Charming Inn!
Dog friendly Inn, great food, ample portions and cooked with good quality ingredients. Very homely, with friendly helpful staff. Central to villages, towns and forests. Listed building with many original features. Free roaming cattle, horses and ponies on the village green. Not 5 star luxury, but extremely comfortable, non-pretensious, and old fashioned. I thoroughly recommend either staying a few days or pop in for dinner - make sure to book.

Not a bad stay
The rooms are accessed via a separate entrance to the pub. No one from the company is on site at night, only the guests. There is a policy not to leave your children alone in the rooms, due to the lack of staff on site at night we now understand why. Only come here as a family if you're prepared to sleep in a double bed with your child! Quite noisy over the pub until closing, but you expect that. Otherwise very quiet at night. The staff were very friendly, we were lacking a couple of towels on the first night, a member of staff found a temporary replacement. The breakfast was lovely, only marred by a charge for our chosen juice (not mentioned when ordering our breakfast) which has kindly been refunded after an email to the manager. The shower room has an incredibly small basin in room 1, very tricky to scrub teeth in. I understand space constraints but it's tiny. Very hard to fill the kettle for the room. Tea etc was provided. Mattress in room 1 needs replacing as the strings pinged when we moved but the room 2 had a very comfortable mattress. All in all we were happy with our stay. Gorgeous area of the New Forest too.
