Birthday meal gone right!

We ate here for my birthday and everything was fantastic. They accommodated on the terrace to enjoy some pre lunch drinks (very much appreciated as we were trying to get our 9 month old son to have a nap to allow us to eat!) The maitre de allowed us to hold our table a little later as to ensure... read more

This is where Limewood goes from brilliant to the elite, Hartnett Holder & Co have created a menu that is painfully good. I use the word painfully because you will leave the restaurant not just wanting more but dreaming of it too. From rich truffle pasta to perfect salads, there is something for everyone and the menu never get tiresome... More

The hotel buildings and facilities are lovely and stylish but the food is Very Poor and VERY expensive. My starter of rabbit went back to the bad old days of nouvelle cuisine with barely a dessert spoon of rabbit and one miserable deep fried mussel. The main course was two slices of lamb on a bed of pea puree with... More

Beautiful setting and lovely room - but the whole experience was really let down by food and service to a degree. This was a special anniversary dinner and whilst nice to have an attentive waiter, he was a little too intrusive on occasions. We were seated on the terrace which was nice as a lovely warm evening, but children having... More

Met my sister for coffee and breakfast patisserie. The sad thing is that both the coffee and the freshly made pain au raisin were superb. Unfortunately the coffee came, we finished it and waited and then the pains au raisin arrived. So we asked for more coffee that did not reach us til we had finished eating! And ourselves and...

Having had experience of Ms Hartnett's Murano and Cafe Murano, and being in the area we were keen to try this newer venture. We are glad we did. Wonderful food, a good selection of wines, friendly and correct service. Strongly recommended.

We had lunch here as a group of 4 as we are great fans of Limewood's "sister hotel " - The Pig in Brockenhurst. We took advantage of their voucher on Amazon Local offering a 3 course set menu with a free glass of Prosseco. Maybe that's the problem as we were not "A La Carte" customers? The starters and...

However - this time it was just for birthday lunch in November and very disappointed, service was slooooooow, painfully slow. the choice on menu was 'limited' even for someone who can eat anything.... just bland and uninspiring.. oh and the services was slow.......

Went for a business lunch on the hottest of July days. This is the perfect location with excellence everywhere. Staff were all attentive and not at all pushy or hurried, in spite of the heat. A drink in the garden was followed by and excellent 3 course lunch. Risotto as a starter was brilliant. Zingy garlic and anchovie flavours blended... More

Service superb, good original choice of dishes, attractively presented. The potted crab was very good, as was the trifle.
