Pubs in Hampshire

Hampshire is a perfect blend of picture-postcard villages, vibrant cities, undulating hills, leafy lanes, stunning coastline, and  a rich maritime heritage.

Hills and heaths, forest and downland, rivers and streams, water meadows and woodland, this is rural Hampshire.

With cities like Winchester, Portsmouth and Southampton at your disposal, add to that sports activities, wildlife parks, theme parks, museums, beaches and heritage sites thaRising Sun, Clanfieldt are second to none, a day out in Hampshire could easily become two, three or even four.

Many Great Country Pubs in Hampshire have excellent accommodation that will fullfill all your needs. The Rising Sun in Clanfield is just one such pub that would be more than happy to oblige.

Hampshire’s acres of beautiful scenery are a delight for nature lovers who want to escape to the country. The woods and heaths of the New Forest, where ponies graze through oak-fringed glades, conceal some idylic rural pubs for refreshment or an overnight stop, such as The  Drift Inn and Monty's Inn, both near Beaulieu and both with their sister hotels next door. Or for a lunchtime retreat from the world, seek out The Foresters Arms in Frogham.

Near Romsey, the enchanting George Inn at Dean is a charming building surrounded by countryside offering excellent locally sourced food.

Many beautiful villages nestle in the Test Valley, which is also blessed with an abundance of country pubs that specialise in local produce and offer a friendly place to enjoy real ale and rest your head for the night.
