Featured New Milton Restaurants
1. The Kitchen at Chewton Glen British, Modern restaurant in New Milton Chewton Farm Road - BH23
“I avoided the stuffier looking dining room, and went for the kitchen instead (a good choice)”, says one fan of the more relaxed option at this super-swish country house hotel: part of the cookery school. It doesn’t seem to be aiming for fireworks, rather “decent food, good value, helpful staff, and a really well-looked-after setting”.
2. Chewton Glen British, Modern restaurant in New Milton Chewton Glen Rd - BH23
This famous and “beautifully situated” country hotel provides “a super experience all round”, from the grand dining room to the 130 acres of immaculate grounds. Chef Luke Matthews has led the kitchen for many years (he joined as a sous in 1993) and sends out many “gorgeously presented dishes”, although arguably “the wine list is the star of the show”. Perhaps unsurprisingly, a meal here can seem punishingly “expensive if it’s not part of a room-plus offer” – perhaps dip your toe in the water with a “splendid afternoon tea”.
3. Pebble Beach French restaurant in Barton-on-Sea Marine Drive - BH25
“Lovely views from the terrace over to the Needles” (“try to grab an outside table on those rare sunny days”) elevate a trip to this “light, airy establishment”, and by all accounts Karl Wiggins – who took the helm from longtime chef Pierre Chevillard in 2018 – has more than risen to the challenge, with “delicious”, “straightforward” seafood remaining a particular highlight.
