About the Pub

Originally known as 'Furlong House' since the property was built a distance of One Furlong from the Manor House on the Morant estate. In 1746 the property was listed as a common inn known as 'The Queens Head'. At the turn of the 19th century the property became a family home and remained so until 1978, when the House again became an Inn known as it is today 'The Inn on The Furlong'. The building sits conveniently between the bus station and the town centre, making it an ideal meeting place.

The main bar has several rooms leading off including a family area and conservatory, where children are allowed. The pub opens from 9.30am (10am on Sunday) for breakfast, and a good range of food is served throughout the day by friendly and helpful staff through until 8pm.

A Marston's pub leased out and as of November 2019 free, or partially, free of tie, though Ringwood Brewery beers still feature. Live music features on Saturday evenings, and sporting events are shown on two TV screens, one of which is sited in one of the three outside patio areas. Dogs are permitted, but not in dining areas. There is a games room, but only for use by 'games club' members.

Historic Interest
