A tranquil escape in the heart of the New Forest, the Stag Restaurant at New Park Manor is a family-friendly setting for modern British dining, including classic afternoon teas. Eclectic styling with regal touches features throughout, and there is a stunning conservatory dining area with views out into the grounds.
Fresh produce from the New Forest and the hotel's own garden goes in to the New Park Manor menu, giving diners a fresh taste of the local area. To start, there is local game terrine with tomato and balsamic chutney and crisp bread, while mains include delicacies like seared stone bass with charred vegetables, gnocchi and tomato caper dressing. There are special children's menus too, with inventive healthy tweaks, counting towards their five-a-day.
Afternoon tea at New Park Manor in Brockenhurst includes homemade cakes and scones with clotted cream and artisan preserves, with a choice of bubbles alongside the loose leaf teas. There is also a selection of fine wines from the bar to complement any meal.
A true taste of relaxing countryside indulgence that prides itself on catering for the whole family, New Park Manor is a 6-minute drive from Brockenhurst Rail Station.

It has gone down hill since its been turned in to a spa. Very dissapointed. Was expecting a expensive menu not people coming in to dining area in dressing gowns.

It made a lovely day out for my four grandchildren and me. We trekked across the forest, stopping at Bolderford Bridge for the essential bit of stick throwing and dabbling in the stream. Then onward to New Park, coming through the back way past the polo fields. The restaurant and hotel staff welcomed us warmly into the bright and cheerful conservatory where we were joined by my daughter and her husband. The lunchtime menu choice offered the adults a delicious selection: my favourite was the ham hock, topped with béchamel and cheese on ciabatta bread with two poached eggs atop, which was my choice. My daughter had the Dorset crab linguine with lemon chilli and parsley, and son in law was drawn to the Aberdeen Angus beef burger with Applewood cheese, tomato and apple chutney on brioche bun with sweet potato fries. Yummy! But the piece de resistance was the wonderful Young Forager's Menu for the children: Secret Seven spaghetti and meatballs served with seven veg sauce, sweet chilli chicken stir fry with noodles, and 6oz steak with hand cut chips, peas and broccoli (twice) were chosen, and very much enjoyed! Afterwards the children and son-in-law all chose the Cheeky Chocolate Brownies and ice cream. All clean plates showed how much they enjoyed it! After lunch the children played in the garden on the trampoline and the other play equipment, finishing with a game of football against the adults on the football pitch. Finally it was time to leave the hotel and wend our way back home down the lane, over the road and through Holland's Wood, crossing back over the road into Martin's Road and Waters Green. A lovely day out for all of us!

On arrival it took a while
Of staying at reception for anyone to notice us, then we were sent up to the next level (sorry, but the first thing I noticed was the steps needed a good hoover...) then we waited for someone else to find us..... the man who served us couldn’t have been more charming. Again, we went to sit down, and I had to brush the crumbs off of the seat..... The cream tea itself was really tasty, and the most delicious scones. We went to take my daughter out for a play in the garden, which was great, until we came across the dog poo, right next to the play area. I did try and discreetly tell the lovely man who was serving us, where upon I’m sure he sorted it out. You have such a lovely venue, and it has so much potential, but these little things I’ve mentioned make a real difference in the experience. I hate to say it, but the devil is in the detail!..... I hope my comments come across as constructive, as the overall experience was just fine, but I wasn’t exactly blown away.

Our lunch experience was atrocious. We went expecting a pleasant experience having got married at the hotel several years ago. We haven't been there since it's refurb. & having seen its fresh new look on the internet we were looking forward to see the changes. Basically it's now a crèche with most people in dressing gowns from the spa including in the dining room. We were sat at our table quickly even though we were a bit early. I had requested a table in the conservatory which was empty except one table - we were seated in the main dining room. When I queried it we were sat in the conservatory but the screaming of a young child soon changed our minds! The moving around was accommodated without fuss. Then it went downhill. We placed our food order do far so good. We raised our eyebrows when the waitress rubbed water from our table with her sleeve. 2 lunches came out correctly but mine was wrong so it went back. While serving 2 lunches the waiter stretched across my husband to serve my mum dropping food on the table rather than walking round the table. Some time later another incorrect lunch came out. By this time my husband had tried his and it was Luke warm with a virtually raw poached egg on it so it went back. I finally got mine still not as expected but close enough but the bread it was on was rock hard. We received a message from the manager via the waitress apologising and we received the entire meal free. The food & beverage manager did speak to us before we left and apologised again and offered us another free meal - we will not be taking him up on the offer! Thoroughly disappointing & a completely different hotel to the one we were married in!

Had a lovely meal here with my partner to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. We stayed at the hotel in Brockenhurst, New Forest and The Stag restaurant had the most beautiful views in the gardens. I am vegetarian and they had an amazing variety of food on offer - I had a lovely soup to start, with a risotto for main and sorbet and fruit platter to finish. We were the last ones in the restaurant yet we weren't rushed to leave, and they brought us lots of different things to try that we hadn't ordered. Overall, great meal to accompany a great stay at the hotel.

It was ok, would have liked better service. It was booked but no table available so we were put on a landing that wasn't the most comfortable for afternoon tea and interrupted by the cleaner! We were offered an outside table but it wasn't warm enough. The sandwiches had been left out so were a bit crispy round the edges with little filling. Cakes were nice and scones were excellent. It would have been good to have a more child friendly afternoon tea for my daughter.

The welcome and attention by the main restaurant manager was good. The food was good but not outstanding. It was well cooked and presented. We enjoyed it but have been to other Luxury Family venues, most notably The Ickworth, and for the price we'd expect something more excitingly put together and presented. Also the full vegetarian options were limited especially for someone who doesn't like risotto. However, the chef did cook some lovely pasta for my wife. As I said overall a nice meal, in pleasant surroundings but not outstanding as we'd hoped.
