We only visit once per year whilst on holiday, but we certainly will continue to do so. Excellent restaurant!

Simple: Consistency in service and food quality. It's enough to make you want to come back; time after time after time. When so many restaurants fail in this most basic requirement The Elderflower excels - well done!

Very attentive waiting staff. Atmosphere a little lacking possibly due to a handful of diners in the restaurant and the music was license free elevator music, wasn't quite fitting with the nature of the restaurant

Although there was a bit of a catastrophe in the kitchen due to oven breaking down, We wouldnt have known if not told when we first arrived. everything was very good. Service excellent, will definitely go again.

What marks out a great restaurant from a good one is consistency in service and food quality. And that is exactly what you get at Elderflower. Never been disappointed - no wonder they are 4* rated.

Delicious food but a shame to see them understaffed. Was disappointed to not be able to sample the tasting menu but the a la carte options were great regardless.

My Husband & I were really disappointed with our visit to the Elderflower on Friday 13th July, we left feeling your restaurant hungry. Our starter was the calamari which was so salty we could not eat it!!. Our main was starter size and nothing like we had hoped non eventful both courses. our waitress was friendly and took off the service charge off but as this was for our 10th Wedding Anniversary Celebration we were so very upset and will not be returning.

An excellent lunch. The salt and pepper squid was tender and very tasty, the fish soup also delicious and all beautifully presented. Main course fish and chips and mussels and chips were cooked perfectly. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Thank you!

We had a fabulous long lunch at the Elderflower. The service was brilliant and the meals to die for. The produce is clearly very fresh and very well cared for. The chefs know what they are doing for sure. We’d recommend the Albariño too - it’s delicious!

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!
