The 16th century Filly Inn at Brockenhurst sports a new look as it reopens after undergoing extensive renovation work.

Run by Punch Pubs & Co, the Filly Inn is popular with ramblers and dog walkers.

A Punch spokesman said the newly-restored pub boasted open fireplaces, cosy corners and a spacious rear garden – plus seven new en-suite rooms.

He added: The pub’s menu is bursting with home-cooked food, and locally-sourced seafood specials are the order of the day. The eclectic menu sees quintessential British classics rub shoulders with modern bistro dishes, as well as plenty of small plates for nibbling on with drinks.

For the seasoned drinker there is a well-stocked bar of local beers, quality real ales, liveners, and pick-me-ups, he added.

Nick Ranhem has reopened the building with the help of general manager Sean Murphy.

Nick said: This huge investment has restored the pub to its former glory, retaining its unique charm and quirky character the community is so fond of.

Operations director Robin Belither added: The Filly Inn is an absolute gem. The team has worked tirelessly to restore a stunning inn steeped in history. We are so proud of the result.

Heathland opposite the pub was home to a PoW camp, traces of which can still be seen. The facility was built in 1941 to hold PoWs.

The camp was then handed over to what was then New Forest Rural District Council to house the families of returning servicemen, who had previously been accommodated in Nissen huts at Beaulieu aerodrome.

The camp continued to operate until the early 1950s, when sufficient council housing had been built.
