The Foresters Arm, Frogham

Foresters Arms | EQUIFOR

Known locally as the donkey pub, The Foresters Arms in Frogham has always been a New Forest favourite. But recently it’s been spruced up, given a stylish, rustic and rather chic update, and painted muted shades of dappled woodland greens.

The look is comfortably eclectic – a mix of tartan and exposed brickwork, antlers and lampstands, in-vogue character cushions of Geisha faces and traditional pews, old pine tables and auction finds. Think it sounds dandy-meets-country? Well, it is!

Hare & Hounds, Sway, Lymington
