Lovely food, good service. Very accommodating for vegetarians even though the choice on menu wasn't much they offered to cook me almost anything I wanted. Well worth a visit.

Occasion was a birthday celebration shared with friends. Food was excellent and finished off with a 'happy birthday' platter of fruit with chocolate - a nice touch. Restaurant is tucked away but don't miss it, well worth a visit.

Wow - great place! I wanted to book something unique with great quality food for my husband's birthday. This was perfect! The food was fantastic, the building was interesting and the staff couldn't do enough for us. The service alone was second to none - the staff took a genuine interest in our experience and the owners pitched everything exactly... More

With its bright and inviting interior this restaurant has a quirky feel to it as well. The tables are arranged on the ground floor, a mezzanine level and upstairs. Tables are well spaced despite the restaurants at first appearance small size. A very tastefully completed conversion of what appears to be an old chapel. Our food was fantastic, friends who...

A winter treat is going out for dinner and to come here is am even better treat. The food is just amazing, you would be hard pushed to find a better place to eat in Lymington for sure. On a weekday it can be quiet and the atmosphere is not great then but this is a small price to pay... More

We had read about the owners on their www beforehand and were pleasantly delighted to actually meet them - so good to see that... More

Our party of 6 had a most enjoyable time at this restaurant. The restaurant itself is interesting being on lots of different levels - I understand that it used to be a chapel and you can get a sense of that in its layout. The lady serving us was fantastic and much effort was taken to accommodate those gluten free... More
