The Crown Stirrup is a country pub in the heart of The New Forest serving classic pub food, grills & just good grub! We offer a range of drinks in our fully stocked bar & a large menu so there is plenty to choose from. We have indoor seating with an open fire plus a large forest garden which leads you onto many walking tracks through the New Forest. We are family friendly with a scrumptious kids menu and we also are dog friendly throughout (even a few bites to eat for our four legged friends).
