We went for a special night out as a couple. The food was absolutely superb. Very creative, with fantastic flavours and amazing presentation. The service was exemplary too. It isn't cheap but you get what you pay for.

We love taking a leisurely Friday lunch, especially when it's raining and Summer is temporarily suspended. JSW is a smart restaurant, with a standard 3 course a-la-carte or, at just £5 more, a 6 course tasting menu. We had scallops (perfectly cooked), salmon (Sous-vide,magnificent), duck (original and tasty), lamb (a la spag-bol - not quite so successful), a tea sorbet... More

This was our second visit and again we were not disappointed. We went for the 8 course taster menu and all courses were excellent. The staff and friendly and informative. When ordering they ask if there is anything you are allergic to or dislike. The G&T ice was fantastic as were the salted caramel truffles. Will definitely return again.

Second visit here. Food again, very good, well seasoned and interesting. Highlights included the duck, the lamb Bol, and the milk chocolate desert. I'm a dark chocolate freak, so out of protest I ordered the cheeseboard - outstanding selection - so good, I had to order another when the first was stolen by my son. The second was stolen by...

Been here a few times. Great with my girlfriend, food service wine all excellent. Who'd have thought little old Petersfield would have such gastronomic pretensions. Simply great place for fine wine and food, save up its worth it.

Fully up to expectations for an Anniversary lunch and deserves its Michelin *. A conservative style of cooking which doesn't set the taste buds alight, but it suits us and, after all, this is Petersfield. We stuck to the 3-course menu; scallops/quail, duck, cheese cake/ cheeseboard. The balance of flavours and rhythm of the service were both exemplary. The front... More

12 of us enjoyed a family birthday lunch. We all chose the 6 course tasting menu and were not disappointed. Each course was well presented, and the hot dishes were cooked to perfection! Service was also very good, with those who were looking after us demonstrated an appropriate level of attentiveness. This is not a cheap restaurant, however, we thought... More

My husband and I returned to JSW 6 years after our first visit (actually one of our first dates!) and decided to treat ourselves to an overnight stay this time as well as the 8 course tasting menu as they were offering a great deal (£195 for room and breakfast, 8 course tasting menu plus wine flight!). We had a... More

Dinner a quatre with old friends. Restaurant full on a Wednesday evening in August. All very socially and ethnically homogenous, all white, heterosexual, middle aged, middle class and with middle age spread. Pork belly for two and scallops for the other two as starters. Both excellent. "Spag. boll", seabass x2 and duck for mains. The spag. boll bore no resemblance... More
