Get a taste of the New Forest where locally produced and caught food takes pride of place on the menu.
Pork, beef, mushrooms, cheese, crabs and honey – we could go on for much longer about the fresh local foods produced in the New Forest. There are plenty of restaurants with Michelin stars and AA rosettes to choose from, and many of them insist on fresh local produce.
To really sample the Forest’s tastiest offerings, pick shops and restaurants that display the blue New Forest Marque. The Marque helps you identify authentic, high-quality New Forest fare. A variety of outlets are licensed to carry the mark, from renowned destination hotels to cheesemakers and pubs.
By selecting local food that is fresh and in season, you help the forest to stay special by supporting the local economy and New Forest producers, and also reducing the impact that food production has on the environment. Guilt-free food.
