A New Forest Restaurant Through And Through

We all love food and, as a local friendly Inn who likes to welcome guests like an old friend, feeding you with good, honest food is what we do best in cosy our New Forest restaurant.

Whether it’s a quick pint and a homemade sausage roll, a long lunch with friends or a three-course meal with those special to you, our team are devoted to bringing you dishes with a respectful nod to the season, locally sourced from our lovely farming friends as well as from our own family estates, in the New Forest and Scotland giving a real authenticity to the meaning of ‘estate-to- plate’. It’s a true taste of the forest.

Food is served daily from 12noon -9pm.


Here at The Bell Inn, we offer delicious food, simply prepared, using the freshest locally sourced produce. Enjoy our menu in one of three dining areas to fit your mood! Choose from our relaxed, traditional bar or light and airy Garden Room overlooking our beautiful New Forest Garden to the Oak Room, our quintessentially country farmhouse dining room.

The Bar

At the very heart of our Inn with its quirky corner and inglenook open fireplace, our bar is the perfect plact to sink into a sofa and read our menu with a local ale or fine wine. Our welcome even extends to man’s best friend – we’re very dog-friendly!

In The Garden

You’ll find our large, pretty garden - with views of the New Forest - a peaceful, lawned escape in which you can relax over a lunchtime drink, a leisurely meal or maybe a long, lazy afternoon with a jug of Pimm’s and a local ale. Relax under a shady parasol or maybe try one of the garden games such as chess or boules in our perfect New Forest countryside garden.
