Some people are under the mistaken belief that this is a free house, however, it is owned and operated by Enterprise Inns.

We visited on a Tuesday evening when the place was almost empty. Extremely bright lights in the bar area (do they have a free source of electricity?) and not much atmosphere. Staff polite enough.

The choice of beer is quite poor: just Timothy Taylor Landlord and Ringwood Best. The Landlord is just about acceptable, but doesn't really have a lot of taste - Ringwood best is boring, watery, weak and tasteless. Enterprise Inns need to scrap Ringwood and allow more guest beers: the pub will get more customers if it gets a reputation for its ales.

Reopened once again (May 12) so went in for a look. Only two beers on, Ringwood and Taylors Landlord which were well kept. Another decor change inside, very neutral , very clean. Absolutely no atmosphere and quite inappropriate for a an inn of such age. Burger bar menu. Deserted except for a couple of Dutchmen who had probably stumbled in by accident! Hardly recognisable as the bouncing pub of a year ago. Don't bother to unpack lads. you won't be there for long.

Took my good lady there for mid-week dinner last week. Good food & good service all round. Granted, last team will be a tough act to follow but I disagree with the previous review that standards have dropped. Will return soon.

A sudden change of management has occurred. The former team will be a tough act to follow. We went in to give the place the once over and to see if the standards were the same. They are not sadly. Is this the beginning of another decline? Hope not

Now under new management "The Covy" is returning to its roots and welcoming drinkers and regulars, as well as diners.

Myself and three others had a selection of meals and deserts and could find no fault in any, all served with good cheer and beer - Ringwood is slowly getting its beer sorted out, and as the Covy serves straight from the barrel the 49er was as good an example of this once proud beer as I have tasted in a long while and 2.50 Pint say no more , backed up with Best and Timmy Tailors Landlord.

Not so keen on the super wide projector thing I understand the need to show sport n stuff and did stay on to watch the rugby but a smaller telly would be much easier on the eye and viewable from more angles other than being pinned to the back wall wearing UV protection.

Gratis bowls of peanuts/snacks are well appreciated and certainly prised a few more beers from the barrel as a result - Nice
