We had lunch with a friend after a trip to Christchurch Museum. What a delightful pub and restaurant. Very friendly atmosphere and clearly a popular local meeting place. The food was excellent. My husband had a truly great double crusts meat pie. Finding this place...More

This pub has charm, but a bit of TLC wouldn't go amiss. Centrally located bar serving three areas can become a little chaotic at busy times. Large beer garden at the front again could do with some TLC.

We've been here and eaten dozens of times over the past couple of years and it's always been excellent. Great food, beers and service. There's a good standard menu with a varied and changing set of specials.
