Pubs in Hampshire

If you're looking for a relaxed, casual ambience with great food and drink, then our traditional Hampshire’s pubs have been welcoming visitors for centuries and each offers its own unique character and experience.

Warm up besides a glowing open fire and perhaps enjoy a pint of local ale in the winter, or take advantage of our relaxing beer gardens and terraces during balmy summer evenings
Many pubs in Hampshire offer delicious home-cooked food and fine local cask ales while others offer beer gardens, a fascinating history or a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
The picturesque villages of the Test Valley and East Hampshire in the Hampshire South Downs are particularly noted for their hidden gems.

Here you’ll find thatched roofs, wooden beams, ancient flagstones, warming fires and bags of character.

A selection of the best pubs in Hampshire
We’ve put together a small selection of traditional Hampshire pubs below, to give you a taster.
Located within the beautiful village of West Meon, The Thomas Lord, with two AA Rosettes, offers outstanding British-sourced food in a cosy, friendly atmosphere.

It is named after the founder of Lord’s cricket ground.
The Hampshire Bowman in Dundridge is a traditional country freehouse serving real ales, real ciders and real food all year round. It has been in the CAMRA good pub guide for over 25 years.
The Mayfly pub at Wherwell has glorious views over the River Test and features a riverside terrace as well as a cosy bar.
The Star at East Tytherley is a traditional country pub tucked away in the heart of the Test Valley. It uses seasonal local produce in its tempting menus.
Try hearty Ploughman’s, quiches and pies at the Royal Oak in Fritham, one of the oldest pubs in the New Forest. It has a working farm and livestock on the doorstep.
The Peat Spade Inn near Longstock sits on the banks of the River Test in the heart of the Hampshire countryside. Its cosy bar and award-winning restaurant use seasonal local produce.
And don't forget the Selborne Arms in sleepy Selborne in East Hampshire, a traditional village pub with real fires, home cooked food and a friendly atmosphere.
A day out with the family needn’t be a nightmare. We have visited pubs across the Hampshire countryside looking for those which offer a warm welcome for children.
We've rated parking, high chairs, entertainments, gardens, menus and baby changing facilities. Out of all those we visited, we have chosen those which we think promise the best all-around experience.

The pubs in Hampshire may not provide organic baby food or free nappies or a basket of toys but they do all offer welcoming touches - which mean that you can relax and enjoy yourself.

And as far as possible, we have selected Hampshire pubs near a tourist attraction or activity in case you want to make a day of it.
