An ivy-clad, 17th-century house in an enviable New Forest setting, The Terrace Restaurant overlooks a charming sun-trap courtyard and attractive gardens. A spacious, wood-panelled restaurant, the dining room conveys a sense of relaxed comfort in the country house style. The modern British cooking is innovative with some of the seasonal produce from the hotel’s garden. Hand-dived Orkney scallop, cured pork, dulse beurre blanc and New Milton sea herbs might lead on to ‘Black Welsh’ lamb, garden peas, sweetbreads, Jersey Royals, ewes' cheese and marjoram. Finish with New Forest strawberries, lemon balm, crème diplomate and shortbread.

About the area

Discover Hampshire

Hampshire’s varied landscape of hills and heaths, downlands and forests, valleys and coast is without rival in southern England. Combine these varied landscapes and terrains with secluded and idyllic villages, complete with thatched and timber-framed cottages and Norman churches, elegant Georgian market towns, historic ports and cities, restored canals and ancient abbeys, forts and castles, and you have a county that is paradise for lovers of the great outdoors.

If you’re a walker, stride out across the high, rolling, chalk downland of the north Hampshire ‘highlands’ with far-reaching views, walk through steep, beech-clad ‘hangers’ close to the Sussex border. Or perhaps take a gentler stroll and meander along peaceful paths through unspoilt river valleys, etched by the sparkling trout streams of the Test, Itchen, Avon and Meon. Alternatively, wander across lonely salt marshes and beside fascinating coastal inlets or, perhaps, explore the beautiful medieval forest and heathland of the New Forest, the jewel in Hampshire’s crown.
