Coffee was awful
Great location, excellent menu and friendly, efficient staff, all in relaxing surroundings. Will definitely keep returning!
We ate at the lodge. The surroundings are lovely. Staff are very attentive and the service was great from the moment we arrived. They also made special allowances for my elderly mother, I had asked if she could be close to heater and they made sure she was nice and warm. Thank you and look forward to seeing you very soon.
Food was excellent, the Mimosa could have been with fresh mango juice and was Prosecco not champagne Outdoor set up is brilliant
Beetroot salad with only two small piece of beetroot in it. Asked for no bread bun on burger as I wife does not eat bread but came in a bun Had to send grapes back on cheese board as they where mouldy. Had two cheese boards three selection of cheese on one board and four selection on second board. Not very impressed as we spent £190.00.
Lovely atmosphere, great service
We went back to The Lodge for the second time last Sunday. The food was excellent with lots to choose from the menu. The service was great. Would definitely recommend. We will be coming back again
Lovely place, really enjoyed the food and brilliant service. Will be going back again
Always a great experience with delicious food!
Excellent food and service. Loved the bottomless coffee.
Great food and atmosphere. However, the service was not as good as it could be. We were sat in the part nearest the main entrance and had to fetch a waiter on several occasions to take our drinks and food orders.
A very busy night but service was perfect, food was great.
it was a lovely meal and the setting under current circumstances was very good , great way to celebrate my birthday 👍
I had a great evening with a lifelong friend. The atmosphere was good although the music so loud, at times it was difficult to have a conversation. Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge music lover but on this occasion without the ability to dance to it, nightclub loud, it was at times more of an intrusion than a enhancement. The food was fine, the drinks expensive, the service faultless. A lovely evening but a treat rather than a weekly event. £107 for 2 was borderline overpriced!
Our waitress was lovely and so helpful! A brilliant evening, with wonderful food and the music added to the atmosphere.
Really good food drinks and atmosphere.
Our visit to The Lodge at Balmer Lawn was fantastic - the quality of the food, the level of service and atmosphere were superb.
We had a great evening thank you- lovely food, great atmosphere
Fantastic service. It was our 1st outing since lockdown and coincidentally our 11th wedding anniversary. The staff went above and beyond and made us feel safe and welcome. Food was great aswell as atmosphere. Hats of to you all we will be back!
As always Balmer Lawn Hotel is a pleasure to visit . Our lunch time visit was very much enjoyed by the 4 humans and 3 dogs . The service is excellent , nothing is too much trouble for staff and the food is delicious . Hope to see you again soon.
Great venue, great service. If you are in the New Forest well worth a visit.
Very nice experience
Very creative outside seating experience, well done and thank you...
I was disappointed with the food, 2 of us had fish and chips, the fish was watery and the mushy peas weren’t nice and at £17 each it was expensive! Shame as had been looking forward to coming.
The fish in the fish and chip meal could have been cooked a little more, some of the batter was not as crisp as it might have been and appeared slightly under-cooked. Excellent staff, very enjoyable atmosphere, canopy worked well despite the worst efforts of the weather, knee blankets appreciated.
