Milford, New Forest, 45-60£
10/10/2020: Absolutely fabulous experience - the freshest fish and seafood prepared by a very talented chef. Each dish was a delight; we will be back!
07/10/2020: My husband and I visited with my Mum whilst staying nearby. We can done some research beforehand and booked a table several weeks ahead of our trip based on the reviews on here. We opted for the 6 course meal with matching wines. All I can say is Wow!! We had such an amazing meal and loved everything. The service and the food/wine was first class. Such a treat that we would all definitely recommend - thank you David & team.


The Elderflower Lymington

Lymington Town, New Forest
12/10/2020: Lovely food and great service. Felt very Covid safe in the restaurant and would recommend for anyone wanting a special meal out. The fish soup entree was the best I have ever had.
11/10/2020: What a superb find. We were recommended to try The Cellar next door for a drink and thought we’d try here for dinner. What a wonderful find. The menu was completely to our taste and the food presentation out of this world. The staff were amazingly professional and a credit to the restaurant. Would thoroughly recommend. We can’t wait to come back and try the tasting menu.

21/10/2020: My friends and I have a ongoing challenge - find the Best Fish and Chips in the South - Well, The Monkey House will take a lot of beating. Everything was just great. Food took a little while to arrive (busy lunch - with every table occupied), but who cares when the quility is upto this standard.Everything was high quality, even the napkins, with the toilets are of 5 star standard, All was put into the shade by the food and at a price making it almost too good to be true. Would I come again - YES PLEASE!Thank you for a wonderful lunch.Sylvie and Peter Johnson - with friends


Inger-lises Coffee Bar

10/10/2020: Amazing food, super lovely staff. Menu has lots of great veggie and vegan options, food is nice and healthy and the portions are big! 100% recommend the Saltwater Cafe.
09/10/2020: Beautiful breakfast! Highly recommend - I had the full English pan breakfast and the wife had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs! Lovely setting and one of the best brekkies I’ve had in the new forest.


La Lambretta

Fordingbridge, New Forest
16/09/2020: Once again, our dining experience at La lambretta surpassed all expectations. Despite all current restrictions, Marco and his professional team have found ways to make your meal extremely comfortable and you forget the turmoil around us.The restaurant is welcoming and the ambiance is truly outstanding. This is no ordinary pizzeria...The food is unmistakably Italian and fantastic quality. Rudy the pizzaiolo creates a fabulous selection of real home-made pizzas to die for with a wide range of toppings. The pasta is carefully prepared to top Italian standards and is really outstanding. The produce is top quality, imported from top producers in italy and the fresh vegetables are provided by a local supplier. The wine list is fantastic and the coffee is second to none.The service is efficient, and super-friendly. Covid measures are adhered to without feeling restrictive. Take-away option available Gluten free customers are catered for.The app for bookings works very well.We are so lucky to have this fantastic establishment on our doorstep!
15/09/2020: On our first night in the New Forest, the 4th Sep., we had a Takeaway delivered to us in Stuckton. The majority chose Pizzas and the were excellent. Four nights later, on the 8th, we went for a meal in the Restaurant. What a find!! 5-Star Service, Food and a fantastic Atmosphere. Marco and his Team did a great job, given the current circumstances. The food could not be faulted. I chose my 'Tester', the Traditional Carbonara. I was not disappointed, it was faultless and the fresh pasta was superb. So may restaurants have failed to produce anything close. I have to say, I'm glad I do not live in Fordingbridge, otherwise I'd eat there every week.


The Trusty Servant

Bramshaw, Copythorne North and Minstead, New Forest, <20£
27/09/2020: Booked a table for Saturday night for me and my partner, what a gem! Fantastic specials, cosy atmosphere with social distancing in place and super staff. One down side to the evening, there was terrible yappy dog in the area we were sat, clearly the owner couldn’t control. We were extremely relieved when the lady was asked to take the dog away by the manager who handled the situation very well. We will be back :)
27/09/2020: Absolutely mega pub tucked away in Minstead. Really nice pub inside and good garden out the back. The staff Chris and Elliot went above and beyond in their service. Menu is hard to order from because of so many good dishes! Be sure to check out the specials and the pork tomahawk. Would definitely recommend.

White Tails

Brockenhurst and Forest South East, New Forest
22/10/2020: We had had the pleasure of eating in this restarant last week. What a find. It may not be the most fancy of restaurats but more than makes up for it with its delightful food, wine and service. Absolutley 10 out of 10. Romsey who appears to be a one man band was brilliant znd his helpfulness most welcoming.
11/10/2020: We had a wonderful evening meal at White Tails on the 9th October whilst staying at the adjoining equally excellent Cottage Lodge Hotel. The food was excellent and mine host was welcoming and attentive.


Peggy Mays Cafe

Lyndhurst, New Forest, <20£
09/10/2020: Popped in for late afternoon snack, I had the biggest toasted teacake ever, COVID-19 measures in place, would recommend
06/10/2020: I have to say that I am wondering how this got to be rated number 1 restaurant in Lyndhurst; I could name at least two that I think would better deserve this.On a rainy Saturday, still busy with tourists, we needed somewhere for just a quick snack and coffee. Here just happened to have a table free as we arrived outside.Firstly, Covid protections. Plenty of sanitiser, both inside and just outside the door. All staff suitably masked or visored. However, the only track and trace check available was to scan the NHS Q code on the table inside the door. Surely they must realise that not everyone has a Smartphone, and not everyone who has has the app. So ours, and from what I saw while sitting there, many others' tracing details were not recorded.Coffee was nice and so was my wife's slice (or should I say "chunk"!) of Coffee and walnut Cake; it was a bit too large for comfort, really. My "Large Toasted Teacake", though, was very disappointing. Large it definitely was, but not at all flavoursome, and with not nearly enough butter.As I say, on the whole, disappointing.


