Drift Inn

Situated between the villages of Lyndhurst and Beaulieu, The Drift Inn has undergone a mini refurbishment. A new snug has now been included to make your experience that little bit more enjoyable, plus an additional rustic fire place and a new kitchen to ensure the best environment for the chef’s to prepare your food!

The pub are proud members of the New Forest Marque; an indication that they help support local food producers, which in turn helps them provide only the best quality food and drink. With a wide variety of choices on the menu including lighter options, inviting daily specials and traditional Sunday roasts, there truly is something for everyone. The passionate chefs have long been serving homemade, cooked to order food and always look forward to creating delicious afternoon teas, lunches and of course their famous trio of desserts.

There is an expression ‘a pub is only as good as its beer’ and the staff at The Drift completely agree! There is a range of draught and bottled beer, premium cider, an extensive wine list and cask ales. Local beers are also favourites for real ale connoisseurs.

The Drift provide a cosy and friendly atmosphere, perfect for the whole family. For your piece of mind, they also provide high chairs and baby changing facilities for the really young ones. Slightly older children are able to play and explore in either of the two play areas. There is no need to leave your furry friend behind either, dogs are very welcome guests at The Drift Inn with dog towels and biscuits to make them feel right at home.

Next door is the pub’s sister establishment, the Beaulieu Hotel, which offers additional amenities and superb accommodation if you decide you want to spend a bit more time enjoying what this lovely part of Hampshire has to offer.
