Hidden away in the little village of Brook, close to Lyndhurst you’ll find The Bell Inn. Owned by the same family since 1782, this charming New Forest property is as timeless as its surroundings on the outside but step inside and you’ll find a blend of traditional and stylish comforts. The Modern British menus reflect this combination using fresh, seasonal, local produce from The New Forest and the family’s estate to create favourite dishes with an inspired twist that keep the locals coming back for more. The large, welcoming bar and lounge has a friendly atmosphere, comfortable sofas and roaring log fires for colder days and long, lazy evenings. In Summer, enjoy eating al fresco in the large garden or just while away an afternoon with a glorious afternoon tea.
