The pub is currently closed until further notice

Selborne Arms during Covid-19


Welcome Back from Thursday 3rd December 2020

Opening within Tier 2 COVID Regulations
Open 12-3pm and 6-10pm every day
Due to the latest regulations there are limitations on the opening of the pub:

  • We are only allowed to serve alcohol with a ‘substantial meal’ (we are researching this and looking to offer some budget alternatives and maybe a ‘pint and meal offer’ - watch this space)
  • You are only allowed to socialise inside with people from your household or support bubble (please respect that and follow the law as it is impossible for us to police who has formed bubbles)
  • If sitting outside you can sit on a table of up to six people (we have our newly-refurbished covered patio area so please do feel free to book a table in there)
  • Last orders must be 10pm but you may continue eating/drinking for one hour after this
  • We are still permitted to sell takeaways of food and drink but alcohol without a meal must still be ordered in advance - (phone 01420 511247 or email selbornearms@gmail.com)
  • Everything must be table service; you must remain seated whilst in the pub, unless using the toilets
  • you must wear a mask inside unless seated at your table to eat and drink.

Our one-way system remains in place so please enter by the green door at the back and wait by the screen to be seated. Please use our hand sanitiser on the way in.

Please book wherever possible but do not be put off from coming in if you have not booked as It is likely there will be tables available.

Over Christmas we will be open every day except Christmas Day and we will be closed in the evening on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. We will confirm this after the 16th December review that has been promised.
This may all change as regulations change so please do keep an eye on this page.

Please do contact us if you need any further information or to book a table.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

The Selborne Arms is the perfect location to share a meal with family, friends or colleagues. Whether you are organising a walk up the Zig Zag path or along the Hangers Way, or a visit to the gallery or museum, or simply want somewhere to eat out, the Selborne Arms is ideal.

The menu offers a range of traditional and innovative dishes which meet this popular venue’s high standards and showcase local and homemade produce.

The blackboard menus are available for lunch or dinner, and there is a lunchtime snack menu if you prefer a lighter bite.

A warm welcome awaits, whether you prefer the cosy atmosphere of the bars or the more intimate Dining Room. Superb wine lists offer a fantastic choice, with ten wines available by the glass.

Five local real ales feature on the bar (seven in summer) and there is a wide selection of soft drinks for the driver, tee total or child. A play area in the huge garden is popular with children and parents, and a wishing well barbecue is available for parties in the summer.
