The Club Bar
The well stocked bar includes local cask ales - Ringwood Best and Fortyniner are our regular bitters. Prices for all drinks are kept as low as possible for the benefit of our members. There is a good selection of soft drinks and low alcohol beers. The bar is largely staffed by volunteers.
The modern and spacious hall is adjacent to the bar area. The room is available for hire for private functions (weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties etc.) from only £30 per night. The skittle alley can also be booked for a small charge (up to a maximum of £20 depending on numbers). For further information or to make a booking, please ask at the bar or contact Ann Adams on (01725) 552675. Please note that to comply with Club Rules, a list of non-members attending the function must be provided at least 3 days before the event. The hall has a fire limit capacity of 200 persons.
Books and newspapers
Local newspapers are provided for reading in the Club. A second hand book stall was introduced in 2005, which has proved very popular (and helps raise Club funds!).
The Club welcomes families with children of all ages in the bar area and hall. There is a pool table available for children to use. We do respectfully ask however, for the benefit of all members, that parents supervise their children's behaviour whilst on the premises.

Looking to the Future
Martin Club is the only food, drink and entertainment establishment in the parish. Pubs and Clubs in rural areas are facing hard times financially. In order to provide our services, Martin Club Ltd relies on the help and goodwill of many individuals who generously give time and effort to keep the Club maintained and managed. By visiting the Club regularly and supporting our functions and fundraising events, members help to safeguard the Club's future for generations to come.
