A HORSEBOX has been transformed into a stylish alfresco bar and kitchen at a New Forest hotel.

The Neigh Bar, located in the grounds of the Careys Manor Hotel & SenSpa in Brockenhurst, is open Wednesday to Sunday from now until the end of September.

The Neigh Bar is supporting a multitude of producers from Hampshire, wines from a local eco-friendly winery and strawberry pink gin from the Isle of Wight.

Daily Echo:

The menu consists of seasonal produce and freshly baked Roccbox flat breads such as ‘The Roundhill’ with melted Tunworth cheese, caramelised onion and Morteau sausage, or there are smaller plates, such as hearty artichokes filled with local Hampshire cheese.

Daily Echo:

Visitors can also choose from the freshest seafood including Brixham brown crab, prawns with mango salsa and grilled octopus.

From the Sunday, July 23, The Neigh Bar will be open daily from 11am until 7.30pm, and food will be served noon until 5.30pm.
