Welcome to Alice Holt Forest Café

We are a family run business that set out to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, with amazingly good food and drink, all served with a smile from the heart of the beautiful Forest.

From the beginning it was important to us to create somewhere we would go ourselves with our family, so we are pleased to welcome everyone, and our team really hope you’ll notice that our menu has been thoughtfully put together to cater for all tastes, appetites and dietary requirements. We also have a special menu for your little ones!

A bit more about Alice Holt Forest and It’s History

Alice Holt Forest is a royal forest in Hampshire, situated some 4 miles (6.4km) south of Farnham, Surrey. Once predominately an ancient oak forest, it was particularly noted in the 18th and 19th centuries for the timber it supplied for the building of ships for the Royal Navy. It is now planted mainly with conifers.
