Sir Walter Tyrrell
Lyndhurst, The New Forest
There are several dining areas within the grounds of the Sir Walter Tyrrell. Inside we have several areas where you can sit down and relax before you dine. In two of the areas there are real log fires for those winter evenings.
If you prefer to sit outside in the summer we have tables with seating at the front of the pub or opposite the children's play area. Whatever your preference we have something to suit you on your visit.
This picturesque forest pub belies its oldie worldly appearance, as it is not as old as it looks. The original Public House on this site was called the 'Stump' and in fact, still exists today. It is the brick built house in the top car park, and was named after the Landlady who had a wooden leg.
The new pub, was constructed in the 1930's by a local entrepreneur and was originally thatched. It suffered some fires in the thatch and was finally rebuilt with a tiled roof. The name changed to the Sir Walter Tyrrell after the man, who was supposed to have been responsible for the death of Rufus. During this period they also had a menagerie with monkeys and exotic birds, and a large ornamental pond, where the top and bottom car parks now meet.
