The ambience is relaxing and refreshing, with interesting art work. Great use of the different levels creating intimacy, without being crowded in; lighting is good, decor easy on the eye and comfortable. The food is excellent, all fresh and wholesome and beautifully presented. When I made the table reservation I was concerned about bringing two young children in on a... More

This aptly named restaurant, which we found tucked a little way down a narrow lane off the High Street, is a real find. It has a character all of its own - cosy, friendly and relaxing - and the food is excellent, There's a sensible lunchtime choice of full or quick menus, the service could not be more helpful, and...

Had a last minute break in Lymington and found on a Saturday evening all restaurants were fully booked. Nicola at Lanes fitted us in. She is a delightful person eager to please always with a smile. We arrived and had pre dinner drinks, the restaurant is an old church therefore the decor is lovely, warm welcoming and truly relaxing. The... More

I was looking for something for my mothers 70 th birthday . I wanted something special but the food had to be good but not too fancy or too plain for a fussy eater. I phoned and spoke to the proprietors and they were so helpful. I was invited to come and have a look and given copies of the... More

Really like this place. Only ever been for lunch and the menu is always good. Lots of choice and fine service. Very handy for the High Street and great on a Saturday after a trek around the market. And, I have to say in my experience, very good value for money !!!!!

After all the fuss on Tripadvisor we went out of our way to visit Lanes. The food is ok but nothing exceptional and we felt quite highly priced for what you get. We visit Lymington quite frequently and would not go out of our way to revisit Lanes.

Visited this restaurant with my Grandparents and was immediately welcomes by the lovely staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they gave great advice to me (as I'm a terrible decision maker, especially when surrounded by such a great menu). Had a lovely soft drink which apparently was made for/by the dad of one of the staff and she... More

My partner and I had booked for Christmas lunch back in September. Sadly our last visit to Lanes on Christmas Day 2010 resulted in myself having to go back home due to illness and felt very cold during the time spent at the restaurant. However, this Christmas Day lunch was fab. The started (can't for the life of me remember... More
