Excellent service and some interesting and delicious meals prepared. Especially the Christmas Pudding Souffle with brandy ice cream. A little bit pricey but would definitely recommend.

We had the Sunday roast special and it was fantastic. The main course roast was great value and perfectly cooked. Yes the extras (a delightful pudding Christmas soufflé) make it a little more expensive but it just added to the pre-Christmas special. This is the way to do Sunday Roast!

Whenever we stay in Lymington we now always ensure we have an evening at the Elderflower booked as we have never been disappointed. This visit was no exception - we were apparently the first to sample the new seven-course tasting menu which was delicious as ever. Every course imaginative with great textures and combinations of flavours and the wine pairings were expertly done as always. We always feel thoroughly looked after when we visit. Highly recommend!

Very friendly and professional staff. Booked mainly for afternoon oysters and Prosecco but couldn’t resist trying some more from the menu and we weren’t disappointed. Even the home made bread and butter.. special.

We had a fantastic meal in lovely surroundings. It was especially good as the chef was able to fully cater for my partner's food allergies, which often causes meals out to be stressful for her. The service was impeccable. Thank you

We had such a lovely meal. The chef really excelled himself with our varied and interesting vegetarian tasting menu. We felt very privileged to have had it created just for us! Katie was really helpful with her emails prior to our visit and made sure we were looked after well. We will definitely be back....thank you so much

Well thought out dishes with good, sometimes unusual ,combinations which all worked together. Perfectly cooked with top quality ingredients. We had the 7 course tasting menu.

Usual high standards of excellent food with informal, yet professional, service. Not been for Sunday lunch before. It was excellent value. As Arnold would say, "I'LL BE BACK!"

Had our anniversary here and we were not disappointed, great food,good ambience and lovely informative staff. Michelin standard food. We had 5 course taster menu and each course delivered to our table was explained to us in detail, reasonably priced for its standard. Anniversary card left on our table encased in a ribbon was nice touch. Thanks Elderflower staff made our visit memorable

Wanting a special venue for our food-aware daughter's birthday, we chose the Elderflower for a tasting menu, after considering a number of restaurants in the Bournemouth area. We are very glad we did; it was an outstanding success. Every course was carefully designed to produce both expected and unexpected mixtures (who would have thought that parsnip and white chocolate are such excellent companions?), and the service was a perfect balance of attentive but not intrusive. The waiting staff are really knowledgeable about each dish, to a degree we has never previously encountered (so often it's 'Let me go and ask the kitchen', but in this case those serving us clearly knew how each dish was made – we wondered if in fact they had taken part in preparation). It so happened that one of us has a sensitivity to a common food ingredient, and when booking I mentioned this. The very helpful Katie said she'd ring back with some suggestions, and she did, several times, until the restaurant had, in effect, created a bespoke menu. Really thoughtful and considerate, and meant that all of us had an equally satisfying experience. Not cheap, but good value, and very reasonably priced for a tasting menu of this quality. BTW, I don't understand the comments about dated decor. We thought the ambience very good, and perfectly suited to the building. It certainly didn't feel like an old people's home (see one Tripadvisor review) when we went. Thank you, Elderflower team.
