Sensational JSW

A six-course tasting menu with accompanying wine flight was absolutely lovely and the house staff worked with effortless ease to bring it to us; charming, knowledgeable and efficient. That all restaurants can't be like this is a pity as this was as relaxed a meal we've had in a long time. The food... read more

When I got offered a two for one on the 5 course testing menu here via Groupon as we live about 3 miles away it seemed we had to go. As the only Michelin starred restaurant near us we were expecting great things. We went on a Thursday lunchtime when it was fairly quiet. The food was very good once... More

I've eaten in some nice restaurants over the years, but the meal here ranks with the best of all of them. We did the seven course tasting menu, which started with a great take on pea and ham soup. That set the tone for the rest and the scallops, salmon with pickled cucumber, duck, lamb, and rhubarb & ginger cheesecake... More

We recently visited JSW to have the 8 course taster menu with wine. We also stayed the night in the B and B but will review that separately. The restaurant is very simply and stylishly furnished and just what you'd expect for fine dining. We'd confirmed our booking the day before and yet the waitress did not acknowledge we were... More

I wanted to be amazed, but left disappointed. Having eaten in numerous Michelin star restaurants, including another hampshire based establishment, I was expecting a lot but JSW but it failed to deliver. A party of 6 had the 3 course a la carte menu and the reviews were overall mixed; 2 party members had the scallops to start and both... More

Highly sophisticated dining yet completely unpretentious and extremely friendly service. Brilliantly executed local, fresh and seasonal menus with attention to technique and detail. Absolutely the dining experience all restaurants should be aiming for. Thank you.

4 of us booked for a birthday meal and had the 5 course tasting menu along with the flight of wines. Every dish was superbly cooked and presented, as well as tasting divine (helped by the well-matched wines). The waiting staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We've debated for ages on what the best dish was and have still failed... More

This was my first Michelin star dining experience. We got a groupon deal effectively making the 7 course taster menu half price. Atmosphere good, cosy restaurant, full on a Sunday lunchtime, service was great. Food was wonderful, I especially enjoyed the ham and pea soup, I don't know how they can make something so normal taste so amazing. We wouldn't... More

My wife & I booked for a birthday meal. We had the 7 course taster meal with wine. Individual courses were "ok" but frankly expected more than "ok" at this price and for a Michelin star chef. Portion sizes were small enough for my wife to jokingly ask "fancy a kebab?" as we left. Won't be going back and would... More

Before our visit I was a little worried by some of the reviews that were written especially about the service. We had the 9 course tasting menu with the wine flight. The staff were very young but they more than made up for their inexperience with their really happy, friendly, courteous manner. Nothing was too much trouble and they ensured... More
