal there was quite enough for me.

A frequent user of this pub over the years, I despaired on Friday night when finally they lost my custom. A very varied menu, so lets try sole, "off" monkfish "off" mixed grill? "off" we finally settled for steak and a veggie dish for my wife. In fairness, my wife's meal was fine, but mine was appalling, poor service too.

Onto the drink, well we ordered a bottle of Chilean vin de pays, not cheap at 13.00 a bottle and not good value either, neither was the pint of bitter which I struggled to drink as like the wine it was warm and insipid.

At least the staff were friendly and kept on trying to get us to enter the quiz, which when we finally persuaded them that we really didn't want to play, they piped through to us via the loudspeaker system. Fell sad moaning about this pub, but it has slowly gone down the pan and its only hope is that it will pick up in the summer when the grockles come in, otherwise another Dorset pub is likely to close.

Avoid unless you have to go in.
