November 2012 Guest review by good friends of LWL in Hampshire, Tony & Peggy Hand (see pic above), thank you both very much!

Visited Egan’s Bistro in Lymington on a wet and windy Wednesday in November, and still full which must say something about its pulling power.

At £17.95 for 3 courses or £15.95 for 2 courses, Egan’s remains great value. By that I mean the combination of an imaginative, well presented menu, fresh ingredients (menu changes daily) and convivial ambience.

Four hungry diners spent a very pleasant 3 hours munching their way through
3 courses with coffee and drinks for £25 each.

We had a St Clements to stimulate the taste buds(Orange and Bitter Lemon)

Starters included Ham Hock terrine with marinated beetroot and piccalilli, warm goats’ cheese and avocado salad with bacon, mushrooms finished with truffle oil and pine nuts, tiger prawn with crisp Vermicelli in ginger, sweet and sour broth, Shetland Mussels in cider finished with apple. All very tasty.

To follow we had: Hampshire lamb cooked 3 ways with pea mash, redcurrant and rosemary jus. Rabbit and bacon, mallard, local pheasant, with red braised cabbage and
black cherry sauce. Sea bass with Chorizo, prawn & spring onion risotto, sauce Bonne Femme. Monkfish, tiger prawns and scallops with Lyburn cheese & Meaux mustard sauce

Being gluttons (well it is Autumn), we also had desserts, Trio of desserts, Satsuma pancakes with ice cream, Local and French cheese with biscuits. Again delicious and nicely presented. Followed by coffee

If I was being picky, the sweet and sour broth was a bit too salty, the red cabbage too vinegary and serving after eights with the coffee a bit of a let down.

Nevertheless, overall a very enjoyable meal and highly recommended to LWLIH
readers. Do book at lunchtimes to avoid disappointment.

Total Yummy Factor


Guest Review by Tony & Peggy Hand

5/5 = Cannot be improved upon, 4/5 = Very good, 3/5 = Good,
2/5 = Satisfactory, 1/5 = Poor, 0/5 = Terrible

The higher the “Yummy” factor, the better the food & service. The higher the number of £ signs the more expensive. (Roughly one £ sign = £5 per head)
