A stunning location with views to The Needles
The Grade II listed Beach House was built in 1897 for Alexander Siemens (who created the world’s first public electricity supply at Godalming) as a summer house for his family. Formerly known as Westover Hall, Hall & Woodhouse renamed it ‘The Beach House’ in 2012, to reflect how the Siemens family had always used it. Built in the Arts and Crafts style it was judged the most luxurious residence on England’s south coast and indeed the imposing stained glass windows portray Pre-Raphaelite scenes from the “The Enchanted Wood”. With fantastic raised patio areas and extensive gardens the pub also boasts over 200 outside covers and affords great views across to The Needles and the Isle of Wight (on a clear day of course!).
Following the Government’s instruction on the 20th March 2020, we have temporarily closed our doors to protect our guests and our team from the risk of spreading COVID-19.
We are now focussing on the immediate future and how we can continue to make people’s day during the temporary closure of our pubs. We will also ensure that we are well prepared to re-open when it is right to do so.
“Others come – they stay for a while, they flourish, they build – and they go. It is their way. But we remain. We are an enduring lot… we wait, and are patient, and back we come. And so it will ever be. "
Old Mout Cider
Old Mout was dreamed up 65 years ago by New Zealander Wanda, who, on a cycling trip to England, took a liking to the local scrumpy. On her return to Nelson, she decided to set up a cidery in her shed! 60 years later, cider pioneers Justin and Scottie, inspired by amazing island fruits, developed a range of award-winning flavours in New Zealand.

Introducing Forum, the brand new lager from Hall & Woodhouse.
Forum is a 4.2% refreshing Helles style lager, with a delicate flavour from the Weihenstephan yeast and a subtle fruity lemon character from Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon hops.
The name refers not only to Blandford Forum, the location of the H&W brewery where this new, exciting lager is brewed, but also to a meeting or gathering where ideas and views can be exchanged. And where better to meet and put the world to rights than in a traditional British pub, where you can enjoy this refreshing drink with friends and family.
So what are you waiting for, make sure you try a pint next time you visit.
