“Best of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

If you want to eat in Lymington, go here. You will not be disappointed. We were a large group and everything from the service to the food was great. This was simply the best food we had in a long time. The presentation is fine dining, the portions not. Great wine list. The price on wine and food are great and fantastic value of what you get. Do yourself and favour and go.

You will not be disappointed, what a great restaurant, really nice atmosphere, the staff were really friendly, as for the food, exceptional, every plate that came out looked to good to eat, fresh ingredients, and tasted great, the chef clearly has passion for food, our favourite restaurant unfortunately closed down, hopefully Lanes will be open for a long time, as we will definitely be visiting here again,

“Quite easily the best restaurant in Lymington town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

We enjoyed an exceptionally delicious meal in this delightful restaurant. The ambience is intimate and friendly lending an informal atmosphere to a sophisticated, beautifully presented meal. The fresh haddock with smoked salmon starter looked almost too good to eat, as did the brill with its accompanying vegetables. The dessert was the crowning glory to a memorable meal. We shall be back.

“Wonderful food and good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Myself and my wife had a meal at the Lanes restaurant during a recent long weekend visit to the New Forest.

The restaurant itself is a beautifully converted split level church tucked away down a side road. It's ambience is very pleasant and the staff friendly and welcoming.

The food was extremely good quality for the prices offered. We enjoyed each one of our 3 courses immensely. The frozen Peanut Butter desert was particularly delicious and rounded off a lovely meal.

Highly recommended.

“friendly reception, competant cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

The restaurant is set in a converted church with ground floor and mezannine levels. Friendly reception, very efficient service, good value, sensible prices for wines.
Lots of sea food;scallops and crab salad particularly good among the starters, brill was a good choice for main.
