About the Pub

The hotel is set back from the A3090, behind a line of mature trees, east of Ampfield. The unusual combination of a modern brick building under an enormous thatched roof plus thatched dormers is immediately appealing. The vast modern bar, very comfortably furnished, occupies most of the front of the hotel. Food is available all day, starting with breakfasts at 10:30, please note that alcohol is not served until 11:30am.

The pub suffered a fire in its thatch 19/03/2018 but thanks to the efforts of about 60 firefighters and modern firebreaks in the building the pub was able to reopen around a week later. However, currently the main bar/restaurant is shut, leaving only the Garden Room at the rear for food/drink. This has only a small bar which means that the usual range of four real ales has been reduced to just Flack Manor Double Drop. Latest estimate for a return to full service is very near the end of 2018.
