Spent a super evening at Beresfords restaurant after a hectic day at New Forest Show My meal was perfect, the service excellent, and restaurant manager, Mr Gomez was most helpful, with excellent knowledge of wines and menu. Will return again.

Scollop ravioli was amazing!! The service was fantastic. I suggest that you make reference to this restaurant on your hotel. This is a MUST visit and I've suggested this to Amex Platinum team to visit 'based out of Brighton U.K.'. You should be packed every night!!

We ate here for a special occasion, and we definitely made the right decision. The food and service were superb, with good portion sizes and some really unusual dishes. The staff were excellent and really added to the experience. The overall decor and ambience was good too. One negative (if any) would be that maybe table linen would make the... More

We ended up at Beresfords by chance and had one of the best meals we've had in a while. The restaurant itself lacks ambiance because it's one long hall and the decor looks rather 90s, but the food more than makes up for that. We didn't have many expectations but we were surprised, the menu is modern European and the... More

Dear marureds It is funny how sometimes serendipity plays a part in making a great evening. Delighted to read this review and your comments on the quality of the food and service, the Restaurant and Kitchen teams will be "made up". Beresford's is indeed a long narrow room and we are working on plans to change the decor and furniture,... More
