Inspired by the rustic dishes and bold flavours of the Mediterranean, Burley Manor and its wood-fired kitchen produce food that is from the heart, to be enjoyed together in relaxed, spectacular surroundings.
Advocates of the slow food movement, time is spent finding the finest produce from as close to the restaurant as possible. Making the most of its New Forest location, ingredients on the Burley Manor menu are sourced from forest to coast using the unrivalled choice of local suppliers, before the traditional wood-fired oven brings out the best in them.
Guests can also enjoy a unique, tailored Mediterranean feast on the chef’s table in the Butler’s Pantry whilst watching their dishes cooking in the wood-fired oven. Chat away with the chefs, enjoy a glass of champagne and sample an array of different dishes from the region of your choice as they come straight from oven to table. Served in the cosy pantry with 2 bench seat, the price includes a bottle of champagne for the table, and a 3-course regional Mediterranean feast for between 6 and 8 people.
Situated in the heart of the New Forest, Burley Manor in Hampshire is just 12 minutes’ drive from Ringwood.

Good, we asked a lot of questions before ordering so we knew what we were getting. I wish the waitress had told us the specials though, we heard a different one tell another table that there was a salmon special, I would have gotten that instead. We enjoyed the different oils with the delicious bread. Our favorite was dessert, the rhubarb and ginger cake tasted like fall. Great atmosphere!

Quality of the food is good and nicely presented. Would have to criticise my 'side salad' with steak. As you have to pay extra for potatoes and vegetables I thought the side salad would be sufficient with the steak and potato. I did not expect a bowl of rocket. To me that is not a side salad! Lovely staff looked after us very well.
We had breakfast in the same restaurant the next morning. Sadly the floor had not been cleaned from the night before so food under several tables and a nice blob of squashed broccoli next to our table. Suggested to a member of staff that visitors should be suitably dressed and not come in wearing dressing gowns and slippers even if they have come from the spa.
Would recommend this restaurant but with reservations

Lovely place and really enjoyed our afternoon. The staff were very friendly.
The afternoon tea is nice, but I wouldn’t go back for it.
Particularly I found the vegan version of afternoon tea disappointing (quite dry and uninspiring). It would be nice to see vegan versions of the normal afternoon tea.

We are local to Burley but have never dined at the Burley Manor I have mixed feelings - the location without a doubt is first class and the Manor itself is stunning When we arrived we went to the bar to have a drink before dinner It took 20 mins to get served at the bar. We were in no rush but it should have been a warning sign. We were seated at our table and left to browse the menu...and browse.....and browse....The table that were sat after us were served and we still waited. No problem We weren't in any particular hurry. What I thought was superb though was the wine menu - bottles could be bought or a 250ml carafe of the same bottle at exactly a third of the bottle price. This is brilliant if wanting just one large glass or if you want to sample the wine with a small glass each and then switch if necessary. However, we could have done with 2 bottles of wine with the length of time the service took 40 mins for starters and then mains took 50 mins to appear. The table behind us gave up at left. After our enjoyable, tasty meal we were asked if we would like to see the dessert menu Hesitant that it would take another 50 mins to receive that , we graciously declined and asked for the bill To my surprise 10% service charge was added to the whole bill which included our self service bar bill In the UK as far as I am aware our gratuity is optional ? I would certainly leave the staff a tip on the restaurant service but to be asked prior would have been nice. Food good Service SLOW If you are hungry go to the pub !

A lovely setting with excellent service let down by average food. Two of us dined. We had three tapas dishes for a stater. Hummus which was very, very cold and a lumpy texture with little taste, squid which was unseasoned and tasteless although the dip was nice if again very cold, plus chicken skewers. The chicken skewers again were a bit tasteless and although made from thigh meat, quite dry. Next my husband had the pork cheeks which were first class with jersey royals - fried for some reason which seems odd for the king of new potatoes. Seasonal greens and mediterranean veg were very good. My monkfish was chewy and disappointing. We went on a Monday, maybe it is the chef's day off. The bill was £95 with a bottle of wine.

Food was very good. We had a selection of starters but 3 tiny chicken sate were expensive for what they were
Service was not good , waiters were hanging around yet we had wait for a drink order .

Lovely restaurant with a great atmosphere. The food, especially the wood roasted duck and the beef brisket was excellent! Great chocolate and orange pudding too!
