We had the two course for £19.50 option. Vegetables are extra, which adds to the cost. My Pumpkin tart and plaice were delicious and the plaice was perfectly cooked. Service was not the best, but it was friendly and cheerful. Tea/coffee served in the library added to the sense of occasion and relaxation. looked lovely with festive decorations and the... More

I have taken a number of clients here for lunch. The set lunch menu offers amazing food in a beautiful restuarant for the price of a pub lunch.

The service was bad as soon as we entered - not in keeping with the hotel it is situated in. Our food was not up to standard. My starter was quite nice but my husbands was bland and not flavourful at all! As a vegetarian I only had one choice - pasta. This was supposed to have a chilli kick... More

I visited Lime Wood for a friend's birthday lunch treat. When we first arrived we stood in the entrance waiting for the front of house manager to finish speaking with other guests. Another guest who had just come in from cycling, could see we were waiting, for pushed right in to be dealt with before us. I did express to... More

Visited Lime Wood with friends for Afternoon tea. The food came plated but consisted of beautifully made sandwiches, light fluffy scones served with cream and jam, selection of mouth watering pastries plus you were invited to have a slice of one of the cakes on display. They even offered extra portions. However, the experience was badly let down by the... More

This is the second time I have attended the HH&Co backstage cookery school, once for fish and this time for game. It is such a wonderful happy day, with huge amounts of information packed into each session and a wonderful lunch included, albeit one you have prepared yourself! Already I am looking at what is available next year.

Little confused by this restaurant. Decor is more suited to a french bistro rather than Italian. We did have a early sitting so the restaurant was pretty much empty during the time we dined so lacked atmosphere. We also felt the bar in the hotel area lacked atmosphere and couldnt relax due to the number of wasps in there! Having... More

The location of this restaurant within the beautiful Limewood Hotel on the outskirts of Lyndhurst is truly stunning. The restaurant enjoys wonderful views over the ornamental gardens. The staff are very friendly but young and amateurish in their approach. Probably the fault of inadequate training. My wife and I had booked for the seasonal set lunch at £25 for three... More

We visited on lovely sunny day which made the experience even more special. Drinks before lunch in the courtyard bar were the best precursor to our lunch. Attentive staff and a great choice on the 3 course lunch menu. Food was delicious, portions just right and beautifully presented. A stroll in the grounds afterwards completed a wonderful time
