The Lord Bute & Restaurant

179-181 Lymington Road, Highcliffe on Sea, CHRISTCHURCH, BH23 4JS

2 rosettes

Once the entrance lodge to Highcliffe Castle, this eye-catching boutique hotel is superbly placed for access to the golden beaches and blustery clifftops of the Dorset coast. Modern within, the classical dining room boasts an orangery extension and well-drilled service to boot. The 20-year residency of chef Kevin Brown has ensured continuity in the cooking. A broad range of choices encompasses timeless offerings such as duck terrine served with spiced pear chutney and toasted brioche, followed by a fillet of hake wrapped in prosciutto ham, steamed samphire, crushed saffron potatoes and clam, king prawn and mussel cream.
