The New Forest
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Ensconced in the New Forest at the edge of the charming village of Ashurst, this excellent establishment provides the perfect base for those exploring the beautiful surrounding area. Relax with a pint of ale in the cosy bar or take your refreshments outside to the extensive garden and enjoy the stunning vistas. The pub is as dog-friendly as they come, making it the perfect pit-stop for those exploring the New Forest National Park with their canine companion in-tow.
Those dining have a range of tasty dishes to choose from, and everything is made from scratch using fresh, seasonal produce that’s locally sourced wherever possible. For a relaxed grazing meal, opt for a sharing board like the bar board, comprising Cornish Orchards sausage roll, pork pie, pork scratchings, Fuller’s black pudding Scotch egg, apple sauce, piccalilli and fresh bread, or plump for a selection of small plates to sample a range of flavours. Options include tempura king prawns with Japanese mayo and salt and pepper squid with smoked paprika aioli. For
a more traditional choice, the Fuller’s Frontier-battered fish and chips with crushed peas and tartare sauce comes highly recommended, and you won’t want to miss out on the phenomenal roast served on Sundays. The decision to hold your event here – be it large or small – is a smart one, as The New Forest boasts an airy conservatory and spacious garden, both of which afford glorious views across the forest and are available for private hire.
