Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A group of 19 family and friends gathered to celebrate a very special birthday. The planning started about a month before when we were given a menu to cover all tastes. Our group included a coeliac and a vegan and these people were catered for....On the night we were greeted by friendly staff and the everyone enjoyed their meal. The food was well cooked , good portions , nicely presented. Highly recommendedMore

This was our first visit and a place we never knew about even though we have lived in the area for over 30 years and what an excellent experience. We recently found a Facebook advert detailing their winter special which tempted us to book. We...were not disappointed, fantastic friendly staff made the evening special and the home cooked food was amazing, a place we will certainly visit again and highly recommend to friends and familyMore

Hi thank you for your kind words it was our pleasure meeting you all.

This was planned as a special evening and a Date Night as we had both been poorly over the Xmas and New Year holiday. The atmosphere was sadly lacking as we were the only people in there for the first hour,However the waitress was bright...and cheerful. I have to say that we both thought the food was good, however when I asked for an extra slice of bread and butter I was informed that there would be an EXTRA charge of 50 pence!! for the same, also a large glass of Red Wine was £9.70!! which we considered extortionate. Look out for the Service Charge of 10% which, under the circumstances we did not pay. Our LAST VISIT!!More

The food at Le Chateau is excellent - both breakfast and dinner - individually cooked by the hosts. Very surprised it wasn't more full for dinner.

Fantastic evening meal at Le Chateau. Highly recommended if in the area or local to Cadnam. Food was delicious, and really filing! The waiting staff were super helpful and friendly. Definitely recommend the baked figs for starter and the chicken or pork dishes for mains....Crème brûlée for desert was pretty lovely too!More

Arrived in a very wet and windy evening. Warm welcome from a nice smiley lady. Room nice and comfy. We had a drink in a bar before dinner, pleasant decor in bar and dining room. The dinner.. we had three courses, was absolutely beautiful, mainly...fish dishes as we are fish eaters more than meat. Chef certainly knows his stuff! Slept well and breakfast a good selection of continental. Will certainly be back!More

The woman who runs the place is disgustingly rude and food is average at best. Save your money and go elsewhere.

Staff are very friendly and welcoming. The meal was however a little disappointing. It was OK, but nothing particularly special. We had gone because it gave the impression of being a bit of a 'cut above'. The menu isn't standard pub grub for sure, but...then that isn't what one expected. The reality though was that the delivered quality didn't really match the pricing, in our opinion. The overall sense was of a venue that had aspirations that it didn't really deliver on. Which is a shame, as we will likely be in the area again and would love to have a trusted slightly more upmarket eatery that we were keen to go back to.More

Staff took our booking down incorrectly and despite us clearly evidencing that they had made the mistake, they remained cold and blunt towards us. When we contacted them via email at a later point to Express our dissatisfaction, they wrote a passive aggressive message about...us on their facebook page, which was then removed a few hours later when they must have realised how utterly unprofessional it looks. Quite possibly the worst customer service I have ever been provided. Go up the road to the Empress of Blandings instead. Nicer food and you won't get spoken to like rubbish.More

Just visited Le Chateau for Dinner. Had the best homemade cauliflower and cheese soup, followed by Venison medallions, fresh vegetables and saute potatoes. Lovely friendly attentive staff. Best local restaurant around and not overpriced.
