Quintessentially British, with a Sprinkling of French

Situated on the cobbled Quay Street in the heart of Lymington, a beautiful Georgian town sited between the New Forest district of Hampshire and the West Solent, The Elderflower is an award winning restaurant that loves cooking for people who love food.

The Elderflower is the realisation of Andrew and Marjolaine’s dream to own and operate their own unique restaurant, expressing their perception of the perfect dining experience.

Head Chef Patron Andrew Du Bourg, with his 19 years of culinary experience in fine dining environments, will prepare modern British food with a sprinkling of French using the best locally sourced, sustainable produce from land and sea.
