Set yourself up for a New Forest day out in style – with a spectacular brunch at one of the Forest’s most beautiful hotels.
At the end of the atmospheric Ornamental Drive, with its towering redwoods and copper beech trees, Rhinefield House Hotel is waiting to lay a feast before you.
Start it right with a Bucks Fizz before beginning your brunch experience with a sumptuous selection of New Forest artisan jams and breads, local cheese and cold meats, yogurts and fruit juice followed by a cooked-to-order New Forest breakfast with all produce locally sourced.
And of course you’ll be lavished with the finest teas and coffees. Because it wouldn’t be breakfast without them and a newspaper of course!
More about Rhinefield House Hotel
Tucked away on the Rhinefield Ornamental Drive sits Rhinefield House. In this magical setting, this striking blend of Tudor and Gothic architecture set against giant Columbian redwoods creates a unique venue.
The formal restaurant, The Armada is complemented by a less formal Grill Room and a lounge which hosts afternoon teas with spectacular views.
Tuesday 1 November, 7:30am - 9:30am
Business men and women from across the New Forest and beyond will meet for a New Forest Breakfast on Tuesday 1 November. The addition of gin is not a sign of the times - but an introduction to one of the Forest’s latest and most exciting businesses.
From an old Victorian laundry on the backstreets of Bournemouth, entrepreneur and Conker Spirit founder, Rupert Holloway, has become Dorset’s first independent gin distiller. Beginning the journey only 3 years ago, after losing the love for his career as a chartered surveyor, Rupert had the lightbulb moment of producing a beautifully crafted spirit representative of his local landscape.
He will be speaking at the Business Breakfast, sponsored by The New Forest Business Partnership, taking us on the road which brought him to Conker - and the exciting path he has trodden as he has developed the product and the business.
His success is about spirit in every sense of the word - so there will also be a chance to taste his gin - its ok at 8am when it’s for business!
At this event their will also be a talk from Chewton Glen on the James Martin Cookery School - opening on 1st December 2016.
30-31 October & 5-6 November, 9.30-11.30am

George Egg - Anarchist Cook
Forest Arts Centre
Wednesday 2 November, 7.30pm
If you like food, you'll love this. Internationally acclaimed comedian George Egg is also a rather fanatical self-taught cook with a somewhat anarchic approach to making meals. As obsessed with culinary matters as he is with comedic ones, and finding himself dissatisfied with the quality and cost of takeaways and room-service meals while touring the stand-up comedy clubs of the world, George embarks on a project to take matters into his own surprisingly capable hands. A surreal and absurd mix of stand-up comedy and striking innovation.
Warning: Comedy may contain adult themes & language. Ages 16+.
