The Old Beams

An Iconic New Forest Pub

The Old Beams Inn, situated in Ibsley, in the New Forest, is an iconic 11th Century gastropub. For the past 60 years The Old Beams has been renowned for providing excellent local ales and serving delicious, fresh, locally sourced food that is prepared with passion and enthusiasm. Our pub has recently been refurbished and has a new management team in place who are waiting to welcome you.

We pride ourselves on offering a warm and friendly environment for locals and tourists alike and well-behaved dogs are always welcome; we even provide doggie biscuits and water bowls for your furry friends.

Our large bar area boasts roaring open fires, ideal for those cold Winter months, with comfortable armchair seating, where you can sit back, relax and enjoy a drink to quench your thirst. We have a great selection of local Ringwood Ales, along with Heineken Extra Cold, Moretti, Amstel, and a choice of ciders on tap. For those non-beer drinkers amongst you, we have various chilled white wines, full bodied reds, and plenty of spirits from the top shelf – including a huge array of flavoured gins, which always prove popular – and of course, a wide selection of soft drinks and various speciality coffees and teas to choose from.

Our food style is simple, yet delicious, offering pub classics in a modern British style. Everything we cook is freshly prepared and presented to the highest standard. Our Chefs are deeply passionate about their craft and we believe this comes across with every plate of food we serve.

We highly recommend our delicious Sunday Carvery, which is served from 12-4pm every Sunday. It truly is a wonder to behold. With a choice of three oven roasted joints, crispy goose fat roasted potatoes and a huge selection of roasted vegetables, it really is too good to miss. We do advise you book before-hand, as our Carvery has earnt itself quite a reputation and is often fully booked.

Our bar restaurant area is ideal for cosy, intimate meals and family dining, whilst our substantial conservatory restaurant is perfect for large groups, or private functions, with our total inside seating accommodating up to 135 diners. More seating is provided outside with our front and rear beer gardens; offering comfy cushion seating and a raised wooden terrace, perfect for the warm Summer months.

So, whether you want to just pop in for a quiet drink, maybe a coffee or a cream tea, or perhaps a family meal out, The Old Beams Inn and our friendly staff are waiting to serve you.

We hope you enjoy your visit with us.

We are a dog friendly pub, feel free to bring them in!
