I was taken here by my partner for my birthday last week as a treat. I was expecting something slightly less upmarket judging by the reviews but it is a very classy establishment. Upon arrival we were asked if we would like a drink in the bar area first which we had whilst browsing the menu. It was very relaxed and we felt we could peruse the menus at leisure. Whilst the drinks were quite pricey, £10 for a small glass of champagne the spirits and mixers were reasonable.
The waitress overhead us mention my birthday and had laid out decorations on the table, such a thoughtful touch.
The food was absolutely incredible. The scallop starter was the best starter I've ever had, they were generous, juicy and perfectly cooked with a fabulous pea and black pudding accompaniment. My partner had the chicken livers, again they were sublime and we both tasted each other's. For main my other half had the duck, it was cooked to perfection and he did enjoy it but it did have a slight stir fry taste to it which he wasn't expecting but it wasn't a problem it just wasn't what he expected. I had the trio of lamb, the cutlets, the fillet and the shepherds pie...all were incredible. I've never had a better lamb dish and the side vegetables and dauphinoise potatoes were great. We didn't have room for pudding unfortunately as they looked fabulous.
If I ever return to Lymington I will not do so without revisiting this fantastic restaurant. Our combined bill came to just under £100 so it's not cheap but it is so worth it. Do not hesitate to eat here, it truly is fantastic and the service was fantastic. Thank you Egan's for a very memorable birthday meal.
