On the outskirts of Lyndhurst, this hotel has had a thorough makeover, creating a hugely stylish environment. The menu covers a lot of ground, from burgers and light bites to a well-conceived starter of quail three ways (poached breast, confit leg and a mini Scotch egg) with a herb salad, creamed leeks and Albufera sauce. The kitchen generally mines the modern British vein, seen in seared veal tongue with spicy blackberry ketchup, sticky baby onions and watercress, and seared salmon fillet with a dressing of lime, basil and sour cream served with smoked haddock and potato brandade. Pudding might be rich double-layered chocolate pavé balanced by milk sorbet.