The Cartwheel Inn

Downlands and Forest, New Forest, <20£
09/10/2020: Visited the New Forest for a week with husband, daughter and boyfriend. Ate at the Cartwheel Inn one evening and went back again the same week. The food is delicious. We had starters mains and desserts. All perfect. Fab atmosphere a real gem and we will definitely be going back when in the area again.
08/10/2020: Great meal tonight. Great service and superb food. Big thank you to Paul and his team. This is most definitely the “must go to”pub for the very best in quality pub food.


The New Forest Pantry

Ringwood South, New Forest
12/10/2020: We like to support independent cafes.This little treasure was almost tucked right out the way between other shops.

We sat upstairs listening to the relaxing, easy listening music whilst enjoying lunch.We both chose ploughman's with ham and coffee.. Very generous size portion and fantastic value for money..Nice to have a choice of cafetiere coffee too.. and an option of hot milkDefinitely coming back again ..thank you

Offbeet New Forest

Totton South, New Forest
11/10/2020: Been meaning to visit again to try the curries gnocchi and finally did today. It was amazing. The flavours were out of this world, I’m wondering when to rebook for more. Also enjoyed a smooth oat milk mocha.Got take away cake to enjoy including a Pup Cake for my dog. Thank you
01/10/2020: This is a contemporary style restaurant, very clean, with good friendly service. Been here a number of times and always enjoyed our food, however, on this occasion we felt a bit let down because we found the battered 'fish' a bit tough and along with the chips, a bit on the greasy side. It didn't help that it was served in a bowl instead of a plate and we found it a bit hard to cut up, so, ended up eating the fish with our fingers. The mushy peas didn't stand out and there wasn't really anything to contrast with the 'oiliness'. We did try the Caribbean chutney/pickle but found it too hot. Never the less, the flavours and quantity were good. Having said that, it was the first day of opening for sit-in service and they were understaffed, not having expected such a response. It was nearly the end of service too. We had a great big slab of Bakewell cake which was delicious as was the coffee. Would we come back again, absolutely.


The Cliff House Restaurant

Barton, New Forest
01/10/2020: Thoroughly enjoyed a lunch here today for four. Beautiful views from the cliff top out across Christchurch Bay with Studland to the west and The Needles to the east. Gorgeous weather too!Polite service from the start including bringing a welcome drink for our friend's dog. The guys had the prawn linguine in a spicy tomato sauce and the girls the panko prawns with Thai veg puree. Good quality, sensible portion size and the bill did not hurt too much! Would definitely eat here again.Excellent COVID secure setting whilst maintaining customer service standards.
28/09/2020: We had friends staying at the Cliff House Hotel for a few days so we drove nearly 50 miles to spend the day with them and have an evening meal at the Cliff House Restaurant.As we didnt stay at the hotel I will keep my review to the restaurant only.We'd booked a table for 4, we were shown to a nice table in the corner, the first thing to say is that the service throughout was excellent, unlike a lot of places they seemed to have enough staff to give a decent service. They were attentive without being over bearing and nothing was too much trouble. Unfortunately I didnt note their names but were men, one was French and the other was tall, slim & wore glasses, I'll give them both 10/10 for service.We only had 2 courses, a main and desert. Initially, I thought the menu a little expensive. Being a Veggie I chose the Fillet of Bream . It came well presented and was excellent. The fish was probably the best I've ever had and the vegetables were excellent too. I think it must have been the sauce/oil they came in (Lemon & herb) but overall not only could I not fault it, it was one of the best meals I've had anywhere. My only minor criticism was that I could have done with another small potato and and a few more beans ! Next came the desert, I chose the Cherry Bakewell Tart, I was expecting something like the Mr Kipling type but not only did it not look anything like it, it was very different and was also superb.So overall, I'm giving 10/10 for the food even though I would have liked another small potato and a few extra beans because what I had was so good.Price, I said that initially I thought the prices were a little high but I recognise you get what you pay for and because the food and service were so good I consider it value for money.Finally, the restaurant was popular and I can see why, it is in an excellent position on top of the cliffs with superb views.The acid test, would I go back ? definitely, so long as they do the same food and retain the staff.



Lymington Town, New Forest
27/09/2020: This restaurant deserves 3 Michelin stars. We were given a wonderfully warm welcome and the evening went from strength to strength with delicious, imaginative and beautifully presented food. Service was faultless, prompt and friendly and there was a very comprehensive but not over long wine list.Our wedding anniversary was marked with a specially decorated plate of lovely petit fours. Certainly an evening to remember and we can't praise them enough.
25/09/2020: Beautifully cooked and tasty meals, served in a professional and Covid-aware manner but still maintaining their customary friendly atmosphere. The menu was varied and, having phoned ahead with specific dietary requirements, the kitchen was able to accommodate a number of vegetarian and gluten-free options.


Surfing Moo Moo

Lyndhurst, New Forest
21/10/2020: We really liked this place. It has a wonderful feel & helpful staff. The menu is interesting & the food was delicious & beautifully cooked. Wine by glass was nice too. Highly recommended!
19/10/2020: The staff were very friendly and the restaurant was very clean and Covid compliant. The mozzarella frittas were tasty and a good size as a starter. The garlic chicken was well cooked and not overpowering. The Mongolian lamb came in a steamer and tasted delicious, this is a must try dish. The wine selection was varied and very reasonably priced. This restaurant comes highly recommended
