Booking dinner at this outstanding restaurant is the first thing I do whenever I know I am going to be staying near Lymington. The food is imaginative, the wine list excellent and the staff a delight. The Elderflower fully deserves its excellent reputation

I understood that was restaurant overlooked the water and you didn't tell me mention that it didn't when I requested a window seat over the phone. As I have a problem walking on cobbles I asked if the car could drop me outside the restaurant entrance and you said that would be a problem. As it was our cab had to drop us off at the end of the road as apparently no cars were allowed to drive any further. I didn't enjoy any of the courses, and the dessert was terrible. My partner ate my food! I informed you that night was my Birthday but had no recognition from you to acknowledge this. A complimentary glass of champagne each might have been very acceptable considering the price of the bill!

What an incredible find! We've been coming to Lymington by boat so many times and simply walked past this treasure of a restaurant. A little secret it will not remain as this chef is ripe for Masterchef Professionals! We enjoyed the lovely 7 course tasting menu - inspired and demonstrated the versatility, innovation and respect for local produce and flavours... and the lemon souffle at the end was to absolutely die for! We will return!

An utterly beautiful meal with superb wine. The staff were attentive, friendly and are obviously proud of their perfect restaurant. The perfect experience for my boyfriend's birthday meal. Thank you!

We went tp the monthly 'club', where Chef cooks a meal from ingredients that can be bought at a supermarket. It was delicious and we always learn some new tricks. Great fun

A lovely ambience; beautifully set out tables in the old cobbled lane to the Town Quay. Very attentive and friendly staff. The food however was overcomplicated. British? Not sure. For gourmets, perhaps. There were only 4 choices for evening Main Course, and there were changes to the printed choice. You will need to ask the waitress to repeat the descriptions more than once as they were rather confusing. Then Amuse-bouche arrived, and these must have comprised a dozen different things, beautifully presented, but we lost track of what we were eating. The consommé with 4 cheese puffs starter was not pleasant, being cold jellied stock within a small dry puff and a swirl of cheese goo on top, set on what looked like bird seed. I was expecting a hot soup. The venison was nice, but overpriced. My partner's fish of the day (hake) was good, but squid ink risotto within oyster shell made his lips all black! If you want the chance to sample plankton, or burnt seaweed, this is the place. We didn't opt for dessert, as the one thing I might have chosen took 25 minutes to prepare. Less fussiness please in Lymington and we might return.

We continue to return when we are looking for a special meal and consider ourselves lucky to have such a great restaurant on our doorstep. Truly imaginative and innovative dishes! The chef has really excelled with his Christmas Menu. I would cite the stuffed pear (Partridge in a Peartree?) as truly special.

An exceptional dining experience. Imaginative combinations of food beautifully plated and presented. A combination of a top class chef assisted by excellent waiting staff in a restaurant planned and furnished to provide a complementary atmosphere and ambience.

Don't take this the wrong way, but we were "surprised" by Elderflower's excellence. I've endured much worse food, wine and service in far grander settings.
