The Drift Inn

About

Open all day, every day, the kitchen team lead by Head Chef, James White, freshly prepare flavoursome home-cooked food that showcases New Forest produce at its best and are proud members of both the New Forest Marque and Hampshire Fare. Expect modern British ‘gastro’ favourites, tempting daily specials and wood-fired pizzas, served from the garden kitchen. 

Set right in the heart of the New Forest, the pub is ideally located for days out rambling, dog walking or cycling and welcomes large groups. Boasting extensive gardens and two outdoor children’s play areas, The Drift Inn is a big attraction for families and dog owners too. 

Whether it’s coffee and a slice of homemade cake, a light lunch from the garden menu, a relaxing drink in the bar or supper in the restaurant, there’s something for everyone. Popular with locals and visitors alike, pre-booking a table is advised.
