We enjoyed a lovely meal at ashbys gastropub last weekend. The food was fabulous, we both had steak which was cooked to our individual liking and it was accompanied by home cooked chips. The desserts were ok also. The staff were very nice and friendly, and you felt looked after. The restaurant was set out well and a very nice... More

Went on a groupon steak deal. Half the menu advertised not available so a bit of a downer to start with. Went with the wings and steak. The steak was very poor quality and the chips oliy and soggy. Managed to eat 3 of them. The egg was drowning in oil as well. To cap it of we had a... More

My husband and I visited Ashby's on 29 October. We had a Groupon Voucher which entitled us to any starter up to the value of £4.50 and any main up to £21.95. We had to book 24 hours ahead but had booked at least 4 days ahead. On arriving we were given a menu and asked what we would like... More

The food was enjoyable, the waitress was very friendly, but the place was empty. I think that this place would benefit from some tweaking. It lacks professionalism. Ie no wine list, no dessert menu. Young staff that need some guidance. The groupon deals can showcase a venue. I would purchase another groupon, but would not return paying full price. Shame... More

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
