Chris & his Team welcome you to The Bold Forester.  We hope you appreciate the major changes we have introduced to this beautiful traditional pub and restaurant.

As a new addition to Country Inns (which is a local family run business) The Bold Forester offers fresh home cooked food on the premises, lovingly produced by experienced & passionate chefs.  The menu offers dishes created with fresh locally sourced ingredients, where possible,  and offers a range of flavours to appeal to all.

Our other pubs are already famous in The New Forest for their outstanding Roast dinners and The Bold Forester  will be the same.  We have some lovely large tables for families and friends and some cosy tables for 2!!

Situated on the edge of the beautiful New Forest – its central location is ideal for exploring the New Forest with its spectacular scenery and abundance of wild life where ponies, cattle, pigs and deer are free to roam. Nearby are the Cathedral cities of Salisbury. The nearby shopping centre of Southampton, the market town of Lymington and the blue flag beaches of Bournemouth offer access to the world famous sailing waters of the Solent.

Our fully trained attentive staff are here to ensure that your visit is relaxing, fun and enjoyable and that you will return time and time again.

Whether you are popping in for a drink (check out our varied wine list, our real ales, ciders and lagers) or want an evening out dining,  make sure you come and see us, meet the team and let us know what you think.  Oh….. and don’t forget to bring your four legged friend as we also welcome dogs!
