With saddlebags full of charm and original features, The Drift Inn in Hampshire is set within the vast open heathland surrounded by national parks. Taking residency in former stables, the inn pays homage to its former use through its carefully-selected décor, complete with timber frames and open log fires.

Keen supporters of local produce, the Drift Inn menu offers a plethora of classic pub dishes, including Ringwood ale-battered fish and chips, and chargrilled bubble and squeak burger, served with coleslaw and chips. Jam-packed doorstep sandwiches include bacon, brie and cranberry, while ploughman’s platters include honey roast ham and pate with local ale chutney and fresh, crusty bread.

Quirky décor completes the dining space, including mis-matched furniture and reclaimed tables. Exposed brickwork, horse-printed wallpaper and steel low-level lighting adds to the kitsch and cool vibe.

A quirky and quintessentially British countryside eatery, The Drift Inn in Brockenhurst sits 1 minutes’ walk from Beaulieu train station.

    Friendly local pub food. We had a good but not special scotch egg and good sourdough bread. Followed by well appreciated pork belly and an underwhelming burger overcooked. Nice location, attentive staff and over all good value.

    A very nice pub style restaurant. We had breakfast and dinner and on both occasions the food was hot, fresh and the service was very good. I didn't like the garden however, just rows of wooden tables, no character, no flowers and lots of ants.

    Very enjoyable visit. Food well presented and well cooked. Good cuisine.
    Had a few problems with flies in the restaurant during meal.
    Will come again

    Food was very good but considering how empty the restaurant was service was extremely slow.

    Well cooked food but very limited menu. No specials to make it a bit more exciting. Glass of white wine was served warm!
