Truffles French Restaurant

Fareham East, Fareham, 20-30£
12/11/2018: The restaurant was cosy, but enough space between tables for private conversation. They had art for sale on the walls which made an interesting and colourful ambiance. Service was friendly and effiicient and when the starter arrived the hostess was able to describe the dish in detail. Presentation was very good, and the flavours exceptional, thought had been given to every dish. I had the vension which was cooked to perfection and very tender, my sister had lamb which she thoroughly enjoyed too.
09/11/2018: The food was delicious, tasted fresh and perfectly cooked. Lovely presentation and service. If this place was in London, it would have been heaving, extremely good value for the quality of the food we ate. Fareham, you are lucky to have this on your doorstep, make the most of it.


Restaurant 27

St Jude, Portsmouth, 60-100£
11/11/2018: Myself and my son ate at this restaurant on Friday night and it was an αmazing experience. The food was absolutely to die for. Every course surpassed our expectations. The staff were very knowledgeable about each course and were so friendly and professional. It was α truly fantastic dining experience and we can't wait to eat here again.
11/11/2018: We visited restaurant 27 to celebrate my Wife’s Birthday. We visited for Sunday lunch. The service was exceptional, the food of very high standards and generally a very relaxed and friendly environment. We would highly recommend this as a special event or romantic venue.

Cheese & Cheers

St Jude, Portsmouth, >100£
10/11/2018: One of our favourite places to eat when the grandparents are on duty. We love cheese and the wine helps. Great selection of cheeses that make your heart melt (pun intended) Fabulous in every which way.
04/11/2018: We went for a birthday date night without the children and had a lovely time. We had a selection of hard cheeses, blue cheeses, quiche and charcuterie which was all BEAUTIFULLY presented with little bits of fruit, salad and pickles. It also came with a basket if bread. We had desert and a couple of drinks each and thoroughly enjoyed all the food and drink. The owner described all the cheeses and the service was attentive but without being imposing. Absolute gem of a place and we will definitely return!


Le Manoir Aux Quat' Saisons

Great Milton, South Oxfordshire, >100£
12/11/2018: Big occasion and booked a big name venue to match and it started and ended so well but the moment when we expected fireworks it was just a damp squib.
12/11/2018: We ate here five years ago and desperately wanted to return as it is an iconic venue and we both love the cooking of Raymond Blanc but sadly this was a little disappointing on a Sunday night. Most of the courses were very good but not amazing which was our previous memory but the main meat course on the taster menu was Jimmy Butler's piglet which was bland and the meat was not tender and had too much fat and sinew. ( I love fat on meat but this was not pleasant).


Les Mirabelles Restaurant

Bramshaw, Copythorne North and Minstead, New Forest
12/11/2018: Visited with friends, service friendly as always, great food wonderfully cooked, exquisite starters and terrific main courses, not cheap, but quality never is.
30/10/2018: Visited for the first time for my daughters birthday. Having read the TA reviews before we went, I had some concerns regarding the poor reviews although well outswayed by the good/excellent reviews.


Jeremy's at Borde Hill

Cuckfield, Mid Sussex, >100£
28/10/2018: We had a lovely lunch on a glorious Autumn day, so lucky to be able to sit outside. The service, food and wine outstanding. Fabulous!
28/10/2018: I had been here before many times & always been impressed.This time we were a party of 12 to celebrate my husbands 70th. birthday. Jeremy, himself, was absolutely super with the arrangements before & was there on the evening helping to serve us & see that everything went according to plan. The other two waiters were great & looked after us beautifully & with great humour. They couldn't do enough to make us feel comfortable. The food , as always , was excellent.


Clos du Marquis

Wonston and Micheldever, Winchester
21/10/2018: We have been three times to the Clos du Marquis and it never disappoints. It’s that place you go for a truly special evening. Unhurried, unfussy but quintessentially English.
08/10/2018: With a lot of excellent reviews we were very much looking forward to our visit and had high expectations. On our arrival we found live music with a 3 piece ensemble playing 1940's style music which we thought was rather intrusive but maybe other diners liked it but it was not a great start to our evening. The main problem was the food which was simply not up to our expectations, the french onion soup was adequate but not great and my partners scallops in a lemongrass and ginger sauce was spoilt by the sauce being too salty although the 4 scallops were nicely cooked but at £13.50 we expected better. The poorest dish was the 'pork fillet medallions with cider and caramelised apple' - in reality 2 pieces of mediocre pork partly filled with spinach and served with a sauce/gravy which apparently included the cider and caramelised apple but not at all what we had envisaged. The main dishes were accompanied by a selection of vegetables - cauliflower that had some green pesto and was roasted but it neither looked nor tasted great, creamed spinach as if there wasn't enough stuffed in the pork and hasselback style potatoes that were mediocre. The service was adequate the bread rolls were good and the wine was excellent but overall the evening was let down by the food which was so disappointing our only conclusion being that it must have been the chefs night off with a poorly qualified stand-in.


Michael Wignall at The Latymer

3 offers
Bagshot, Surrey Heath, 60-100£
12/11/2018: A celebration lunch at the Latymer was everything we had hoped for. A nice touch to be given a congratulations card signed by the Latymer team. Each course was excellent accompanied by the wine flight. Excellent service by knowledgeable staff. A great experience, we plan to return.
12/11/2018: We went to this restaurant last night for my birthday which I had really been looking forward to.


