Food very good pub grub. Burger and Cottage Pies went down excellently. The Eaton mess was lovely and the twist of sorbet in the bottom of the dish was most refreshing. Lovely atmosphere and very welcoming.

A beautiful thatched Inn to visit for food and drink in moderation if you can avoid temptation! Ideally located on the A338 between Ringwood and Fordingbridge to traverse the New Forest Villages and enjoy the adorable wildlife.

Unfortunately The Old Beams has been closed down by the owners. Another loss to the community it was very good lately. We live in hope that it will reopen!
