The Monmouth Ash
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Just a stone’s throw from the popular Moors Valley Country Park and Forest, tucked away in the petite town of Verwood, The Monmouth Ash is a treasure just waiting to be discovered. It’s a great option whether you’re looking for a delicious family meal or simply fancy a refreshing drink with friends. When the New Forest sun pokes its head out from the clouds, the spacious patio is perfect for al fresco dining, with outdoor heaters if things turn a little chilly.
The smart exterior is a welcoming sight, and a private car park makes this a convenient destination to escape to. Inside, we discovered a cosy, bucolic interior complete with wooden beams, bookcases and a crackling log fire.
The menu features a range of tempting dishes that are cooked to perfection by the excellent chef and presented beautifully. I enjoyed a memorably delicious meal, starting with a tasty prawn and avocado cocktail followed by sumptuous vegan meatballs made with ground almonds, tempeh, oregano and vegan Cheddar and served in rich marinara sauce with linguine. My partner was equally impressed with the honey-roasted ham served with a brace of eggs, triple-cooked chips and picalilli, and we finished with deliciously smooth cappucinos. Book a table or drop by and discover this hidden gem – you’re bound to be impressed.
