If you're after some unforgettable eats in the New Forest area, you'll adore the selection of restaurants in Lyndhurst available on Quandoo's dining platform. From fine British cuisine to creative Indian fusion, Lyndhurst's restaurants offer plenty of tastes and aromas to savour. And, with country pubs dotted around the area, and the cosmopolitan delights of Southampton not too far away, nobody will be stuck for a dining venue in this part of the world.
In Lyndhurst itself, restaurants serve up some fabulous British dishes. If you've been hiking or cycling through the New Forest all day long, seeing the cars at Beaulieu or just soaking up the region's natural beauty, what better way to end the day than by guzzling some good old British grub in the town centre? At places like the Stag Hotel, you can crack open a bottle of fine French wine, and pair it with venison burgers, beef stew, or lamb shank – hearty, robust meals that will warm you up in winter and recharge your batteries in the summer.
But if spice is on the agenda, Lyndhurst's restaurants won't disappoint either. In fact, while it's tucked away at the heart of a royal forest, the town has some of the most imaginative South Asian chefs around. At spots like Indian Fusion, you'll come across menus which mix the best of British cooking with the unique spice blends of southern India. Enjoy a delicately seasoned lamb shank, sweet potato cutlets, or just take your pick from an endless array of chef's specialities.
If you're still not sure where to dine after checking out the local restaurants in Lyndhurst, zoom out, browse around, and discover Hampshire and Dorset's diverse dining options. Just to the north-east, you can make a night of it with gourmet food and cocktails in Southampton's Polygon nightlife district, or settle down at enotecas and trattorias for some gorgeous Italian fare. Further south, Lymington and Ocean Village are lesser known dining gems as well, boasting Asian tapas joints, and some of the finest Italian eateries on the south coast. It's the kind of area where you're sure to find something that's hard to resist.
