Cambium | New Forest Restaurant
Relaxed refinement is the name of the game at Cambium. Unwind in chic yet comfy surroundings & experience delicious cuisine inspired by the enchanted New Forest.
Inspired by nature, Cambium at Careys Manor Hotel is a creative and enchanting dining experience. Our name is reflective of our love affair with the New Forest and the desire to showcase the rich natural resources abundant in our local area.
Head Chef Alistair Craig's traditional dishes are interpreted with simplicities and flavours, capturing the essence of the local area and embracing the nature of the seasons.
“I like to use local ingredients in a worldly way reinterpreting a dish to take advantage of the local area’s rich natural resources”.

The interior of Cambium was created by designers Sue and Bonnie Stowell. Their inspiration came from the New Forest itself with nature leading the way on the design scheme. Hand painted English trees adorn the walls, the chairs are upholstered in moss like fabric and bespoke oak leaf golden screens separate the diners, introducing an intimate dining experience.
