The CLA and New Forest National Park Authority Awards 2017

Shortlisted for Best Supporter of Local Produce Award

As one of the finest New Forest restaurants, we pride ourselves on blending local ingredients with flavours that can be enjoyed by all who visit the area. Our ethos is all about maintaining the utmost respect for the seasons and our produce. We are therefore delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for Best Supporter of Local Produce Award at this year’s CLA and New Forest National Park Authority Awards 2017.

Designed to showcase the outstanding contribution made by those who live and work within New Forest to conserving the landscape and traditions of our beautiful area, we’re honoured that our passion for supporting everything local has garnered attention.

Robert Crosthwaite Eyre, our owner is overjoyed that we have made the shortlist.

“The Inn has been part of our family for over 200 years, so we’re naturally very committed to using local produce from the Forest. Not only within our seasonal menus, but also in other ways including our New Forest Spring Water and New Forest Chocolates that we offer to guests upon their visit.”

Our award-winning kitchen team compiles some of the best menus in the area – and we think our award nomination takes us to the next level. As one of the best places to eat in the New Forest, we’re happy to share our seasonal advice so be sure to read our experts’ blog that proudly showcases our countryside’s food heritage. Not content with just using the produce, we go one step further; we always thinking up new fairs and events to put on with local growers and artisan crafts, so if this is something you think you would enjoy you don’t want to miss our Christmas shopping event that is taking place later this year on Thursday 30th November!

Regardless of the outcome of the awards, we are always committed to finding new and innovative ways to showcase our passion for supporting the local area. After all, it’s what has made the Inn so popular and is the foundation of our success.

When will the winner be announced?

The winners of the 2017 CLA and New Forest National Park Authority Awards are due to be announced on Wednesday 26th July at the New Forest Show, and we wish everyone nominated the best of luck.
