There seemed to be quite a choice of restaurants in Lymington, but we were very pleased we chose this one for lunch! The menu was innovative, and all the food well prepared and presented. The staff very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Small menu, well presented, safe British cooking. A medley of fish included Red Mullet, scallop, plaice and salmon with a scallop roe sauce. Small, safe wine list
