The Wash House Bar

Welcome to The Wash House. We’re a micro ale bar that’s passionate about working with the best artisan producers from across the New Forest and south coast.

Located in idyllic village of Milford on Sea, just a short stroll from the Solent and the historic Hurst Castle, The Wash House is the perfect place to relax or party with friends.

With an ever-changing choice of local traditional ales to choose from, award winning gins, spirits and wines there's bound to be a tipple that takes your fancy.

We’re proud to be part of the local community, it’s at the heart of everything we stand for, and we look forward to welcoming you soon.

We sell gift vouchers for any amount which can be purchased over the bar.

Our Story

We love great beer, stocking ales from talented local brewers through to sourcing the finest craft beers we can lay our hands on! Ciders, gins, wines and a great choice of organic soft drinks are available.

With our friends at Solent Cellar we’ve put together a clever and exciting wine list, we’ll have artisan gins and spirits along with a great choice of Luscombe organic soft drinks.

The beauty of being an independently owned micro pub is freedom! As the seasons change, so will our craft ales. We’re always on the look-out for new ones too. You can also expect a few little twists too. Ever thought about pairing a gold medal gin with chocolate for instance?

Our coffee is freshly ground by Coffee Mongers of Lymington. Roasted to perfection, The Wash House is a great place to refuel and catch up with friends.

So why is it called The Wash House? Well, the venue used to be a place to wash your smalls and catch up on the local gossip. Today, we serve great beer. But you can still pop in and air your dirty linen! Why not give us a spin?!

Bar Snacks & Dining

Okay, we don’t have a grumpy chef slaving away in the kitchen, but if you fancy something more substantial than a bar snack we are now proud to be supplying food from our neighbours La Perle. Orders can be taken at the bar from a select menu. Food will then be freshly cooked at La Perle restaurant by head chef Sam and his team who will then travel the short distance across the road to arrive at your table ready to be enjoyed with a delicious local drink of your choice.

We’d be happy for you to bring in your takeaway. We’ll provide plates and all the tools needed, you just need to decide which of the amazing selection of local eateries will be your treat for the night!

You’ll also be able to nibble on a range of lovely bar snacks that are perfect with a pint or glass of something fizzy over ice.
