Quintessentially British, with a Sprinkling of French

We can confirm we are currently fully booked for lunch and dinner for the rest of the year.

HOWEVER, we will however be opening tables online should we receive any cancellations, so please do check our website particularly a couple of weeks before your preferred dates as the deposit requests will be sent out for the existing bookings by then.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause, and we can only hope to welcome you soon.

The Elderflower will now only be offering Chef Patron Andrew Du Bourg’s surprise 4 course menu at lunch time and 4, 5, and 7 course tasting menus at Dinner time. Due to this, and having limited space; we now no longer can accommodate children at this time. Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.


If you have a booking with us, please know that we will be in touch via email nearer the time to process your deposit and secure your booking. Please also note that the deposits are non-refundable.

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 20+ 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.