Pierre Victoire

Carfax, Oxford
28/10/2018: Parting dinner with my daughter studying at Oxford. Chose a French meal at a small family run restaurant replete with Parisian accents, Pierre Victoire, on Little Clarendon. We both had the 3 course fixed prix. I had the twice baked goat cheese soufflé with apple and pear compote. The soufflé was sublime with subtle, but lingering goat cheese flavour from the fluffy, soft, crumbly soufflé. The compote was a bit firm but had great fruit flavour that must have a had a splash or two of white wine in its preparation. She had the les mare frits, which had light, crispy barely battered calamari rings and white bait fish (I love flour dusted deep fried white bait fish or smelt). She then had her favourite moules frites, which she declared quite yummy, even if the fries were more British in flavour and texture than the better crispy matchstick French fries. I had the bouillabaisse that had squid rings, shrimp, mussels, and sea bream in a saffron-infused, chopped parsley-enlivened, slightly spicy tomato-based seafood broth. Creamy potato tournees added robustedness to this dish. The best ingredients were the buttery sea bream and the seafood broth. We both chose classic French desserts. I had the tarte tartin, which had good apple texture and flavour, but could have used a more tart apple against the overwhelming sweetness of the caramel sauce. The creme brûlée was well done with a good thick brûlée and a house made shortbread cookie. The house Grenache wine was quite nice, fruit but understated. Make reservations, it's a deservedly popular spot. It made for a nice final evening meal to send off my little girl!
27/10/2018: Very good fixed price menu and very good food. Service was excellent and unfussy. Thank goodness, no visits to the table to enquire whether everything was all right. A very competent restaurant and extremely good value. Will definitely go again!


Frederic Cafe Bistro

High Street, Maidstone, <20£
01/11/2018: We, and members of the family, have used Fredrics many times, especially for breakfast when we have enjoyed good, plentyful food. It was no surprise when my daughter & her Fiancee decided to have lunch there following their wedding ceremony. It proved to be the perfect choice of venue. We were very well looked after. Staff were organised and efficient with Ulric, the Patron, overseeing to ensure everything ran smoothly. The food was served to all 20 guests at the same time and it was superb. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed it. The setting, complete with fairy lights, was perfect and there was a lovely atmosphere. It really contributed to making the Wedding Day very special indeed. Thank you so much to all the staff involved.
01/11/2018: First time to Frederic's certainly will not be our last. Recommended by our daughter what a lovely bistro. Staff friendly and attentive food exceptional we had Croque Monsieur with the fried egg salad and fries, plus my husband had French ploughman's consisting of 2 different pates,2 Cheeses and a thick slice of ham fresh crusty baguette salad and fries. He said it was fabulous. In my opinion because of the quality of the food and ambiance of the Bistro I personally thought it was good value. Defiantly would recommend if your in the area to give it a go you will not be disappointed .


Cote Brasserie - Guildford

Holy Trinity, Guildford
12/11/2018: Went here for the first time for pre theatre meal, on a very wet Saturday evening.
11/11/2018: Went to The Cote to meet up with old friends we haven't seen in years. The staff were very patient with us being too busy chatting to order. The food was very tasty and the puddings were exquisite. Whilst the restaurant on a Sunday lunch was very busy, the tables were laid out in a spacious way so you didn't feel you were on top of each other or being overheard. Our leisurely lunch took us 4 hours but we never felt under pressure to rush or vacate our table. Definitely recommend.



Herstmonceux, Wealden
08/11/2018: This is fine dining at its best. The whole experience was faultless. Beautiful food, beautifully presented. Just superb.
07/11/2018: An absolute gem of a restaurant. Classic French cuisine beautifully served and presented. Highest quality ingredients lovingly preparedness presented for a true gastronomic feast.



Devonshire, Eastbourne
30/10/2018: Welcoming...that's A Start Should be Confit de my Memere used to make....en Bourgogne. En effet on mange bien...very Bien ! There is one fault and that is l'Exquise se trouve in Eastbourne and I don't.
22/10/2018: Ha pasado un tiempo desde que hemos estado en Exquis, pero fue tan bueno como siempre. . . Bueno, mi única queja fue la selección de bocadillos en lugar de un entrante, bueno, pero preferiría pagar tres cursos. Pero la calidad de la comida era excelente, el vino era bueno (prueba la casa roja - muy apetecible), el servicio amable y eficiente y la relación calidad-precio muy buena, como siempre. Si no has estado aquí, te lo recomiendo. Oh, especialmente el pato

Shinfield South, Wokingham, >100£
04/11/2018: It is a few months since my wife and I were here for my daughter's wedding. The food was spectacular then and it was equally spectacular when four of us went for Saturday lunch. This restaurant has a great atmosphere, the food is just brilliant and is well deserving of it's Michelin Star. It is probably worth two stars! There is a choice of several fixed price menus. I find myself eating food that I might not normally have chosen. In some ways that makes the experience even more pleasurable. You know it is a great restaurant when you discover that every mouthful is beyond delicious.
31/10/2018: Went with the family mid-week on a quiet night with an end budget of 650 for 4 people, so you would hope for top notch. We had the taster menu which was very good bar a couple of minor gustatory criticisms. Service was offered by around 6 different members of staff, and while 2 were very engaging and good at their job, the service overall was clinical bordering on cold. Communication about what to expect for each course was unclear. There was no semblance of teamwork between the waiters. Any small talk towards them seemed to go nowhere.
