We ate here one night, whilst staying at the Cottage Lodge. Service was good, very friendly. Food was also good, the halloumi curry was amazing, so much so, that we have since gone home and tried to make our own version!

This restaurant is part of the B and B we were staying in. And therein lies the first issue. It feels more like a B and B breakfast room than a venue for an evening meal (bright lights, laminate floors). Small menu and we both enjoyed he mussels to start albeit with a tiny portion of bread. My husband enjoyed... More

Unfortunately, we're not! However, my chicken kebab and my wife's rib eye steak were both delicious. Chef obviously takes great particular care. Ringwood Flying Saucer beer went down very well.

Whilst this is not a large restaurant it is by far the best in Brockenhurst. The food was excellent. If you want a huge menu this is not the restaurant for you. However, if you want quality delicious food in a lovely restaurant served by experienced staff this is a great choice.

Delicious and well presented food - delectable cheese starter, duck confit beautifully crisp on the outside and moist on the inside, pan fried sea bass showed well-timed cooking and good seasoning. Friendly service. A bit quiet on a wet bank holiday Sunday - this is a restaurant that deserves to be busier.

We visited here last year when it was under different management and were so impressed. We were very much looking forward to returning, but unfortunately were disappointed. The service was chaotic and not smooth. We ordered a glass of white to go with our starter, which didn't materialise. We chased and ended up with a glass of red (even though... More
