    We were initially disappointed with the noise from the coffee machine close to our table but on request we moved to a quieter place and it was much better . Our roast beef dinners were good. Meat was served pink abd was very tender . The vegetables were freshly cooked. Desserts were also good . Overall a nice meal but service was a little slow and staff looked tired.

    We had a lovely day in the New Forest. We started off with breakfast at the Drift in the waitress was lovely & very helpful with suggestions of walks and the area. We did a lovely walk & returned for lunch we felt totally cared for & the food was delicious.

    It seemed very quiet but service was very slow and particularly the desserts took a long time. We had to ask for them twice. My son's starter was served on the same plate as his main and was missing the mayonnaise dip. There was so much gravy our roasts were overflowing! They didn't remove our main plates and served the desserts next to the main plates. Not great service all in all.

    Mixed experience-staff were nice but we had multiple servers despite low customer numbers, which I feel contributed to some of the issues. We asked for table water which never arrived. One of our group ordered the vegan burger, then was told the bun isn't vegan despite it being listed as a vegan option on the menu. This turned out to be a very basic burger for a £14.50 price tag, just a burger and a bit of onion chutney-even a piece of dairy free cheese would have improved things. We ordered the meat burger too which was far superior in presentation. We ordered dessert, then were told 20mins later that one choice wasn't available. Only two desserts arrived originally, and we had to ask twice for the remaining one. The bill was incorrect twice. The food was nice and the location is great, but the experience was disappointing overall, especially considering this place comes up as one of the top hits on Google amongst multiple New Forest pubs.

    Very short staffed but the staff who were there were excellent. Food was nice but nothing special for the price and had to ask for extra veg and potatoes with my roast dinner (3 roasts , one piece of broccoli and 3 carrot sticks!) Went there for an extra special treat but it was standard for the price. Staff were great though

    Really slow to bring meal to the table, waited 45 minutes after ordering. Pancakes were like they were from the supermarket, the smoked salmon had bones in it, poached eggs were hard, tea was very weak. We were told we could have unlimited cups of tea and coffee with the package, but after giving us our 1st round never came back again to offer more,.

    Unfortunately had to return two different pints of real ale back to the bar . You need to be careful what you are serving you could poison someone. Have been drinking real ale for 40 years and have never tasted anything so bad If you don't know what you are serving you shouldn't be serving it !!!!

    Service was good but did ask 3 times for a jug of water. Waiter kept forgetting. Unfortunately we were seated near people with lots of young children that were very noisy. As the restaurant was empty, May have been nicer to seat us elsewhere. Food was amazing although expensive for portion size.

    Very long wait, food was dreadful - cold hard roast spuds, cold veg, steak pooling lots of blood because wasn't rested and no seasoning. Lots of tables complaining, table next to us refused to eat their 4 mains, ask to speak to the manager, who after 20 mins didn't attend their table, so they left without paying Poor waiting staff were constantly apologising

    Not many main meals to choose from and quite expensive so I had the Fishcake and poached egg starter which was very small but very tasty. My friend had the vegan feta Mud Pie but couldn’t taste the feta unfortunately. Excellent friendly service though.

    I ate a Sunday roast, I don't think I would return, it was expensive for the meal, although it was good and enjoyable. It took us a while to be seated but the service was good after we were seated. I usually enjoy desserts but I disliked the Creme Brulee, which was served cold. Nive atmosphere and we had a good time overall.

    We had a beef roast. They meat was like a shoe insole. The roast veg must have been cooked the day before along with the potatoes. I couldn’t even cut them. The kids meals however, were fab. But £18 for a roast that’s probably up there with one of the worst I’ve ever had. They have us 30% off the bill which was appreciated.

    The service wasn’t great - a team of clearly inexperienced staff who didn’t seem to be given much guidance from management. We had to ask for things a couple of times including water and a knife and fork… Everything I wanted from the menu was sold out even though we went for an early booking. Pretty underwhelming given that it was recommended to us. Nice location though! Went for a lovely walk before and afterwards.

    Family lunch following a lovely walk in the surrounding New Forest. Limited menu - no burgers, hot dogs or various salads. Wedding at the hotel next door apparently had used all these for their bbq-as a private arranged function you would have thought this would have been planned alongside the pub’s requirements. Whilst sat in the bar area a family were complaining about having to wait over an hour for their meal and one of the orders missing. Of the food we ordered we have never seen such poor portions for the prices charged; Salt and Pepper Squid starter £12.50 - 6 nugget pieces of deep fried squid and some salad leaves. Meat Sharing Platter for 2 £24.50 - 3-4 bits of continentals (I think) meat hidden by a bowl of olives, 2 stuffed pepper dews, salad leaves and 2 slices of bread halved. Chicken salad £14.50 - bed of iceberg lettuce with a pale looking chicken breast dumped on top covered in grated cheese. To be honest we were appalled at the poor quality provided for such premium prices. When we asked the bar staff and manager would they be happy receiving it - they replied “no”. Apparently it was down to the chef! Meals were not eaten, refund provided and we left - hungry, sad and shocked about the whole experience.

    Very average food. Menu didn’t describe the food well - for a kids ice cream sundae we were given a scoop of chocolate ice cream (we were not asked for choice of flavor). Roast was fine but not particularly tasty. Kids hated theirs. Very expensive. Had to try hard to get servers attention while they chatted amongst themselves. Very expensive, would not recommend or return.

    On the first night, half our food did not arrive (still charged for, no apology!) - food was placed on the table and the waiter rapidly left - no offer of sauces etc. Drinks all flat. We thought we'd give them a second chance given they had a wedding on at the same time ... what a mistake that was! Arrive, after 15 minutes still no menus ... then told the day menu is being served (no reason given) but that half of it was not available - choice of salad, something with chips or a £30 steak. Another 15 minutes pass ... Not even an offer of a drinks order! Needs a serious overhaul of management and staff attitudes!

    Located in a beautiful location within the New Forest. Service was slow and items missing from menu selection. Staff needed to be reminded of some things missing from order by ourselves and other tables waiting long amounts of times for drinks. When the food eventually arrived the starter was served at the same time as the main but worth the wait, it was very good and full of flavour.

    We were the first there for an early sitting with small children. After ordering it took 10 minutes to tell us no salads were available but everything else we’d ordered was fine. It was a further 15 minutes before they said the other two meals weren’t available either. They failed to bring the advertised colouring for the children despite being asked 4 time. The food took ages to come and when I complained they weren’t apologetic, they just said they were having problems. They brought the childrens included desserts but never even offered a menu to the adults. The plates took so long to clear I nearly did it myself. It was a special birthday meal and it was awful. Complained at length and we were given a 50% discount. Would not recommend at all.

    There wasn’t a lot of choice available due to The Drift having a food delivery issue. I’ve worked in a restaurant before so I can understand this, and so wasn’t too bothered. However, I can’t accept how poor the service was, especially because they didn’t have a lot to get right and there wasn’t a lot of people there for 3 staff members. What was worst though, is the service I received for breakfast the following day. I booked a table at 10AM with the General Manager. When we arrived a young waiter greeted us, explaining in a ‘I’m not bothered tone’ that there isn’t a booking for us and breakfast finishes at 10AM. He said, if we picked our food now and ate it quickly he can fit us in. Excuse me…NO! My partner and I were not happy and left straight away. We were also hotel guests so checked out straight away. Absolutely awful service! What I will say though, the food we did get was very good so kudos to the chef. Front of house staff though…awful!
