The Ferryman in Lymington is a true country inn with a fine dining restaurant and a well-stocked homely bar. 

Tucked away in the little village of Walhampton, just a stones throw from Lymington, with the beautiful countryside of the New Forest on our doorstep, we use the freshest ingredients possible, straight from field to fork. Our close proximity to the coast also grants us access to the finest British seafood. The menu includes inspired, relaxed versions of British classics that reflect the flavours and ingredients of each season. We want someone to join our family and come on our journey of food.


Ideal candidates will be mad about food and have bags of drive and energy.
