Your guide to the best food & drink independents in Hampshire

From the magical New Forest to the stunning South Downs, with the historic ports of Southampton and Portsmouth in between, Hampshire is not only beautiful but full of outstanding food and drink businesses. If you know where to look you’ll find great seafood restaurants, country pubs, street-food producers, farm shops, strawberry growers, pig farmers, delis, tearooms and more. Hampshire produced Charles Dickens and Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and it has a fine food heritage, too. We’re just starting out in this county under editor and New Forest resident Penny Hopkins. Expect more of her recommendations soon.
