Bar - Peel Forest Cafe and Bar
Peel Forest Bar

We adore our intimate bar in Peel Forest. It’s a place where locals meet to chat about their week on the farm over a pint and a feed and where visitors from outside the region are welcomed with smiles, witty banter and great entertainment.

There’s a feeling you get when you enter the Peel Forest Bar, one that reminds you of a local pub in England, a good old fashioned country pub with an intimate homely setting. Cosy space to rest weary trampers, farmers and travellers, the best craft beer collection in South Canterbury and fantastic local live entertainment most Saturday nights.

So whether you’re in for a beer by the fire, a tasty nibble or hearty feast, quiz night or live entertainment – we’d love to see you and show you why the Peel Forest Café and Bar is the best little bar around.

We also cater for private functions, so please don’t hesitate to .

Open Wednesday – Saturday 6pm till late
