About The High Corner Inn

The High Corner Inn is the best kept secret in The New Forest! We are truly 'in the middle of nowhere' down a gravel track where you will experience the beautiful New Forest inhabitants.. ponies, deer and a vast array of other birds and animals.

Situated north of Bournemouth and west of Southampton, 6 miles from the market town of Ringwood surrounded by many local attractions that you may wish to visit using the High Corner as your base.

We care about our food. The quality of the products that we source and the care that we take with them to produce great food is of paramount importance to us. Our poultry and eggs are free range and all our meats are sourced from award winning suppliers Walter Rose & Sons of Devizes. Our attention to detail will ensure that you can be assured of great quality meal every time you visit with us.

Location: .   The High Corner Inn - Linwood
This is one of those restaurants you may have heard of, you even have driven past the entrance, never been to and always wonered about! Well we decided to have a look and tried the food and liked what we saw and ate. It's a bit out of the way but a really nice location set in typical New Forest scenery. We can sit outside after our dinner if the weather allows.

Dining: .   Restaurant
We will be dining in the Hiogh Corner Inn Function Room which is located one end of the main building. The picture shows the room set up for a wedding reception. The room is long and reasonably wide. We expect our tables to be more random, as we are used to seeing. Toilets are handy next to the restaurant. The garden is alonside the function room and easily accessible.

Travel: .   Herrington's Coach Door to Door
We have arranged pick up points as near as possible where you live, more points can be added. Our coach will be from Herrington's Coaches, the coach size will depend upon ticket sales. (picture is not of the exact coach expected)

Drinks: .   Buy your drinks at the bar on arrival
We will go to the bar area on arrival to buy our drinks. You will find an excellent choice of beers on sale along with a selection of soft drinks. An excellent selection of wines are available by the bottle or different size glasses. Please remember to pay for your drinks as you go through the evening.

Food: .
