You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more charming and quintessentially British pub than The Trusty Servant Inn. Set in the unspoilt village of Minstead, this delightful venue overlooks the village green and is set amongst a plethora of adorable thatched cottages, surrounded by the beautiful landscape of the New Forest. If you’re lucky, you may even spot some of the area’s native ponies ambling past.

The Trusty Servant is a particularly popular start and end point with walkers and cyclists. In fact, the spacious garden area is the ideal place to relax following a morning of exploring and you can bring your four-legged friends for a drink and a rest too. Inside the pub, you can expect to be greeted by an exceptionally friendly and polite team of staff as well as a welcoming, traditional interior. Exposed beams and rustic furniture create a comfortable and laid-back ambience and there’s plenty of seating available, whether you’re ordering a pint of your favourite real ale or indulging in a hearty meal.

As reliable as its name suggests, the food here is always home-cooked and prepared fresh to order. Its setting means that the chefs have access to a wealth of high-quality, locally sourced produce and with an extensive and varied menu there’s something available for every palate. Why not pop in first thing in the morning for a taste of The Trusty Servant’s breakfast offering? Choose a traditional full English breakfast, a tasty dish of eggs Florentine or one of the tempting breakfast bagels. Stopping by for lunch? Why not split several dishes from the dedicated sharing menu? The baked Camembert is gooey and indulgent – best enjoyed next to the roaring open fire – and the creative vegan sharing board comes with homemade pickles, vegan mozzarella sticks, beetroot hummus and flatbread. If you’re searching for something heartier, check out the list of classics and chef’s choices: the flavoursome steak and kidney pie is virtually irresistible and the lamb shank hot pot is the perfect winter warmer.

For those looking for a peaceful weekend escape, The Trusty Servant is also home to five newly refurbished en-suite rooms. Its central location makes it the ideal base for exploring the New Forest.
