From start to finish our 7 course taster menu with wine pairing was an absolute taste sensation! Relaxed and comfortable atmosphere with attentive young staff. Enjoyed the whole experience immensely and will definitely return.

We were given a Groupon taster menu voucher for a mothers day present and we were not disappointed. I had the fish free version and the tasters were superb, from the truffle risotto to the warm goats cheese tart - it makes the taste buds rampant just thinking about them. Jake is undoubtedly a superior chef whose talents I feel... More

Petersfield is a relaxed little town in NE Hampshire, and this gem of a restaurant fits in really well. Its an old building, going back to the mid 1600s, but is very clean with a modern yet comfortable interior. Car parking easy. Our party visited for Sunday lunch, and we all had the tasting menu with an additional dish of... More

This was our second visit to JSW, using Travelzoo offers. The 7-course tasting menu was excellent as usual. We had glasses of house wine with the meal - 2 different reds & 2 different whites, which we shared - which gave us our own 'wine flight' and still left me able to drive home afterwards. The only problem is that... More

Started badly. 10 of us decided to have lunch here (their special offer 7 course tasting menu) Having booked noticed that the small print included "TABLES OF 8" We rang to ask for a table of 10 and, unless we were all prepared to pay a surcharge of £7 a head this could not be done. Decided that this was... More

The food was good, even if the menu was a bit limited. One of our group does not eat fish so the tasting menus (for the whole table) were not an option. The service was enthusiastic but not first class. One waitress referred to us as Mister and Lady - that might work well in Oliver! but not in a... More

I ate at JSW for the second time last. Absolutely superb. The food was outstanding and it is immediately obviouswhy the Chef has a Michelin star. Excellent service, a wine list to die for and the most unctuous, accurate, delicious food. I am not given to superlatives; but JSW just has to be tried. The Chef is humility itself and... More
