Very good!

Beautiful fish cooked perfectly. Tender and juicy with a delicious curried rice...never had anything like it before and loved every bite. My husband had the sea bream and he enjoyed his also. We would definitely recommend this place.

We were staying in Lymington and decided to have lunch at Stanwell House, what a good choice sat in the conservatory on a bright and sunny day. The staff were attentive and polite making sure that we had menus and taking our drinks order. We decided to change tables not a problem again, apart from not cleaning the table we... More

Steaks were excellent, served as ordered, i.e. medium rare. A good atmosphere where conversation at one table would not intrude on others. Good menu, attentive service. A choice to order half-bottles of wine was a definite plus.

Stanwells is perfect for a special night out - it's a hotel with a well respected restaurant, situated on the famous Lymington High St. Booking and reception were excellent. Service was prompt and pleasant. If I had a criticism, it would be the confusing plethora of menus - you are presented with a bistro menu, table d'hote and a seafood... More

We were not sure where to eat and were delighted that we chose this restaurant. The room was being renovated so we sat in the bistro, but were able to order from either menu: even better!!! Highlights of our meals were pigeon breast and grilled plaice: both very good. We also ate breakfast here and highly recommend the grand English... More

Following my less than complimentary review of our lunch in the Hotel Restaurant in July I was contacted through Trip Advisor by Thierry Jung the Hotel Manager. He was concerned that our visit to the restaurant was less than satisfactory and invited us to return for lunch as his guests so that he could show us that our experience was... More

A really well welcoming atmosphere and well presented afternoon tea, classic with a modern twist. Generous portions and a welcome offer of more clotted cream and/or jam if needed. We sat in the courtyard garden and we were able to enjoy the sun and my friend the shade. The only tip I would have is, don't sit by the vent... More

This was not a pre planned visit and I wasn't optimistic we would get a table at short notice but the staff were very accommodating. The choices were from 3 parts of the menu:- taster, bistro and seafood. Bread was brought, this was clearly freshly prepared and more was offered should we wish. This was followed by a cucumber consommé... More

We would not usually choose a seafood restaurant but we found food that was very tasty and we were very happy with out choice. I had the king prawn and clam chowder so tasty and we shared a pannacotta that had homemade honey comb yum!
