The perfect New Forest country pub
Named after the Earl of Emsworth’s prize winning Berkshire pig, the Empress of Blandings, with over 350 pictures and paintings of pigs adorning its walls, sits on the edge of the New Forest, close to the M27.
The pub is the only building that is a member of the PG Wodehouse society and the Inn-sign is the only Hall & Woodhouse pub sign where the company name is spelt ‘Wodehouse’.
With plenty of outside seating for the summer, as well as a roaring fire for the winter months, our dog friendly bar features a menu full of all the pub classics, as well as a regularly changing specials board and of course our perfect Sunday Roasts.
Monday - Saturday: 11am - 11pm
Sunday: 12pm - 10:30pm
“A cat will look down at a man. A dog will look up to a man. But a pig will look you straight in the eye and see his equal.”

Introducing Forum, the brand new lager from Hall & Woodhouse.
Forum is a 4.2% refreshing Helles style lager, with a delicate flavour from the Weihenstephan yeast and a subtle fruity lemon character from Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon hops.
The name refers not only to Blandford Forum, the location of the H&W brewery where this new, exciting lager is brewed, but also to a meeting or gathering where ideas and views can be exchanged. And where better to meet and put the world to rights than in a traditional British pub, where you can enjoy this refreshing drink with friends and family.
So what are you waiting for, make sure you try a pint next time you visit.
