Private Dining

All four of our New Forest restaurants are renowned for their culinary excellence and award-winning food. Our chefs take pleasure in designing menus that use produce local to us so that you can enjoy a true taste of the New Forest when dining with us.

If you would like to experience this same fine food from our restaurants but in a smaller more intimate group, perhaps to celebrate a special occasion or a formal dining experience with business colleagues, then we’ve got private dining rooms in all our hotels for you. Our friendly staff in the hotels and our chef’s will enjoy arranging a private dining experience and menu especially for you.

Bartley Lodge Hotel
Experience the ultimate fine dining experience at our classic country hotel, Bartley Lodge in Cadnam. Dine in our grand Baronial Hall, where you can host a private dinner for up to 80 guests on a number of tables or you may prefer to share one table and a few bottles of wine with a 50 seated table. With a moveable dividing wall the Baronial Hall can also accommodate more intimate dinners with one side allowing for up to 30 guests on separate tables or a large table of 20 and the other half up to 40 guests with the option of one large table of 30 diners. Whether you choose to dine altogether on one table or spread out, let us know your specifications and we will work with you to create a dining experience at Bartley Lodge that you will remember for a long time.

Come to our contemporary town hotel, BEST WESTERN Forest Lodge and show off to your guests with creatively presented and expertly prepared food that will be talked about for months after your event. Choose from the chic Forest Bar with its trendy decking or the cosy cellar bar to begin your evening with pre-diner drinks before retiring to your private dining room. Choose between the small and intimate Georgian Glade dining room or the fashionable and larger Glasshouse dining room. Seat up to 12 guests in the intimate Glade around a large table or in the Glasshouse seat up to 40 friends or colleagues or for a more personal touch 30 of you can sit together on one large table. Both private dining options allow you and your guest’s time to relax and enjoy the two rosette quality food while a dedicated waiting team will ensure nothing is forgotten.

Beaulieu Hotel
Take time to savour the delicious dishes created at our forest retreat with friends and colleagues at our Beaulieu Hotel near Beaulieu. We can help organise private dining for intimate parties of 8 or more in the Applemore Room or larger parties of up to 80 in the Ipley Room. Enjoy pre-diner drinks in the gardens or in the bar overlooking the unspoilt heathland before indulging in a night of fine food and wine in the privacy of your own dining room.

Moorhill House Hotel
Forget about the stress of everyday life and lose yourself at our village hideaway in Burley where you can relish the award-wining food created by the Moorhill House Hotel’s chefs with a private dining experience. With both the Vereley and the Burley rooms available for private dining, you have the option of intimate luxury or larger formal dining. Private dining in the Vereley can seat up to 36 guests or one large table of 20, while the Burley room can host up to 90 guests. Whichever option you choose you will be guaranteed to celebrate delicious food, tastefully presented in a secluded hotel with beautiful grounds to wonder in or sip champagne in before you dine.
