We had a lovely day out in beaulieu motor museum and fancied a carvery we used the TripAdvisor app to find a good one nearby. We have to admit it was gorgeous food and a lovely local pub.

This is a Pub more for locals. It was ok and nothing wrong but for an evening drink not for me this time of the year when you really have to drink inside. When weather warmer and can drink outside this is good place to go.

Back in Lyndhurst and back for lunch in the Mailmans. How could I not? Food as always, is excellent and the family who run it are lovely. A real jewel in Lyndhurst's crown.

We'd heard good reviews about the roast offered at this pub so gave it a try. I think our mistake was going later in the afternoon, 430, as the carvery was closed shortly after we were served. The range of meat and vegetables was excellent but the potatoes were not fresh, having presumably sat there for some time they were... More

No bad food and really well priced. A Calvery roast for 3 adults and a child with a jug of Pimms for £43. Reall not bad at all. They are not mean on the meat too. The server was happy to give me some of all the meats on offer. Veg was good and service was fine too.
