Anniversary meal

We chose jsw for a change as we have dined at most of the fine dinning restaurant in Portsmouth. The meal it self was very good but I feel very over priced compared to other restaurants of the same standard. The service was not as professional as should be considering the standard of the restaurant.

We booked the 8 course tasting menu with wines and separately booked B & B at JSW's as they have 4 excellent rooms, which was a great facility and they were very good with a fabulous continental breakfast. Back to the meal - Oh My! This is one of the best "English" Michelin star meals we have had. Having recently... More

First, the food isn't bad. But it is not as good as two other Michelin starred restaurants we have eaten in in recent months. In those terms it is just average. My wife wanted to eat at JSW on our way to the other end of Hampshire. So we booked a room and dinner. (Nice idea.) It was mid week... More

We went there for a Sunday lunch and chose a la carte menu.could have had a 5 or 7 taster menus also. Food was simply devine and service very attentive. Excellent value for a 3-courses lunch,thought it would be pricer.Wine list was the most extensive we have seen.will definatly be back to try the taster menu.

A truly lovely evening spent in this small restaurant in Petersfield. The waiters were on hand for everything you could need and more, explaining all the courses and the fine wines to accompany the different courses. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

We have been to JSW a number of times now and have never been disappointed. My wife and I visited on Wednesday lunch and had another great meal. We ordered from the a la carte and I had the scallops, lamb and ganache. The lamb was the stand out dish, cooked beautifully pink and the flavour from the tomatoes was... More

I was bought this night at the hotel with a 6 course taster menu in the restaurant as a gift for my birthday from my partner and cannot tell you how superb the food was. Plate after plate of delicious little morsels and such polite and friendly staff. Great wine menu too. The room was quaint and comfortable and I... More

We used the groupon offer. When the bill arrived there was an extra £32 added, then 10% commision on that. I questioned this to be told it was discretionary, I asked for it to be removed. Nice trick !

This was an evening to celebrate a successful project and my first experience of a Michelin star restaurant. I had been sceptical about whether I would enjoy the evening or feel intimidated but I could not have been proved more wrong. Lovely relaxed atmosphere (excellent company helped), staff were all young and a bit wet round the ears but I... More

We recently had an overnight stay at JSW, which included a 6 course tasting menu. The room was satisfactory, a coffee machine was there but little touches such as complementary biscuits were missing and it was nothing to write home about. it was the overall experience which was disappointing though. The food was good, as to be expected from a... More
