A friendly pub-restaurant on the edge of the New Forest National Park the Monmouth Ash is the perfect venue for drinks, lunch and dinner.

We use regional food partners, typically from family businesses like us, who provide us with quality ingredients that our team of talented chefs (not microwave technicians!) use to create fresh, unpretentious, seasonal dishes.

Situated on the edge of the New Forest National Park, the Monmouth Ash is convenient for Bournemouth and perfect for exploring Moors Valley Country Park.

However, Sunday 15th Oct I had the beef roast and it wasn't at all tasty; the Yorkshire pudding was stale and tasted as though it had been at the bottom of a freezer for a long time. The vegetables (especially leeks) were very crunchy to the point where they seemed raw - I'm usually very fond of crunchy vegetables. The potatoes were just round balls of oil with very little potato inside. The meat was chewy and tasteless. I wouldn't be so disappointed if the restaurant were busy however it wasn't.

No dessert or coffee was offered. After receiving the bill we didn't see the waitress again. Other customers asked for coffee just after 9 and were told the machine had been turned off. Unfortunately the service (or lack of) makes this a disappointing place to eat.

We had lovely meals including one vegetarian meal which was just too much to eat - unlike some restaurants who think veggies don't eat and only provide skimpy meals. The waiting staff were excellent - not too clingy but available when required.

The food we did have was fine, however we had to ask twice to two different people for the bill. Again considering they were quiet this was a shame.

Within walking distance is a bonus. The staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them. The only problem I have is trying to decide what to have from such a great, expansive menu! I generally try something different each time and have never been disappointed.

The menu (although sadly now a lot smaller than before) is varied and its always hard to choose. Every meal we've had has been lovely and the atmosphere and staff are great. Thanks for another lovely meal and evening!

The only other fault was the temperature we were sat right next to the radiator which was on full blast, even after trying to turn it down. Plus the fire place was going as well, other parts of the restaurant may have been better. Overall very pleased and will be going back soon.
