White Tails restaurant is a small restaurant in Brockenhurst and we loved it. Ramsey the owner greeted us and looked after us the whole evening. Food was beautifully prepared, presented and tasted lovely and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or return. Thank you Ramsey and...we will see you again one day. Regards, S.More

Excellent meal, food was amazing, I recommend the Stroganoff with steak strips. We were looked after with real care and consideration by Ramsay, the owner. First class service is hard to find but makes an evening worthwhile. This is a small intimate restaurant but worth...seeking out. A real treat in the beautiful village of BrockenhurstMore

An excellent little restaurant with fabulous service from the owner. All the dishes explained and nothing too much trouble. The pork loin and fish cakes were delicious. Very Covid attentive, which was good to see. A very enjoyable evening 😊

Great food and friendly atmosphere. Were fortunate enough to get in for dinner and were even able to bring the dog seated in the separate snug area which we had to ourselves. Ramsey, who is the owner and manager, was very welcoming and clearly passionate...about providing a excellent dining experience. Could not fault any aspect of the meal or service, it was all first class. Highly recommended.More

Had dinner at White Tail and had a great time. Ramsey, the owner, looked after us and his knowledge of the menu, ingredients and his passion for the food was second to none. The restaurant is running to strict COVID measures, which we really appreciated...and gives you a sense of how much they care for their clients and staff welfare. Highly recommend if your down on the New Forest!More

We stayed at the Cottage Lodge Hotel and dined at the Whitetails Restaurant twice. All I can say is it was incredible. The staff were attentive, funny, informative and made great recommendations from the menu. The food was amazing. We went to James Martin’s Kitchen...restaurant and it wasn’t anything on the Whitetails. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant if you’re staying in The New Forest and looking for good food. Thank you. The O’Neill’s and Frasers.More
