Mediterranean

Inspired by the warm, relaxed way of life and simple, stunning food of the Mediterranean, the kitchen is at the heart of everything that we do with our vibrant restaurant and wood-fired oven undoubtedly the main attraction.

Following the seasons, allowing nature to play a leading role in our menus, it's about a handful of the best ingredients, sourced well from the New Forest and across the British Isles, and prepared simply, with the help of our wood-fired oven, to make the most of their flavours.

We advocate the Slow Food movement too, but don’t worry this doesn’t mean your food is slow to cook, we just spend longer finding the most special produce from a close a radius as possible – that’s the only slow bit.

Our wine list offers an ever-changing choice of whites and reds, and uniquely they are all available by a third of a bottle carafe (250ml), making it easier to explore the wine list and sample something new.

                                                    Staff very friendly and welcoming. Environment lovely. However disappointed with the menu which was limited and not as I had seen on line. Two of our party do not eat meat and apart from a risotto there was little choice on the main menu. We were therefore left with a limited choice of small plates,tapas, which were not exciting. Humous was nice but the salad was soft and tasteless and the mushroom arancini had no sign of mushroom. Overall a very expensive lunch for two of our party. Such a shame as the setting is lovely.

                                                    Steak was superb, albeit expensive! No one else in restaurant on the night so very quiet. Menu was VERY limited choice.

                                                    It was a mixed experience here. The menu is quite small which is to be expected as it’s all cooked fresh. The food was nice, it’s just a shame because we sat in the conservatory and as much as it was pretty it was very dusty, if you look up the chandeliers are covered in webs and dust. The sides are as well, the space could be used in a much better way in my opinion. It was an accident but I had a whole drink spilt on my lap by a waiter and it took my partner going and saying something to the team for them to do anything to compensate us for it as I was then sat with a wet skirt and pants! It’s a nice place, very comfy and the food was lovely. It’s just a few things you’d expect to be different when you are paying these sort of prices.

                                                    Brilliant service and lovely food. Smaller portions for the price but still worth it. Would definitely recommend. Only issue, they don't take cash and we weren't aware of this before dining.

                                                    As always it is a beautiful location. Especially during Christmas.staff are always friendly and everything is as should be. However,the meal. All started very well until our main courses arrived. Where was it. My wife and I dine out all the time and know the difference between fine dinning and simply an offering. We asked if we could have a side order of vegetables and the waitress was most helpful and took our dishes away to keep warm until a serving of vegetables was prepared for us. No problem at all. Until it arrived back. Stone cold vegetables. I mean stone cold.infact there was a strange taste to them, as if they had been served up from left overs from another dish or serving. Disgusting. We decided It wasn’t worth making a complaint and asked for the bill and left disappointed. Burley manor is a regular spot for us and this was a poor start to our Christmas celebrations. You need to improve,there’s better out there.

                                                    Lovely lunch to celebrate my husbands birthday. I asked to be given a nice table for the occasion and we got a lovely corner table with great views across the garden. The service was just right and the food was very tasty. They were running a 2 or 3 courses menu for a set price which was reasonable for the quality of the food. We were surprised it wasn't more busy given it being a Sunday but we felt this worked in our favour and most of the other diners were seated in the orangery, so we got the main restaurant to ourselves which wasn't an issue! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be going back again soon hopefully!

                                                    On line booking was poor. Although it was not possible to book before 14.00 for lunch there were plenty of empty tables at 13.20, so we got a table earlier than planned.

                                                    Food and service was good, nice setting but expensive, especially when a £11.50 service charge was added.

                                                    Really nice place to go for a special occasion. We ordered chateau briand, medium rare and it was medium well which it a shame to have it cooked like that, the waitress just said she would tell the chef and that was the only response we got. Other than that we had a lovely evening

                                                    Due to staff shortages and COVID sickness of a member of the kitchen staff Burley Manor was unable to provide the full lunch menu so we had to make do with snack lunch.

