Visited here for a friends 85th birthday lunch yesterday. Not our first visit either!!!!. Again an excellent meal, with more than attentive service. Everything about the restaurant is well above par - the decor, the food and the service. Thank you all once again.

My daughter and I went to Highcliffe for a Birthday party saturday evening and booked for Sunday lunch to finish our weekend off after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. The ambience and food were first class. Lovely choice of menu, well presented and service was... More

As we are well served for choice locally I had not managed to get to the Lord Bute since moving to the area. Should have found it earlier!! Lovely venue, good menu, extensive wine list, pearless service - can't say much more, it was a really first-class restaurant experience!

As part of a wedding group we ate here twice with the normal menu and once for a wedding breakfast. Both the Friday evening meal and the Sunday lunch were excellent. The quality of the food was very good and the service professional. The mains that I tried, confit of duck, and a lamb roast were both well cooked and... More

We went to The Lord Bute to celebrate my recent retirement and we enjoyed a superb 4 course Sunday Lunch. This restaurant is very special. The service is excellent and the choices from the fixed menu was very impressive. Every element of this meal was beautifully prepared and presented - 10/10! We would definitely recommend the Lord Bute for any... More

The chef and staff at this restaurant truly go the extra mile to provide excellent food and cater for the needs of those with dietary problems [ensuring that the front of house staff are thoroughly briefed] the service is excellent too and the charges really modest. If you want fresh food, freshly prepared along the South Coast of England this... More

I am very sad as this was always the one restaurant where it was guaranteed good food and service. I have actually lost count of the numerous occasions we have eaten here. The prices seem to have gone up and there were lots of free tables even though it was a weekend. I also had a gin with flat tonic... More

This was our first to The Lord Bute and we were highly impressed! The staff were very friendly yet professional and the decor and atmosphere were both lovely. We chose from the very reasonable 3 course lunchtime menu which had plenty to choose from. All the dishes were beautifully presented of high quality and of generous proportions. Wonderful we will...
