“excellent food and delightful setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

This restaurant is somewhat off the regular main roads, but well worth the drive and seeking out. It's been three years I suspect since I last ate here, and when it was suggested by friends that we meet there for lunch it seemed an excellent idea. I was not disappointed. The absolutely perfect day of course added to the moment, it being hot and sunny, and the pub next door had arrivals coming in by horses and brake, which just added to the atmosphere of a restaurant in the forest.
It was surprisingly busy for a lunch time, and because all the food is individually prepared, service was a tad slow, but with good company and a nice view it was of little consequence. We were all delighted and impressed by the service and the food. Whether meat or fish, the food was beautifully presented and very tasty indeed.
It was a venue well worth a re-visit, and I shall make a point now of heading out there once more for an evening meal. Well worth the drive.

“2nd visit - still fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

This was our second visit to this wonderful restaurant whilst on holiday in the area.

The staff are knowledgable and there is a very extensive wine stock. The food is delicious and very well presented.

The restaurant only has one sitting in the evening, so you never feel rushed or hurried. The atmosphere in the restaurant is lovely and it has nice views as it is in the heart of the new forest.

Very much looking forward to our next visit.

“Wonderfull Ambiance, Fantastic Hosts.”

Excellent restaurant, warm welcome, superb food. Lively atmosphere with friendly hosts and attentive staff. Fantastic wine selection with prices to suit most budgets. Highly recommend the beef carpaccio starter (prepared to special recipe by Claude the owner).

“Very very good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

First timers with friends. Have to say I will definately return. The restaurant is well appointed, it has a great ambience (busy, noisey, lively) attentive friendly service and terrific well presented food. The four people on our table cleaned their plates. It was also nice and somewhat unusual these days to see the owners working hard on the shop floor, leading by example and taking orders and talking to guests. I suspect they have a large regular customer base. At £50 per head with drinks it was also good value.
