Perfect pork & pannage pigs
3rd November | £60 per person
From 31st October - 6th November the New Forest is celebrating it's amazing producing and food heroes with a week of delicious events.
Although pannage pork is not available to eat until January, we wanted to celebrate this custom during the New Forest Food Festival by featuring pork from one of our pannage suppliers on our menu. In September, pigs are turned out onto the Forest for 60 days to feast on acorns. Not only does this protect the New Forest ponies, it creates the most delicious tasting pork too.
Head Chef Alistair Craig has created a 6 course tasting menu to celebrate autumn in the New Forest; expect Pondhead Farm Saddleback Pork, crab from Lymington and seasonal vegetables from Exbury, amongst other local delicacies.
