About The Elderflower Restaurant
Quintessentially British, with a Sprinkling of French
We only visit once per year whilst on holiday, but we certainly will continue to do so. Excellent restaurant!
What a hidden gem . My husband booked here as an extra surprise for my birthday we had a lovely experience also very knowledgeable staff. The soup is outstanding 10 out of 10.
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 accommodating. Thanks very much.
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
Spent a very pleasant evening.Staff very nice and efficient. Shame it was so quiet but was a Wednesday night.
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 lovely evening, good service and the food was sublime
Delicious as ever! W Ondeeful combinations of flavours! Would love to see the New Forest gateau and Mead icecream back on the menu! Please let us know when it is!
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!
Amazing - as usual
Really enjoyed the menu and the food we chose was delicious. We will return to sample other dishes.
Another great meal out at the Elderflower and as ever the service was first class. Highly recommended for anybody who enjoys great food and a wonderful atmosphere.
The 'Cookery club' demonstrations are great fun, you learn new ideas every time. Some of the recipes are now my 'go to'
A lovely way to celebrate a special occasion with a great meal.
Vegetarian meal for our son was excellent, he was very supraised and can’t wait to return A lovely family Easter dinner meal Staff were excellent Thank you so much
Wonderful meal and service. Loved the new menu - best ever! Will be back.
Delicious imaginative food in pleasant surroundings.
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
Lovely food and great service. A real food experience.
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!
