Dining at Careys Manor Hotel & SenSpa

There’s nothing quite like enjoying great food with friends and loved ones and where better to do that then at one of our three mouth-watering New Forest restaurants.


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 and the changing nature of the seasons.

Head Chef Alistair Craig’s innovative menu begins with finding the best regional ingredients and fresh produce, some of which comes from our own kitchen garden. He likes to use local ingredients in a ‘wordly’ way reinterpreting classic dishes from around the globe with the flavours of the forest.

As the UK has become a premier wine producing region, Cambium also boasts one of the biggest collections of English wines in the country, featuring vineyards such as Marlings, Exton Park, Nyetimber and Goring.

Zen Garden

The imaginative menus created by our Thai Chefs at the Zen Garden restaurant offer a fresh infusion of exotic flavours that create exquisite Thai cuisine.

The traditional Thai decor creates a tranquil and relaxed dining atmosphere for you to unwind in after a day exploring the forest or relaxing at the spa .

Our ethical food policy means that the Zen Garden Restaurant sources only the finest ingredients and uses local and organic products wherever possible.
