Top 5 New Forest restaurants


If like many of our guests, you’d like to add a bit of a treat to your weekend away and fancy exploring some of the finer eateries of The New Forest, then these restaurants are definitely my favourites!  Go for the full menu or simply pop in for a drink – some even offer a delicious afternoon tea!

The Mill At Gordleton – set just outside of Lymington, The Mill is perfect for a cosy drink by the log fire in the Winter, or a long lunch on the terrace in the Summer.  The food is superb – I’d recommend the beef fillet any day. 

Cambium – Inspired by nature, Cambium is a relaxed but chic restaurant set within Careys Manor Hotel in Brockenhurst.  Service is fantastic and the tasting menu is simply divine!

The Pig, Brockenhurst – My New Forest favourite.  Escape for a lazy afternoon of relaxed dining in the garden conservatory.  The piggy bits are great for nibbling over a glass of wine with friends.  Mmm I must go back soon…

Limewood – I’m recommending the afternoon tea as it’s the best I’ve ever had (full menu also available).  Enjoy with tea or a glass of fizz – or if you’re feeling naughty, why not try one of their ‘chocktails’!

Montagu Arms – Enjoy Michelin star quality at the Terrace Restaurant.  I’d recommend this as a perfect venue for a special occasion.  Go on, treat yourself!

One word of advice, if you’re visiting in peak times I’d strongly recommend booking a table at any of the venues to avoid disappointment. 

 It’s made me hungry thinking about all these fabulous places right here on our doorstep!  Be sure to share your experiences with us next time you go by sending us pictures of your treats #PoshNosh #SCG
