Very high standard of service & food, which exceeded our expectations. Loved the attention to detail - the Crown Prince squash risotto wasn't like any other I've had - its beautiful turmeric colour really stood out on a grey plate, and it was garnished with sage churros! Wow. My husband enjoyed his sirloin steak too. Well done Beresfords.

An expensive disappointment ! The bar area and restaurant are stylishly decorated and have a good atmosphere but the restaurant service left much to be desired. We were taken to our table and then ignored for at least 25 mins , no waiter came to take drink orders or food orders. When someone eventually did come there were no smiles... More

We went to Beresfords on a Saturday night to celebrate a birthday. Overall, it was pretty tasty food, a good atmosphere and friendly service. It was tainted by a couple of basic problems which are easy to get right. We ordered a mixture of small plates to share as a starter, the ribs were great with an amazing smokey taste... More

This was our first visit- what an experience. We had the Taster menu- 7 courses of the highest quality cuisine. The attention to detail, presentation and quality was exceptional. The waiters have so much knowledge of the food, wines and make it a complete experience. The atmosphere is superb making the evening a real highlight. Don't delay and visit as... More

We came here expecting a very good meal but what we didn't expect was a superlative meal of Michelin standard- the cocktails stated the whole thing off with very well made and reasonably price cosmopolitans . The home made bread was warm, rich and dark yet soft and light ! excellent. This bode well and what followed was fabulous- a... More

We decided to go for the tasting menu and it was off the scale. Just fantastic. So nice for chef to come out and check all was okay and took time to talk us through the dishes in more detail. Perfect.

WE stayed at the Cottage Lodge (excellent!) in Brockenhurst but decided to eat out. This was a good idea because the Beresfords restaurant was extremely nice, service was polite, attentive, and professional. Food was beautifully presented and of superior quality. We eat out a lot and we both found the dishes to be really delicious. I had ravioli with shin... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant, and was quite disappointing. The pastry chef here is absolutely wonderful and the little loaf and home made butter you get as an accompaniment to the starter is to die for, as are the sweets and afternoon tea. The main menu is not large, and quite adventurous, if you wanted something a... More
