Welcome to Pooh Corner
Pooh Corner is situated on the edge of the Ashdown Forest in Hartfield, East Sussex. The perfect stop for either the casual visitor or the die hard fan of A.A. Milne’s most famous creation, Winnie the Pooh and his friends whose stories came to life just a short walk away in the 100 Acre Wood! So whether you come for a drink or something to eat (honey is always on the menu!) you’ll find yourself busy doing nothing in no time!

The Enchanted Places – Christopher Milne
“Subsequent trips included our weekly visit to Hartfield, a mile away along a main road, up a steep hill, down a steep hill and in at the first shop on the left hand side. Jessica (my donkey) needed no urging and the woman behind the counter no instructions. It was a pennyworth of bullseyes for each of us.”
We have a new menu for 2019. Full of some old favourites and some new tastes to enjoy. Our Dairy Ice Cream Milkshakes are sure to satisfy and we cater for all dietary requirements as much as possible with Gluten Free, Vegetarian and Vegan options available.
However this is just the start. As we progress through 2019 and complete our works to the new Pooh Corner kitchen area we’ll be introducing a larger menu with some amazing new dishes. So please stay tuned…
