Best Places For Breakfast In The New Forest


It’s more than a mere cliché – breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Sophie Dahl once said ‘there is nothing better than a proper breakfast’, and we tend to agree with her.

Whatever your day has in store, start it the right way. Whether you’re hiking through the New Forest, cycling or exploring quaint villages, you’ll enjoy it far more if you’re not hungry.

Happily the New Forest Collection has the best breakfast in the New Forest covered – wherever you are. Choose from Burley Manor, The Drift, 1820 at Forest Lodge, Bartley Lodge, Moorhill House or Beaulieu Inn, and all guarantee a warm welcome and a proper breakfast. We hope Ms Dahl would approve…

Seasonal and sustainable


Breakfast at Burley Manor means a menu with something for everyone and packed with locally sourced ingredients, such as glorious New Forest honey.

Whether it’s white bloomer toast and local preserves; cold smoked trout, scrambled eggs and watercress; or the Burley breakfast (smoked streaky & back bacon, pork sausage, morcilla, herb-crusted plum tomato, roasted mushroom, Ben’s potato cake and free range eggs cooked to your liking), there’s bound to be something to satisfy all tastes and appetites.

Catch my Drift?


You’ll never leave hungry from The Drift breakfast spread; take your choice of tea or coffee, toast and all you can eat from the kitchen table – charcuterie and Hampshire cheeses; yoghurts, pastries, cereals, porridge and a selection of juices. There’s also a full English breakfast, three egg omelettes, buttermilk pancakes and breakfast specials to tempt you further. Younger guests even have their own menu with the Mini Rambler’s Breakfast – pancakes or a mini cooked breakfast. Delicious and surely one of the best breakfasts in New Forest..

Breakfast at 1820


No, that’s not the time it’s served, but the name of Forest Lodge’s award-winning grill and brasserie, where breakfast is always something rather special. Whether it’s the kitchen table and its selection of juices, cereals, toasts, pastries and yoghurts, or something from the kitchen (eggs your way; breakfast brioche; buttermilk pancakes; or the 1820 cooked breakfast), you can be assured of fresh, quality ingredients cooked to perfection. This is the place to go if you are looking for the best breakfast in Lyndhurst.

Breakfast at Bartley Lodge


Stuck on where to go for breakfast in the New Forest? Bartley Lodge takes some beating – from pastries, cereals, toast and juices to large plates such as breakfast brioche, buttermilk pancakes or a New Forest cooked breakfast, there’s no lack of choice. In a hurry? Then grab and go – pre-order night before, and take your choice of a breakfast brioche – bacon, sausage, free-range egg, or all-in-one, fresh fruit, Danish pastry, nutritious cereal bar, Mozzo filter coffee or Birchall Tea, and an orange juice to take away. Younger guests are catered for too with the Children’s box; your choice of breakfast brioche – bacon, sausage, free-range egg, or all-in-one, nutritious cereal bar, orange juice to take away.
