About Rhinefield House Hotel - Armada Restaurant

With its intricate wood panelling, tall ceilings and pale pink marble fireplace, The Armada Restaurant displays all the features and period charm of its era. 
In keeping with the restaurant’s name, a wooden carving of an impressive naval fleet decorates the wall, giving the space a distinctly regal feel, and guests can enjoy views
over manicured grounds and gardens as they dine. 
The Armada offers a menu of classic British dishes that have been enhanced with a contemporary twist. With a focus on provenance, many of the items are sourced from
trusted suppliers based in and around the New Forest.
Located opposite The Armada is the enchanting Alhambra private dining room which reproduces the majestic splendour of the Alhambra Palace in Granada – we know you’ll be impressed.

My friend and I had a beautiful afternoon Tea served by a very polite, happy and professional waiter. He was very attentive and seated us by the window . The cakes and sandwiches were all lovely and afterwards we went through the “door of Narnia”!! And sat outside in the sun in stunning gardens and marvelling at the architecture of RhineField House!! Had a lovely afternoon and was able to relax and it was a real treat.

Ordered our sweet afternoon tea quickly, but had to wait 50 minutes for it by which time the coffee had gone cold. The food was fantastic and in such a gorgeous setting. We were truly wowed over by the gardens. Will return :)

We enjoyed our afternoon tea. However , if I had a complaint it would be we arrived ready for 3.30 tea and were soon seated. The tea did not arrive Until 4pm and sandwiches and cakes came at 4.20 which was a disappointing wait. I had to go a find the waitress to ask her for fresh tea which she promptly served us and she was very helpful. Other than the wait It was all fine.

We do not like being called 'Guy's', we are in our 50's/60's and we are not guy's. We were sat in the restuarant/corridor to the health spa, not the best setting for and evening meal, dodging people in sports gear with towels, the one way system needs to find another route outside of the restaurant. We had a lovely meal but would find it very difficult to recommend this restaurant, sorry. Mia in the terrace bar, which we retired to after dinner, was a superstar, she could not have been more helpful and so nice with it, we cannot thank her enough for saving our night.

A slow start at the beginning of dinner, but staff were very attentive. The food was delicious from starter to dessert. The chef did a special plate that came out at the end of our meal as it was out 1st Wedding anniversary. Thank you to everyone at Rhinefield!

Our return to the Armada Restaurant was a real pleasure. Your staff, as usual were very pleasant, especially the Maitre 'D. It was also a credit to you when they said how well they had been looked after during 'lockdown.' Wish you well in these difficult times and look forward to a future visit. A realtreat !
