Many would regard Hotel TerraVina as a chic restaurant with luxury rooms in the New Forest. In fact, there can be few restaurants in Southampton, Winchester or the New Forest that can compare with this California-style gem (see for yourself in our virtual tour). Even The Times featured the TerraVina restaurant in its Eat Out in James Bond Style article and the restaurant won the Rémy Martin Restaurant Award 2009 for the South East of England. It was their love of California wine country restaurants that inspired Nina to design and create a place that epitomizes dining out in the sunshine state. The ‘open kitchen’ is a superb feature. Have you ever tried a Sunday roast cooked in a wood burning oven? It’s almost as though the food is cooked at your table; no long walk from kitchen to table here.

One side of the restaurant opens out onto a wonderful veranda for al fresco breakfast, lunch or early dinners when the weather is warm. If it’s not, the wood burning stove creates a warm and cosy environment.

We use fresh, free-range and organic produce from local Dorset and Hampshire suppliers, wherever possible, cooked with distinct flavours.

As you might expect, wine is always a key element of dining at Hotel TerraVina. Our sommeliers will advise on the most appropriate wines and, once you’ve decided, will be eager for your comments. Hotel TerraVina is also particularly noted for wine events in the New Forest and cocktails in the New Forest.
