We had a celebratory lunch at the cloud as it was my mother’s 80th birthday. I have been here several times before and it has always been a pleasant experience. The cloud is a small privately run hotel in the heart of the New Forest on the outskirts of Brokenhurst. On arriving we were shown into a small sitting room area with comfortable settees and armchairs so that we could have drinks and peruse the lunch menu before being shown to our table. This is quite a quaint old fashioned way of doing things and it’s something that either you like or you don’t. Personally I like it. After taking our orders the waitress showed up to our table. The restaurant is very pleasant too with a view out over the forest. The meal was of a reasonably good standard and prices are about what you might expect for this type of dining. This is a good setting for those special occasions and one which most people will enjoy.
