Dining alfresco is definitely the best-o in our opinion and you joined us in your hundreds at our Festival Feasting experiences in 2018!

Under canvas communal feasting, all within shimmying distance to the festival action!

Mark Hix's Ruby Murray House

Mark Hix paid homage to the British love of a classic Indian takeaway!

Combining his passion for British ingredients with the authentic flavours of India, Mark’s Ruby Murray House dished up indulgent home-style Indian curry…not forgetting the Naan…topped off with a refreshing Hop House 13 lager or glass of PIG Hut wine!


The Field Kitchen with Angela Hartnett & friends

We got stuck into serious flavour at our long table, family-style feasts.

Angela Hartnett and her chef friends hosted a three course feasting lunch in our mobile Field Kitchen at each of our festivals in 2018.

The Field Kitchen menu included a starter, main and pud per person, created, cooked and even served by the Chefs of the day. 

Angela has overseen the kitchens of Hartnett Holder & Co at Lime Wood, along with Chef Luke Holder for the past 5 years, bringing her down to earth, home-cooked Italian style to the New Forest! She is also a great pal of THE PIGs and Smoked & Uncut!
