Welcome

A cosy pub restaurant on the edge of rolling Sussex countryside

Situated in the heart of the South Downs, opposite the north gate of the South of England showground, the Gardeners Arms is a traditional and homely pub restaurant.  

Dating back to the 17th Century, the pub is cosy in the winter, with roaring log fires and traditional oak beams and glorious in the summer, with a beautiful garden; we even have deer visit occasionally and our own grape vines!

Indeed, the three dimensional Inn sign at the pub recreates the symbol of the Order of Free Gardeners, a masonic group (now extinct) dedicated to sharing the secrets of gardening.

With a focus on great food and hospitality and dog friendly, as any great pub should be, the Gardeners Arms really is a home from home.


Opening Times

Monday – Saturday: 11am - 11pm
Sunday: 11am - 10.30pm

"It is utterly forbidden to be half-hearted about gardening.  You have got to love your garden whether you like it or not."
Sellar & Yateman

Forum Lager

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
