Verveine Fishmarket Restaurant


Milford, New Forest, 45-60£
10/12/2020: We had a very warm welcome from Sally and were shown to our table for 2, on the upper level, directly opposite the kitchen. Unlike the local Lymington man who complained about his table in the same position, we were very happy with it. When time allowed David included us into his conversation and answered questions, in a very genial manner. It was like sitting in a friend's kitchen while they prepared a meal, just drinking and chatting between courses. If only our friends could cook like David and his team!We both chose the 6 course tasting menu, with mine paired with a variety of lovely wines. What a treat for our eyes and taste buds. Even before the first course there was a quirky amuse-bouche, looking like a raw egg in an egg cup, which in fact was a mango creation. Followed by the lightest waffles ever, sprinkled with crispy onions, delicious.The 6 courses were brilliant, hard to choose a favourite, but will go for the most silky satay sauce served with???? and ??? fruit.My wife had 2 desserts and myself one. Once she tasted the first spoonful of liquorice ice cream, her reaction was almost a recreation of the famous Meg Ryan scene in When Harry met Sally.We would highly recommend choosing Verveine, not only for its sublime food, but the relaxed outstanding atmosphere and excellent service. My only slightly selfish suggestion, would be to have a small basket of artisan bread on each table, this would allow me and other customers to mop up every drop of those exceptional sauces.
04/12/2020: This is by far the best restaurant experience we have ever had. Everything was exceptional, the food was beyond exceptional and the sense of theatre was amazing. I can not rate this highly enough, we opted for the 6 course blind tasting menu and it exceeded every expectation. This place is one of those rare beasts, somewhere that not only deserves its excellent reviews but is actually better.

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.

Inger-lises Coffee Bar


Milford, New Forest
23/11/2020: One of our most favourite restaurants is providing a perfect takeaway during the Covid lockdown. Themed takeaway meals. Very much enjoyed the Caribbean takeaway at the weekend - particularly the Jerk chicken. Delish. So much more fun having a theme to brighten up the taste buds. Looking forward to the next one.
02/11/2020: Great food, very clean (covid safe). Had a very tasty breakfast. Staff were ultra covid vigalant. Nice surroundings

The Elderflower Lymington


Lymington Town, New Forest
31/12/2020: Unfortunately the Taste of Japan 7 course dinner due to be held on 29 December 2020 had to be cancelled thanks again to COVID-19 however Andrew and his team produced the experience in the form of a take away, including the matching Sakis. It was a wonderful experience with the food delivering a multitude of tastes and flavours and surpassed our expectations. Well done everybody.
28/12/2020: Had an amazing dinner with my girlfriend. Managed to get a table last minute and happily sorted out dietary as well. Service was amazing with great knowledge on food and beverage, both ladies are a credit to the company. Only managed to have the 4 course as late booking, so will be back for the bigger menu with more notice. My only criticism would be the portion of my main which I thought was very small but fantastic flavours. Will be going again for sure and highly reccomend.

The Cedar Tree Restaurant


Milford, New Forest
09/11/2020: Dinner first night included but liked it so much we ate there the second night as well. Restaurant full of local people the second night (last night before Lockdown 2) all wanting to have a last meal there as they wouldn't be eating there for another 4 weeks - says a lot. Food well prepared, tasted good and staff very helpful.
05/11/2020: I had a lovely meal the food was excellent and the cheese board had a great selection of cheese The breakfast is great lot of choice in fact the full English breakfast was so filling I couldn't manage anything else

White Tails


Brockenhurst and Forest South East, New Forest
17/12/2020: We picked white tails based on the trip adviser reviews and we really weren't disappointed! The food was tasty, nicely presented and reasonably priced. Excellent service from the friendly waiter. We particular enjoyed being able to pick which table we ate at having recently had a few meals ruined by noisy tables nearby! I would highly recommend for anyone staying in the area (we were based in sway and it was a 10 min drive out - well worth it!)
14/12/2020: Food was amazing, service was amazing and good price for how good the experience was. Presentation of the food was just great.

The Trusty Servant


Bramshaw, Copythorne North and Minstead, New Forest, <20£
14/12/2020: What a lovely hospitable pub. Really cosy and Christmassy. We had an amazing lunch here. Didn't really have room for it as we had a fry up at our B and B but I ate every bit of my pizza as it was so delicious! Would definitely recommend and revisit next time we are down this way
12/12/2020: Popped in after a long walk, landlord was very welcoming. COVID rules adhered to, felt safe.However, only one beer on tap, no choice.We had chicken wings and duck pancakes, both of which were over priced.Worked out at £2 per wing, albeit with lots of good sauce.Duck was a ridiculous price, £17.99 for six tiny pancakes and very small dish of duck.Would have appreciated a finger bowl for super sticky fingers.Such a shame, not sure if they are trying to recoup losses but should remember that everyone is suffering financially, even the customers.

