eat local, grow local
Duncan and I went out, as it was our anniversary, and popped down to the Mayflower in Lymington. I don't recall seeing local food on the menu before, however was pleasantly surprised. There were IOW burgers and sausages on the main menu, and also New Forest Biscotti with the chocolate pot! Biscotti, by their very nature are very hard, and it wouldn't have suited everyone, however, never one to say no to chocolate, and still with my own set of enamels I really enjoyed it. May be a complimentary shot of Amaretto or coffee liqueur would have helped them soften! On my way out, I noticed that Spice n Easy had a display of their chutneys on the counter too. I have added the Mayflower to our local food map.
I know locally, that the Fisherman's Rest also has local New Forest Marque items on the menu, as do the other 5-6 Fullers pubs in the Forest - White Buck, Alice Lisle, Oak Inn and New Forest Hotel.
My favourite is still the Lyburn cheese platter they sell at the Royal Oak, Fritham - What's Yours?
