The wonders of new management, who in their wisdom open for business but don't have the staff to run it. It was not the greatest of starts, having ordered at the bar, we were then told by another member of staff that she and her colleague had been drafted in from somewhere else for a wedding at 4pm and that...

Saturday night in Southsea is a very busy norm. Arrived at Ashbys having booked but needn't have bothered. Bought a Groupon deal and the first thing to say is that when the food did arrive we could not fault it but then it was a burger offer. We arrived to be greeted by a bar man who was busy (not...

We attended a few weeks ago with the Groupon for the burger meal and really enjoyed it. As a result we decided to buy the 2 course meal for 2 Groupon - we had previously looked at the menu and thought it looked nice - we wanted to try more... However (unknown to us) the restaurant has since changed hands... More

Having been to Ashby's before we were looking forward to going, we had been given a voucher for my hubby's birthday for a 2 course Steak meal. On arrival the waitress didn't really know what she was doing, told us to sit wherever we wanted, then couldn't find a wine list, eventually we ordered the wine, I presented her with... More

We have been there several times when Andy first took over and he was cooking, it was a good venue and food was quite good. However we went recently and his new executive chef was cooking. I am very sad to say the food was diabolical!! Don't understand???

I'm afraid this establishment is on its last legs. It ought to be an ideal place for travelling business people but the standards of hygiene were appalling. First the floor hadn't seen a brush never mind a mop for ages, and the tables had been wiped off with a dirty cloth leaving streaks and a sticky residue. The cutlery was... More

A 2 star rating and very poor cleaning standards says it all. Food might be ok but we didn't want to risk eating anything there.

Seems to have closed down. Visited on a Wednesday night to find a for sale sign outside and no lights on. Seems a shame!
