Our Story

When blacksmith William Knight first started serving his customers with ale as well as shoeing their horses, he probably didn’t imagine that more than 170 years later the Bold Forester Inn would be carrying on the tradition that he had established in the 1840s.

Located in the picturesque village of Soberton in Hampshire’s Meon Valley, the beautifully refurbished Bold Forester is a historic family-friendly pub that serves freshly cooked food complimented by local ales and selected wines from around the world.
