Afternoon Tea is served daily 2.30-5.30pm
If you want to guarantee a place at The Balmer Lawn, then you can book a table in the bar area or the dining room.
We can’t book a table for you on the terrace, but if you prefer to sit outside, we will do our best to seat you there when you arrive.
When the sun is shining in the Summer, people often decide to come down on the spur of the moment so booking the outdoor tables isn’t possible.
Exceeded my already high expectations.
We enjoyed our stay at Balmer Lawn and were well looked after. The good weather was a bonus at this time of the year
Excellent Covid safe facilities.
Felt the member of staff was rushing about so much it made us feel rushed. Starter was tiny, mains was decent size, dessert was too much. Can't stand my glass being refilled when a couple of mouthfuls have gone - makes it feel like you're desperate for us to order another bottle. In all honesty wouldn't return to Balmer Lawn.
Overall the hotel was excellent. Small parking unit and the rooms could be better equipped when comparing per night cost.
Very enjoyable and friendly experience. Best Sunday roast in New Forest.
We had a fantastic afternoon tea, the food and service were impeccable!! Dining at the Balmer lawn is always a treat!
Excellent service and nothing was too much trouble
Wonderful afternoon tea. Staff very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious! Thank you.
Lovely experience, wonderful food, staff were all very friendly and accommodating.
Staff were extremely friendly and efficient. Food was of a very high standard We thoroughly enjoyed our stay
Outdated rooms, poor dinner food and inconsistent staff. Check out too early at 10:30
We always enjoy dining at Beresfords. With the current situation the menu was understandably a little restricted but the staff lovely and welcoming. Only one blended whisky on offer tut!tut!. If G&T is your tipple, the sky’s the limit.
We have had a lovely two night stay . Couldn’t fault anything. Will definitely be back again
Food has been amazing. Could not fault the Cote de Bouef....wonderful.
Really felt cared for by the staff in these difficult times. They went out of their way to answer our questions about the various menu items. We loved our meal (except the skinny fries!!) Thanks for making our staff so delightful.
Excellent service and food. Everyone very efficient and welcoming
All the staff are amazing, efficient and very friendly. Food excellent too.
We had a superb dinner and the dish of the day - Sea Bass was excellent. The menu choice was great and the staff very friendly. We had a lovely experience for our Wedding Anniversary and will return in the future.
The food was outstanding and we love coming but we waiting about an hr from asking for the bill to eventually paying after asking to pay 3 times to 2 different staff members. Our experience was still great overall but just disappointing at the end
Great food and service
Food was interesting and well presented. Cooked breakfasts suffered a little from Covid restrictions, I think. Staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our experience.
Pizzas were exceptionally nice. Friendly courteous and relaxed service.
A very fine tasting menu meal with the flight of wines as part of a birthday celebration. A lovely experience. We’ll try the fish tasing menu next time.
