The London Tavern in Ringwood is a good old fashioned English pub idyllically set on the edge of Hampshire’s beautiful New Forest.
The pub was established in the 1860s when its founder, John Robberts, was outraged when he heard a story of an ailing old woman who was refused to be served medicinal brandy at the nearby White Hart Inn because it was too late at night. He promptly secured the appropriate licence and began to serve alcohol from his own home!
The current owners have been in charge for ten years and have stayed true to this landmark pub’s heritage. As you would expect, the London Tavern offers a good selection of real ales and serves good old pub grub. It may be tucked along a quiet Poulner lane, but this venue makes a big noise on the live music scene. It also hosts a regular pub quiz and a good old meat draw too!
