New Forest Food & Drink Fortnight

3rd November 2019 - 16th November 2019

It’s here – our annual celebration of Food and Drink in the New Forest is back for the third time… and this time as New Forest Food and Drink Fortnight – from Sunday 3rd to Saturday 16th November!

Throughout the fortnight we will be celebrating all of our fantastic Food and Drink in the New Forest! There are so many local producers who work hard every day to produce a delicious range of food and drink such as cheese, fudge, honey and even ale across the forest in addition to our fantastic farmers who provide delicious fruit, veg and other delicious produce. And all of this produce is turned into fabulous, mouth-watering dishes by our talented and passionate chefs, cooks and bakers and local residents creating their own recipes!

You will be surprised to find out how many pubs, restaurants and cafes/tearooms across the forest use local produce in their dishes, and the drinks they serve too. Head to one of our eateries during our New Forest Food & Drink Fortnight and enjoy some delicious food and celebrate with us!

There are a range of themes to whet your appetite – we suggest that you choose a couple of themes that you like the look of and try out some food and drink that fit with the theme, or book on and go to one of the events happening for that particular theme during the fortnight.

The 15 themes for this year are;

  • Cheese and the Forest Larder
  • Firework Night Feasts
