We have had a few meals here now and have always had a good experience. The staff are so friendly and seem to care, the food is always hot and quick to come. The staff work very hard keeping tables clean and serving food. Nice to have a good local pub in chandlers ford. Thank you.

Came at lunchtime and had the southern fried chicken sandwich with fries. Was perfectly fine apart from they could have made it clearer on the menu it was a cold dish. Then had coffee and lemon drizzle cake which was very nice. Service was good very friendly. Definitely worth a visit
