We enjoyed a beautiful meal in a lovely setting. This restaurant is tucked away down a side street. We had a delicious bottle of champagne waiting for us as a gift from a family member and we were treated to a delicious three course meal of a very high standard. Can't wait to go again.

Disappointing. Meal was superb but service was slow and at the end non existent. We watched whilst our neighbours, who came in after us, were served (slowly) but consistently, even through their dessert choices whilst we were left to wait and wait. Basically we were forgotten and eventually my husband hand to request service from our neighbours waitress!!!!! We brought... More

Really great place for a celebration. Really nice atmosphere. Staff were very helpful. Food was excellent. I'm Vegan and they made a menu especially for me. Summer pudding was the best I've ever had. Would highly recommend it.

The entrance was a bit disappointing and it was full of old people .The ambiance was not up to my expectations though the food and service were fine but I would not rush back.

A day of foul weather was made brighter by the welcome at Lane's. Not easy to find, but well worth the effort. A varied and interesting menu. The food and wine (Portuguese Red) were of a high standard. Most of the customers seemed to be regulars or locals, always a good sign. Thanks for the extra course for my wife's... More

After reading all the reviews we were expecting a fine dining experience. The staff were really helpful and friendly however the food was nice but average and I would have expected better for the price. I was expecting something special but mine and my partners impression was pub food done well.

Was in the New Forrest area for a few days and found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. Was greeted by a lovely waitress who was the owner. The meal was very nice. I saw photos from other diners before I came and thought it looked small and worried I would leave still feeling hungry but this restaurant had excellent reviews... More

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

Went with friends for the first time. Food was fresh and tasty, service is excellent. Allow £50 per person for dinner with wine.
