Stunning views across the Solent
The Osborne View joined the Hall & Woodhouse family in 1961 and is the only remaining pub along Hill Head Beach front, with direct access to the shingle beach. Affording stunning views across the Solent (on a clear day of course!) the pub is named after Osborne House (residential home of HM Queen Victoria) on the Isle of Wight. With over 400 outside covers spanning a raised decked patio and large garden, together with a separate outside bar, there’s nothing quite like it for watching the World go by, particularly on a bright spring or summer’s day. Indeed, in 1912 the Titanic reportedly sailed by on its maiden and last voyage from Southampton to New York! Built in the Victorian era, you can also rest assured that if the sun isn’t shining, there’s always a truly warm welcome waiting for you in the cosy interior, with separate dining and more informal seating areas.
We welcome the Government’s decision that Public Houses can reopen from Saturday 4th July. We have been working tirelessly to prepare for this. Our priority is to reopen our pub in a safe and controlled way for our guests and team.
It is our intention to reopen week commencing 19th July, to allow for a phased roll out of all of our H&W pubs. The exact date will be dependent on our final preparations to make you and our team safe and comfortable.
We cannot wait to have you visit after such a long period of closure. Please keep an eye on our website for further details of our exact reopening date and what you can expect.

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.
