A wonderful lunch for our family gathering. Superb food and a really good choice of dishes which suited everybody. Service was outstanding and the friendly staff ensured the occasion was a memorable one for us all. Will certainly revisit on our next get together.

Boasting an AA Rosette for its seasonal European dishes, Moorhill House Hotel packs local ingredients into its lunch, dinner and afternoon tea menus. Nestled in an idyllic New Forest village, the restaurant looks out over the hotel’s beautifully landscaped gardens.

Favourites on the Moorhill House restaurant menu include grilled fillet of haddock with chorizo and chickpea cassoulet, pie of the day with seasonal vegetables and creamy mash, and slow-roasted pork belly with fondant potato, sautéed Savoy cabbage, glazed apple, and local cider sauce. For dessert, savour sticky toffee pudding with toffee sauce, black treacle and almond tart with homemade orange ice cream, or a selection of local cheeses.

Afternoon tea at Moorhill House is quintessentially English, with finger sandwiches, cakes and scones served on a tiered cake stand. Champagne and Pimms are on hand to add extra indulgence to proceedings.

Surrounded by the natural beauty of the New Forest, Moorhill House Burley is a 15-minute drive from Ringwood.

    We arrived to be told that there were no 2 seat tables left and we had to sit on a 4 seater. It then took the waiter over 10 minutes to bring us a menu and did not even ask us if we wanted drinks. After another 10 minute wait we ordered our food, still no offer of drinks in sight, so we asked for drinks and a jug of water. When the water came the jug was dirty and I really did not want to drink anything that would be coming from it. The food was okay not the best I have had and certainly not a 1 Rosetta. Overall the service was horrible and the food somewhere in the middle.

    Beautiful setting and lovely hotel. Lovely design and furnishings and the staff were really polite and attentive.

    Even though we arrived early the staff were lovely and accommodating. The afternoon tea was delicious with a good range of sandwiches and cake. The setting was lovely and we were able to enjoy the garden view, even though we were inside, as it was a little cool for elderly companions outside. A perfect way to relax and escape from the hustle of the tourist attractions in the New Forest. Definitely worth going back again.

    The quality of the sweets in the afternoon tea was good but no possible choice for the tea.

    My friend and I went for a Prosecco afternoon tea and it was delicious! Everything was really fresh and beautifully presented, would definitely recommend to a friend!

    The hotel was beautiful in the spring sunshine and very quiet and private. After having drinks outside on the garden we went into the garden room where our tea was served.
    The food was fantastic and all homemade. We had one gluten free vegetarian and she had a whole selection for herself, we all made a heroic effort but sadly couldn't quite eat all the cake which for a group of 9 women was highly unusual!! We had a lovely time and all wished we could go back at least once a week. You never know, maybe we will!!!

    We really enjoyed ourselves at the Moorhill House Hotel from the11th to the13th of April 2016.The evening meal and breakfasts were very good, but particularly good was the "cream tea" for two which we ate outside on the patio because the weather was so good for April.

    Venue is in a good area of the New Forest but the hotel appears tired. Staff were welcoming and helpful. We ordered tha Prosecco Afternoon tea, which seemed good value at £14.95 but the sandwiches were somewhat dry and the cake lacked imagination.
