We've been here lots of times but last two Inc this one was poor. We were hoping the last time was a one off but unfortunately not. Yorkshire's no longer seem home made or are hard, beef poor tough quality, veg used to include sweede but plate seems now less, place needs a bit of TLC/paint and clean and although... More

I've been here at least three times; my first visit was in 2004 during a holiday in the New Forest with Chrissie. We were both charmed by the place which seems to appear magically out of nowhere, surrounded by trees and moorland. Inside it was lively and buzzing with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. I had two of the pub's... More

Nice comfy pub in a gorgeous location. Met by log fires and found a cosy spot in the corner. The menu looked good and we were taken by the sausage sandwich with onion relish; sadly although the relish was good the sausage tasted very ordinary and was overcooked. For £6.50 we hoped for a local farm sausage (there are loads... More

Really nice traditional pub food, quick service and in a lovely location. In the summer it's rammed so usually have to wait a little while to be served - but that's not a problem!

A birthday lunch for family....on a freezing cold day...2nd Jan...a restaurant that was as cold on the inside as outside.I appreciate having dogs and walkers an open door is an option....but with no radiators or a roaring log fire ,the place was freezing,and also the food was cold.Most restaurants advertise a warm welcome but certainly not this one!

What a fantastic meal we had here. 8 of us ordered food and 8 completely empty plates were cleared away afterwards, including the kids. The Pork Belly in particular was so well cooked, well presented and so delicious that I cannot wait to return and will tell everyone to go here. Muddy dogs were catered for with bowls of water...

I had booked a table for a group for lunch at the Red shoot inn. Upon arrival, I went up to the bar so I could report my arrival. I stood by the cash till which bar maids were using and a couple of them had seen me, but they did not acknowledge me and were busy serving other customers.... More

Friendly, very well organised and superb service. We very much enjoyed our Christmas lunch, thank you. We started with mushrooms on toast (me) and smoked trout (him). Both superb. Mains.. Turkey with great veg and gravy. Oh, forgot to mention the sorbet after the starter, most welcome surprise. Great puds and cheeseciurse. All in all would highly recommend. Thank you... More

Came as a group for lunch after we had a short walk close by. Glad we booked as it was very busy! Ordered at the bar, we all had roast dinner and can say it was very nice. Good little find!

We enjoyed lunch here a couple of month ago. It was in the week so very quiet, but I am sure it is a lot busier at the weekend. Good choice of menu for us, as we do not eat meat.

Thank Sheelagh B
