The Fisherman’s Haunt is a stunning pub and hotel just outside the quayside town of Christchurch, Dorset. On the edge of the beautiful New Forest, and adjacent to the River Avon, the hotel offers peaceful views across the Avon Meadow – we’re also close to the south coast seaside.

This historic area is packed with stories of smuggling and hidden treasure – add a great pub, gorgeous views and delicious food, and this really is a special place to eat, sleep and drink.

Eating and drinking

You only need one reason to stay at The Fisherman’s Haunt: our fabulous food. We prepare every dish with the finest seasonal ingredients, locally sourced wherever possible.

Our menu changes with the seasons to keep your dining experience exciting, including British classics and our Chef’s Signature Dishes. As you might expect from our name, we have a strong focus on delicious fresh fish, served all year round. We also offer some hearty sandwiches for a quick but filling bite – just make sure you leave room for our range of homemade desserts.

As well as a passion for food, The Fisherman’s Haunt boasts one of the best-stocked bars in the area. Our outstanding, cask-conditioned ales include Fuller’s London Pride on tap. And if you’d rather enjoy some wine, our exclusive list is sourced from vineyards all over the world. We can even whip up a celebratory cocktail to help you toast those special moments.
