Outside The Bold Forester in the New Forest


Situated on the edge of the beautiful New Forest and in The National Park.  The restaurant and bar has been totally refurbished after having been sadly neglected for many years.  The decor is now stunning and additional areas have been added to the large interior which include a lovely snug area where you can enjoy morning coffee, afternoon tea or a lunch or dinner with a beer!  There is also an inviting pantry serving bean to cup coffee, or speciality teas with homemade cakes, many Gluten Free!  The refurbished retaurant is cosy and can accommodate large family groups or just a romantic table for two.  Food is served all day and the Sunday Roast offers a choice of three meats and a vegetarian option is available.  The staff are exceptionally friendly and welcoming, offering top class service and the freshly prepared dishes are homemade on the premises by the passionate chefs.  Where possible all the ingredients are sourced locally, and New Forest Jams and Chutneys are also available to purchase.  Children and Dogs are welcome and we have a lovely terrace area for those sunny summer days.  A large garden with benches is just across the substantial car park.
