Lymington Town, New Forest
28/07/2020: We had a fantastic meal for 4 delivered to our door whilst staying in Lymington during July 2020. Food was fantastic, on time and hot, all presented beautifully on plates. It was a birthday celebration, so an extra special touch was included. The service was fantastic and all communication with Nicola was rapid. We were able to enjoy fine dining in the comfort of home. Superb.
27/07/2020: We had a wonderful meal to celebrate my sister's 50th birthday. Booked before Covid-19 outbreak but Nicola and Jayden looked after us in a socially distant way. The food was amazing - service swift and friendly. We would definitely go back and certainly recommend people to go there. It is a unique building inside too and large enough to be able to enjoy the exquisite food without being too close to others. This restaurant supports social distancing. Thank you Nicola and Jayden - and to Peter for amazing food.

Fleur De Lys

Boldre and Sway, New Forest, <20£
08/08/2020: Beautiful place to spend time in. Friendly relaxed atmosphere with food that is way above most local eateries in the area, with something for everyone on the menu. The staff are passionate about the food and wine they offer and always make you feel welcome. The garden is a lovely place to sit and have a chilled glass of something on a summers evening or enjoy your meal al fresco. Cannot recommenced this place highly enough.
07/08/2020: Went to fleur for lunch and even though was amazing weather it was hot so sat in a nice cool restaurant. Booked head as this is now the norm for track and trace. 1 had the crispy duck start my partner had the scallops and mum had the fish board. All came well presented. It was all sublime the the mains I had grilled whole lemon sole with caper butter and fries and salad my partner had the unpasteurised whole Devon crab with house salad and fries with a smoked paprika mayo and mum had the scallops and again absolutely amazing food and presentation. Wine choices were fabulous. Service was amazing.. Will come again soon. Please if you are going book ahead via email or telephone to book a table because it is getting very busy at the weekends from Thursday till Sunday.


La Pergola

Lyndhurst, New Forest
28/07/2020: Came here after lockdown. Fantastic to see less tables, always felt like we we sitting on other peoples Laps before. Always whispering to each other because we were so close to people, we used to feel like we were dining with them. Food was lovely as ever.
27/07/2020: Great food and service, just wish we would have left room for desert as they all looked scrumptious. It was also very busy so I would advise booking.


Hare and Hounds

Boldre and Sway, New Forest
30/07/2020: Staying in the village for a week and loved this place. Staff friendly, Covid safe as far as anything can be. Nice local cider on tap, decent choice of menu, and the beef chilli nachos I had were immense - couldn't finish however hard I tried !
27/07/2020: Food delicious..and large portions. Hot food and very tasty lovely atmosphere. Would definitely recommend..Will return


The Cliff House Restaurant

Barton, New Forest
02/08/2020: Beautiful views, set on the cliff top, with a huge beer garden and attractive indoor restaurant. The setting is absolutely stunning. We ate in the restaurant, the food was great and reasonably priced, most dishes were between £15-20. We were a party of five (x4 adults x1 five year old) the bill came to £180. I will definitely return if in the area. I wish I had somewhere like this back home. The only thing I would like to see with regards to covid-19 is : staff wearing face visors, turn off hand dryers in toilets (lots of bacteria blown into the air).
01/08/2020: We booked a family dinner at the Cliff House - really good impression on arrival, good covid19 procedures with hand sanitiser and screens, tables well spaced. Friendly and welcoming and enthusiastic staff. The food was generally good, but felt a little overpriced for the quality cf. other restaurants / gastropubs in the area (by perhaps 10-15%). The one disappointment was the skate wing which was heavily overcooked. This was mentioned to two members of staff but no adjustment was made to the bill. I would recommend the Cliff House but probably wouldn't rush back to eat there in a hurry. The garden enjoys a good location for views and there is an outdoor bar and also outdoor kitchen + festival toilets to help social distancing, but it can get very windy so be prepared & bring a jumper / coat and/or hat (even in the middle of summer). The garden would probably benefit from a bit of landscaping / screening, but obviously there's a desire not to block the views out to the Solent.


