Welcome to The Bell Inn, which has been part of my family since 1782. Inside we have made stylish updates to our historic New Forest hotel without spoiling any of its traditional and rustic charm. With open fireplaces, flagstone floors, elegant reception rooms and two superb 18-hole golf courses we are unlike other hotels in Hampshire. With nature’s larder on the doorstep our team of talented chefs create seasonal specials, mouth-watering menus, and have unique access to game from our family’s New Forest estate – a true ‘Estate to Plate’ dining experience. Whether staying in one of our 28 tasteful rooms, enjoying local ale whilst relaxing on comfortable sofas in our dog friendly bar, dining with us exploring the flavours of the New Forest or playing a round of golf on our New Forest Hotel's oldest course, we look forward to welcoming you to this timeless and magical place.

We have just had a wedding at The Bell Inn, and It was the most fantastic day. The atmosphere was so homely and welcoming, with friendly and happy staff. The food was outstanding, with the evening buffet large enough to feed double the number of guests. The whole day was

Had an overnight stay as part of a cycle holiday in the New Forest. The Bell Inn was a delight in every way possible. Nice rooms, nice restaurant, nice people and a great location. Will probably go back there next time we go cycling in the New Forest.

Our dog joined us and she was treated just as well as we were. She had a blanket, bag of treats, and food bowl waiting for her in the room when we arrived and was given lots of love in the pub. The room was perfect for us as well. Very clean, cozy, and stylish. Beautiful

Hmmm that’s a difficult question to answer, I would suggest giving them a quick call, as they would be able to give the true and reliable answer. Good luck, (and by the way; in my opinion this venue is absolutely amazing in many ways).
