Le Blaireau offers a little corner of France in the New Forest, serving traditional flavours in a contemporary way and authentic setting. Situated in the grounds of Careys Manor Hotel and Spa, it has a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere offering high quality authentic French cuisine. Loved by locals and visitors for its ability to take you away from reality, it’s easy to sit with a glass of wine and imagine yourself relaxing on the streets of Paris.

The interiors are chic, with wicker chairs, white tables, and mirrors along with plenty of natural light flooding through the room from large windows. To one side, there is a conservatory section of the restaurant with a glass roof and tiled floorings, creating an airy space that makes for great light space for the summer months, and cosy area for the winter.

Sample some of the best French cuisine in Hampshire, with a delicious menu and a vibrant informal atmosphere. The menu brings plenty of regional classics to the table, catering for anything from nibbles through to dessert. Expect small plates like goujeres, pissaladiere and garlic baguettes to get the ball rolling, then options such as a French onion soup or snails cooked in garlic butter for starters. The main courses are a selection of all of the French classics, which have been elevated to the next level, and executed with finesse. Expect boeuf bourguignon, mushroom pithiviers and grilled pork fillet in a cider sauce for some hearty options, then for something lighter there are salads like roast pumpkin and squash with a pumpkin seed dressing.

To drink, guests can choose from a selection of fine wines available that hail from France, so whether you're after a red to pair with your Bourguignon or some fizz to celebrate a special occasion, they’ve got you covered.

Dining experience with friends after being let loose!

Le Blaireau has been our favourite restaurant in Brockenhurst for as long as we can remember.   We are well known to Richard the manager and James and are always given a warm welcome.

There was a wide selection of delicious meals on the new menu and our choices for lunch were much enjoyed by us and our two friends.  The beer and wine were also excellent.   We are returning in a couple of weeks time with another set of friends who we have also not seen for many months due to Covid and lock down.
