The menu description is understated, when it arrives it a delight, the mussels are to die for, not to mention the cheese and ham mash.

The menu was varied, service friendly and attentive and the food was lovely. The setting was beautiful. Only thing I'd have changed was an earlier booking so we could have also had a drink outside. Great value. We will be back.

We have no negative comments to make - only positive ones. Your level of service is second to none, and the food is beautifully presented and cooked to perfection

Seated our family by the door/garden so the kids could play out. Thoughtful. Service and food great. Would suggest option to add service charge be presented on the payment terminals as we didnt have cash to pay a tip and wanted to.

I was greeted by Jess who took me to my table and she was very friendly and immediately got my dog a bowl of water and doggy ice cream, she was superb. Neil brought over my drinks and again very friendly and chatty and took the time to pay attention to my doggy. Thank you all.

Excellent service from efficient and friendly staff. Superb food. The roasts were excellent and the chocolate mousse was to die for! Our lonely negative comment would be that the piped music was intrusive and not required in such a beautiful setting. We will return. VInce and Jane Jones

Very slow. Booked a table for 7.45pm and got our main meals after 9pm. Felt a little bit like the outsiders as we weren't staying in the hotel.

Had a fabulous romantic meal with my wife on our last night staying at the hotel. Very enjoyable with a good choice of pre dinner drinks, wine at the table and food. Service was fabulous, all staff were excellent particularly Alexei (apologies for the spelling) who was very accomodating and also wears the most amazing suits, a very sharp dressed man. All in all maybe a little expensive but still a very high quality experience. We will definitely eat here again when in the area

We had a family celebration to celebrate birthdays held during lockdown. It was a wonderful evening in a great setting commencing with Prosecco served on the terrace before adjourning to the Beresfords Restaurant.The food was delicious and the staff attentive and friendly. A great venue and we will certainly visit again soon. Val New Forest

The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. You can tell they take a lot of pride in what they do. Would definitely recommend the taster menu with wine pairing! Delicious.

The food was lovely. The service was excellent. I like the way the public rooms were decorated but I was a bit disappointed by our 'superior' bedroom. Although It was very big and had a lovely view, I thought the way it was decorated was dated and rather dreary.
