Christmas Lunch

An unforgettable Christmas begins with New Forest Hotels and you don’t have to be a hotel resident to spend Christmas day with us. Non-residents are welcome at all four of our New Forest Hotels for Christmas Day lunch.

Our award winning chefs have created a delicious Christmas menu using the very best, local ingredients from our New Forest neighbours. That's why Christmas at any of our four New Forest Hotels is always so special!

We have a selection of beautiful starters, traditional and less traditional main courses and a tasty choice of desserts. There are mince pies too, of course.

Come and enjoy Christmas Lunch with New Forest Hotels. To book call our friendly reservations team on 0800 44 44 41.
