Food & Drinks


Lunch is served 12-3pm

We don’t take bookings so please just turn up and take a table on arrival.  If you have any further enquiry please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Our menu is modest and has been perfected over the last 20 years.

Taking inspiration from our picturesque location in the heart of the New Forest our menu is unique, full of colour and perfect for when you are on the go or want to enjoy a long leisurely afternoon with friends and family.

Specialising in homemade and locally sourced award-winning produce such as our very own handmade pork pies and quiche as well as Lyburn cheese and New Forest smokery trout pate, we offer a variety of fresh ploughman’s style lunches.
