The Trusty Servant
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
In the heart of the New Forest, where wild ponies roam, this charming 18th-century inn is proud to offer a vast and varied menu, incorporating almost exclusively locally sourced produce. With dishes that range from imaginatively named burgers and pizzas to an enticing selection of quintessentially British specials and desserts, you’ll be spoilt for choice. I opted for New Forest wild mushrooms and poached egg on granary toast followed by Hampshire lamb breast stuffed with spinach and pine nuts, served with pancetta-wrapped green beans, fondant potato and lamb jus. Perfectly seasoned and exquisitely cooked, my meal demonstrated a great knowledge of food and respect for ingredients. Serving lunch, dinner, and a special children’s menu, The Trusty Servant is perfect for families and comes highly recommended for visitors to this delightful part of the New Forest. The enormous garden makes al fresco dining a treat in warmer months.
