Overall, my wedding day at The Old Vicarage was amazing. The venue is stunning however considering we paid the best part of £7000 for our day, there were a few areas that I felt could have been dealt with better. Firstly, they took over an hour to serve all 100 guests with a hog roast - two people serving would... More

What can we say - We had our wedding at the Old Vicarage and from the moment we saw the venue and met the team we have been treated to the most amazing service. Nothing has ever been too much trouble, the staff are absolutely brilliant and helped make the day the stress free event that we wanted. We had... More

As usual, the carvery is the same - good and convenient and well worth the money. On Sunday's it is packed and so hot... but the rest of the week is better.

A Sunday lunch to avoid. Cold meat; rock hard potatoes; no gravy; ghastly vegetables and a management who are too superior to the clients to apologise. I was offered a complimentary coffee by a confused waitress. Management were present but seemed to deem us unworthy of a decent apology. This is Christchurch where there are many fine restaurants and pubs... More

We have just returned from our Honeymoon, and have finally had the time to write about our wonderful wedding day! We had our wedding ceremony in the Orangery at The Old Vicarage. The room looked stunning, and lots of guests commented on what an unusual room it was, with the high ceilings - full of light - surrounded by garden.... More

My partner and I moved from London to New Milton in August, and being lovers of a traditional Sunday roast, we were thrilled to find this fabulous establishment close-by. On our initial visit the roast was served as a carvery, much to our delight as we prefer to choose what goes on our plate. The meat was tender, the potatoes... More

Dear Sir, Thank you for your review. I was surprised to see that you had been charged £15 for a childs Breakfast. This must have been a mistake, as we do not charge £15 for children's Breakfast Could you please kindly contact me on 01425 277006, at your earliest convenience. I would like to refund the full £15 to you.... More

Visited for a cream tea with friends. Delicious hot scones with homemade raspberry jam, thick clotted cream and plenty of tea. All served on assorted floral china in a light airy conservatory, gardens were beautiful too. Highly recommended.
