Situated in a old Chapel, lots of charm, unfussy, reasonably priced. Avocado mousse cheese cake to start was amazing, so too was the twist on Coronation chicken but using Crab. Lamb rack superbly cooked, Halibut with a crumb crust and ratatouille style veg delicious. Trio of chocolate desserts divine with Artistry in sugar work from the obviously very talented Chef....

Just returned from an absolutely delicious lunch at Lanes, a joint birthday treat from my brother to me and my husband. The ambience is great, service attentive and welcoming. The food from the lunch menu was excellent and a good choice. What more can you ask for? Thank you Lanes for a wonderful lunch, see you soon!

Being a little off the high street the restaurant is down a rather unassuming lane so can be easily missed. But it's worth finding as it is consistently a great restaurant. Inside is bright and quirky with tables over 2 floors and a mezzanine. The food is fabulous, but do try and save some room for pudding. The homemade ice-creams... More

Visited for a celebration dinner on a Friday evening and we were delighted. A modest restaurant on the surface serving really high quality food. Loved the ambiance and the restaurant is brilliantly laid out on many levels so there is a feeling of space but also privacy. My avocado cheesecake was just divine and I will have to come back...

The Staff were very attentive, however our seating at our small table was not very comfortable, lighting too bright, no candles, lacking in atmosphere, food disappointing, very expensive for what is on offer as there is much competition in the area.

Our family had a lovely meal here to celebrate my husbands birthday. The staff are really friendly and we were made very welcome. The food itself was excellent and beautifully presented. It was busy so I recommend booking. We will definitely come here again when we are in the area.

We visited last Friday evening after spending a week on holiday in Lymington, on calling to book we were advised it was their 10 year anniversary and so they were only serving a set menu, with each course paired with wine. We agreed to go ahead and were very pleased with the decision to do so! The owner was very... More
