Afternoon Tea, one of my favourite pass times! And not disappointed here. Food lovely, service could be better considering it's a 5* hotel. Only "constructive" comment, I feel they could up their game on the sandwich front! They were nothing special at all, and I've had far nicer at other local luxury hotels. All in all lovely experience, and do... More

Great food, however the service of the staff could have been quicker. I do not expect to wait over ten minutes for a pot of teat at breakfast.

Book brunch as part of New Forest food festival. Booking was painless and staff very helpful. However not really a brunch, just a good breakfast with the options of continental style breakfast with a cooked breakfast. Not a brunch at all and certainly not relaxed....! This was served in the grill room and while for just over 20 pounds I... More

The tea was excellent (chose lapsang souchong and green tea) and unlimited, the sandwiches were OK, but the bread was soggy, the scones were fat, fluffy and fresh (no after-taste of baking powder), and the miniature cakes and pastries were . . miniature. Nice room and outlook, spoiled for me by being seated right next to a banging, draughty door... More

The restaurant advertises fine dining, what it means is that you get small portions of food which has been assembled rather than prepared by a chef. The service also leaves something to be desired!

I was given a voucher for Afternoon Tea as a 60th birthday gift. We were lucky to be able to use this the day after my birthday and as luck would have it the weather was beautiful. Rhinefield house is in a beautiful setting with lovely gardens and at this time of year the autumnal colours were fantastic. Our afternoon... More

The kitchen is utterly chaotic and incompetent; when told problems the serving staff make up excuses and treat you as if you're being rather difficult. Here are some things that happened during our visit. 1. One guest ordered ravioli. He was brought completely the wrong dish. When he told the waiter, he was told, "Ah yes, well, we don't have...

My wife had a "special" birthday coming up and we were looking for somewhere in the New Forest area where the whole family could meet and eat. We visited several locations and Rhinefield House came out as the most suitable. We paid £100 extra for the use of a private room where all fourteen of us could gather. We were... More

We had a very enjoyable visit and the food and service was very good, one we would like to repeat. The staff were very pleasant. The service was good. The gardens were good for a stroll. There was a heron standing by the fish pond which was amusing he seemed so tame.
