Dined here on Saturday after booking a last minute weekend trip the area. Called up as the online reservations showed only 6pm available which was earlier than we would have liked to called up to see if anything else was available but was informed it was 6pm only. Well, we arrived at 6 - it was dead - and the... More

Found the food heavy and it gave me indigestion. We wee also sat by the door to the kitchen. Management should do something to make this less irritating - appart from the constant door kicking and crashing the view into the kitchen was very ugly - do some painting!

My husband treated me unexpectedly to a night at Lime Wood and so, did not know what to expect from its restaurant (I normally do my research in advance). The restaurant has a lovely relaxed atmosphere and is exceedingly comfortable - dim lighting, quality furniture, tasteful furnishings etc. The menu is predominantly Italian with New Forest twists and the wine...

I agree with all the comments about the venue, however, afternoon tea is extremely expensive, lacks choice and we felt outcasts. Remember there are other Afternoon Tea outlets in the New Forest

Amazing food, great service (the bar staff in HH&C were just lovely) and a real treat. Booking essential but not to be missed.

A thoroughly enjoyable experience from start to finish. The staff were excellent and subtly attentive. The food was as delicious as expected and the birthday champagne an unexpected treat. I look forward to the next reason for a celebration meal!

My partner and I went for dinner at the Hartnett & Holder in Limewood House Hotel, and everything about it was fantastic! The venue and service were excellent (special commendation to the Maitre' D in the restaurant who could not have been more helpful). The food was excellent, and having dined at Angela Hartnett's London restaurants previously, I can confirm... More

On arrival we were very impressed, the staff at reception were very welcoming and showed us to the lounge bar where we were sat in front of the log fire to warm up, after 20 minutes or so we were shown to our table. We were told to leave our coats on the large seats ad they would put them... More

Ate here for the third time whilst staying at the sublime Lime Wood Hotel. The experience can be hit and miss- last time the waitress brought us the wrong linguine- but generally food tastes good. My duck, despite coming with a warning that it would be pink, was very lovely, as was the hare ragu. My only complaint is that... More

My second visit and it's as good here as ever! Food choices such as Baby Vegetable salad make exceptional starters. Main courses such as duck or Sunday roasts also excellent and would recommend the deep-fried courgette sides. Chocolate mess dessert got my husband's vote as did the extensive wine list. Can't wait to visit again - but will need to... More
