For great pub food and a warm New Forest welcome, come along to the Turfcutters Arms: a traditional pub with bed & breakfast accommodation available in our converted thatched barn.
GREAT FOOD SERVED INDOORS & OUTDOORS EVERY DAY
In the New Forest between Lymington, Brockenhurst and Beaulieu, the Turfcutters Arms is situated in the village of East Boldre which is literally “on the forest”. More than just a pub with rooms, we are one of the few remaining traditional New Forest pubs in Hampshire and are famous locally for serving up some of the most outstanding food in the area at very reasonable prices. Including our fantastic value two-course lunch!
DOG AND CHILD FRIENDLY
Here you will find a cosy fireside in the autumn and winter, a large sheltered and enclosed child-friendly pub garden in the summer, and a warm welcome all year round – your canine companions included as long as they’re well behaved.
WITH LOTS OF HISTORY
You will also find oodles of interesting displays on the walls and over your pint can if you will imagine times gone by because the Turfcutters has also been at the centre of lots of fascinating local history!
From the traditional forest digging of peat to the earliest Flying School and the subsequent pilot and plane participation in WW1, the whole of the local heathland area was then covered with wartime activities in WW11. The recently lovingly restored “Beaulieu Letters” which showed pilots the way in to land stand testament and are just a few minutes walk from the pub.
LIVE MUSIC AND EVENTS
Which is partly why, in normal times, alongside our ever-popular Friday night and Sunday afternoon live music we also like to put on seasonal entertainments which conjure up times gone by in the New Forest.
CONVENIENT NEW FOREST LOCATION
We’re only a short drive from Southampton or Bournemouth, so whether you have spent the day sampling the delights of the cities or you’ve been walking, or cycling, through the beautiful countryside of the New Forest National Park, the Turfs makes an ideal place to stop off for refreshment. If you’re attending a function at hotels nearby such as The Montagu Arms Hotel in Beaulieu or The Master Builder’s Hotel in Buckler’s Hard, do give us a call to see if we provide accommodation for you.
Feel free to contact us, get directions or check out our rooms.
