“Seasonality, locality, quality and sustainability

The four key points that make up our food philosophy”


A word from our chef…

 Here in the heart of the New Forest, we are lucky to have amazing produce on our front doorstep. I like to take the best of what’s on offer, and use the quality of the food to speak for itself. I draw inspiration from classic dishes to construct my menu whilst producing food that is fresh, fun and modern. I aim to keep the dining experience exciting and stimulating, not only for the customers but also the chefs cooking the dishes. I believe my passion, and that of my team, is present in the food and enhances the enjoyment of eating it.

I aim to please. If there’s something you would like that’s not on the menu, please ask and we will do our best.

Andy Smith Head Chef



Wine List

The owner Robert spends a lot of time working on our wine list with local wine Supplier Elegant Wines to achieve the perfect balance between ‘personality and pair-ability’ to ensure that they go perfectly with our restaurant menu.

Delight in a

Light bite

Let’s do lunch! We serve a light bites menu all day until 6pm. All of our meals are freshly prepared in the kitchen and is the perfect complement to a busy day in the New Forest.



Sunday Lunch

Succumb to the pleasure of a traditional Sunday lunch. The menu changes weekly, but, always full of reassuringly heart-warming dishes.


Keeping it local

We try and buy local New Forest and seasonal produce as much as possible. We are also part of the New Forest Marque. It is very important to us to use New Forest Marque produce not only as it is great quality, looks and tastes delicious, but, to support our local economy and New Forest producers and help reduce the impact that food production has on the environment.

We have our own Vegetable and herb patches. We have transformed some of the neglected and overgrown plots at the back of the garden and transformed it into an area that provides us with potatoes, tomatos, leeks, garlic, peppers, salad leaves and courgettes throughout the Summer. Our herb garden is located outside the restaurant window and it provides all the herbs we need for the restaurant and cocktails!
