The Thomas Lord, situated in the picturesque West Meon Valley, will offer its customers a true taste of Hampshire this summer when the pub will stage a local outdoor theatre production while serving a special menu crafted with ingredients from the region’s producers to celebrate the 2014 Hampshire Food Festival.

The Dark Earth & the Light Sky will be staged by West Meon Theatre in an Indian-style tent in The Thomas Lord’s stunning pub garden from Wednesday 25 June to Tuesday 2 July at 8pm (excluding Sunday 29 June). Having welcomed West Meon Theatre in 2009 and 2012 for a series of sell-out performances, The Thomas Lord is expecting another rush for tickets to watch this year’s play, which centres on the biographical story of celebrated Hampshire poet Edward Thomas’ final years.

To coincide with the production, The Thomas Lord is also offering both theatre goers and other customers a special ‘Hampshire’s Best Fare’ seasonal menu as part of The Hampshire Food Festival which celebrates the very best food and drink producers from across the county. The menu will feature traditional favourites with a modern twist and boast seasonal fare from local producers and as well as the pub’s own kitchen garden.

Dishes include: Smoked haddock mousse, spelt, celeriac & slow poached egg yolk; braised featherblade of Hampshire beef, turnip, wild garlic, charred asparagus, Jersey royals & smoked onion puree; and Treacle sponge, oat milk, oat & raisin cookie, ale ice cream & treacle butterscotch.

The Hampshire Food Festival runs from 1 to 31 July 2014 and The Thomas Lord’s festival menu will be available throughout (excluding Sundays)*.

Tickets for the theatre production will need to be booked through The West Meon Theatre (www.westmeontheatre.co.uk) and reservations for The Thomas Lord’s ‘Hampshire’s Best Fare’ menu should be made directly with the pub.

* The Hampshire Food Festival menu will run on 1 and 2 July between 5.30pm and 7pm, and between 12-2.30pm and 6-9.30pm daily on all other festival dates (except Sundays).

Price: Theatre tickets from £13; Hampshire Food Festival Menu is £16 for 2 courses, £20 for 3 courses.
