Profile information

Live in the New forest. I enjoy eating out in pubs. Usually look in the AA pub guide if I'm going out and about and try their recommendations.

I'm a real-ale man but will drink tramp-fuel (lager) if I'm in the mood and they have a decent European one (by that, I mean one I've drunk in one of the 35 or so European countries I've drunk beer in)

I usually drink wine though, as I tend to only go to pubs to eat.

In the last 25 or so years, I've probably visited the majority of pubs in the forest but recognise that they've changed hands lots over that time, so try not to comment about those I've not visited in a while.

My views will reflect my overall opinion of my visit.

The Olive Branch, Wimborne

Great pub. Always busy, always friendly. Good selection of well-kept beers, excellent food and wines in a pleasant location.

The tables aren't too close together and the whole place has a homely, rambling feel to it.

The pub car park gets tight but there's a car-park off Crown Mead beyond the River Allen which runs along one boundary of the garden.

Dog friendly, child friendly, large canopies in the garden with heaters, so it's possible to sit out in Autumn.

Best to book if you want to go Friday through Sunday. I've booked for Christmas already.

The Lambs Green Inn, Wimborne

Went back again on the 30th of January 2010 (I've been a few of times in between that visit and the visit in March, probably about 5 visits in 2009)

Great food, a really good beef, mushroom and Guinness pie. Very nice scampi, fantastic open chicken pie. Dunno if the kitchen is doing pre-prepared meals or cooking to order but it's all very good.

Tonic water in G&T was fizzy, Sharp's Doombar was very well presented and the wine was declared good too.

Service with a smile. This pub has the same faces as a year ago. Same manager, same bar staff and same waiting staff. They are friendly without exception. It's dog friendly to boot and it's good value for money.

Well worth a 9. Great example of what a chain pub can do, when it's run properly.

The Star Inn, Ringwood

Nice pub. Beer good, wine good, food good. Service with a smile, not a long wait and it's cosy as well. Loos are clean.

Not a pub to take the kids but there's The Fish Inn down the road for them.
