The Forest Foodie was set up to bridge the gap between so many brilliant local makers, bakers, farmers, growers, and suppliers with those visiting our uniquely special corner of England, The New Forest. We supply and deliver Hampers & Picnics and 3 Course Dinners packed with fresh, locally sourced produce to locals, yachts and holiday makers around Lymington and The New Forest.
We are delighted to have just won 'Business of the Year 2021-22' AND 'Food & Drink Business of the Year 2021-22' in December 2021, at the New Forest Brilliance in Business Awards.
Our fresh hampers range from traditional picnics/afternoon tea with homemade sarnies, sausage rolls, scones with clotted cream and local jam to local cheese, charcuterie and New Forest wine. For seafood lovers we work with some great local fishermen. Our 'Solent' Hamper is our signature - featuring lobster, fillet of beef, crevettes and Hampshire Sparkling Wine, and the Salterns Hamper features Lobster, Crab, Mango Chilli Salsa and local Sparkling Wine.
For the perfect gift why not send a Taste of The New Forest with one of our Gift Hampers in a wicker basket - we can send these UK wide with non perishable goodies such as local honey, jam, shortbread, fudge, biscotti and wine.
We also deliver 3 course dinners to your home. These range from Smoked Salmon Mousse, Beef Wellington with Truffle Mash, Red Wine Jus and Local Asparagus with Sea Salt Chocolate Tart, to Mac 'n' Cheese for kids, Slow Cooked Crispy Duck Leg with Dauphinoise, to Monkfish En Papillote. We have a new menu each week but happy to discuss menus much futher in adcance if you have a date in mind.
At The Forest Foodie, we aspire to work as sustainably and responsibly as we possibly can, by supporting a local farmer, grower, baker, cheesemaker or craftsman. You’re also helping with the circular economy within the New Forest to make it a better, cleaner, more eco-friendly place.
Do get in touch if we can help, if you have something specific in mind, have any dietery requirements or would just like to say hello to find out more.

* Open Tuesday-Sunday. We ask for a minimum of 48 hours notice where possible - but we'll be as flexible as possible where we can. Everything is bought, prepared and made fresh to order hence needing a little time to put it all together for you. Peak times get very booked up so do book ahead!
