Been coming here for many years since I was young with friends family and colleagues and have always loved the food and the service from waiters and manager. Especially the minute steak.

We ate at Le Blaireau and really enjoyed it, in fact we are talking about making a return visit even if we stay somewhere other than carey's Manor. It was empty when we arrived but quickly filled up. Even when it was empty the atmosphere was fine and the tables are spaced out enough that when it got busier it... More

The decoration was more Parisian than Paris - we escepially liked the old 2CV. The food was very good - my daughter had cod in tempura batter and chips and I had fish cake. The sweets were excellent - a chocolate mousse and a rhubarb cheescake. The service was very faultless.

We had a lovely welcome and fantastic service at Le Blaireau as well as a delicious meal. The menu has a wide selection as well as a seasonal daily special. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. We went in the depths of winter but it would be particularly lovely on a summer evening!

Went with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday and we could not have made a better choice. The ambience was excellent, the staff extremely pleasant and helpful and we all enjoyed our food and wine. There is an excellent choice of menu and a good wine list. The fish soup was particularly good and the same could be... More

If you are in Brockenhurst and you like good food and a friendly service you can't beat Le Blaireau's. Richard & his team are always very welcoming and the food very tasty.

We enjoyed a nice relaxed lunch in very pleasant surroundings. The food was very once and the wine (although not a huge choice) was very nice. A lovely experience.
