A pub near Basingstoke that’s teeming with natural charm

Named after a butterfly that flits over the Hampshire countryside, our cosy pub restaurant is full of rustic appeal, from its oak-beamed interiors to its wildflower-edged garden terrace. We’re located in Beggarwood, a village near Basingstoke, making us a perfect spot for leisurely lunches in our beer garden or a refreshing drink after a long tramp through the surrounding countryside. 

Our Menus

Here at The Holly Blue we take our food seriously, whether it’s a generously-portioned classic Sunday roast, a tempting light lunch, or a memorable evening meal for a special occasion. Our chefs work with seasonal ingredients to reinvigorate traditional pub food, offering familiar favourites alongside imaginative fine dining dishes. That means hand-cut chips, sumptuous specials, and luscious puds you won’t want to share.


Christmas at The Holly Blue

Make your yuletide extra merry by booking a festive meal with us. Our wonderfully cosy pub restaurant will be decked out for the season, while our menu serves up all your Christmas and New Year favourites.

Just make sure you book in advance because tables will get snapped up faster than mince pies on Christmas Eve.


Our coffees

You’re guaranteed a decent brew at The Holly Blue, because we take making coffee just as seriously as we take pouring the perfect pint. Our ‘Rocket Espresso’ is an 100% Arabica blend from our friends at Extract Coffee Roasters, who work with a co-operative project benefiting families in Peru. It’s delicious as well as ethical, with a natural sweetness complemented by full-bodied notes of chocolate and caramel.

Our Beers

Drink in the taste of the Dorset countryside by sampling our Badger beers, which were first brewed by local farmer Charles Hall in 1777. Created from hops, malted barley, and pure spring water that’s naturally filtered through the chalk downs of Dorset, they’re a firm favourite. At The Holly Blue, we offer a full, distinctive and delicious range, including our new Outland beers, which are imaginatively flavoured, and far from ordinary.
