Proudfoot & Co in Winchester is serving up drinks #ForTheBoldandCurious derived from foraged, fermented and barrel aged goods.
Owner Eoghan is an expert in all things botanical and foraged and a whizz at inventing, rediscovering and reinterpreting drinks to devour.
‘Life should be full of constant discovery’ is Proudfoot’s tag line, which I couldn’t agree more with. If you like something a bit different and want to discover something new then this one’s going to be right up your street.
I totally fell in love with this place, from the wildly knowledgable owner, the pretty interior and truly unique and incredible drinks…

ad* Nestled in the leafy Hampshire village of Otterbourne is the beautiful country pub and restaurant The Old Forge.
It’s recently just opened after undergoing a major transformation and I fell in love with the dreamy velvet, rich tones and metallic finishing touches.
This in addition to the open fireplaces, exposed brickwork and low beamed ceilings make it the perfect winter hideaway!
The mix of traditional English pub and luxury interior is a winning combination and I am so into its cosy vibes. With the festive season kicking in, it’s good to have a few places like up your sleeve when you’re looking for places to visit with friends and family.
I was invited to take a look around and try the new menu, take a look…
