“Limited menu but quite good”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Shame they only had rump steaks available, surloin might have been a little more tender and the food was not particularly hot. Apart from that the steak did hac=ve a very good flavour.

“Lovely food, great service”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We visited The Amberwood on a Tuesday whilst on holiday in the New Forest. The staff were very friendly and helpful; we were seated and had our drink order taken with 3 minutes. It was a very warm and homely place. The lady who I assume is the owner was attentive and friendly. The food was also high quality. All in, a great visit. The jazz was also welcome!!

Stayed at The Chewton Glen but preferred to eat here on both nights! Enough said! Good food, excellent, friendly service at realistic prices.

“Good food but poor service.”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

We visited this restaurant twice in August. The first time we had a delightful experience. The food was good and the service was attentive and efficient. We enjoyed it so much that we decided to visit again just over a week later.

This time the restaurant was much busier. We were asked almost immediately to place our order and, as we weren't ready, the waitress said she would be back soon. However, it was over twenty minutes until she returned. We then had to wait nearly an hour before our food arrived. When we enquired as to why it was taking so long we were told that a big party had ordered just before us and the waitress reminded us that she had tried to take our order as soon as we arrived. However, at no point did she tell us the reason for this as we certainly could have made our mind up quicker. Also, at no point did any of the waiting staff keep us updated about the progress of our order or apologise for keeping us waiting so long. We felt that we were being ignored.

When our food did eventually arrive it was very nice but the experience overall was not a good one. I'm afraid we will not visit this restaurant again in a hurry.

“Happy Customer”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

I haven't visited this restaurant for nearly a year due to living in Brighton, but have eaten here many times before. I have to say it is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Friendly service, great food and brilliant atmosphere. Whenever me and my Girlfriend are in Christchurch visiting family, we always try to make it down there.

Thank you for providing us with many happy evenings!
