We visited here for breakfast. I had been wanting to visit the New Forest for a long time, and this was the place we stumbled upon. It's a quaint little spot. Low ceilings, uneven floors, mismatched plates, chairs and tables add to the charm. It's a husband and wife team (I assume) that run the place, and they seem to do a fair job. I was just hoping for a little more with breakfast. Your average chain brasserie could probably match the food. My tea was extremely strong and bitter too. Very reasonably priced, however.

How often do you get to drink traditional cream tea in a 400 years old cottage? Well, look no further...the Thatched Cottage offers exactly that! The cottage is idyllic both outside and inside and the ambience is traditional and friendly; it feels a bit like having tea in someone else's living room many many years ago. The staff is very passionate and polite, the scones are home-made and we loved every minute of our traditional cream tea experience - from the beautiful porcelain tea set to the warm taste of the freshly-made scones.

Stopped off for afternoon tea. Lovely setting, relaxed atmosphere. Warm mini-scone selection with cream and jam was delicious!

Great varied menu for all diets, delicious food and beautiful presentation. Came to the Thatched Cottage with a large group of people, and every single dish was perfect. Good value for the quality of food tasted. The waiters were most helpful and attentive. Can't wait to re-visit and taste the autumn menu!
