When my husband and I are after a high quality meal with friendly, professional service we know we can rely on a to visit Lanes to fulfill our needs. Owner Nicola, as front of house, makes everyone feel special and welcomed into the restaurant. There is a set price lunch menu (2 and 3 course options) with at least 4... More

Our family had a lovely meal here to celebrate my husbands birthday. The staff are really friendly and we were made very welcome. The food itself was excellent and beautifully presented. It was busy so I recommend booking. We will definitely come here again when we are in the area.

We visited last Friday evening after spending a week on holiday in Lymington, on calling to book we were advised it was their 10 year anniversary and so they were only serving a set menu, with each course paired with wine. We agreed to go ahead and were very pleased with the decision to do so! The owner was very... More

Came back here again whilst on holiday in the area this year. This is without a doubt the best restaurant in the area. The service is excellent, the food is exceptional. We will probably make sure we holiday again in this area just so we can again enjoy the excellent dishes on offer. Keep up the good work

A really lovely meal, just my wife and I for our wedding anniversary. Food, service, ambience all in harmony. The tray of petits fours with our coffee was made special with "Happy Anniversary" piped onto the tray in chocolate.

We expected more from this well rated restaurant, but left feeling that the evening had been under par and the food just about average. We ate on saturday evening, the place was fully booked but still lacked atmosphere. The building is quirky and on entering it does appeal, but somehow the lighting is just not right and it felt bland... More

A fascinating layout in an old church, very well adapted. Initially we thought service was a little slow (it was a Saturday evening and the place was full), but overall, it was excellently paced, with enough space between courses to enjoy and digest but never frustrating. The food was really delicious and beautifully presented. The five of us had different... More
