For the time being they have turned the front terrace into an undercover beach themed dining space, named 'The Lodge Kitchen and Bar'!

The menu varies daily and booking is definitely advised; you can enjoy breakfast Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings, then the all day menu (available from 12pm everyday) applies for lunch and dinner with a mixture of options from fine dining to pizza and pasta. Staff were happy to adjust the breakfast menu for children and there is a dedicated children's menu for lunch and dinner (including build your own burger, fish and chips and sausage and mash amongst other options).

The covered area is complete with heaters and is perfect if the British weather isn't on your side with cosy blankets provided if you need a little extra something warm.

The outdoor terrace with views of the cricket pitch is perfect if the weather is a little kinder!

After your meal you can easily explore the New Forest and Brockenhurst village- all within walking distance of the hotel.
