Local Dining Out Report for May 2016

Wednesday 25th May 2016

Local Dining Out Report - The New Forest Inn at Emery Down

You can never tell what little gems of restaurants lie around the corner. The New Forest Inn is at Emery Down, just outside of Lyndhurst, not on our doorstep but not too far away. A really excellent pub/restaurant with a nicely presented interior giving a lovely atmosphere. Somewhere to bring your friends for evening dining or just for a drionk.

Entering the bar area we made our way to the restaurant set to one end of the lovely main building.

Having chosen our tables and seating, all laid in the cosy restaurant, we made our way over the short distance to the main bar for drinks.

It was nice to welcome six new diners on their first evening with us and we all had a little time to chat.

 

Our main courses arrived around 8 o'clock. You should have seen the Fish (beer battered haddock) with chipos and peas, marvellous, also the Gammon and the Chicken choices. Other choices were also very good. Our desserts arrived a little later, all very well received, you can see them in the pictures below.

 

During the evening we held our monthly raffle, still in aid of ShelterBox. We had a very good selection of prizes with wine, a book, soaps, a plant, rhubarb, quality street box and a tea towel.

Our thanks to those people who donated prizes. Every prize donated means more money for the Charity. Having added £57.38 to our fund from this raffle we now have a total of £365.48 leaving a balance of £224.52 to raise for our box.

Our thanks go to Ken our driver from Herrington's Coaches for a safe journey and to all the staff at The New Forest Inn for proving us with an excellent evening. I feel sure we will return in the future.

Lastly of course our thanks to everyone who came along and supported our May dinner.

Join us for our next Local Dining Out evening at The Cliff House Hotel at Barton on Sea on Wednesday 29th June. Tickets priced at £27.00 are already selling well!
