Review on Egan's

Turn off Lymington's bustling high street and look for the dark blue front door that marks out John and Debbie Egan's informal, bistro-style restaurant. Big bold colours give a sunny Mediterranean feel to the dining room and the atmosphere is thoroughly congenial.

John Egan puts his faith in sound local ingredients and fish is really the thing to go for. The long printed menu is bolstered by a blackboard of daily specials where most of the piscine delights are to be found: expect things like seared scallops with bacon, rocket and Parmesan, skate with shrimps and capers, halibut with a crab samosa, and Thai-spiced sauce, and much more besides.

If meat is your preference, the kitchen can oblige with the likes of noisettes of lamb with pesto-roasted vegetables and minted couscous or beef fillet with rösti and a medley of mushrooms. Close the show with something like chocolate tart with Cointreau ice cream or even strawberries and cream. The wine list is lengthy, predominantly French and affordable.
