Cafe Velo

Ringwood South, New Forest
02/01/2021: Best cycling cafe in the UK, Pete is a local legend! The place to be
26/12/2020: Best cafe in Ringwood. Awesome coffees (Bad Hand 😋) and cakes, great food including local bread and meat. “Mega Velo” highly recommended (with coffee included!) if you’ve got an appetite after your bike ride. An unbeatable breakfast. Friendly staff, fair prices for great service, food and drinks.



Brockenhurst and Forest South East, New Forest
10/01/2021: Great food in a lovely atmosphere. One of the best pizzas I’ve ever had 👍
05/01/2021: Had a takeaway recently while we were staying at local hotel. The food was amazing, really tasty. It was also hot and travelled well back to the hotel


The Elderflower Lymington

Lymington Town, New Forest
15/02/2021: The Elderflower pulled out all the stops in producing a fabulous seven course tasting menu (photo attached) for five of us by way of a takeaway during lockdown! Because of the food intolerances of one of our family, the entire menu was gluten and dairy free and was absolutely delicious! The food was very fresh and exciting, with a great use of produce. The oyster veloute was particularly memorable! Thank you Francesca and the team at The Elderflower for a very memorable 60th birthday celebratory dinner for my wife.
13/02/2021: We have treated ourselves to the Elderflower's covid services several times in these times. The Christmas goose was divine and we had the Valentine weekend menu, last night. It was comfort food elevated to another level!!!Four courses, delivered to our house, by Chef Andrew, all packages clearly labelled with their contents and instructions how to finish them. They only needed heating and plating so that you ended up with absolutely delicious food.As usual, I couldn't make up my mind which was my favorite course, all were. My husband found the beef particularly flavoursome and its texture ... perfect. AAnyway. A big thank you to Chef and the team.


Verveine Fishmarket Restaurant

Milford, New Forest, 45-60£
05/01/2021: I have dined here many times so it was the obvious choice for my Birthday dinner treat. It was lovely to see David, Helen and Sally again. We chose four courses, only stating no mussels or goat’s cheese. They were all fabulous and beautifully presented with lovely wine and a taxi home! We’ll be back ...
16/12/2020: My husband and I had a fantastic lunch at Verveine today. Despite me requiring a gluten free menu, the chef and staff worked hard to substitute G/F options on the Christmas menu and both our lunches were delicious and imaginative. We have not eaten out for months and this was a great choice for a special treat!



Lyndhurst, New Forest
15/01/2021: The quality you'd expect from an Italian restaurant. We had a delicious pizza picante, carbonara and tiramisu. Ordering again for sure.
21/12/2020: Awesome Italian Restaurant in Lyndhurst. Fantastic authentic Italian food, great menu and good value. Super clean and friendly faces. Try the Veal Milanese and Trofiette Pasta 👌🏼🇮🇹 We will be back


The Red Lion

Milford, New Forest
15/12/2020: This is a great place to meet, the Covid19 measures put in place makes me feel very comfortable being here.The staff are really outstanding, Ian is amazing, always remembering names and making us feel very valued.We had a Sunday Roast, the absolute best roast pork I've ever had in my life - so tender. We were too full to even have desert.Highly recommended
13/12/2020: We were drawn I by the board outside advertising a full English breakfast with toast and coffee for the brilliant price of £15 for 2 people. Lovely friendly waitron. Good Covid regs in place. Great portion size and served on warm plates. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast and will definitely be back


Totton Fish Bar

Totton East, New Forest
16/03/2021: Delicious fish and chips every single time 😋 staff are lovely too.
04/03/2021: Large selection of food (making it harder to choose) quick and efficient service and cook to order. Lovely crispy batter on a good quality of fish. Sausages are tasty too. Kebab meat and chip is a great portion size and good tasting kebab as kebabs go. Wide variety of drinks available too. Totally the best chippy this side of town. Without a doubt.


Borough Arms Pub Grill and Carvery

Buckland, New Forest
26/03/2021: Had the steak and ale pie and my girlfriend had chicken and mushroom pie with mash 1 bit of broccoli and 1 one bit of cauliflower no gravy the food was bland will not be ordering again really overpriced for what we had and 14 pound each pie plus 11 pound for scampi and chips extortionate I do not recommend this place at all
22/12/2020: Visited the Borough Arms tonight. What an amazing little pub, friendly & helpful staff, amazing lamb shank, real open fire, 80’s music playing and was made to feel right at home. I will definitely be visiting again and telling everyone I know to visit too. AMAZING!! 5 star!!!*****


Faros Greek Restaurant

Milford, New Forest
30/03/2021: Excellent, authentic Greek food. I've tried many Greek places in central NJ, and this is by far the most authentic. Like I'm eating my Greek mother's meals. Great vegetarian/vegan choices: soups, gigantes, dolmas, salads, lemon potatoes, etc.
10/03/2021: Horrible people ... I went to order a salad and asked some questions. The young lady who was taking orders was running around in a panic mode. She screamed for help from the kitchen. An old lady come out running and had no manners. She gave judgmental looks, sounded rude and was not helpful. Neither of them stood for a second and answered politely. They may be overwhelmed but that shouldn’t be the customers problem. I refused to order because of their worst behavior and left the place. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Clearly they need more staff and need to learn some customer service.


