I do HIGHLY recommend to make reservation for these places prior to your stay because a) these place are very popular and b) due to the new distancing guidelines seating space is limited.
All three places are within easy walking distance from Britannia House. It doesn’t get better than that.
My top three favourites I can fully recommend without any hesitation.
Most creative cooking and fabulous wine list
The Elderflower (2 mins walk)
Up-market restaurant with exquisite food and wines, a total treat and with astonishingly reasonable prices.
5 Quay Hill, Lymington, SO41 3AS, Tel: 01590 676 908
Note: During the lockdown the Elderflower impressed me the most with superb home delivery food, very creative home cooking “DIY” sets, e.g. the famous Passionfruit Soufflé and esp. providing us with essential commodities, e.g. flour when the supermarkets had run dry. They have also taken the new safety measures very serious and the restaurant is super safe to go to.
Best atmosphere, great food
King's Head Pub (2 mins walk)
A wonderful cozy pub with candle light and a proper log fire. Super portion, good selection of beer and nice wines.
Quay Hill, Lymington, SO41 3AR. Tel: 01590 672 709
Note: The cosy small Courtyard is now fully non-smoking, clean and tidy and has been painted in a beautiful marine blue. Due to the new safety measures, the bar area is “free” making it even more pleasant to go there.
Super location, great view
The location of the Haven Bar & Restaurant is fantastic overlooking the Yachthaven Marina, the Solent and Isle-of-Wight.
King’s Saltern Road, Lymington, SO41 3QD. Tel: 01590 679971
Note: They impressed me with their new safety measures.
