    The Waitress was very unfriendly and didn’t smile until coffee. The Manager was a little unhelpful, had been asked to pre order even though we were only 1 of 2 tables. Someone wanted to order a starter who hadn’t and it seemed a hassle even though it was more money for the pub. Service non existent, poured our own drinks and set the table ourselves as decided to move outside as we would have been alone in a dark unappealing Dinning room. Shame as food was very good. Would not go again or recommend and we were 8 local ladies with money.

    Food a bit pricey for what it was. My tuna steak was supposed to be with salad nicoise, but it was served with hot green beans and a lot of hot olives, with just a very few hot cherry tomatoes and potato pieces. It was a bit of an odd dish, it wasn't a salad nicoise as described, and I wouldn't have it again. There was no lemon with it which would've been nice with fish, and we were not offered salt and pepper or any sauces. There was piped music in the garden, which wasn't loud, but it wasn't necessary and would have preferred it not to have been on. On the plus side the food was served very quickly, and everything was nice and clean inside and out.

    Have been before in the winter so wanted to sit in the lovely garden as weather was sunny. Unfortunately there was a small of sewerage that wafted around, not pleasant when eating. Food was better on our previous visit. I had a roasted allotment salad that appeared to have vegetables that were barely roasted and for £13.50 was disappointing. The chicken schnitzel was over cooked so a bit tough and the salad had been over dressed so that dressing was under the schnitzel so no longer crunchy. Best value dish was the chicken burger. We will not rush back sadly.

    Great dinner and drinks. The food was fantastic! The Sticky Beef Salad was the perfect amount of spice and flavour. And the Double Burger was perfect as were the skinny fries. Not to mention my first ever Espresso Martini. It was the perfect amount of busy int he restaurant with attentive service. The Bar was quieter but we had the choice of where to sit on a Friday night. Would highly recommend.

    A limited menu but decied on crab rarebit and trout with garlic prawns. I usually get bored with my food halfway through but every mouthful was delicious. No fancy additions just excellent food. The service was friendly and enthusiastic without being pretentious. A memorable meal.

    Bank Holiday Monday was finished off with an excellent meal and first class service. Wild Mushroom starter was heaven, full of flavour and topped with parmesan Followed by pan fried trout topped with prawns with broccoli and potatoes. Cooked perfectly and presented beautifully. Too full for a pudding. Excellent value at £30 each including drinks. Will be frequent returners and would highly recommend.

    We arrived to be told that the Filly Did NOT take bookings in the bar. We had booked through your website. We pushed 2 small round tables together and was told the waitress would return to the wipe them, she didn't. Orders are at the bar, also unwiped, the water was brought from the restaurant and then I had to ask for glasses!! The bottle of wine and glasses were delivered to the table. The whole place is disorganised. The young people are personable but no-one seemed in charge. Our second bottle of wine was simply left on the bar and when I went to collect it, there was a grudging apology. It needs routines that work and someone in charge. They had sold out of their chicken dishes, so choice was limited. I've been before, eaten the chicken schnitzel, thoroughly enjoyed it and sat outside in the sun. It will have to be a sunny day before I'm tempted to go again!

    We went to The Filly Inn for roast dinners. It was delicious, nice tender meat, and the gravy was very flavourful. We had brownies and fruit crumble for dessert which was also very good. We are looking forward to returning to try more of their offerings. Staff were all very friendly and courteous as well.

    Amazing food, service was also great. Not been to such a good restraunt/pub in so many years. Reasonably priced also. A must visit. We only went as right next door to our airbnb, and ended up going each night of our stay for drinks. Had dinner one evening, and could have easily gone back for other nights for meals, as such a good choice on the menu. Staff went above and beyond to make sure everything was ok, and were simply amazing. On our next trip to the New Forest we will definently becoming back and have already recommended to friends and family for when their next in that area.

    Food nice, a bit disappointed with the time it took for the vegetables to arrive after the main. Meat was going cold. Also on more than one occasion the manager or the chef telling his staff off publicly which wasn't very professional. Shouting loudly whilst people were eating!!!!

    So disappointed. Food came cold and poor quality. Staff looked baffled, when I took the plates back. I ordered drinks and the Sunday roasts at the bar, before I got back to my seat, the dinner was on the table, obviously not freshly cooked. Our friends waited half an hour to get their burgers which were freshly cooked. Half of the meet was fatty. Gordon Ramsey needs to shake/shape the place up!
