If you are looking for typical French Cuisine then this is where to come in this area near the Lymington Ferry Terminal. Every aspect of the menu was good as were the wines available. We all chose steaks which were cooked as requested and the service was both efficient, pleasant and with a cute smile. I can even forgive them... More

My friends and I ate here when staying at the Carey's Manor Hotel for a spa break. We were due to eat in the other restaurant but changed our minds last minute and the staff were incredibly accommodating getting us a table at short notice. All staff were so friendly and polite and the food was fabulous.

This is a French style eatery, our hotel deal included the 3 course Winter Warmer menu or food up to value of £35 per head could be chosen from the main menu, this menu was OK for us though. Starter of soup was good and the cold meats plentiful, the salmon main course was very good, also my cheeses plus... More

Really nice place, with lovely decor and ambience. Food was very good and service was excellent. We both had fillet steak, which was very very nice. Starters, desserts and wine were also great.

Christmas Day Lunch at Le Blaireau was our first experience of Le Blaireau, I don't think that it will be our last. We were a party of seven, and without exception, everyone of us thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas lunch experience. The menu was excellent, with some good alternatives to the traditional Christmas Fayre, the food was delicious and very nicely... More

I've eaten at this restaurant several times now when staying at the hotel and every time the food has been delicious. Good wines and service as well. Do not let the quirky decor put you off the food is excellent - Only suggestion is loose the mannequin during the next refurbishment!

I am always a bit worried about hotel restaurants. Often they are just average however Le Blaireau was wonderful. The food was delicious and we couldn't fault it. Thank you for a lovely evening.

This is one of my favourite restaurants. This is my 4th visit, always go out of my way if I'm heading Bournemouth way from Worthing. The food, the setting, the ambience, the service, all just perfect. It looks pricey! It isn't. My favourite, the minute steak, delicieux!
