“Very, very nice.”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Our third visit to this lovely little restaurant in The New Forest and once again, excellent. Great food and great service - the way it should be. A little expensive but worth it. Can be a bit quiet during the week which means the atmosphere is missing but the food and service make up for it. Very clean, parking on site and, during the day, views of the forest.

“A perfect place to celebrate a birthday party”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

We were perfectly looked after from the time I made the booking when we were sent a personlized menu for my sister's birthday to the night itself when the service was the sort that made you feel special without being over the top. Great food, lovely atmosphere and definitely the right price. Thank you for such a great evening

“Little Mere - a delightful restaurant in New Forest”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

A delightful restaurant - although called Tea Room we went for dinner in the private room. A total of 14 of us had the best meal ever. The food and service was exceptional and the scallops the best I have ever tasted (even if they travelled down fresh from Scotland!). Most guests were from big cities and were extremely impressed, food this good in London would require £100 plus a head whilst for 15 people we all had a starter, main and dessert plus 9 bottles of wine including service was a mere £60.00 per head. It was a treat but plenty of other options of food and prices as we pushed the boat out and picked the best we could. The decor is a lovely mixture of old and new with a relax and cozy atmosphere.

“Well worth a visit ! Great food, wine and service!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

A group of 14 of us ate at Little Mere recently and it was excellent. We had a private dining area (so as to avoid deafening the other diners with our high pitched cackling!). The staff looked after us brilliantly, the menu was extensive and the food certainly didn't disappoint. They have a great selection of wine which was reasonably priced. All in all we all had a wonderful evening at Little Mere and I can highly recommend it. I'll definitely be back to try the cream tea!
