Pubs With Play Areas In The New Forest

Nothing beats a nice pub lunch and a little tipple in the beautiful surroundings of the New Forest. Of course, the whole pub experience is much more enjoyable when the little people have something to enjoy too. Finding a pub with a play area is the solution to a happy, stress-free meal for everyone.

Pubs With Play Areas In The New Forest

I’ve put together a list of some family friendly pubs with children’s play areas in the New Forest to help you if you’re looking for somewhere to  have a family meal.

(Please see disclaimer at end of post)

The Drift Inn, Lyndhurst

Beaulieu Road, Nr.Lyndhurst, Hampshire, SO42 7YQ



This is one of our favourite pubs and children are well catered for. The Drift Inn has kindly provided some information on how they welcome children to their establishment:

‘The Drift Inn is an extremely family friendly pub. We have a large and tasty children’s menu and provide the little ones with activity packs that include colouring sheets and crayons.


There are lots of great walks and cycle tracks in the area and families often use our pub to relax and unwind. We’re also right next to the train station to its easy access for people using public transport.’

    Good to know for when we have the g. girls! But people bare in mind one adult in the group should be stood with playing kids not just sat drinking away from their kids not just for the kids safety but for the staff bringing out hit food!
