A New Forest hotel and spa has opened a pop-up bar in a vintage horse box to serve food and cocktails over the summer.

Careys Manor Hotel & SenSpa on Lyndhurst Road in Brockenhurst is welcoming customers to an all new pop up bar, known as The Neigh Bar.

Made from a converted vintage horse box, it is inspired by the New Forest National Park’s native wild ponies in the hotel’s grounds in the heart of the New Forest.

From now until September, The Neigh Bar will be dispensing summery cocktails and fluffy flatbreads for hotel guests and customers to enjoy.

Cocktails are seasonal with a classic Pimm’s with seasonal fruit, fresh garden mint and lemonade alongside spicy Picantes and Ginger Cosmos.
