Steak

Formerly the Georgian Dower House of the Northerwood Estate built in 1820 and used as a hunting box by King George IV, the restaurant new chic interior is complete with walnut tables, potted plants, interesting fabrics and contemporary artwork, creates a warm and inviting space for a casual dining experience.

Situated on the edge of the New Forest, Swallowfields Farm is family business, run by a fourth generation of farmers. Turning their cattle out to graze in the New Forest just as farmers have done for centuries, we source prime hand-cut steaks from The Farmers Butcher and proudly feature these on our menu, alongside a mix of modern brasserie classics.

                            Does the basics well but an attempt at curried vegetables was dreadful! Sent it back and ordered fish and chips. Burger was excellent as were the waiting staff

                            I used this place for business meetings quite a bit before the pandemic, although the booking system has changed, you can't just "drop in" the facilities are just as comfortable as they always were. Food, service and setting all beautiful.

                            Burger undercooked, lamp a little tough but tasty. Fish was perfectly cooked and delicious. But for the price point, certainly not worth the amount spent. Would have paid half. But at the time, it was the only restaurant with seating.

                            Terrible food, terrible service. Grilled chicken was actually fried! Had better steak from Aldi! I wanted to make a complaint there and then however my husband was too embarrassed so we settled the bell and went elsewhere for dessert. I really begrudged paying the £180 bill!!!! The only nice thing was the wine! Had to serve out our own knives and forks that was just plonked on the table. How on earth did this restaurant get two AA rosettes?? Will not be returning!!

                            This restaurant disguised the fact that it is the restaurant of the Forest Lodge Hotel,Lyndfield. The Restaurant had been moved into a much bigger room with ZERO ambience,there were just 2 other diners, the food was execrable; my wife’s starter was a few peas with a blob of goats cheese, and mine was braised squid which was appalling, both were sent back as they were stone cold. We ordered steaks very rare and medium rare, they arrived medium and medium rare, we couldn’t be bothered to send them back, the one saving grace was the triple cooked chips which were very good. All in all an appalling experience.
