If you want to guarantee a place at The Balmer Lawn, then you can book a table in the bar area or the dining room.
We can’t book a table for you on the terrace, but if you prefer to sit outside, we will do our best to seat you there when you arrive.
When the sun is shining in the Summer, people often decide to come down on the spur of the moment so booking the outdoor tables isn’t possible.
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
Great little spot - staff very friendly and helpful. Food delicious. Would highly recommend.
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 food and excellent service
Tremendous food and service on two consecutive evenings. Tasting menus well worth opting for.
Very enjoyable evening. The food was delicious and the staff were excellent
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
We are having our wedding at balmer lawn in 2021... the food service and atmosphere is amazing which also helped us decide on this beautiful venue for our wedding
Lovely setting lovely food very chilled and relaxed
Great staff, great venue
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
Food was all delicious and the service was very good
Always great service from welcoming staff and fantastic quality food, 5 star.
Always enjoy coming to Balmer Lawn
My party of 4 including 2 in large wheelchairs were treated like royalty. It was well worth the long journey from Sussex
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
Good food. Friendly staff. Not enough staff on duty.
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.
Just a few more sandwiches please.
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.
