“Little known hidden gem of a restruant!”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

Have eaten at this restraunt on several occasions. In the summer we enjoyed lunch out on the balcony, over looking the golf course, with family visiting from Australia. Our last visit just before Christmas was for a celebratory meal with family following the birth of our new Grandaughter. Ordered from the Sunday lunch menu, my favourite is the Chef's twice baked Whinchester cheese soufflé, it just melts in your mouth! I had a main course of roast turkey, which was very lean and moist, with roast potatoes and seasonal vegetables. For pudding the brûlée, which the chef regularly varies the flavours of and they never disappoint as a final course to a excellent meal. The restraunt refurbishment was not quiet finished, so restraunt was not very busy at our last visit, but when word gets out about the standard of meal and service at Skylark, Sunday's will be busy. I look forward to enjoying a meal there again soon.

“Amazing food”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed amazingly tasty and well presented food at Skylark for my mums birthday. Ordered from the Sunday lunch menu and was not disappointed. Would recommend booking as since the recent refurbishment I think Sundays are going to be busy!!

“Excellent Birthday Dinner thanks to Trip Advisor”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

We were staying overnight in Portsmouth with our caravan before catching the ferry to Bilbao. Where to have dinner was a critical choice at it was my wife’s birthday (a particularly significant one). As it happened, Trip Advisor showed the nearest restaurant as SKYLARK and it had very good reviews.
It did not get off to a very good start as we drove around for ages trying to find it! (our SatNav would not take the postcode). The new owners were still refurbishing the building. The old air conditioning/heating units had been taken out in preparation for the new double glazed windows and the only heating was a fan heater.
Despite all this, the food was EXCELLENT and our waiter explained each dish and looked after us well. When we return on the ferry from Spain, we will be staying at the same campsite and we look forward to dining again at SKYLARK.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

The restaurant and club has recently been taken over and it's good to see people that know what they are doing. The previous owners were hopeless.
It is good for whiteley to have a decent restaurant . The owners are in the process of a complete refurbishment but it was still great food and great service, we will be back.
