We were a family party of six wanting private dining for a very special occasion. We chose to eat in the Study, which was a very nice room and the table had been laid with flowers and candles (£100 charge for the room which we thought very reasonable, a much bigger party could choose to eat there). When we arrived... More

We arrived early for drinks at the bar. A charming young man asked us if we'd been here before. We said "no" so he asked us if we'd like to be escorted around the property and we said 'yes". Beautiful grounds, eye-watering prices if you want to stay the night, beautiful spa area and herb garden on the roof. You... More

I have been wanting to eat at Angela Hartnett's restaurant for a long time. We love Lime Wood and so on a visit to the New Forest, I booked a last minute early dinner. The dining room is most impressive and a really lovely venue with amazing grounds. Our pre-dinner cocktails were very nice and we had a nice table... More

Clearly a very high end experience, with creative recipes and ingredients. Our waiter was too attentive and kept pouring the wine in hopes of selling another bottle. When asked to recommend a moderately priced wine the sommelier proposed what I would call expensive, more than double what we chose to order. If you want to impress a client or celebrate... More

As you'd expect with Angela Hartnett behind it, this restaurant is just superb. Great food, great staff, great service. Simple as that.

Four of us ate in the dining restaurant for lunch from the a la carte menu. The food was superb as was the comfort and ambience. The virgin cocktails were delicious. They catered for gluten free diets without hesitation. Highly recommended.

The character of this restaurant fits perfectly with the character of the Limewood Hotel, modern, slightly quirky but with classical undertones. From the moment we arrived we were extremely well looked after by the attentive, professional, polite staff. The seasonal menu was had a good selection and catered for most tastes - the food was flavoursome and well presented; good... More

Limewood is a lovely hotel, luxurious and modern while keeping the character of the building, the gardens are lovely and on a summers day were wonderful. My wife and I were here to celebrate my birthday and were not disappointed, the food was exceptional, well presented and tasty. The service all afternoon was excellent, but never in your face or...
