A traditional country pub at the heart of the community
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.

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.
