The Selborne Arms is the perfect location to share a drink or 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 church, pottery 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. Food is served lunch and dinner every day.

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 twelve wines available by the glass and local 'Selborne' fizz.

Five local real ales feature on the bar 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 the real fire in the bar offers welcome warmth in the colder months.

It is always a good idea to book if you can, if you want to sit inside or in particular if you are a large group. If you are walking here and will need a taxi home please think about booking one in advance - they can be difficult to get at short notice in a rural village.

There is a large car park behind the pub. The part nearest the pub is run by East Hampshire District Council and is free to park in. The top part belongs to Gilbert White's House and you need to pay to park there if you are not visiting the museum. Payment is online or via an app. Signs tell you about it in their car park but if you have any problems or if you are a large group and wish to pay in advance you can contact the museum directly on 01420 511275. We also have a few parking bays at the front of the pub.
