The Old Bakehouse: The best cream tea!
The Old Bakehouse is just off the main street in Beaulieu and is a wonderful place to treat yourself! The cottage was originally the village bakery, and the enormous ovens can still be seen in the tea room. It is very quaint and 'olde-worlde' - a million miles away from Starbucks!
Favorite Dish: We had the cream tea - a pot of tea, and two enormous home-made scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam. I must confess they were so large I couldn't actually finish mine, so if you have a smaller appetite you may want to order just the one scone (my eyes are bigger than my belly!) It cost around £4.00. Light meals are also available.

The Montagu Arms: His Lordship's local
You can't fail to miss this pub in the centre of Beaulieu village. It is also a hotel and restaurant. We stopped here for a drink and found it a little pricey - a simple ploughman's lunch was around £8 - so we didn't eat and I can't comment ion the food. The service was fine though.
The donkeys in this picture often roam through the village as they live semi-wild in the heathland around the village. They provide a great photo opportunity, but please don't feed them!