The London Tavern

Ringwood North, New Forest
19/04/2020: My son arranged for us to have a Sunday roast delivered to our door today, beef and nut roast. Perfect!
16/03/2020: Went for Sunday roast and booked a 5pm table. Enjoyed roast beef with all the trimmings followed by apple and rhubarb crumble - amazing cauliflower cheese! Whilst eating watched an amazing singer Acoustic set and then entered the sunday meat draw at 7pm and won a gammon joint. We travel 1 hr to visit this pub regularly as the food, staff and general ambience is everything we want. A great pub


White Tails

Brockenhurst and Forest South East, New Forest
14/03/2020: The food and the service are amazing. There is not a huge choice but it would be difficult not to find something to suit. Everything was faultless. Can't recommend enough.
13/03/2020: We ate in the restaurant on consecutive evenings. The food was well presented and absolutely delicious. The service was prompt and friendly. We would thoroughly recommend paying the restaurant a visit.


Peggy Mays Cafe

Lyndhurst, New Forest, <20£
16/07/2020: The cafe is in the middle of Lyndhurst high streetIt has 4 tables outside and many tables inside and has a toilet inside We ordered a new forest breakfast which was the bigger breakfast with 1 sausage, 2 bacon, 1 hash brown and beans and homemade bread toast (we didn’t have eggs or tomatoes). Lovely breakfast well cooked and tasty, sausages were herby and massive. Lovely hot chocolate and tea.Good value for the new first and very filling,There was also a wide range of homemade cakes inside.Sanitizer on the tablesDog friendly we could have sat inside or out.Much better breakfast than at our hotel!
15/07/2020: Never been to this cafe before and wanted to start supporting local businesses more. We had a panini which was delicious! The service was great and atmosphere was also great. Will be back! Highly recommend.


The Elderflower Lymington

Lymington Town, New Forest
05/07/2020: Why has this place not got a Michelin star?After lockdown, the Elderflower had its safety practices established and its staff properly trained to ensure customer safety but they still afforded a very friendly welcome.We went for the seven course tasting menu and the accompanying wine flight. One of us is allergic to beetroot, a feature of one of the dishes, but the chef had taken that into account before we had arrived and had provided substitutes that were pronounced superb. Well done, Andrew.Highlights: difficult as all food was very good but worth a mention are the rabbit (with and without beetroot) and the crab and a very well chosen and reasonably priced wine flight. The standard of service also rates as a highlight as does the quality of the small but interesting drinks menu.It is also nice to be remembered!
21/06/2020: In these difficult times this restaurant creatively provided drinks for off site consumption and a take away menu. They made Saturday on a crowded Quay a pleasure. Big admission...we haven’t eaten there in the restaurant so far....but needed the takeaway.Our order, mussels and fries plus ribs and fries presented in quality packaging but the food, it was exceptional. The best ribs in Lymington by far and the mussels...taste and size perfect. Big recommendation and we will certainly visit again.


The Royal Oak Pub

Forest North West, New Forest, <20£
07/08/2020: Ate at the Royal Oak this week and cannot compliment the quality of the food and service highly enough. Sat in the beautiful garden and had no concerns about social distancing from other people.Upon arrival we were met by a lovely lady who carried out the necessary checks in a very professional and courteous manner. Would go back and definitely can recommend this lovely Forest pub.
07/08/2020: Beautiful, spotless, excellent service. 10/10. Covid restrictions spot on. Being in the trade I’m always looking for ideas to improve. This pub doesn’t need improvement it needs awards!


The Monkey House

Buckland, New Forest, >100£
20/07/2020: Sorry we didn’t find this establishment at the beginning of our weeks stay in Lymington. It is all one could ask for excellent food, efficient and very polite staff. A good menu choice with daily specials. If you are in the area it is well worth a visit, you will not be disappointed.
15/07/2020: I Love this pub, food is fantastic (best in Lymington), atmosphere is amazing, staff are super helpful & friendly & prices are good, you couldnt ask for a better pub. Best In Lymington
