A party of 7, we visited in the evening of 19 Aug 16. We were told a table would only be a short while and offered a seat in the garden. Polite welcome and waiters, but there's where the good stuff ends. Drinks took 45 minutes to arrive. We were then shown to a table, food orders taken and another... More

We attended a Celebration Birthday BBQ at Stanwell House Hotel on a Sunday in July. It was held in their beautiful secluded gardens at the rear of the hotel. The food was absolutely delicious. The surroundings were first class, and nothing was too much trouble for the friendly and attentive staff. I don't normally write reviews, but had to share... More

Called in well into the lunchtime service and were seated, provided with a menu and drinks orders taken in a very short time. The food arrived fairly promptly, hot, well presented and tasty. The two ladies in the group had freshly made omelettes, one of mushrooms the other cheese and both were very good. A very large hamburger with fries... More

We were given a cream tea for a wedding present by our friends. We arrived on Sunday after booking and asking if it was possible to change the champagne to real ale as we didn't like champagne. The staff were lovely from the moment we arrived, seated in the conservatory, which is light and airy. Tea and ale brought with... More

The waiter here was really friendly and even thought we hadn't booked and it was busy we were well catered for. The lunchtime special of 3 tapas each and a glass of house wine for £10 was particularly tasty and good value for money so would highly recommend eating here if you are in Lymington
