Fantastic Food!

I've eaten at Beresfords Restaurant in the Balmer Lawn Hotel approx. 150 times in the past 3 years. Steaks ,fish, game, lamb, pork ( all local produce) ,every dish I've eaten has been excellent. I would recommend Beresfords and their staff above every other restaurant I've eaten in the New Forest and surrounding area.

The service was old fashioned, in a positive way with real attentive service and the waiter knew about the wines & food that was on the menu which was extensive & would suit every taste. The food quality was very good. A thoroughly enjoyable meal.

My husband and I went in the last weekend of May this year and it was fabulous. The staff were friendly and the service was very good. The wine list was decent with bottles at surprisingly reasonable price- the 2010 Rioja we enjoyed was one of the more expensive bottles at £30. I personally thought it was really good value... More

Having been driven past this amazing sight of a venue since I was a child, I've always wondered what it was like on the inside. We only made it as far as the restaurant but even that was a great experience. Never before have I felt like I belonged in a place so upmarket - although we did have to... More

We stayed here during our half term break. From the moment we arrived in the restaurant the staff were very attentive and friendly but without being over the top. The food was beautifully presented and was delicious. A really enjoyable evening!

I have eaten several times at this restaurant and each time had a good meal, but this time everything was perfect and left having thought what a good meal that was.
