Just outside Southampton we stopped at this roadside pub on our way to the ferry terminal in Portsmouth. Though on a busy road there is a large car park opposite. Adjoining the bar is a spacious and comfortable dining room. The friendly waitress took our order for dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The desserts are delicious.

After a change of landlord - we gave this another go for an evening meal only. Good menu, if for adult tastes only. Decent table service. A good evening was had by my wife & I and we intend to visit again .

Lovely pub meals . Had a drink on Friday and checked menu. Other half said it was the best salmon she had had. I stuck traditional fish 🐟 and chips these were great as well. Wine reasonably price for a pub. Will be visiting again when staying in area.

We stayed on 24th Feb 2017, and what a great find. We were looking for somewhere to stay at the edge of the New Forest and The Shoe Inn is well placed for the North East side. This pub is under new management (January 2017) so please take no notice of the reviews prior to that date. The new management...

This lovely village pub is under new management, and already some great changes have been made. The dining room is very welcoming with its lovely candles and flowers. Food excellent. We had the Sunday Roast - the beef was cooked to perfection, the accompanying vegetables absolutely delightful. Wishing Andy and Sarah all the best in their new venture - give...

I was travelling for business and booked my room at short notice through Hotel.com, and paid in full in advance. I stayed two nights. On the day I was due to arrive, I received a call asking me not to arrive until after 1800 as the pub would be closed until then. I was asked to pay when I arrived,...
