French cuisine sometimes struggles to deal with vegetarians, but I was able to put together a good meal that was well-prepared and attractively presented. Charges seemed pretty reasonable. Service was extremely good.

Loved the chicken and cheeseboard. Lots of choice and nothing is too much trouble for the great staff.

Went there to meet family and it was great. Really enjoyed the decoration and the back outdoor area. The meal was excellent, quick and definitely recommend it. Huge parking space.

We ran into this restaurant while riding in new forest. We decided to take a break for a quick lunch. Well, that wasn't easy. The food here was so tasty we took our time savoring and talking about the chicken and the fish. I am rating this restaurant one star less than maximum because the Gazpacho needs improvement (it was... More

Le Blaireau is a great treat, the décor is wonderful and quirky and the food is lovely. There were 5 of us having dinner, we arrived having made a very late table booking and the staff were friendly and very helpful. The food was very good, the waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu, which is always a good sign... More

Have recently stayed at Careys Manor Hotel and visited their terrific New Forest brasserie on two evenings. On both occasions our arrival was met with large helpings of humour and charm by Jim, Phil and indeed all of the team. Depending on the weather, you can eat alfresco under a wonderful canopy of grape vine outside, or alternatively in the... More

We were staying at Careys manor hotel, to which this Bistro is attached so thought we would try it for dinner on our first evening as it had generally good revues. It is a large place for a "Bistro" , with a long attractive bar area and a large outside sitting area. The welcome was good and we were allocated... More

Our 6th visit ...never disappoints. The Moules are as good as our visits to France and the steak was great quality. It is a mixture of French/English cuisine with local produce. Staff always attentive and polite. It is a very casual environment but this takes nothing away from the food. Overall a great option for a casual meal but also... More
