Welcome

A traditional country pub at the heart of the community

We are currently closed for a stunning refurbishment we re-open again the week of the 18th November.

Unfortunately, until the refurbishment is completed we are unable to take any bookings for December and Christmas, if you would like to dine with us when re-open, please contact us through our Facebook page.

Located in the town of Verwood between the New Forest and Cranborne Chase, the Monmouth Ash is a perfect example of a friendly, quality English village pub that we all know and love.  Steeped in history it still has a lot of its original features like the traditional oak beans, open fires and flagstone floors as well as some more quirky ones.

The pub’s name, unique in Britain, commemorates the 1685 capture of the Duke of Monmouth (Charles II’s bastard son) in Verwood, after his rebellion was defeated.  Legend has it that the Duke was captured after his clothes were found below an Ash tree.


Opening Times

Monday - Saturday: 11:00am - 11:30pm
Sunday: noon - 11:00pm

Others come – they stay for a while, they flourish, they build – and they go. It is their way. But we remain. We are an enduring lot… we wait, and are patient, and back we come. And so it will ever be.

Our delicious ‘Rocket Espresso’ has come from our friends at Extract Coffee Roasters. It’s a combination of fantastic coffee and good ethics. This particular blend comprises 100% Arabica coffee beans from one farm in Colombia and a co-operative project in Peru, who work to directly benefit the families and communities involved.
