Food & Drink

The perfect pub for lunch or dinner, we offer a delightful menu of locally sourced, home-cooked dishes - including homemade dishes and fabulous fresh fish. Why not try something freshly smoked by Russell, our head chef or from our very own smokery? After a hearty main, you can round off your meal with one our home-made desserts or some delightful Jude's ice cream, hand-made down the road in Winchester. 

As keen supporters of local food our team of chefs create dishes from the freshest seasonal locally sourced produce. Our suppliers include Owls Barn Farm, in Sopley where Ron & Liz produce our fabulous bacon & breakfast sausages along with many other specialties that you will find on our blackboards. This is the best time of year to visit the area and sample a selection of locally sourced game including New Forest venison and pheasant.

Sample some of the New Forest's finest ingredients in our brilliant breakfasts - the ideal way to start a day's exploration following a good nights sleep.

There are many good reasons to celebrate the coming of spring; the brighter, warmer and longer days, gardens beginning to bloom and loads of wonderful, fresh ingredients coming into season.
