Really nice walks into the New Forest from this pub. Ample parking, good value menu and really friendly staff make this pub worth a visit.

My favourite pub for food. I do not have a bad word to say about this pub. I have been going here regularly and have never had a bad meal. Always exceptional and great portion sizes. The homemade Burgers were to die for when Becca Hole was the manager last year but it has now it recently changed. Instead of... More

Often go here for food in the evening as it's really convenient and it's usually good value and enjoyable - last night was not. Had to wait 40 minutes as they had a large group in, which we didn't mind too much as they let us know, but the food must have then been cooked in the overused oil from... More

By prearrangement, we arrived at this lovely pub in our motor home on Valentines day and were allowed to stay overnight there. The pub was doing a Valentines Day special menu and it was made more special by the lovely young lady who served us. Each place setting was decorated with a chocolate rose and the meal included a complementary... More

Eight of us had a lovely evening meal at the Elm on Friday for a friends Birthday, food was good especially the chocolate brownie, staff were very busy running around but still made time for us by keeping our wine glasses full, We will be back and a big thank you to the team.

Had a very nice meal, staff were friendly and attentive. We had our dog with us so worried we might have had to eat outside but the pub is very dog friendly and even have a free dog biscuit jar on the bar (nice touch) it was very nice to go to a pub where it's not ruined by this... More

Visited on Sunday and both had an amazing Sunday beef roast. The meat was tender, the veg fresh, gravy was to die for and to top it off a massive Yorkshire pud. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Will definitely be returning during the week for some of their theme nights!

We popped in here for steak night but found that it had changed to grill night, this was even better than before! There was a choice of 3 different options. I had the sirloin and my partner had the rump and half rack of ribs, which only came to £15.95 for both! I wasn't drinking as I was driving but... More

Myself daughter and 5 year old grandson visited today. We decided to go out for the day on a half term treat and as we were in the area I suggested the Elm tree as in the past have had some lovely meals there. We ordered the two meals for £12 option and a pizza from the kids menu. I... More

budd125, Manager at Elm Tree Inn, responded to this review

Hi Julia Sorry to hear about your disappointing visit. I was very concerned to hear there was no manager as there is always one on shift. Having investigated this, at the time of your complaint they were with another customer taking a function booking for our tithe barn, so apologies they couldn't be with you at that moment. The 2...
