Welcome to our beautiful pub, the Walhampton Arms

We believe that the simple things are often the best. That good times are spent with friends and family, sat around the table enjoying great food and drink. That everyone receives the warmest of welcomes and is made to feel special…..especially those visiting with their four-legged friends!

Set in the stunning New Forest, the Walhampton Arms is just a few minutes from the bustling Georgian market town of Lymington with views of the Isle of Wight across the Solent. It’s the perfect location to relax and explore.

The pub dates back to the 1800’s when it was a dairy and part of the Walhampton Estate. That history and character remains, but inside, we’ve bought a rustic and contemporary feel to our dining and drinking spaces, that also provide a variety of options for events or parties.

Our menu’s try to capture the essence of what a pub should be about. Dishes to share and graze from, plus ‘specials’ with that little twist from our chef.

Of course, good food isn’t complete without a glass of ale or wine from our carefully chosen list.

On behalf of the team, we look forward to welcoming you soon!

“Fabulous! Stayed here for two nights with some friends. Lovely room, nicely furnished, comfy bed. Weather was very warm so a fan was very welcome. We ate in the pub both nights and for breakfast. Good choice of food and nice traditional food. Reasonably priced too. 20 min walk into Lymington or 5 mins in the car or taxi. Would definitely stay again

“One of the best carveries. The restaurant was recommended by a friend, and it did not disappoint. The Carvery was beautifully cooked (beef, pork and turkey), and the vegetables were just right. The best part was the freshly prepared sauces, from horseradish, apple, and cranberry, to the gravy. The restaurant setting was cosy, even though it’s a Sunday and very busy. Staff are welcoming, friendly, and professional, completing the overall experience. Highly recommended.

“Super friendly, accommodating hosts, with luxurious lodgings away from the hubbub of the town, near enough and far enough
We had two rooms a large double and an adjoining twin. Perfect fit for our family. The rooms were spotlessly clean, the bed linen crisp & fresh and the beds just as comfy as our own home, which is hard to find.”

“Great overnight stay and breakfast – thanks Hannah and the team!
Great overnight stay before ferry to IOW 
We stayed one night only, check in was seemless, room clean and tidy and the bed comfy with lovely crisp linen!
The highlight was a delicious breakfast – eggs Benedict was my choice- with my wife choosing gluten free fruity French toast with maple syrup – we left fully satisfied … thanks HannaH and the rest of team for a lovely restful stay”

“Great place to stay. My partner and I booked a last minute night away here last week and didn’t expect too much, just wanted a room to stay. We were pleasantly surprised however and the room istelf was lovely, very clean and modern. We ate dinner and breakfast in the pub and the food was really lovely, service was great and very welcoming. We honestly had no complaints and would 100% recommend!”

“Sunday Lunch – Booked during the week, thanks to a friends recommendation and was not disappointed, the carvery was amazing, the best we have seen around the area, vegetables green instead of wilting away – crispy potatoes and pink beef (yum). The chef on the carvery even convinced my daughter to have some carrots – normally she won’t touch any veg – we were impressed. The team were great, could see they were struggling but clearly had a sign upon entry stating understaffed due to illness. We will definitely be returning – thanks walhampton team”

The food was impressive and the chef carving was lovely and friendly. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a yummy treat on a Sunday. The atmosphere was booming as well. Such a good lunch”
