Nick and Hayley Carter and all the staff welcome you to The Selborne Arms, located in the beautiful village of Selborne in the South Downs National Park.

The majority of the produce on our menus is from as close to our doorstep as possible. We have been keen supporters of the quality and welfare of our local produce since our arrival here in January 2001 and believe this can only add to your experience here with us.

All our food is prepared fresh to order so may take a little longer than usual during busy periods.

If you suffer from any allergies please do let us know and we will try to help in any way we can. We do not use any GM products.
