Favourite Restaurant-Lymington

egansHaving spent a wonderful evening with friends at Egans restaurant over Easter I just had to bring it to everybody's attention. Lymington is a very well known south coast tourist venue overlooking one of the finest sailing areas in the world. Consequently, it attracts a huge number of visitors each year some of which have sailed into the harbour for the day or perhaps longer. On a Saturday the excellent street market is buzzing and it makes a trip that much more worth while. A few years ago I was introduced to a restaurant which has become my favourite for its very good value fine dining. Good value and fine dining are two phrases that do not always fit together but in the case of Egan's it certainly does. 
The restaurant is pleasantly decorated without being fussy or formal. The atmosphere is very relaxed, the staff are suitably attentive without being intrusive. 
You go to restaurants for the food of course and at Egan's it really is first class. On my last visit I started with smoked haddock crostini with garden leaves and quails eggs. For the main course I had a roast fillet of beef ( cooked to perfection) with baked field mushroom and stroganoff sauce. We all decided to give the desserts a miss which was all to do with over-indulgence and certainly not the quality of what was on offer. The trio of chocolate desserts was a big temptation. The lunch menu is priced at £14.95 for two courses and £ 17.95 for three. Bearing in mind the quality of the food the price made the experience well worth while. Egans also has a good selection of well priced wines and do not package up the whole deal with the uncomfortable mystique that some places do.
If you are anywhere near Lymington then Egans is a must. I can assure you will be impressed and you will be thankful you took the reccomendation.
