We found this lovely bar, cafe, restaurant in the town of ring wood during a weekend break in the new forest. We thought we would find somewhere to have breakfast in ring wood. A little walk along the high street and very little was open but Frampton's stuck out with a business and and Sunday morning bustle. had a good feel on entrance with lots of people drinking, eating and reading the newspapers.
Unfortunately breakfast was no longer on the menu despite it only be 11 45 and the menu stating it was served till 12. Sometimes it is so disappointing when you look forward to something so much . The waitress said the kitchen wasn,t doing breakfast as the kitchen had closed and only dinner was being served. So much for customer service. Very disappointed but we still enjoyed our coffees , just would have liked to think that the cook could rustle up a few breakfast sandwiches.
never mind as it looks a great place and somewhere to visit.

This was my 3rd time here, and every time I go the staff are the same (must be well managed) and the whole team are just lovely. Food and service great, not too fussy but you're never left waiting. Definitely my fav pub/restaurant in Ringwood. Lovely fresh food, great service and relaxed atmosphere.

If you'r in Ringwood.do take the time to visit Frampton Bar. Wonderful atmosphere,in attractive surroundings with more than a touch of old world charm. Attentive staff that treat you the same if you have just a coffee or order a meal. we popped in for brunch & had the most amazing Scambled eggs! What more you could you want.

Framptons is an interesting combination of coffee shop, bistro, pub and restaurant. They've got the décor just right - a sort of slightly jokey retro shabby chic look. You can get a good breakfast, coffee and cake, lunch, dinner or just a drinks. The beer from the local brewery is good, and the food from the short menu is generally pretty good too, though not exactly cheap. On a good day it's great.

The only issue is the service which is somewhat variable. On a good day it can be exemplary, on a bad one very poor, with tables left uncleared and customers waiting for ages and being ignored.

If the service was consistently good I would give it 5 stars, because there's nowhere else nearby which gets the formula right in so many ways.

I have just had an amazing Sunday roast at Framptons with my husband, daughter and son in law. The roast meat, we ordered beef, is served on a wooden carving board along with the roast potatoes, peas and gravy. In separate serving dishes were roast parsnips, roast carrots, cauliflower with white sauce and Yorkshire puddings. I am fussy about roast dinner and have in the past been disappointed when ordering it in restaurants and pubs but I could not fault this one it was delicious. I love the way it is served it's like being at home but without the preparation and cooking! Well done Framptons.
