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

Truly fabulous meal at the Beresford today. Every part of the meal was perfectly prepared and we have hardly ever had venison this tender. The service was flawless, too. Definitely deserves the #1 spot on TripAdvisor for the area, so delicious.

Beresfords Restaurant in Balmer Lawn Hotel - we had a fantastic Saturday evening meal - the food was delicious and the hotel is looking really smart. We enjoyed a drink in the hotel bar afterwards which rounded the evening off nicely.

Just eaten dinner on the first night of a 4 night stay. Staff in the dining room are excellent, particularly the gentleman who explained the impressive cheese selection. Reception and bar staff equally impressive. Got a feeling I am going to enjoy this week!!

We were staying at the Balmer Lawn Hotel, so ate in on two evenings. We have stayed at quite a few hotels around the UK and I have to say this is just about the best hotel restaurant we have encountered. We ate here a few years back and, if anything, it is even better now that it was before.... More
