As I had a takeaway I can't comment on the drink and atmosphere, only food which was excellent.

I have eaten at the Elderflower many times over several years and I have never been disappointed. My husband and I think the chef has the magic touch. Produce is second to none and prepared with flair which is always a delight. Service is warm and friendly. We will continue to return for gourmet experiences and I wish them all the best for the future.

We had the 7 course tasting menu on Christmas Eve and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Service and food was excellent and we felt really taken care of. Food was superb and would love to come back once they reopen to try their a la carte menu also.

Sorry to say we were very disappointed in the lunch menu choices, the fish & chips( had better in local fish & chip shop )the tiny potion of the pasta which was very disappointing. As for the sticky date pudding ... no sign of any stickiness! Looked like a slice of sponge cake ! I did bring it to the attention of waitress , saying it was a bit misleading. !! Having only 3 other tables at the time it couldn’t be blamed on being over busy! This wasn’t going to be shared , however you did ask for feed back & I do have to be honest!

We called in for lunch on a cold day - just fish and chips and sticky toffee desert. There were only 3 other tables occupied. There was therefore no excuse for the food not be warm/hot enough, especially the desert and custard. Especially as the fish was a bit 'fluffy' as if it had been overcooked. A pleasant meal and staff, but disappointing as far as the kitchen's performance is concerned.

The food is fantastic, something we have never found anywhere else. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. A little bit expensive, compared to other places, but what you get and the presentation is out of this world.

Lovely evening - quite excellent food with equally good wine pairing which made for us introductions to both which we had not had before. Only downside - my chair was hard after over three hours on it! Otherwise the ambience was just fine.

The Elderflower is a gem. The setting, atmosphere and service are all excellent, and the food is invariably absolutely delicious. The skate cheeks starter on the current menu was one of the best starters I have ever eaten.

We absolutely loved The Elderlower. It is a beautiful, intimate restaurant with a contemporary feel. You can trust that the food is well sourced and it is all delicious. The service was warm and welcoming. I would recommend the raspberry cocktail too.

Many thanks for an excellent evening. Restaurant felt very safe with careful but not intrusive precautions. Service was wonderfully timed and the food quite exceptional. I was good to dress up once in a while and matched the surrounding. Many thanks. Michael Boyle

We loved our meal! The only disappointment was we could not have more courses. The food was superb, a real surprise, and the restaurant is in a lovely part of Lyndhurst. Service attentive and educated also.
