Large garden with summer bar and children's play area

In the summer our enormous garden comes into its own, with lots of tables in the sunshine and a superb play area for the children.

We also have a covered summer bar area with plenty of seating. Thats's where we hold our quiz nights when the weather is kind. Bank Holiday weekends we usually have live music in the garden and the BBQ going. And in August we hold our annual Beer Festival with a host of ales to try.

Cyclists welcome

Several cycling groups visit us regularly, lots of bike routes pass the pub - as well as our forest tracks, do enjoy our local lanes and the views from there of the Solent and Beaulieu River. But, when you arrive in need of ale and sustenance, please don't lean bikes against the fence!

Well behaved dogs

Well behaved dogs are welcome on leads. Water is always available and suitable doggy treats are available at the bar.

Donkeys and ponies on the doorstep

East Boldre has a very large donkey contingent and our visitors love to watch them - especially with their foals! As for the ponies well they're everywhere too!

Some of the best sunsets

Winter and spring sunsets viewed across the heath from East Boldre are spectacular, whilst those over nearby Hatchet Pond draw photographers from afar. On summer evenings you can enjoy the last of the sun from the pub garden.

Great pub walks

  • Great Dog Friendly Pub


    We stayed in East Boldre again this week with our four Labradors and used the Turfcutters on several occasions as it was within walking distance of our accommodation. We and the dogs were made to feel so welcome it felt like it was our own local nothing was too much trouble and on Thursday we were even asked by some locals to join their quiz team. Great week thanks to all the staff.

    The food is amazing! The atmosphere is friendly but most of all whenever I go I take my dog Bingo who always gets the biggest fuss made of him. Perfect location for a New Forest walk too!

  • Brilliant dog friendly pub


    Daisy and Chewie love the Turfs, it's a brilliant country pub where dogs are totally welcomed inside and out and always plenty of water bowls in the garden.
