Forget Indian and Chinese food, the new international cuisine of choice is English Food! In an article by the BBC, Caroline Stacey wrote how UK restaurants are seeing a revival of interest in English food and local produce. This is certainly the case for New Forest restaurant The Glasshouse in Lyndhurst – which has produced a sumptuous menu created with produce from the local area and are seeing customers flock to sample the British cuisine.

In 2006 a survey was carried out which showed that almost two-thirds of shoppers prefer locally produced food, as they believe it is fresher and helps the local economy. Three quarters of consumers also wanted to see locally sourced food named on menus – which is exactly what The Glasshouse is doing with its three course menu.

Head Chef Richard Turner says; “People are starting to recognise that English cuisine is just as tasty and diverse as the foreign cuisine we’re all used to when eating out – it’s not just fish and chips anymore! I have developed a menu filled with fresh, local, seasonal ingredients that is prepared to a high standard and served in a contemporary and welcoming restaurant.”

Restaurant Manager Matt Magee adds; “With the environment becoming a real concern for people, eating at a restaurant that is helping the local economy is proving to be a big ‘pull’ for customers coming to The Glasshouse, as is of course the quality of the cuisine served”.

The Glasshouse opened in June this year to rave reviews for Richard Turner’s menu. Richard has worked in kitchens all over the world, earning him 2AA rosettes for innovation, technical skill and the skills to balance and combine ingredients. Despite working internationally, the diverse nature of British food has brought him back to the New Forest and to The Glasshouse.

The Glasshouse Restaurant is open Tuesday to Saturday for lunch and dinner. The delectable three course set menu is £30 per head, offering superb value for money for the finest local ingredients served in a contemporary atmosphere. For reservations call 02380 286129. Visit for more information.
