Fine dining and great New Forest pub food
Delicious dining at “locals” pub the Turfcutters Arms - which appeals very much also to visitors
Game Night at the Turfcutters a couple of weeks ago (20 February) proved to be fine dining too in the always relaxed, convivial forest setting - warm and welcoming whatever the weather. For those of us not yet vegan, a veritable feast treat!
And a reminder if any were needed, of what a fabulous pub this is! (The best pub in the New Forest?)
It was also good "sport" to see the looks on the faces of people as they came in thinking they were coming to a “Games” rather than a “Game” night…
It’s a bit unusual to take on two courses of game in one meal and even go on to manage a dessert too, but so cleverly planned, prepared and served was each and every item on the menu (our group between us tried them all) that the whole was a very definite vote for greater than the sum of the parts.
A warm welcome from Simon, Ged and the brilliant team always awaits all comers - including cheery fire in the hearth on all but the hottest days of the year.
Well behaved canine companions are included inside and out with treats on the bar – the accolade of New Forest Dog Friendly Pub of the Year is well deserved!
The Turfs Facebook page says it all, with compliments pouring in daily! From the Murder Mystery on Valentine’s night (what a great idea!) “Brilliant night, lovely food great entertainment, excellent staff ...would definitely recommend. Can't wait to return. Absolutely brilliant.”
