Bike riding in the New Forest we came across The Rhinefield House. Super setting and we had a nice simple lunch in the gardens. (I realised when I was there that I had been there before, 30 years ago, for a conference when it was owned by Richard Branson. Doesn't seem to have changed a lot.) Service was very attentive...

Just had dinner at The Grill Room restaurant here at Rhinefield House Hotel. Food was very nice and tasty - but a few factors prevented us giving a higher score. There seemed to be a shortage of staff both waiting in the restaurant and kitchen resulting in significantly long waits for food and plates to be cleared. The staff there... More

Having had a beautiful morning's forest walk we went for coffee and cake to the Rhinefield Hotel - what a mistake! The service by the head waiter was abysmal, his attitude was unwelcoming and indifferent. The time was 11:40 a.m. and he refused to serve us a cake with our coffee until 2 p.m. We could not believe the service... More

£40 for a 3 course menu. Food was okay. Amuse bouche of seabass with peashoot and a sauce the waitress didn't know was bland. Starters of smoked duck and smoked salmon were good. For main we both had the monkfish and beef shin. Beef was good. Monkfish rubbery. One carrot and mash. Nice presentation. It came out within minutes of... More

Entertaining some Australian family, so booked a quintessential Afternoon Tea experience at the gorgeous Rhinefield House. Had been hoping to sit on the terrace and just soak up the atmosphere of tea in the grounds of this beautiful stately home in the spectacular New Forest, if the weather permitted...true to an English summer we had to be seated indoors. The... More

We were staying at Chewton Glen over the May Bank holiday weekend and wanted a change of scene for dinner. I had visited Rhinefield House in 2003 and we decided to try out the Armada restaurant. We arrived a bit early and decided to have a drink in the lounge - not much luck as after ordering and waiting for... More

Selling at 36.75 a plate, so they should have been top notch we had expected..... When they arrived there were 4 smallish pieces of... More

We stayed here for two nights and ate in the main restaurant twice. We also had breakfast here, which was excellent The menu offered a good choice and all the food was very good. Service was good. The wine was reasonably expensive as was the meals, but overall I felt the restaurant was good value for money.

Today we visited Rhinefiels house for an afternoon cream tea! Lets start off with how beautiful the setting is its just a shame it was raining but this did not dampen our experience. The afternoon tea was beautifully arranged as was the seating area that were sat. Although a little pricey at £21.95 per person everything tasted lovely and the... More
