Every time I eat at Elderflower, it's always such a treat. It is consistently the best food I've ever had, and such wonderful service. We went for the 4 dish taster session which was such a delight. Every element of the dish so well thought out. To top it off, the restaurant were able to organise flowers at very short notice. Thank you so much! Can't wait to come back!

The Elderflower consistently produces excellent food, has a very good reasonably priced wine list and is further complemented by professional but friendly and very attentive service. My wife and I confirm that it is always a pleasure to eat at The Elderflower.

Excellent service and very good food. Only minus is that the fish soup and the game casserole a little dry ie not enough fluid. Taste of both was excellent. Both waitresses delightful.

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

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!"
