High Quality Tasting Menu

We had a five course taster menu through Amazon Local. Restaurant was full on a Thursday night which shows it's popularity. All courses were high quality and the staff were professional and friendly. As with most taster menus the portions are not huge but more than enough as they tend to be quite... read more

Very good experience. The starters should be bigger but that's a small niggle. But the quality and attention to detail was very good.

We ate here as part of a Travelzoo offer which included a 5 course taster meal. I am a fussy eater and not good at trying different foods. This taster menu changed my opinion. We had artichoke velouté , really tasty, beetroot different ways, again so nice, then the one I was dreading, sea bream on a pasta, I have... More

We've eaten here several times and have always enjoyed the food. Our previous experiences have always had lots of wow moments and fantastic taste explosions that have have had us discussing the food. Unfortunately we didn't get this at all during our meal recently, it was a catalog of errors and tasteless food that looked stunning but had no flavor.... More

Ate here whilst staying at the hotel and it was truly a fantastic experience. Innovative dishes, great flavours, beautiful presentation and first class service. It came very close to a previous Michelin starred restaurant experience.

Christmas lunch at Stanwell House Hotel was delicious and probably the best we've had, thanks to Ben the head chef and his team. The meals on Christmas Eve and Boxing Day were also excellent. Superb selection of vegetables cooked to perfection.

We stumbled upon the Stanwell House Boutique Hotel restaurant whilst looking for somewhere to lunch in Lymington. What a fortunate find! The ambience immediately struck one. The part of the restaurant being used for luncheon was a room created in the space between adjacent buildings by adding a conservatory style roof and furnishing with mainly wicker furniture. Despite the flagstone... More
