New Forest Picnic Perfection


Fancy venturing out into the wood for a picnic in the New Forest?

Taking to the great outdoors with a freshly prepared New Forest picnic is a great summertime tradition in these parts – it tastes even better when someone else has made it for you!

If you’re staying at The Bell Inn, we can take the hard work out of picnic preparation and pack the perfect New Forest picnic for you to take away. Whether you want to enjoy yours exploring the best picnic spots of the New Forest, walking the dog, or simply for your homeward journey, we can make you a picnic to remember.

Our New Forest Picnic includes:

  • A delicious, homemade cobb roll (fillings include; chicken club, Lyburn cheese, ham, or smoked salmon)
  • Bottle of New Forest Water
  • Fresh fruit
  • Crisps
  • A New Forest chocolate bar

If you’re planning on working up an appetite, additional items such as our famous homemade Bell Inn port scratchings, homemade sausage rolls, scones, and scotch eggs, plus soft drinks, can be added to your picnic for a small additional charge. Fancy a boozy lunch? We can easily add a bottle of fizz or a cool, crisp bottle of wine locally sourced from the New Forest!

Cool bags and ice packs are also available (a small deposit is required, refundable on return).

Picnics start from £9 per person
