WOW... What a shocking attitude the landlord has! We visited the pub on the 26th October to have some lunch, nice spot, plenty of parking so thought why not! We left wondering why we bothered, after ordering our meal and drinks I thought it would be ok to get a bit of charge on the phone, by this point our six year old was playing on the phone whilst charging. The landlord took it upon herself to verbally attack our six year old by demanding she unplugged the phone (bearing in mind, we were sitting next to her), she then decided to shout that we should pay a £2 donation for the charge. I don't have a problem with the donation but I do have a problem with the way she feels she can attack people, what could she possibly think our six year old is going to respond, perhaps an intensive course in customer service, something along the lines of 'would you mind donating £2 for the use of the electric'!! Swiftly after the attack, we decided to cancel our food order and leave. From the below reviews it appears we had a lucky escape as the food doesn't have great reviews and is at the higher end of the scale for pub food prices. To make this a fair post, I have to say that the remainder of the staff were good to deal with and it is lucky you have not taken a leaf out of your employers book.

Called in with my wife a couple of weeks ago, having spent a week in the Forest and tried several local hostelries. Nice selection of local ales and a decent looking menu. We both had trouble finishing our meals as the portion sizes were extremely generous. Service was fairly quick and friendly. Certainly worth a visit if you are eating. If just drinking , not so sure.

We happened upon this pub whilst walking the dogs in the new forest, only a 10 minute walk from the Sandy Balls holiday park. We couldn't have felt more welcomed. They didn't care about our muddy boots and invited us and our dogs to sit in front of the real fire.
The pub felt cosy, the staff were informative and friendly.
There was a large choice of local ales and ciders, I sunk a few Thatchers Cheddar Valley which was maybe not such a good idea at 6%!!
The menu looked fantastic, and if we didn't have a casserole bubbling away in the slow cooker on the Motorhome we would have eaten there.
All the meat is local, the owner is a master butcher and the food very reasonably priced.
We are returning in March and I am already thinking about his homemade faggots!!
Our dogs were treated better than us, given water and treats from the bar and fussed over by the bar staff. Bonnie and Buster can't wait to go back.
I would recommend this venue for anyone out walking in this beautiful countryside, don't mind the ponies and cows looking through the window at you either!!

I visited this pub whilst staying at the local holiday park, Sandy Balls as it was a convenient � mile away � an easy pram pushing distance! Four ales on when I visited: Ringwood Best and Hobgoblin were both well kept and went down a treat. It�s a nice pub that makes the most of its location: As I was with the family, the play area and decent garden (plus a stream of visiting ponies) were welcome. The setting of the Fighting Cocks is certainly a strong point.

I didn�t see the specials board until it was too late � having said that, I can�t really fault what I�d ordered though as it was tasty, arrived quickly and was hot. Pretty much what I look for in a pub meal! The prices were pretty much on a par with what I�d pay in Surrey so getting towards �4.00 a pint and �10 ish for a standard main meal. I visited several times over the course of my stay and would certainly return if in the area again.

A welcome refuge after a country walk in freezing weather. A warm welcome from friendly and efficient staff, good beer and food excellent for both quality and value. Don't take too much notice of the usual suspects on the menu - the specials boards are the real stars. My only real quibble is that of the four ales on tap only one (Ringwoods Best) was local. I was also pleased to see that one of the casserole dishes came with a chunk of bread for the gravy - something which should be encouraged as there are many other dishes that have things too good not to mop up!
