Pub Restaurants in the New Forest

Situated in the beautiful village of Lyndhurst, you can expect a royal welcome from our team here at The Swann Inn. The buildings on our site were used as stables to begin with, and functioned as a coach house for horse-drawn traffic. Later they were converted into an inn, and it was renamed the Swan Alehouse and began its life as an inn back in 1731. Photographs capturing the history before we were known as New Forest pub restaurants show that the courtyard used to be utilised for the sale of ponies in the local area.

In the 1980’s it was given the name The Swann Inn and is now the best of family-run New Forest pub restaurants. We’ve become well-known and loved by the locals for being a wonderful dog friendly family pub. With plenty on offer, we’ve got something for everyone.

All of our food is prepared and cooked by our talented chefs, and we source as many of our ingredients from local sources. Our chefs strive to add their own personal touches to each dish, and love the feedback we get. They’re always trying to improve their styles and add to their culinary expertise. New Forest pub restaurants can’t keep up with our team’s enthusiasm and service. Our restaurant offers five menus, including:

Main Menu

Vegan Menu

Sunday Menu

Gluten-Free Menu

Children's Menu

Seasonal/Events Menus - Our seasonal menus cover special dates like Valentine’s Day and many others.

If you’d like a group to feel the hospitality of New Forest pubs restaurants, we are always happy to cater for parties, events, functions and social occasions. Our restaurant can accommodate up to 80 people, and we are able to provide a bespoke experience for wedding receptions, anniversaries, large groups of cyclists and more.

If you’re something of a connoisseur and are looking to wet your beak at New Forest pub restaurants, we have many different drinks available. There are cask ales, real ales and beers available for the traditional drinkers. Our wine selection is the perfect accompaniment to our delicious fresh food. On offer as well are a selection of ciders, lagers, beers and spirits. There’s an outdoor seating area for those looking to enjoy the summer sun and enjoy our chefs’ creations, and a play area for the kids to enjoy while you relax.

No other New Forest pub restaurants are like us and within walking distance of Lyndhurst, often considered the capital of the New Forest. We’re a perfect place to stay and enjoy the walks and tours of the New Forest and surrounding area. We have rooms available for those in need of accommodation, or a bed and breakfast if you’re here for a short stay. If you’re in the area for the day, why not stop off and enjoy a cream tea by the open fire? We can’t guarantee you’ll want to leave after though. If you’re planning a group walk or tour of the New Forest, we’re a wonderful place to arrange group meetings and enjoy our hospitality before you set off on your adventure.

If you’re looking for somewhere that you can host a private event, with which you’ll wish for privacy and a peaceful place to be with family friends, our staff will ensure you’re well catered for. We are able to host funeral wakes for up to 80 people, and our events menus are customisable, and we are happy to take requests and work around specific requirements.
