Lymington Town, New Forest
18/08/2018: Went with friends who live in Lymington, they hadn't been there before. Excellent, food, service, will go again when visiting Lymington
05/08/2018: This was our first visit to Lanes which is situated just off the High Street in Lymington. We had a super meal and found the staff to be welcoming, friendly and attentive . The main points I would like to make are:


Verveine Fishmarket Restaurant

Milford, New Forest, 45-60£
28/08/2018: We loved our evening here. We hadn't expected to secure a table but the restaurant had a last-minute cancellation, which made it even more special for our wedding anniversary. We also didn't know in advance that we were only going to be offered a tasting menu and wouldn't be able to choose what we'd be having (other than the number of courses), but we loved the element of surprise and theatre. We plumped for two courses (main and dessert), paired with the restaurant's choice of wines, all of which we really enjoyed. The amuse bouche added to the theatricality and the parmesan & sage bread and dipping oil was a nice touch. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and cooked, with delicious flavours and textures. The dessert was a work of art (as was the dessert wine)! All served with a smile and a sense of passion. And although the restaurant itself was small, it was a lovely room with hints of the sea in the intensely coloured tables and eclectic pictures. All very stylish. Just wish we lived nearer!
27/08/2018: Although we have visited the Lymington area on many occassions and eaten in many of the best regarded restaurants, I had not seen the Verveine Fishmarket Restaurant before. To see it no. 1 in the Tripadviser top 10 and after taking a look at their website I decided to book for the last night of our planned holiday. The website gives sample menus of starters, mains, desserts as well as a "taster menu" which ranges from £45 for 4 courses to £85 for ten (all without accompanying wines). However the main menu caught my eye with a very good selection of fish served with choice of interesting sauces/veg. However, upon arrival where we were greeted by friendly and knowledgeable staff , we were told that there was no choice except to have a taster menu. Not knowing the size of portions, we opted for a 3 course menu (at £44pp compared to £45 pp for a 4 course on the website!). Our first course was a good sized portion of king prawns with a tasty garnish and beautifully presented. Our mains were a reasonably sized portion of well-cooked turbot served on crushed new potatoes and selection of other seasonal vegetables. Competitive priced wines are sold by the glass if there is only 1 drinker in the party!


The Elderflower Lymington

Lymington Town, New Forest
30/08/2018: This was our third visit to The Elderflower. It was as amazing as the first visit. Staff are very attentive. Food is fabulous. Very tasty and presented beautifully. Location is very easy walking distance from Lymington high street.
30/08/2018: This is our fourth visit to the Elderflower and it was as fabulous as ever. The food is inventive, beautiful to look at and full of taste. The service is attentive and everyone clearly knows and loves the food they are serving. Truly wonderful place and worth every penny.


Rose and Thistle

Downlands and Forest, New Forest
05/09/2018: Excelllent service and the food was great. I succumbed to the steak and kidney suet pudding which was fab. Others had fish and that was equally good.
03/09/2018: What a gem of a place! Off the beaten track, stunning pub with small restaurant. Food was excellent, service was first class. Highly, highly recommend. We will be back for sure!


The Monkey House

Buckland, New Forest, >100£
07/09/2018: It was my wife's birthday so on the off chance we decided to go to the Monkey House, we were welcomed in, water was offered, we ordered drinks with our order for food, my wife had the Mushroom Risotto, I ordered a Chicken Hamburger, when the order came to the table my wifes Risotto was not as hot as it should have been so we sent it back, when returned it was piping hot, both meals were very tasty, and we would return again when next in Lymington.
06/09/2018: My husband and I stayed at The Monkey House on the August Bank Holiday Sunday. We had a lovely room with a great en-suite shower. Unfortunately we had booked to eat at another establishment in Lymington that evening but I so wish we had stayed at the Monkey House. When we came back from Lymington and a disappointing meal we found the bar/restaurant to be full of people enjoying what looked like great food and also enjoying the live entertainment. We had a lovely freshly cooked breakfast in the morning which going by this we definitely made a mistake in not eating in the restaurant! The team at the Monkey House were great and made us feel very welcome, a great little find and somewhere we hope to visit again one day


La Perle

Milford, New Forest
29/08/2018: Lovely as always. Good service and friendly staff. The food was really nice and there was plenty to choose from. Will definitely go again.
28/08/2018: This restaurant in our village has a well deserved excellent reputation. The staff are brilliant and the food. We went there last week for our anniversary and had their special meal of the evening lobster. We both had very good starters, my husbands beef Thai salad was particularly good. The mains served with chips and salad were very good and a glass of wine was included. The pre dinner nibbles and bread were excellent as well, We go there reasonably regularly, as do friends and neighbours, but probably more for special occasions. So glad to have it in our village.


