Went in the bar area just inside the main door - large tables meant for sharing with others! The restaurant area was further on, but didn't go there. Had a delicious soup and a pint of Fuggle de Dum which was excellent as it should be at £4.10 a pint. The youthful barman was not up to the task of changing the barrel, the landlady had to do the business and pull the handle numerous times to get the ale flowing - wish I'd counted the number of pulls, looked like a new record. Anyway, the till for food is nearer the restaurant and the young barman asked me to go there to pay for the soup - I demurred, gave him the cash and let him do the walking - wonder if he's learnt to serve customers properly since.

Further to my last review I made a return visit yesterday and the Pub was open and serving Food Everyday from Midday. Large independent pub very similar to a Toby of Harvester. Menu and Food looked good and there seemed to be activites on most days. Large Garden to read with many Tables with umbrellas. Child friendly and two Smoking areas on raised decks. Additional seating in the front but that overlooks the Car Park and Road.Fuggle De Dum was available but I went for the Ringwood Best. Oh Dear! Warm, Flat and NO Lacing. Will give it another shot if in the area again but Better Pubs in Lymington, who Know how to look after the Beers.

Walked past this Pub last week, saw the sign for "Happy Hour" and decided to venture in. unfortunately at 16:20 in the afternoon it was CLOSED, not opening until 17:00. Shame, looked a nice place and as it was a lovely sunny day a Beer in the Garden would have been nice. It is nice they can aford to close in the afternoon and miss out on passing trade. Needless to say I ventured on by and gave my trade to another establisment.

Had dinner here twice during a recent stay in town, stayed elsewhere, our experience was good both times. Food was first class and served promptly. Staff seemed friendly enough and had no problem getting drinks served promptly and although there were yatchy types at the bar (referred to as toffs and lah-di-das here) it is to be expected given location right behind a couple of clubs - but they were not off-putting in any way.

I wonder if the negative reviews have anything to do with the locals. This was our first visit to Lymington and noticed the town has an ageing population. We were told by one of the oldeies that 'the pub was run by young loud aussies, with modern fusion food and was not liked by locals' - this warning before we went to the pub the first time. We only went cos it was the nearest to where we were staying and it was 9pm! Glad we did.

bored with the pretentiousness of the place. Cheap decor, even cheaper staff and the food is awful. It is not rocket science to hold a decent beer but they manage to cock it up big time. Awful now, a good example of how belief in your own PR means that you lose contact with the people that pay the bills.......the customers. Who is that idiotic barman? Is he for real?
