New Forest Family Pubs are a small group of elite Public Houses situated within the boundaries of the New Forest National Park.
The local owner of the group brought them together with the specific intention of creating a warm and friendly family atmosphere, catering for families at The Rising Sun, The Swan, The Burley Inn and The Sir Walter Tyrrell; where you will find safe play areas with large outside dining areas.
Each of the pubs serve morning coffees, cream teas and a full menu available all day from 12 noon.
Some of the original sites are mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Book, all of the sites have a rich and varied history, for instance, The Sir Walter Tyrell stands a few yards from the "Rufus Stone" which is where legend has it that Rufus, son of William the Conqueror, was accidently shot and killed by an arrow from Walter Tyrell whilst hunting deer in the forest.

“ I've been going to this place my whole life, and it is my favourite pub in the world! In a beautiful setting, with great countryside all around it for walks and rides.
The food is delicious and I just can't fault it. Best pepper cream sauce I've ever tasted, and the puff pastry is divine, especially at these prices. It's the perfect, quite, country pub. ”
“ Impossible to find fault. On a short holiday in The New Forest we decided to go here for lunch as we'd been here several years ago and enjoyed it then. Dogs are allowed which is a bonus for us as it was too cold to sit outside. The menu was brilliant.
There were 4 vegetarian options all of which sounded really nice. I opted for the wensleydale vegetable bake and it was superb. ”
“ Lunch at The Swan Inn We pulled into The Swan Inn purely due to heavy traffic not knowing what sort of establishment The Swan Inn would be. Once inside we were amazed at the feeling of quality as we walked in... ”
“ So nice! Stayed for a weekend (Fri/Sat/Sun am) just before Christmas. Beautiful, cozy inn with friendly and accommodating staff... ”
