After a long day out in the Forest or working away, there’s nothing better than winding down over a cold beer or wine and delicious, easy-to-eat food that’s cooked to perfection and served in sophisticated surroundings.

You’ll find all this in our award-winning 1820 Grill and Brasserie where prime, hand-cut steaks, farmed in the Wessex countryside and aged for 28 days take centre stage on our menu.

Alongside these are a mix of mouthwatering modern brasserie classics.

Our lunches are just as legendary and our breakfasts – served in our sun-filled Forest Room - are as grand.

We’re also proud purveyors of the finest Afternoon Tea, the best way we know to treat someone you love or to catch up with friends after a day’s shopping.

Whatever and whenever you want to eat, Forest Lodge Hotel’s chefs will help you to discover just why the New Forest is one of the UK’s top foodie destinations.

Start as you mean to go on, with a glass or two of something wonderful in the intimacy of our 1820 Bar or in our cosy lounge. Then choose from a menu featuring all the best brasserie classics, before stepping into our 1820 Grill and Brasserie to savour our flawlessly presented, award-winning dishes.
