New Forest Pub Guide

New Forest Pub Guide Cover Sold Out!

Update April 2015

Having published the New Forest Pub Guide in summer 2011, we have now sold our last copy. We know that you can still (for now) buy brand new copies from CAMRA's online shop and that there are second-hand used copies available on Amazon Marketplace.

Thanks to those who have bought a copy already for making this guide such a popular guide book.

If you're interested in finding information about pubs in the New Forest and beyond then please visit CAMRA's free online pub guide on your PC or mobile device.


When the New Forest National Park was created we saw the need for a guide to its pubs. This guide lists every pub and hotel bar (190 of them), open to non-resident visitors, within the combined areas of the New Forest District Council and National Park. Amongst other things, the full-colour guide contains:

  • Pubs & Inns
  • Pub Facilities
  • Breweries & Beers
  • Opening hours
  • Public Transport information
  • Detailed area maps
  • Fold-out area map

See below for where you can buy the guide.


Point of Interest (POI) file for Satnav devices

We've produced a POI files for compatible TomTom, Garmin and Navman sat-nav devices (please check that your device is capable of supporting custom POIs before attempting to install). This is a free add-on to the pub guide and will only give you the address details and location of each pub in the guide's area. The files that you need to copy onto your Sat Nav device are contained within a compressed "zip" folder - it is the contents of this zip folder that you need to install on your device, not the zip folder itself.

Installation instructions for each device are the same as those for the Good Beer Guide on your Sat Nav, other than the names of the POI files that you're copying on ("NewForestPubs", instead of "GBG20XX"). These can be downloaded from the GBG Sat Nav webpage or by clicking your Sat Nav type: TomTom, Garmin, or Navman (opens in new window).

If you have any problems, please email for help.


Can I help sell the guide?

Yes! If you'd like to help us sell guides to pubs and other outlets, please simply send an email to We're all volunteers and many hands make light work. Thank you in advance for volunteering.


Where Can I buy the guide?

The guide is available online, in person and by post, as detailed below.
