Good News!

Cask Marque


The Forest of Bere has received another 100% pass from Cask Marque this week to continue the tradition of serving our Customers a great pint.


Cask Marque is an independent organisation which assesses Real Ales being served all over the country for temperature, appearance, aroma, and taste.  They also check the cleanliness of the glassware used for service to ensure that the Glasswasher is performing to the highest standard.


The Forest of Bere is sponsored for this accreditation on an annual basis by Greene King (Abbot Ale) and St Austell (Tribute) breweries.  The independent assessments are carried out unannounced approximately every six months.

A Hearty Meal Served with a Smile

The Forest of Bere located in the village of Denmead in Hampshire is a local pub (The Pub is the Hub) that offers a warm welcome and a friendly atmosphere in which to have a drink with friends or to enjoy some traditional pub cuisine. One look at our menu and you will see that our passion is pies!

We will show you our homemade pies provide well and truly classic pub grub that is wholesome and hearty. We aim to serve a selection of freshly baked pies every day accompanied by mashed potatoes or chips, mushy peas or seasonal vegetables together with our wonderful rich gravy.

Delicious Food and Drink Served Fresh

At The Forest of Bere, we are proud to offer the finest dishes made to order, all paired with the best local and imported beers and ales and wines available. We continuously strive to create a family friendly and welcoming atmosphere, where you, your family, and your friends can unwind and enjoy a delicious treat away from home.

Drop in this afternoon or evening and see what has made us one of the most popular destinations in the Denmead area.
