~ About Us ~

The Happy Cheese is a friendly family pub, serving food all day. Just a stone's throw away from Ashurst train station and just over the bridge from the Ashurst Campsite. There is an entrance to the beautiful New Forest next to the rear of our large car park.

Enjoy our comfy pub with brilliant food and service. We are dog friendly with a kid's play area and log fire. Our brilliant chef serves his own homemade specials. On Sundays we have an irrestistable carvery.

Went to the Happy Cheese to have a lunch date with my two friends and all our dogs. We had 5 dogs between us. We were welcomed by friendly staff and the dogs were also welcomed. We found a table with plenty of floor space so we could eat in the knowledge that the dogs had plenty of room to lie down. The food was lovely and so filling. I would have ordered a dessert, but was full up from the lunch! The staff were pleasant and helpful and bought drinks to the table when asked during our meal also to save us getting up and disturbing the sleeping pooches :). The toilets were clean with soap and paper. I really had a lovely time with my friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you for a lovely relaxing meal.
