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.

Fantastic service, great variety of options on the afternoon tea. Option for kids at a great price and our waiter was fantastic with them.

For a festive afternoon tea treat I t was flat. No atmosphere and it was very cold. We’ve experienced better with you in the summertime! Luckily we were a table of 5 and had a lot to talk to each other about but it wasn’t the treat we were quite hoping for on this occasion unfortunately.

Stunning venue and perfect for a special occasion or a treat. Dinner was delicious and 3 courses with a bottle of wine for 2 came to £140 so not crazy prices. All the food was exemplary and we will be returning for sure.

We had a lovely evening! In a beautiful setting!! Richard our waiter was great. He was friendly but not intrusive. The staff were welcoming and managed their COVID-19 checks as discreetly as possible. The 4 stars for Atmosphere was out of your control as this would have been down to COVID-19. There weren’t many in the restaurant to help create an atmosphere, however the staff did their best. Can’t wait to return in the New Year

We had a wonderful afternoon tea at the Rhinefield House Hotel. The food was delicious and there was a lovely Christmassy atmosphere with the lights, trees etc. We had a walk round the grounds which were interesting in spite of it being winter. Our waiter Marc was very attentive and we enjoyed our treat from our children.

Every aspect of each dish was quite excellent, a first class three course meal (preceded by delicious cocktails). A little disappointed with the Armada restaurant. It was looking a bit tired in its quality and care, such as a badly scratched and poorly maintained wooden floor, and fairly bland Christmas table decorations (better to have none).

It was my wife's birthday and the team provided her with a lovely little cake and a plate with 'happy birthday' written in chocolate. That was a lovely thoughtful touch. We'll be back for our anniversary. Marco and his team did an excellent job

Many thanks to Josselyn who arranged a wonderful dinner for my partner and me in the Alhambra Room - the food was delicious and service was top-notch! Thank you to the lovely service team - you made our evening special and you were great!

Sadly - this was my third visit - and I brought 5 guests with me. The service was personable and engaging (as always) - but it took too long for food to be served between courses - and when it arrived it was cold. So disappointing as the first time I visited it was exceptional... which is why I booked for a very special family event. Hopefully this was a one off.

We were served gone off old clotted cream. Didn’t see a server for at least 45 minutes each time throughout our 3 hours there. Really disappointed, even moreso that 3 of us have been poorly due to the dates clotted cream. Unfortunately won’t be recommending this to my clients.
