Good but not very good this time!

We were a party of seven, for lunch and ate from the set lunch menu. Somewhat disappointingly, this menu had to be requested. When we were seated, we were given the a la carte menu....no mention was made of the existence of the set lunch menu. However, upon request, we received this and ordered... read more

Love this place. Have been to lunch a few times now. The last time we went Angela Hartnett was sat in the restaurant too😱 i was very starstruck. Food amazing (specially the smoked salmon, which is smoked in house). Staff absolutely fabulous.

When we arrived, we walked up the grand entrance and were welcomed by a beautiful building! On entering we were instantly made to feel welcome and led out onto the terrace, where they bought us our drinks. After a a little while we were taken to our seats, our drinks taken to our table for us. The menu is extensive... More

When you visit a venue like this you expect a special experience but when those expectations are exceeded you have to write about it and make sure that they are given the recognition they deserve. I took my family here to celebrate a birthday and a belated Mother's Day and it was a sensational experience. The food was delicious, the... More

With an imposing entrance, Limewood hotel (where H&H is based) is a gorgeous spot hidden in the New Forest. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and it feels special without being pretentious. We loved the goat, and the duck was cooked to perfection. Try the rhubarb trifle! Good value set lunch also available.

Four of us went for the signature set lunch special offer. As did several others on the day we went, so it was rather busy. We had our free glass of prosecco in the lounge and had to wait some time to be called through to the restaurant. But the waiter apologised for the delay and we explained that we... More

We stayed at Lime Wood House and had dinner in the restaurant. The food was delicious, locally sourced ingredients, combinations of amazing flavours. Packed on a Thursday night, good buzzy atmosphere and delicious coffee, always a good indicator for me

We had a very bad experience at this restaurant a few weeks ago and much to their credit one of the directors telephoned us the same evening to apologize and extend an invitation to return as his guests. We did indeed return on Sunday the 8th of March and we had a really super lunch. The service was excellent, the... More
