Autumn is the season when it’s most crucial to nurture yourself. Our belief at The Hub is that ‘catching’ a cold is not about some nasty beasty germs invading our bodies – it’s actually that we’ve allowed those germs to sneak past our natural defences. We also believe that preventing them sneaking in like this is only possible if you nurture both your body and your mind.
You can be taking oodles…

Large sunny garden with children's play area and summer bar
In the summer our enormous garden comes into its own, with lots of tables in the sunshine and a superb play area for the children. All our daytime live music events welcome the children too of course - we hope they'll all join in the dancing!
We also have a covered summer bar area with plenty of seating. Thats's where we hold our quiz nights when the weather is kind. Bank Holiday weekends we usually have live music in the garden and the BBQ going. And in August we hold our annual Beer Festival with a host of ales to try.
Several cycling groups visit us regularly, lots of bike routes pass the pub - as well as our forest tracks, do enjoy our local lanes and the views from there of the Solent and Beaulieu River. But, when you arrive in need of ale and sustenance,b please don't lean bikes against the fence!
On leads please. Water provided. Suitable treats available at the bar.
East Boldre has a very large donkey contingent and our visitors love to watch them - especially with their foals! As for the ponies well they're everywhere too!
Winter and spring sunsets viewed across the heath from East Boldre are spectacular, whilst those over nearby Hatchet Pond draw photographers from afar. On summer evenings you can enjoy the last of the sun from the pub garden.
If you check out our website you'll find a couple of good walks described. And some interesting information about East Boldre too - it's a fascinating forest village with absolutely tons of local history.
Whatever time of the year, week and day we're here to welcome you - but these live music events are something else, so put the dates in your diary now.
