Welcome

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.


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.

Forum Lager

Introducing Forum, the brand new lager from Hall & Woodhouse.

Forum is a 4.2% refreshing Helles style lager, with a delicate flavour from the Weihenstephan yeast and a subtle fruity lemon character from Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon hops.

The name refers not only to Blandford Forum, the location of the H&W brewery where this new, exciting lager is brewed, but also to a meeting or gathering where ideas and views can be exchanged.  And where better to meet and put the world to rights than in a traditional British pub, where you can enjoy this refreshing drink with friends and family.

So what are you waiting for, make sure you try a pint next time you visit.