Peggy Mays Cafe

Lyndhurst, New Forest, <20£
28/08/2018: Visited Peggy Mays as we knew they were dog friendly and had our 2 4 legged friends in tow, As soon as we sat down one of the ladies bought them over a water bowl.
27/08/2018: Went to Peggy Mays twice on our stay in the new forest. Both times all the staff were really friendly and are very dog friendly too. They loved our dog and made lots of fuss. Cream tea was delicious and massive. The second time me and my husband had the cooked breakfast which was also very nice. I would highly recommend this lovely place


Hotel TerraVina Restaurant

Ashurst, Copythorne South and Netley Marsh, New Forest, >100£
01/09/2018: Today is my birthday and I visited the spot in the woods for some nibbles, after a walk with my mother and our two small dogs. We requested to sit inside because of the heat and increase in bugs, so we sat in a corner. My puppy is rather excitable and barked in short spurts 3 times, quickly quietened by myself. Our food arrived along with a rude and short request from a manager for us to move outside as my puppy was disturbing other diners. I wanted to eat as my food was getting cold so we agreed to move. We were put in the garden in the heat and surrounded by wasps. Frustrated by the whole experience we decided to leave having not eaten our meals.a manager claimed if we wish to eat there again, we need to control our dogs. I have eaten at spot in the woods many many times, occasions where my puppy has barked and never had a problem. we felt so humiliated by the managers and they were incrediably rude, there were no effort to speak to us kindly as a paying customer. Claiming to be dog friendly? My puppy was at the photo shoot for the website and is featured in pictures on their Facebook! I appreciate a dog barking can irritate some people but don’t advertise as dog friendly if you can’t have dogs bark. Perhaps you should introduce a separate seating area for guests with dogs? My birthday was ruined by this experience, I will not be returning and please remove my puppy’s photo from your Facebook as he is clearly not welcome.
30/08/2018: Went with several friends , tea,coffee , chocolate plus various cakes . Well received made very welcome, excellent service. Drink nice and hot , toasted tea cakes excellent with butter and jam . Would go again menu looked good . Plenty of room to sit and enjoy both inside and outside. Need car to visit on bus route T3 but need to check times etc.


Bistro 26

Brockenhurst and Forest South East, New Forest
17/08/2018: This is a lovely restaurant with excellent decor. Service was perfect, the meal was well presented and delicious and the wine and coffee too. And prices were reasonable. All in all a delightful experience.
11/08/2018: We visited on a Saturday night for an early dinner, having booked about an hour before. The staff are very friendly, service is quick and the food was well cooked and tasty. We didn’t want a large meal so just shared a prawn toast starter which was very good. I had red chicken curry and my husband had green curry, both with jasmine rice. The curries were well spiced, with the green curry being hotter in spice than the red curry. Both had vegetables in the sauce, and were a good size portion. We didn’t have a dessert but there was a good selection. The place was nearly full. I would suggest booking particularly at a weekend, but if you can’t get a table then get a takeaway!


The Thai Corner Restaurant

Dibden and Hythe East, New Forest, 20-30£
29/08/2018: Amazing!! Heard great reviews about it so thought we would pop in for lunch today. Wasn't disappointed. The food was fantastic. We had the two courses from the lunch time menu. The Thai green curry was the best I've ever had. The service was brilliant too. Highly recommend. Looking forward to going again.
26/08/2018: All the previous TripAdvisor comments are true, this is a fantastic Thai restaurant of the highest order and well worth the one-hour drive for us to get there from Southsea, something I expect we will repeat many times. My starter of chicken satay was delicate, different and succulent, their jungle curry that followed was one of the best tasted, so good I literally wanted to lick my dish being the right degree of heat and taste and the banana fritters with ice cream were again different and so tasty, such exquisite thin and crunchy batter. My wife rarely eats anything cooked in batter being gluten free, but her starter of scallops was gorgeous, she too had the banana fritter and her pad Thai was just as she liked it without chillies. 9 + out 10 overall….


Fleur De Lys

Boldre and Sway, New Forest, <20£
17/09/2018: Sunday lunch for 5. Food outstanding, All had Roast beef, Fish board starter really tasty.
17/09/2018: We popped into the Fleur de Lys for a drink as we were exploring the area. A reasonable pint of ale was available and the host was in deep conversation with some other visitors about the history of the pub which was interesting to overhear.


The Cliff House Restaurant

Barton, New Forest
19/08/2018: Great find and delicious food. We had a table that we could bring the dog to, and had excellent service and brilliant food. Quite pricey but definitely worth it. Highly recommend - even just to visit the outdoor bar.
