Welcome to The Forest Home

The Forest Home is a family run cosy bar and restaurant on the edge of The New Forest.  Our kitchen prides itself in serving fresh home cooked food from all locally sourced ingredients, many of our vegetable and salad ingredients are grown in our own allotment behind the premises. We have a picturesque outdoor seating area, with an newly refurbished extensive children's play area and seasonal bouncy castle. A glowing wood burning stove and comfortable sofa seating area welcomes our customers on the colder, wintery days.

We provide a weekly quiz evening, meat draw on Friday & Sunday and live music by local musicians on various weekends. We are very dog friendly, we even have our own pub dog 'Monty' and sell local homemade doggy treats at the bar!


We hold 5* Cask Marque for our three Ales and The 2015 Award of Excellence from Trip Advisor.

We sit just on the side of Hardley roundabout between Dibden Purlieu and Holbury. We have plenty of parking around the front and back. For more information in our location check out our Find Us section.

Aileen, Monty and all the staff hope to welcome you very soon!
