About the Turfcutters Arms

The Turfcutters Arms is a traditional New Forest Pub with a large garden and ample parking which welcomes well behaved dogs and children.  The pub serves an extensive range of  real ales and excellent well priced wines, over 80 malt whiskeys and Gales Fruit Wines.  The varied food menu with daily specials is updated regularly including seasonal specialities.  There's live music many Friday nights and Sunday afternoons. The pub also has 3 very popular B&B rooms.

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

If you check out our website you'll find a couple of good walks described. And some interesting information about East Boldre too - it's a fascinating forest village with absolutely tons of local history.

Whatever time of the year, week and day we're here to welcome you.
