We have stayed in Lymington four times in the last few years and this was the first time that we found Lanes as it is down a small side road. We went in to look at it at lunch time and were made welcome by both staff and customers. We decided to book a table to eat on Thursday evening... More

New Year's Eve Dinner was absolutely spectacular. Each of our three chosen courses were creatively and artistically presented, perfectly cooked and a complete delight to the taste-buds. With happy, smiling, efficient, non-intrusive but proactive service and the warm ambience success was magnificently achieved. Having mistaken our appropriate arrival time we entered 45 minutes prematurely. Nevertheless, the warmth of the welcome... More

Our work party was held at Lanes which is a smaller venue than we have chosen in the past. The restaurant is a bit like a tardis and has quite a lot of room upstairs. Food was excellent, even for a large party. Normally at events, the food quality dips, but here it was exceptionally good - particularly dessert! Wine... More

Lovely food, good service. Very accommodating for vegetarians even though the choice on menu wasn't much they offered to cook me almost anything I wanted. Well worth a visit.

Occasion was a birthday celebration shared with friends. Food was excellent and finished off with a 'happy birthday' platter of fruit with chocolate - a nice touch. Restaurant is tucked away but don't miss it, well worth a visit.

Have eaten there several times over the nearly 10 years that Nikki & Peter the chef have owned the place. Always consistently good, never had a bad lunch or... More
