Welcome to The Forest Foodie!
The Forest Foodie was born out of a passion for delicious and locally sourced food. In the New Forest, we are lucky to have some of the finest ingredients from land and sea, right on our doorstep and we wanted to share this love with all those visiting our uniquely special corner of England.
Whether you are coming by land to holiday cottages and glamping spots, or by sea to our world famous sailing town in Lymington, we can cater for you.

We are accredited by The New Forest Marque (the sign of true local produce) and proud members of Hampshire Fare - championing supporting local. For us, supporting small local businesses could not be more important, especially in current times. We have teamed up with over 40 wonderful local suppliers and producers from local cheese makers, to local vineyards, fishermen, New Forest Commoners for free-range meat and an award winning, world class chocolatier, to name a few. As we grow, so do our suppliers.
We aspire to work as sustainably and responsibly as we possibly can. Every purchase you make from us will be supporting a local farmer, grower, baker, cheese maker or craftsman. Where possible we use plant based packaging and our picnics are delivered in cardboard boxes with natural sheep's wool liners. By supporting us you will also be helping with the circular economy within the New Forest to make it a better, cleaner, more eco friendly place.
We are aspiring to be a B-Corp certified business in 2023.
We are small and nimble. Give us a shout if you have something specific in mind, we would love to help!
