The Forest Inn is a bustling country food-led pub located in the village of Ashurst, on the main A road to the New Forest from Southampton City Centre. This pretty village includes the very popular Ashurst Campsite, the New Forest Wildlife Park and a variety of shops and a railway station, all of which attract high volumes of visitors and tourists to the area each year.

The Forest pub boasts a traditional bar area, a restaurant and an extensive front and rear beer garden. This would be a fantastic starter pub for a food-minded, first-time publican who is ready to take on their first pub business.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

The Forest is a lovely one-storey pub offering a fantastic opportunity for a first-time publican. I am seeking an individual or couple who have food experienced as this is a quality food led business and with the prime location of the property, the key to success is roadside appeal.
