The Balmer Lawn Hotel

Lyndhurst Road, BROCKENHURST, SO42 7ZB

1 rosettes

Now that shooting the wildlife is off the agenda, this imposing pavilion-style Victorian hunting lodge in a charming New Forest setting trades as a friendly, family-run operation aimed more at pampering or business with its excellent spa, sports and conference facilities. Beresford's restaurant is the fine-dining option, an impressive, grandly-proportioned space recently made over in a decluttered contemporary style - wooden flooring and high-backed seats at unclothed darkwood tables. Expect modern cooking with a healthy showing of prime-quality, often local, materials - perhaps confit rabbit rillettes with plum ketchup and home-made pumpernickel bread, followed by roast saddle of lamb with beetroot mash, roasted butternut squash pur?e and curly kale, or 28 day-matured Hampshire steaks from the grill with confit tomatoes, fat chips, mushrooms and watercress. Inventive endings run to 'textures of milk and honey' or classics like treacle tart with clotted cream.
