Food & Drink

Home to a large restaurant that promises both high-quality and great-value food, The Carpenters Arms is one of the best places to lunch in the New Forest.

The emphasis here is on traditional home-cooking, with dishes freshly prepared from fine seasonal ingredients. We’ve got a large main menu to choose from, plus a specials board that offers new and exciting creations every day.

There’s a special kids menu too, making this a great place to feed the whole family.

If you’re just with us for a quick drink, be sure to try one of our wonderfully well-kept cask ales - we’ve won awards for our cellarmanship. Alternatively, there’s a large range of draught lagers and fine wines to sample.
Whatever your favourite tipple, you’ll find the glass very much half full here at The Carpenters Arms.
