The braised beer chicken and lamb neck lived up to the overall perfection that is The Oak Inn! Having come here a couple of times, this one was as expected: perfect service, timing, and quality of food. This is no ordinary pub, but a perfect...More

Very nice pub. Really good choice of food. Nice outdoor seating available. Quick, effortless service along with really tasty food. This comes at a price unfortunately, though.

A very smart and welcoming traditional pub in a village setting. We debated whether the cycle centre in Brockenhurst owned it as it seemed that everyone cycling from Brockenhurst was going here. The reality, I guess, is that it is such a fab pub with...More

Great food and service, I had the ploughmans and soup which was delicious. Perfect spot to stop on the bike ride, as per the ornamental woods circuit from Cycle Experience in Brockenhurst.

Dear Debbie A, Thank you for the nice words. We were happy to serve you, especially knowing that you cycled all the way from Brockenhurst. We hope the ride back was easier, as we keep reminding people that the road back is going slightly downhill...!
