Tim & Kay Eyre and their friendly team welcome drinkers and diners to a traditional Forest pub where ‘homemade’ means made on the premises.

Tim, the landlord, originally trained as a master butcher and now uses these skills in the kitchen.  He personally cuts all our steaks and makes all our 1/2lb steakburgers and sausages on the premises. We only use local New Forest venison, pheasant, rabbit, etc., in our seasonal game dishes which are prepared by Tim and his team of chefs.

We now sell packs of our homemade sausages and burgers , keep this in mind when you visit us or are just passing by, take a taste of the forest home with you!