                                                    Beautiful rural premises although food presentation was a little pretentious. Steak was presented in a small fry pan on a wooden platter so the red hot handle facing me proved to be an extremely difficult barrier to my food! The best part was drinks on the terrace after supper.

Food was delicious and there was enough of fresh vegetables and a decent size portion of pork to fulfill most appetites. I would recommend the experience to my family and friends.

                                                    There was a wedding on when we arrived. Never been to venue before followed the signs to park for restaurant it was full (people getting out of cars for wedding) went further up to more car parking to be told to park in the overflow car park by a member of staff. But no signs for that. We now know it was a gate to a field but with no cars on it how were we to know, drove back into restaurant car park and there were sports cars trying to get around. It was a nightmare and stressful. Also then didn't know if we were walking into a wedding as everyone outside was from the wedding. Signs when there are multiple things going on at a venue would be really helpful as we were really looking forward to coming down south for our holidays and going somewhere nice to eat. Just ruined it for us. Appreciate the doors being open in conservatory but wasn't the warmest of days, and was windy and didn't get asked if we were ok with it being open. Beautiful venue but first impressions count and just put us off. Did speak to reception about it and she just said sorry

                                                    We enjoyed 2 meals here last week, once with a party of 5 and then a party of 3. Both meals were very good and everyone enjoyed their menu choices, which varied from steak, sea bass, fish of the day,(once skate, once hake}, and the polenta based option. The sides were tasty and desserts fantastic. My preference was the chocolate fondant. Delicious. Our tables each time were well located in the main restaurant. Plenty of space at the table and around. The service was very good. We have eaten a number of times over the years when we visit Burley and have not been disappointed.

                                                    Lovely setting. Sadly the service, wine list and food were pretty mediocre at best. Hopefully some of those things are just teething problems from reopening.

                                                    We had a lovely meal at Burley manor - food was fantastic! We were the only people in the restaurant so it was quiet but lacked some ambience. Only some drinks were available which was a disappointing start but the food made up for!

                                                    Fantastic place to stay or eat dinner. Myself, my partner and my parents all had dinner last night and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The veggie option was honestly one of the best veggie dishes I’ve ever tasted. Bravo Burley Manor, we’ll be back to stay at Christmas.

                                                    It was a lovely evening, food was excellent. Service before the meal was spot on, however after the meal they seem to forget about you, no offer of drinks and had to grab someone's attention to get the bill. Great experience though

                                                    Burley Manor is in such a gorgeous setting and is so peace and relaxing. The food is always superb and beyond delicious. Service was exemplary as always too. It’s one of my favourite places and I’m becoming a bit of a regular. Got two further visits booked already.

                                                    I was impressed that two ramps were quickly put in place for my wheelchair to enter the restaurant. It was a very sunny day but rather windy so we lunched in the conservatory although some people were eating outside. There was a varied and appetising menu, reasonably priced for such an appealing venue. As always at Burley Manor we enjoyed a delightful experience.

                                                    Excellent dinner menu shared with 5 guests. The Pork belly was cooked perfectly. So much flavour in all of vegetable side dishes. Staff were so helpful and well trained. We have dined at the Burley manor severely times however last night was the best menu. Top marks for cleanliness.

                                                    Overall a good experience especially taking into consideration that Covid restrictions were in place. Beautiful setting and the staff were friendly and polite. Our meal was delivered in a reasonable amount of time and was delicious as shown by our completely empty plates. My only criticism would do be that the puddings which were a very good size need a larger size of ice cream or cream. I would probably have asked if I could have had more cream but I was full up and could not finish my pudding. We will probably visit again.

                                                    Food was really mixed. The meat and fish dishes were dry and over cooked (kofta, lamb shoulder and mackerel). The mushroom arancini was very nice. Desserts were nice. Bread was stale, but chef did provide one free dessert to make up for this. The staff were pleasant but came across as inexperienced. Not sure I would rush back.
