So our visit was with 14 family members And was last Sunday, roasts, ribs, homemade burger's, hunters chicken were all first class Tim and the lovely ladies welcomed us and we're very personable. Old hooky ale is worth a try. We will be going back this week for a second visit Excellent

We decided to have lunch at the Fighting Cocks after walking the dog in the New Forest. Being Sunday, the pub was nearly full and had a number of big family groups. We settled down with a drink to what we thought would be a long wait but our food arrived promptly, piping hot and freshly cooked. Lovely! A firm... More

Despite being busy they were as friendly as ever. A little bit of a delay on our food order but that gave us time to catch up with friends and their news. Food was excellent as usual. Looking forward to our next visit

We do live locally and this is a standard tourist pub. Average on all things including food and ambience. Can't take away the position at the edge of the forest and the ponies.

The pub itself was clean and decorated really well to fit in with the surrounding area. There was a great ambience about the place. The... More

A stereotypical ye olde English pub that houses good ale, good food and good staff. My wife and I took my two year old and four month old and got a great reception and the food was great. I was surely tempted by the waffle hedgehog I ordered for my son! Only marked down a star as there's a considerable... More
