Dave Basher, our award winning Head Chef, really embraces all the New Forest has to offer which is apparent in the authenticity of the dishes that he creates – traditional British favourites with a modern twist. Passionate about good quality food, Dave blends local ingredients with heritage flavours to create the best pub food in the New Forest.
Working with local produce means that Dave is constantly making seasonal menu changes to ensure that The Bell stays ahead of the rest as one of the best places to eat in the New Forest. You really will be hard pressed to find fresh flavours and glorious specials to match our menus. So whether you are looking for a light lunch or a 3 course dinner, there will be something on the menu or the Specials’ Board that will tempt you.
Food is served daily between 12pm-3pm and 5.30pm-9pm.
