The Empress of Blandings | Country pub near Cadnam, Hampshire

Welcome

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.

“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.”
Winston Churchill
