Visited for a year-end celebration - with colleagues - with the intention of doing so in style, and the venue certainly met the brief! The starter was exceptional, the main out-of-this-world (but for a £75.00 steak it pretty much had to be), and the dessert was a classic, with all elements being matched perfectly with many various wines. I cannot... More

Took my husband for a birthday lunch. Amazing service - staff were impeccable. Taster menu was lovely although quail dish was the weakest dish. Would definitely go again although will not be having the quail.....Recommend the smoked salmon is was amazing.

Arrived 20 minutes early so we could have a drink in the bar. Walked in the entrance and the reception staff were both on the phone - so hung around without being acknowledged so ended up walking into the bar. Again the staff were too busy talking to each other and using a marker pen on something. So we sat... More

We sat at the Kitchen Table at Hartnett Holder and had a terrific evening. I can highly recommend the experience. We took our friends, one of whom is celebrating his 50th birthday. We had 7 courses, each of which was just delicious, from the polenta bread to the goats cheese, piazettas, fish and duck. You do need to starve for... More

£55 for a five course tasting menu is a lot to spend on lunch (outside of London!), but not necessarily expensive … if the ingredients and execution of the dishes warrant the price tag. The restaurant at Lime Wood is clearly appealing to a certain clientele as it appeared fully booked, and the car park (an uphill walk of 200... More

A birthday lunch, a lovely day, beautiful New Forest setting, yet we came away thinking that it would have been nicer somewhere else, which was a shame because in general the food was not bad. However, not all the dishes were of the same standard and the service was variable with, for instance, one sommelier doing what was expected, and... More

This was the last chance for harnet @ holder, after two very poor previous experiences, The food yesterday was exceptional in spite of very small portions,I do hate having to pay extra for side dishes to complete the meal however that is a personal gripe. Service was a bit smart and cocky ,but overall perry good will return again

Having been to Hartnett & Holder before and not been too impressed with their two course lunch I was rather sceptical when my husband suggested we try the Tavolo Cucina 5 course taster menu. However, we gave it another try as we got a special deal online and so we arrived early, around 12h for our lunch. We were made... More

Interiors are very attractive and cosu. Food was reasonable quality but more posh gastro than aspirational Michelin which I had expected. Wine list was good with some different choices, committed sommelier, lovely cocktails. Watch out for the squidgy sofas - you end up with your hips lower than your knees which isn't great for digestion! Choose the firmed sofas near... More
