We enjoyed our dinner at the Beresfords Restaurant. The place is lovely and felt really special. Service was excellent. We found the food mostly very good but wouldn't rate it 5 stars. We have had many outstanding meals and felt the food wasn't exciting, delicious or imaginative enough to be of a 5 star standard. So overall a very good... More

My daughter and I visited on a busy Saturday night and managed to grab one of the last parking spaces. We felt pushed towards the tasting menu to be honest- the enthusiasm for it was good to hear but we could have made our own minds up. We didn't get any bread- it looked delicious by the way but we'll... More

Have visited the restaurant several times and it never disappoints you. The service is attentive and friendly and the food is exceptional. We had the tasting menu which I highly recommend especially the beef and the risotto and the yummy choc fondant. Will definitely be back

The food was simply okay and the menu rather standard. Overall, it is a good option if you simply do not feel like walking all the way to Brockenhurst. Be ready to pay a premium for standard food...

Booked a table for dinner with my wife for our 5th wedding anniversary. Slightly frustrating that there was no onsite parking available on arrival as there was a function on at the hotel but, a public car park at the end of the drive meant it wasn't a big deal. The food was excellent and well worth visiting for, however,... More

Went for lunch - a gift from our daughter. Food was absolutely delicious. We both had the fillet steak which was probably one of the best ever! Great menu. Staff very attentive and polite. Will be back!

Four of us went for dinner here on a Sunday evening. Lovely location and atmosphere. The food was very tasty (tapas starters were lovely, although the 'affagato' was not great for pudding). My only criticism was the service. the staff did not seem particularly well-trained and almost seemed a bit awkward. In addition, when we had the starters to share,... More

The food was delicious, the staff were attentive and polite. We came for a two night stay and had 2 evening meals a lunch and two breakfasts, all of which were delicious, well cooked and pleasantly presented. Top notch food, perfect portion sizes and delicious deserts. What more could you ask for?
