Whenever I have been in Frampton's, be it morning, afternoon or evening there has always been a buzz about the place. The staff are well trained, there's a great range of drinks available and the last food I had there was extremely tasty, even though the portions were a little small. Its totally out of character with Ringwood, but that's probabaly what makes it so good.

We are not familiar with the area and met up with relatives here because it was near the Registry Office where we were attending a wedding. We all had the fish and chips and it was fine - not outstanding but good. Staff were average and did the job, but again nothing outstanding. Drinks were also OK. That's about all I have to say.

Nice food but very understaffed, only 2 staff on for a very busy Saturday morning. Why ???? Both girls were stressed, unhelpful & patronising...we waited 20 minutes just to be given a menu, and were even asked if we would like one ??? All our drinks, inc our fruit juices, arrived after we had finished our breakfast, we kept asking their whereabouts, but each enquiry was met with ‘yes they’re coming’... No apology was given. Maybe the guy in charge of dispensing them, could try very hard to spend less time entertaining the mates who kept popping in to see him, than providing the entire restaurant with their morning cuppa. No shock we will not be returning.

Scatty waitress messed up and forgot things and over charged us. Menu shrunk and more expensive. Manager didn’t care about our feedback. Shame been going for years and definitely lost its edge at present.

Great to come back to this place and this time we brought our friends from London who loved it! We knew they would. It was a busy Saturday evening with a few tables outside on the street that gave it a really continental feel. Service inside was excellent. Had to wait a while occasionally to get a drink but only because the place was very busy. When they arrived, our cocktails were as good as we’ve experienced anywhere and the staff kindly gave us table service when they weren’t rushed off their feet! We were very tempted by the menu which looked delicious but we’d already booked dinner in Lymington for this trip. Will definitely be back here for dinner. Thanks Framptons!
