Proudfoot & Co – British Drinks Innovators in Winchester

Proudfoot & Co – British Drinks Innovators in Winchester

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…

Walk the Winchester Water Meadows

Walk the Winchester Water Meadows

Just off the high street you can walk a loop and discover the Winchester Water Meadows.

It’s an easy walk that follows the River Itchen and leads to some of the best hidden parts of the city. The walk takes in part of the South Downs Way, the Clarendon Way, Wolvesey Castle, the Hospital of St. Cross, the Itchen Navigation path, St. Catherine’s Hill.

The water meadows inspired Keats to write ‘To Autumn’, you know the one, imagine this in a rather loud and grandiose overly dramatic style… “Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness…”

With such a beautiful landscape on display you can see why he was motivated to write such pretty verse.

Get a slice of quintessential English countryside, history and explore Winchester in a totally new way.

The Yard at Chilton Candover, Alresford

The Yard at Chilton Candover, Alresford

Right in the heart of the Candover Valley is The Yard, a cafe offering a unique location for a coffee, food and curated special events.

The stunning chic converted barn, outdoor yard and friendly, relaxed atmosphere are just a couple of the reasons you’ll fall in love with the place.

I spent a morning tucking into savoury treats, sipping coffee and enjoying the sun as the farm’s resident swallows ducked and dived over my head.

Here’s why I’d urge you to travel into the centre of Hampshire to discover The Yard…

Mi Cocina Mexican Food, Winchester

Mi Cocina Mexican Food, Winchester

Mi Cocina is one of the good things to have come out of the lockdown of 2020.

The new Mexican food takeaway has popped up at Bridge Street House in Winchester and I am a BIG fan. The city seriously lacks this type of cuisine. I am always in the mood for Mexican, one of my all time favourite foods. 🇲🇽

The food is simply incredible, take a look…

King Arthur’s Round Table in The Great Hall, Winchester

King Arthur’s Round Table in The Great Hall, Winchester

The Great Hall in Winchester is home to one of the greatest symbols of medieval mythology…King Arthur’s Round Table!

Surrounded by the remains of Winchester Castle, built by William the Conquerer no less, it is an iconic piece of the city that’s tucked away at the top of the high street.

It’s definitely another tick off the bucket list for me and I am so glad I found it, I’m not a big history buff but, King Arthur’s table is seriously impressive!
