Drinking at The Bell Inn
Welcome to one of the most loved pubs in the New Forest
Our family-run New Forest pub is renowned for its warm welcome and vast offering of beverage. Not only do we serve up fresh, local dishes daily but we also have a drink for every fancy. If you know your Pinot Noir from your Merlot and your Sauvignon blanc from your Pinot Grigio, then we have a lovely selection of wines for you to explore. Not so much a wine connoisseur? No problem. Our team can help you select a bottle to suit any meal and for whatever occasion.
If gin is more your thing then we have the majority of flavour profiles covered (we are always adding new bottles!) Not feeling an alcoholic beverage? For those wishing to enjoy a flat white overlooking our beautiful garden or a jasmine tea in front of the open fire, you’re more than welcome to do so – we have a fine selection of teas and coffees that you can choose from. Whatever your tipple of choice, we’ve got the perfect thing to whet your whistle at our New Forest pub.
The New Forest has a great tradition for fine pubs and inns, but if you’re looking for pubs in the New Forest with fantastic food, great drinks, comfortable rooms and service which is second-to-none, you’ll be hard pushed to find somewhere better than our family-run inn. In fact, The Bell Inn has been run by the same family, the Crosthwaite Eyres, for more than 200 years. So if anyone has perfected the art of creating the perfect pub in the New Forest, we like to think it’s us!
