This magnificent venue stands proudly amongst the romantic surrounds of the New Forest. Originally a grand country house, The White Buck is now an elegant restaurant and hotel that’s popular with families and holidaymakers. Hotel guests and non-residents alike will find this a peaceful haven to retreat to, whether enjoying a delicious breakfast, lunch or supper. Diners at this captivating eatery encounter the likes of asparagus, pea and lemon gnocchi, and rump of lamb in roasted red pepper sauce with chorizo and sweet potato rosti. If you go on to peruse the pudding menu, you’ll find delights like peach and almond tart with creamy vanilla ice cream, alongside indulgent peanut butter parfait with blackcurrant jelly and smooth chocolate ganache. I can think of no better spot to escape to after a day spent exploring the New Forest.
