I recently organised a family dinner and chose the New Forest. I wasn't sure how it would be but at €22 for Sunday Lunch I figured we couldn't go too far wrong. From the first phone call to book they were very accommodating. There were 11 people and they immediately offered us a private room. We ate in the Library... More

Myself and my daughter stayed here recently to get together for some quality time and for my daughter to meet our new puppy. The accommodation is well laid out and very comfortable. The cleaner had been a little under pressure as I arrived early so she had to call again, but this was dealt with immediately. The lodge was lovely... More

I've played golf a number of times on the New Forest Golf Course over the past 10 years and on each occasion availed of the restaurant service. I have always found the food to be excellent and good value. The staff both in the Pro Shop and the restaurant were always very friendly and most helpful.

We were recommended to this venue by our B&B host Enda at Loughnagore House. We were late arrivals and the restaurant was superb. Food was lovely and we relaxed after a long trip from England.

Just stumbled across the above yesterday for lunch. A wonderful find. A great welcome and the food was absolutely superb. Plenty of fish as well. Manager knew his food sources very well. Ignore 'golf club' - I don't play golf and have no interest in it! Go for the excellent food, pleasant surroundings and location. And they also have very... More

Attended my niece's wedding here recently. What a charming enchanted place. It was idyllic for a wedding. It dates from the 1600s, a beautiful Irish Manor House with a great history. With over 300 acres of grounds there is plenty of room to roam and walk, lovely areas for those extra special photographs, a superb menu and of course Jimmy.... More

My family and I had a beautiful meal at the restaurant during our stay in Kilbeggan whilst travelling around Ireland and found it to be well worth a visit. The menu has something for everyone and you can choose the three courses for $30 Euro or choose individually. We went with the three course and all us, including my ten... More
