I was upset that I had wait for 2 hours before I was allowed to check in. This is not a hotel, but rather a pub with a few rooms attached, which keeps pub hours. I phoned and left a message on their answerphone; a week later I am still waiting for a reply. The room I was eventually allocated...

You have hit the nail on the head: "This is not a hotel, but rather a pub with a few rooms attached, which keeps pub hours. ". Nowhere on our web site or in the email sent to you when you booked do we say we are a hotel, hence the hours we keep, which are also on the web...

Stayed for 4 nights this week while fishing. A proper pub with something different every night. Room was ideal for me and really quiet set behind the pub. Ate in 3 nights and good and different each night - the Thai was excellent even if too much to finish. Very friendly and helpful and froze my fish for me even...

It was lovely having you stay with us. I think that's one of the reasons people like us, because the rooms are not over the pub so nice and quiet. I was tempted to keep some of those fish; they looked very impressive. Hope they tasted as good as they looked!

Booked the Augustus John for a nurse while working down in Fordingbridge. Great location! Close to amenities. Clean room and great food! My company will continue to use this accommodation in the future.

I visited the Augustus John 14 years ago and remembered it was a lovely location to see the New Forest...unusually my memory served me well. The rooms are small but what do you expect from converted stables?! They have everything you need, including a sweet treat and decent coffee!!! I'd recommend eating at the pub, the food is superb and...

Ideal location to cover the new forest with its attractions. A peaceful and quiet spot, with good entertainment, good food and drink and comfortable accommodation. Plenty of parking places and the landlord and his staff were friendly and helpful.

My fiancé and I stayed here overnight for a small trip to the New Forest, the room was fairly small but still comfortable, the bed sheets were lovely and soft and the room warm. It was nice to have tea and coffee in the room as well as the little mini muffin type treat. The wifi didn't work at all...

Enjoyed our night at the Augustus John. Handy car park right next to the rooms. Rooms were perfectly adequate. Very clean, warm and cosy. We had chosen this place as it was dog friendly, there were no lingering dog smells either! Rooms were small but had everything we needed. A nice touch was the cafetiere, coffee, tea and the best...

Stayed here last year, unfortunately the photos above are very misleading, it is in the middle of a housing/industrial estate, and you would have no idea you were in the New Forest, which is very disappointing. The bedrooms are very old and dated, and the whole place seems a bit cheap and rough, I would never go back. However the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated between between Sandleheath and Fordingbridge - a riverside town on the edge of The New Forest. You can walk to the town from the pub in about 10 minutes. The old railway line is at the end of the road and leads to many more walks, bluebell woods and open countryside. Salisbury is about 12 miles away to the north whilst Bournemouth and The Jurassic Coast are an easy drive away.Slightly quirky interior with an eclectic mix of stuff on the walls, a fireplace and a screen showing old black and white movies. The food is amazing. Our chef, Scott Bennett, was a head chef at Carey's Manor in Brockenhurst and has devised the most wonderful menu using seasonal produce from The New Forest and surrounds. It is a constantly changing feast so contact us or see our web site to see what we are serving. ... more   less
