Christmas 2020


We have made the tough decision not to produce a special Christmas menu this year.

The main reasons are that we are only allowed to have groups of up to six people and tables must be spaced, meaning we are very restricted on the number of people we can accommodate in the pub over the winter. Also, we are at risk of having to close again if East Hampshire moves tiers in the government's new Covid regulations and we cannot afford to throw away the quantity of fresh food that we did in March. It is therefore not feasible for us to run two different menus simultaneously.

What we have therefore decided to do is to offer our normal menu, which will have some new special dishes on it throughout December (possibly including turkey and definitely including Christmas pudding), and if people want to make it a 'Christmassy' meal we will add a simple £1 per person cover charge to cover the additional cost of crackers, Christmas napkins, etc.

While we would of course much prefer that everything could go ahead as normal this year, we hope that you will still book for your smaller groups, come along and enjoy the excellent food and drink that we always offer.

Nick and Hayley Carter and all the staff welcome you to The Selborne Arms, located in the beautiful village of Selborne in the South Downs National Park.

The majority of the produce on our menus is from as close to our doorstep as possible. We have been keen supporters of the quality and welfare of our local produce since our arrival here in January 2001 and believe this can only add to your experience here with us.

All our food is prepared fresh to order so may take a little longer than usual during busy periods.

If you suffer from any allergies please do let us know and we will try to help in any way we can. We do not use any GM products.

VAT is included at 20%.
