The Hotel has two wonderful public seating areas that are ideal for relaxing, meeting with friends, enjoying a delicious pint of our local ale or having a wonderful meal or snack. Enjoy a log burning stove in the winter and views of the New Forest from the terrace in the warmer months.
With its mix of tables for dining, sofas and comfortable chairs, the lounge is a centre of activity at the Hotel. With three large parasols providing shade, cricket matches on the Balmer Lawn and lots of chairs and sofa, the terrace is a wonderful summer destination.
We are home to our own micro-brewery! Brockenhurst brewery is based on the grounds and a wonderful traditional cask bitter, Smokin Deer is a must for real ale enthusiasts. Enjoy a wide range of spirits, wines, lagers and beers or ask our team to mix you a cocktail.
We are proud to offer a delicious lounge and terrace menu with its innovative dishes including a magnificent Afternoon Tea. Do leave room for dessert. This menu is available from 12pm to 9pm
The Lounge is busy whatever the season and we always recommend that you make a reservation should you wish to dine with us. The warmer months ensure that the terrace is always busy and again, reservations are essential.
