From its birth as a farm diversification project back in 2008, Hattingley Valley has grown to become one of the leading wineries in the UK, based in rural Hampshire. The Robinson family made their initial steps in 2008 by planting the first vineyard on some of their farmland but had no idea that it would lead to where they are now. Hattingley Valley has a remarkable 600 tonne capacity, eco-friendly winery that was purpose built under the guidance of Head Winemaker and Director, Emma Rice.

Hattingley Valley has quickly established itself as one of the UK’s most successful wineries, winning over 100 medals, 13 trophies, and three Best in Class for its English sparkling wines. It is recognised for its innovative and dynamic approach to winemaking, with award-winning English sparkling wines enjoyed throughout the UK and exported internationally to 16 countries.

Join the team at their bar and raise a glass of award-winning English sparkling wine to cheers Lymington Seafood Festival!


Chewton Glen is a luxury country house hotel and spa located on the edge of the historic New Forest National Park and within easy reach of Christchurch, Bournemouth and Southampton. Newly launched, The Kitchen is a purpose built cookery school and dining complex for enjoying and learning about food and cooking.

Working in association with celebrity chef and Chewton Glen alumnus James Martin, the cookery school will be headed-up by Chef Tutor, Steve Bulmer.  James and Steve have formulated a rolling roster of bespoke and stimulating courses and demonstrations that will inspire, inform, educate and most importantly provide a culinary experience that is packed full of fun and enjoyment. Classes will be hosted by Rob and visiting guest and celebrity chefs, including Tom Kerridge, Atul Kochhar, Richard Corrigan, and, of course, James Martin himself.

In addition to the cookery school, The Kitchen also features a 40-seater informal restaurant, overseen by Chewton Glen Executive Head Chef Luke Matthews and The Kitchen Head Chef Adam Hart. At lunchtime you can watch what’s going on in the cookery school and maybe catch a glimpse of a visiting celebrity chef. The open-plan kitchen with a pizza oven offers a birds eye view of your meal being created, there’s a chef’s table for private dining and celebrations, an informal lounge, an outside seating area and private parking.
