One of the only dog friendly coffee spots in Lymington. Beautiful place and made to feel very welcome with our large dog. Accommodation on ground floor is also dog friendly so may well look into this for future stay in New Forest.

Nice bistroesque courtyard restaurant where we had a quick and enjoyable lunch. Wide mix of ages using it but mainly hotel guests and well to do!

Excellent service, delicious starter of pickled apple soup and an unusual main course of roasted turkey with all the trimmings - both dishes were delicious. Had our meal in the conservatory and it was most relaxed atmosphere that I have experienced. Will come here again and full marks to management and kitchen staff.
