The Drift Inn - Brockenhurst, Hampshire



The Drift Inn is a friendly New Forest pub with local ales, good food, cosy fires in the winter and a large garden and two play areas perfect for those warmer months. A special children\'s menu is also on offer with free activity pack to keep them amused when they are worn out from playing outside!


The pub has strong links with the New Forest and the photos on display in the Inn, by local photographer Barry Whitcher, tell the story of the pony drift and pony sales. We serve a full selection of draught beers, wines and spirits for your enjoyment along with a range of real ale, seasonal drinks and a wide selection of soft drinks for those non-drinkers and drivers. We have disabled facilities and a car park situated on the grounds of the pub.


The Drift Inn boasts about its extensive menu of the finest quality food around. Freshly prepared traditional classics and modern favourites are served to perfection everyday. We hold theme nights every other week including the renowned steak nights where you choose your own cut and size of steak and enjoy the buffet while our chefs cook it exactly as you wish. We can cater for special occasions and private functions for up to 100 people.


The perfect spot for enjoying the annual pony sales or for a Sunday roast or refreshments after a long walk across the New Forest.  Wellies, walking boots and dogs all welcome!