The Trusty Servant

Bramshaw, Copythorne North and Minstead, New Forest, <20£
23/03/2021: I found this wonderful pub when I was visiting the grave of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - author of the Sherlock Holmes detective stories, who is buried in the adjacent Churchyard. All of the rooms at the Trusty Servant Inn are named for characters in the Sherlock Holmes stories.
17/02/2021: Not bad, but not awesome. We went as a party of six for a Sunday lunch. The staff were quite friendly and quite attentive. They had run out of the only vegan dish on the menu but offered to make the risotto vegan for me. My son had the roast pork belly which was soft at one end and a bit burnt at the tip - it wasn't inedible by any means but just not great. The prices were at the higher end for a pub but about average for the New Forest, about £14 for a roast. There was a very good selection of vegetarian options. We then had cheese cake which was definitely homemade (big tick in the box!), however, they appear to have soaked the base in cheap brandy - whether this was the case or not there was quite a nasty bitter taste. They served it with ice-cream which offset that and allowed me to finish eating it. Portion sizes were very good. It's a nice atmosphere, but the two tables we tried were pretty squished in - not a massive problem. They also tried to charge us for an extra meal, this was a genuine mistake and they rectified it immediately - it was pretty busy. All in all, it was okay. Personally, I don't think I would visit again but wouldn't discourage others - it could be an altogether different experience when they're not so busy.


The London Tavern

Ringwood North, New Forest
14/02/2021: We ordered from the Tav at Yours Takeaway menu last night, and it was absolutely brilliant. The Honey, Ginger &Soy Pork belly was especially delicious, as was the Smoked Brisket with Bao Bun & the Dirty Mac & Cheese. All collected in a very COVID-safe manner, at a pre-booked slot. Brilliant as ever!
13/02/2021: All three dishes were delicious - lamb meatballs, pork belly and prawn curry. Hard to choose but prawn curry was probably the best. Worth going out on a very cold night for.


The Monkey House

Buckland, New Forest, >100£
20/12/2020: Sadly we were very disappointed with our traditional Sunday lunch today.The beef was extremely thin and quite a bit of fat. We would have had a dessert butthe service was quite slow although there weren't many people in the dining area.After some time we gave up and left.We have been before so a big disappointment.
14/12/2020: Stopped in for a Sunday roast. Service was great, beer was great, food was poor. Ordered a roast beef and veggie roast. Beef was over cooked and dry and the vegetables that accompanied was sparse to say the least. Left feeling hungry. To improve could do with a little more meat for the price and some green vegetables instead of all beige. Nice pub just needs to make food reflective to the price being asked to pay by customers.


Rivaaz Restaurant

Lymington Town, New Forest, >100£
05/04/2021: I got a take away for the whole family on Saturday night, which is all that’s available at this time. It took about 45mims from order. The staff are always very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent had loads of flavour and cooked really well. You can taste the spices and like more traditional Indian restaurants you can see them which personally I like. The food is a very high standard and although it’s at the higher end of the price range it’s worth it. Highly recommend this restaurant.
19/02/2021: We had this for takeaway as a treat. We ordered a lamb dom pukta and vegetarian jalfrezi along with bombay aloo, onion bahji and veg samosas. The flavour of the dom pukta was really nice and one of the best curries I have tasted, the smaller lamb chunks were very soft however the bigger chunks of lamb were very chewy. The veg jalfrezi had a great balance of flavour, spice and was perfect. The Bombay potato's and onion bahji were nice and just as expected. The disappointment came with the veg samosas,they were very small and looked and tasted like they were frozen commercially made and quite expensive for what we got.Overall as our first experience of rivazz we will definitely return but may change our choices slightly.


Foresters Arms

Brockenhurst and Forest South East, New Forest
19/12/2020: Visiting the area & after a 10 mile walk that should of been 5 miles we came across this pub. WOW!, what a find. They have certainly worked hard to keep going through these difficult times. Amazing friendly & welcoming staff. Plenty choices for food & drink. Great portion sizes. However,the winter wonderland tippee was simply amazing! Actually, was the point of it feeling like Christmas! So thank you & well done.
11/12/2020: Thoroughly enjoyed meeting up in Christmas themed teepee for a delicious Xmas dinner with friends. Worked our way through menu aided by some wine, and all dishes great, as usual. Well done for all your hard work in making this safe space serving lovely food. Can I book again next week


Inger-lises Coffee Bar

Milford, New Forest
14/03/2021: This was a Mothers Day present for my mum as I couldnt see her on Mothers Day. Ordering was done by phone and the lady was very helpful - fitting in my order even though they were clearly very booked. Delivery was at the time specified and beautifully displayed in a box . Mum was absolutely delighted with it. Many thanks
04/03/2021: So happy. Sadly due to Covid have been unable to visit in person but ordered a Valentine Afternoon Tea for two. It was fantastic. Plentiful and great baking delivered to the door. What more can you ask for!
