Another New Eatery

At midday I kept a dental hygienist’s appointment with Bronya at Birchfield Dental Practice, after which we brunched at New Forest Emporium Café at Newlands Manor Farm.

As is now customary, Jackie produced the photographs.

Here are the Brunch and Lunch Menus;

a selection of interior views;

various wall decorations and


cakes on display;

and containers on the tables.

Our choices were cooked to order. Therefore there was a more than acceptable wait balanced against the quite superb quality of the very fresh food at most reasonable prices.

Jackie pointed out that the cheddar in her tuna and cheese panini was mature – not the bland variety one would normally expect.

This was perfectly matched by the taste of the ingredients in my Big Beauty Breakfast. Where else would I find cherry vine tomatoes and sublimely tasting mushrooms with sausages of the quality of those of Ferndene on a café plate.

The service was friendly and efficient. The waitress, a former nurse, offered to help each of us out of our very low armchairs – I availed myself of this and it was most professionally done.

Local radio was playing on the radio.

While we were waiting Jackie had also wandered around the outside.

Afterwards we took a trip to Hatchet Pond and back.

The first five of these pictures are Jackie’s; the next four, mine.

This evening we dined on scrambled egg, baked beans, salad, and toast.


  1. Wow, I would like to sample the food at this new location, the menu is great! Lovely photos today, guys! ????❤️

  2. A great set of photos from you both! Lunch sounds wonderful, and the service excellent. You seem to have lots of good choices for eating out not far from home.

    1. We are definitely spoilt for choice. And we are currently receiving a plethora of Indian takeaway leaflets. Thank you very much from us both, Lavinia.

  3. Your English breakfast looked like a perfect size for portions. I’ve seen other photos of this breakfast where the quantities of food were perfect for a heavy laborer.

    1. Thank you very much, Doug. In my more active years that would have been my kind of portion

  4. You are both very good at leaving a positive impression of your eating places of choice. Lovely pictures all. You have been omitting your beverages of late … given up?

  5. Oh! Wonderful photos, Jackie and Derrick! What a beautiful place to dine…beautiful outside and inside! Inside has such cool decor, artwork, place settings…oh, and the food! Can’t forget that food! 🙂
    I’ll have The Small Veggie Breakfast, please!
    (((HUGS))) ❤️❤️

    1. Someone on the next table had. It was a plentiful meal in itself. Thanks very much, GP

  6. As you say, it never rains but it pours copy for SD. Thank you, Derrick.
    It looks lovely. The only time I’ve had tomatoes on the vine served with breakfast was at a newly opened up market garden centre restaurant last year

    1. There were a couple of others that would have done, but we didn’t notice them until we’d sat down 🙂 Thank you very much, Riba

    1. We really are – a great benefit of living in a holiday location. Thanks very much, Sheree
