Very disappointing cold afternoon tea with a type of tea cake we had never seen before. Long wait and challenged at end of not paying bill when I had. No apologies.

Called in with my wife as we remembered it from past visits to Lymington. The food was excellent, and the staff couldnt have been nicer. Even better they were dog friendly - makes life so much better! Can't recommend it highly enough.

Pretentious, cold, average quality at high price, The Ship on the quay has far better food with a nice atmosphere and outside seating overlooking the harbour

Great little bistro tucked into the boutique hotel. Fillet of plaice with asparagus, just ideal and well presented with saffron potatoes. Friends had the trio of lamb which was also excellent. Firendly staff and decent house wine
