We enjoyed lunch here on several occasions and are always keen to return. The food is decidedly French and very well prepared. Staff are very hospitable and service is excellent. The restaurant is part of Carey's Manor Hotel. It is set in a lovely garden and the entrance is beneath a grape vine archway. We seem to return at every opportunity.

I was reluctant to post this review as I didn't want to tell everyone how great this restaurant was I wanted to keep it as a secret for myself! Its so fantastic.
The staff were so friendly and very happy to give recommendations for wine and food choices. The atmosphere was perfect, lovely french music in the background and it was busy with people without being too noisy.
The food was outstanding. I had the duck and my boyfriend had the lamb and we landed up fighting over sharing our deserts as they were so tasty. Excellent wine list too.
It was great value for such lovely food and I really look forward to visiting again. It made my birthday feel so special. Merci beaucoup!

A late dinner on a Sunday night after a very busy day of walking in the beautiful countryside. This restaurant was only about half a mile from where we stayed in Brockenhurst and we were greeted by a young man who was an absolute asset to the restaurant. Superb service including a greeting by name (we had booked for 9 o'clock so they were expecting us but it was a nice touch). A nice evening, food was great, service was great and I would definitely recommend.
