Had dinner here on a Saturday evening. Very good service, lovely setting and decor, good atmosphere. Food was tasty and well presented. However menu was slightly eclectic, we didn't know what most of it was, so perhaps check the menu online before going...

We were staying in the hotel and ate in the restaurant both evenings. The first evening (wednesday) the service was indifferent and appeared disorganised with some staff rushing about and over attentive affecting our relaxation. The Thursday was so much better with different staff and the waitress was calm and very good. The food is excellent and focusses on flavour... More

We took friends at the weekend to have lunch at this hidden treasure in the New Forest. They were completely blown away by it and now love it as much as we do. The food was utterly gorgeous as always but it is the effortless elegance and charm of the staff and the surroundings that sets this hotel restaurant apart.... More

Attention to detail and excellent food are just two attributes that you can expect to enjoy at Limewood. The staff could not be more attentive or welcoming. I live in the New Forest and have not had a such a delicious Sunday Roast in any other local restaurant. From their own smokery comes delicately flavoured meat and fish, together with... More

We came here for a lovely lunch recently using a travel zoo taster voucher. I had heard of this hotel and Angela Hartnett and had always wanted to experience the food but found the hotel/restaurant to be quite expensive. We were running late for our lunch but we telephoned ahead to advise. From the moment we got there the service... More

Went for lunch and had drinks on the terrace before moving into the restaurant where we had the 5 course taster menu. The food was really good and they use fresh local produce. The staff were excellent and very attentive and explained each course and ingredients to us. I would recommend this restaurant and will definitely be returning.

We had a fabulous lunch at Limewood. We had the taster menu as part of a promotional offer. From start to finish the service was spot on, we were neither rushed nor overlooked. We started with drinks in the stunning courtyard and then moved to the dining area at our request. The food was beautifully presented and imaginative, we had... More

We took my parents to Hartnett Holder & Co for Sunday lunch to celebrate my father's 60th birthday and could not have wished for a better experience. Décor at Lime Wood effortlessly blends a country house setting with modern furnishings, which provides an excellent eating experience especially if you have prime view of the wonderful gardens. We all went for... More

Lovely combination of quality, professionalism and informality. Interesting food cooked and served with care. Not cheap though!

We had a memorable meal at Limewood Hotel in wonderful surroundings. The food was superb and the staff first rate - James who looked after us had recently been promoted from Hotel Porter - a young good looking bloke but boy did he know his stuff and was so attentive. We started with Mackerel Cerviche and I had slices of... More