Offbeet New Forest


Totton South, New Forest
11/12/2020: We shared the satay “fish and chips”, cauliflower rarebit and Christmas fries. Sooooo satisfying! We tried the carribean fish and chips before the second lockdown which was equally as good. I appreciate how offbeet continuously changes up flavours and cuisine in a unique and innovative way.
07/12/2020: We met as a small family group for lunch as a celebration of a little more freedom after a long time of isolation and what a pleasant place this proved to be. I am not vegan/vegetarian but I have y try o say the flavours, textures and overall creativeness of the chefs could make me move to a plant based diet. The coffees and teas were a delight and the service was relaxed efficient. You have to give it a go!

The Cartwheel Inn


Downlands and Forest, New Forest, <20£
25/10/2020: We visited the Cartwheel Inn for lunch whilst on holiday in Salisbury. There was a sanitising station at the door and we were shown to our table and given menu's. There were both Ala Carte and 2 or 3 course special menu's available. We chose meals from the 2 courses for £17.00 menu and opted for venison faggots and corn fed chicken. Our meals arrived on pre-warmed plates and were served piping hot. The corn fed chicken was very nice. The faggots were tasty but a little too rich and the fatty casing / skin not very appetizing. For desserts we chose the Cartwheel mess and fruit crumble. The Cartwheel mess was very nice, light and full of fresh flavour. The crumble too was very good, buttery and sweet with the fruit not over cooked or stewed. We chose to visit here based on the reviews and pictures (many of which have been posted by management) and were slightly underwhelmed. There was very little atmosphere and some of the presentation was not as good as expected when comparing to the pictures posted on previous reviews. The service was polite but not very attentive. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. The only other slight negative to note was that the background music kept on cutting out which was annoying.
24/10/2020: Visited with a friend for dinner. We both had the beer battered cod, which was delicious. Service great, covid safe. Recommend thoroughly!

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

The Cliff House Restaurant


Barton, New Forest
21/12/2020: A friend and I went for drinks and dinner here in the run-up to Christmas and enjoyed the Best bramble cocktail I’ve ever had by Mike. And lovely service by Jordan and Ellen! Will be back again soon foe the Mac and cheese truffle!
21/12/2020: We were able to get a table in their Alpine bar and I can honestly say that it was a perfect lunch. The Alpine bar follows all the Covid rules so we felt safe but for a few hours it was such a joy to feel that life was almost normal. Whoever came up with that idea deserves a raise.The staff were in such good spirits it really lifted the mood so hats off to them. It’s a tough job anyway but throw in the wearing of masks and having to follow a whole raft of rules makes it tougher. The food was fantastic. Fish finger sandwich and the pigs in blankets were the best we have had. It was lovely to see people happy and enjoying themselves. Thank you Cliff house for doing a fantastic job and delivering a great experience.

MacPennys Nursery Tearoom


Bransgore and Burley, New Forest
18/11/2020: While visiting the best nursery in the area, who really know their plants and give excellent advice, the cherry on the cake is to call into the cafe there. In the past I have had delicious bacon sandwiches but it is the lovely selection of cakes that I really go for. Many of these are gluten free. The staff are excellent, friendly and efficient. An added bonus is that dogs are allowed in.
15/10/2020: Called in to MacPennys Garden centre and found that Robins Nest was open again. With the corvid restrictions in operation we had to wait (not for long) to be seated and the tables were spread out to social distance regulations.This is our first time since February and it was a pleasure being back again at Robins Nest.Ordered our food and drinks served by friendly staff and delivered excellently. The cakes are always delicious so ordered a couple of slices to take away.So glad they are doing business again, although when we were there a couple of other people were having coffees/lunch. Wish them luck.

Big Blue Cafe


Totton South, New Forest
16/11/2020: How has this little treasure been on our doorstep for sooo many years & we didn’t know!! Food extremely tasty & much locally sourced. Extensive menu, had difficulty deciding what to choose! Super friendly service - not at all just for the surrounding workers, very welcoming to families. Couldn’t have been more friendly & nothing too much trouble. All COVID measures in place. Have been back a few times since August & could have written this review each time! My only criticism... BLUE surely it has to be Red in this part of the South Forgiven as sooo good
22/10/2020: Been coming to this cafe for years and was glad when it re opened after lockdown. The COVID measures in place are very reassuring and the food continues to be good. If you can’t find something to suit then you must be very fussy. I have commented in the past about the food and those comments still apply but I think that the excellent measures I place need mentioning especially for those that are apprehensive about eating out.
