We offer an extensive range of award-winning home-cooked food, sourced wherever possible from local producers.
Our passion lies in finding quality ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a solid base of freshly prepared, classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. They change slightly every week, with a more substantial change approximately every month.
We are especially proud of our Daily “Skipper’s Catch” fish board which highlights a selection of fresh and sustainable fish from the seas around the South coast. Simply cooked and wonderfully presented. We serve superb locally sourced food that brings out the best of the flavours of Hampshire. Our food is cooked to order, so that you can be sure that even though it might take slightly longer it is definitely worth the wait.
Our food changes frequently as we take advantage of the seasonal produce available to us, so our menus are samples but there will always be some classic favourites plus a range of innovative dishes to delight your palate.
We are justly famous for our Sunday lunches, freshly made Yorkshire puddings, 28 day aged English Sirloin, Breast of Turkey or slowly braised Lamb shanks, crispy roast potatoes and a wide selection of freshly cooked vegetables. You can even enjoy a roast if you are vegetarian or gluten free.
We seek to cater for all appetites, allergies and preferences. Let us know before you order or better still when you book and we’ll do everything we can to make the perfect meal.
Since 2018 we have added an expanded selection of vegetarian, vegan and numerous gluten-free dishes to our menus
Please Note: Our menus change almost daily, and we’ve found it really difficult to keep them updated here, so you can view a specimen menu below, but if you’d like to get an up-to-date menu to choose from before you arrive, please contact us.
With all the other stresses and strains of recent months, we wanted to make things as easy and adaptable as possible for you this year just in case things change. That means through most of December… no deposits, no set menus and no pre-ordering.
Instead, every day throughout December you will find our menu generously sprinkled with all the flavours of Christmas including, of course, the traditional Turkey Dinner, alongside many of your usual favourites. That way, if you are coming more than once (and why not?) you will have plenty of dishes to choose from. To give you an idea of how things will look, we have created a sample menu below. As there is no need to pre-order you can just decide what you fancy on the day. So while some things will be different we can promise you that…
…the crackling fires, the twinkling trees and the warm welcome will be just as it has always been at the White Horse at Ampfield
