“Good Tucker!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We took our friends from Australia to Lanes on the occasion of a birthday. It was excellent, we had never been before, the welcome, the venue, the ambience were all spot on! But of course the food is what you go for and it did not dissapoint, Starters were different and tasty, not tiny but just right, Mains were again excellent, 2 Girls had Butterfly Chicken, I had Breast of Duck and my friend had Fillet Steak. All agreed there meal was tasty,appetising and a large enough portion. The food is Nouvelle cuisine but not silly little bits balanced on top of a pyramid of carrot, we all had home made icecream and this was delicious, ask for Peanutbutter flavour!!
The service was excellent, cheerful and helpful. We were not rushed and Nicola was the perfect hostess. If I'm being really critical my chair was a little saggy, time for a reupholster!

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Restaurant was recommended by our Hotel as they did not have any space in theirs. From the outside does not look like much, but get inside and it is amazing. We so warmly welcomed, service was great, but best of all the food was terrific and great value for money. One of the best meals I have had in a long long time.

From Guernsey - Channel Islands

“Just discovered after visiting Lymington numerous times”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Top draw. Tucked away down a " lane" which makes it feel all the better that you have discovered a Lymington secret. Great food cooked with real care, not TOO fancy, but fancy enough to demonstrate some real thought from the chef. Really good value food and wine list - both my wife and I had the salmon wrapped in smoked salmon starter with scallops and prawn tempura. Cracking start. The main courses were good but the starter and the fantastic puddings were the stars.
I believe it is a husband and wife team who run the place, the lady who runs front of house is charm personified, lovely.
We will return

“Lanes of Lymington”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Tripadvisor suggested I review a restaurant in Lymington and Lanes is a little gem. Although I haven't been for a while it is a great place, tucked away, just off the High Street. Great food, great service and reasonably priced. They are also great supporters of the Lifeboat Crew, letting us have our Christmas party there more then once!

“A jewel of a restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Lymington is a lovely town but this restaurant is a real find. The food here is very well presented by a chef who has an obvious passion for his food. So much so that when we asked for the ingredients of a particular dish - not only was there no hesitation - by the time we had next logged on his e mail response was complete. There were 4 of us and we had the table downstairs but on a sort of gallery / raised platform. This really is worth a visit and is on my list to return.
