The Highstreet Kitchen


About The Highstreet Kitchen


The Highstreet Kitchen is a sophisticated yet laid-back Lymington restaurant, with a menu crafted to reflect the high standards of British-European cuisine, and an ideal spot for an impressive group dining experience. The Highstreet Kitchen menu delivers fuss-free dishes without the frills typically associated with fine dining, instead prioritising satisfaction and simplicity.

Occupying a historic Grade-II listed Georgian townhouse, the dining room is spacious and filled with natural light, widely spaced marble tables and comfortable sage green seating making it ideal for larger get-togethers. Whether it’s a large group or a private booking, it’s a grand but elegant location for a celebratory lunch or a birthday dinner. For private hire, the maximum seated capacity is 40 guests for a banquet-style meal, though smaller group hires are available.

Chef Gavin Barnes has dedicated considerable time and effort to this long-term project - located in his hometown - where the restaurant proudly presents the finest seasonal ingredients sourced locally from Hampshire and nearby counties. By nurturing strong connections with regional suppliers and producers, the menu is regularly updated to highlight the best quality produce.

To start, choose from South Coast mackerel with escabeche and mussels, Isle of Wight tomato served with burrata and pistachio, or venison tartare with New Forest beetroot and black garlic. Expect to see the likes of slow confit Somerset lamb shoulder, with wild garlic, fondant potatoes, and oyster mushrooms; Dover sole meuniere, with shrimp, and Jersey Royal potatoes; or a balsamic glazed shallot tarte Tatin. Just don’t discount a classic Sunday roast dished up with all the trimmings - yes, that includes cauliflower cheese. For those with a sweet tooth, desserts include a vanilla cheesecake with rhubarb and clotted cream ice cream. Or you can stay local and finish with a cheese board from the Lymington Cheese Company served with Dorset biscuits and relish.
