Mark, Chloe and their friendly young team welcome you to The Hampshire Bowman in Dundridge, a traditional country free-house serving real ales, real ciders and real food all year round.

We’re dog friendly and mobile phone unfriendly. The Hampshire Bowman is a great unspoilt country pub with a huge garden. Real ale and traditional cider are our specialty – we’ve been in the CAMRA good beer guide for over 30 years!

PLEASE NOTE - We don't take bookings for our HUGE garden, please just turn up if you want to sit outside!

    Not our first time but once again another fantastic visit. The Welcome is always enthusiastic, the choice of beers and ales are something that most places cannot compete with, and the food is excellent with big portions! Nothing here not to like, thank you and we’ll see you again soon.

    Love love love The Hampshire Bowman. Shame the weather was not conducive to sitting in the fab garden! Perhaps I should say it's terrible and keep it to ourselves 😂

    Another great meal - brilliant staff (and owners) , great ale, home cooked food, dog friendly but all well controlled , been a favourite since lockdown when they offered beer and homemade pies every Friday as a take away Wouldn’t go anywhere else

    We have been visiting the Hampshire Bowman for years and the food just gets better and better. Always something on the menu to suit everyone and good quality and hot. Even when it’s busy we have no complaints. The choice of ciders and ales are always very good. It was great to see the pub so busy and thriving. For us a return taxi is near on £100 but so worth it.
