The Lamb Inn, Nomansland

Unfortunately I must agree with most of the other comments.
We drove from Christchurch via Cadnam for a beer in the Cuckoo at Hamptworth last week and as the Cuckoo does not serve food in the evening during the week we called in to the Lamb for a bite.
The pub was not busy but the young lady behind the bar did not have the manners to look at us let alone speak to us when I ordered our drinks ( perhaps because we are three old codgers in our late fifties and beneath her radar) and the landlord - who was chatting to one of his mates - looked at us - straight through us and he, also, failed to acknowledge us at all.
The food and beer were fine and the young waitress at the table was a sweetie.
However, in my book, if the landlord's indifferent or worse attitude is to be perpetuated by his bar staff then the Lamb is a fail.
I run a retail shop and it is the first objective of my staff to meet customers in the eye with a welcome or they can find employment elsewhere.
Whilst I recognise that this behaviour is not unusual in pubs run by management and disenchanted staff, this guy is surely running his own pub?
Perhaps he cleaned up in summer with the holiday trade.
We certainly won't be calling in again.
Have not left a rating as I don't rate the Lamb at all.
Never mind, we proceeded to the Cuckoo where as ever the welcome was warm and the beer excellent.
