The Drift


Are children welcome?

Family-owned, we are always so pleased to meet our little guests of the future. So, if you’re bringing your little ones, we’ve got a fab children’s menu, nutritious Cawston Press fruit juices, colouring packs and an outdoor play area to keep them entertained.

If you’ll need a highchair, please let us know when making your booking.

Can I bring my dog?

Yes, whether you’re sitting inside or out, we welcome well-behaved furry friends for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Inside, our dog-friendly tables are found pub side, with only assistance dogs allowed in our restaurant.

We know, a good walk is probably at the top of your list when eating out. Luckily enough we’re surrounded by acres of open heathlands just waiting to be explored and when you return, there’s towels for muddy paws, complimentary doggy biscuits and water bowls to drink from.

How far is the nearest train station?

The nearest train stations are Beaulieu Road Station (120 yards) and Ashurst New Forest (six miles).

Is there on-site parking?

There’s complimentary on-site car parking in front of The Drift. This includes charging points for electric cars and designated disabled parking spaces.

If full, you are welcome to use our neighbouring Beaulieu Inn car park, less than a minutes’ walk.

Are you accessible?

There’s a small step at the front door entrance – upon request, our side door can be opened for wheelchair access.
