looking for somewhere lovely for Saturday, not fine dining but not a chain....
country pub or marina brasserie or something a bit quirky all good....

Ennios in Southampton if it’s still there. Was my favourite restaurant when I lived there.

Rosie’s Vinyard in Southsea is just lovely.

A sort of chain, but the nice sort

There are some lovely places in Winchester- or is that too far?

How about some of the pubs near the sea

So there are some great pubs in spice island in Portsmouth

Or the osbone view in a village between Southampton and Portsmouth right on the beach so if its nice the children can let off steam

Hoe old are the children

There is a pub called the jolly farmer which apparently has a good play area

Rufustherenegadereindeer1 Thu 19-Oct-17 21:25:16

Winchester does have some great looking little pubs

Rufustherenegadereindeer1 Thu 19-Oct-17 21:25:55

Oooh dh loves a pie restaurant in Southampton called the stables or it might just be stables

PosiePootlePerkins Thu 19-Oct-17 21:28:08

There's a nice pizza place called Mozzarella Joes on Southsea seafront. Nothing fancy but yummy food and a good view if its not raining

Anything at Watermark West Quay : chains but decent.

My favourite is ALWAYS The Oxford Brasserie
or two doors down, Simons at Oxford street
or the White Star (also in Oxford street)
or the Dancing Man Brewery opposite the Isle of Wight ferry

further afield :
Romsey - la Parisienne is long standing and reliable

Tuna Wow ..Rosies Vineyard is still open? I used to be a regular there when it first opened .. I'm a Pompey lass born and bred, but last lived in Portsmouth about 1985 I think.. [Old Gimmer emoticon]

Rufustherenegadereindeer1 Thu 19-Oct-17 21:28:38

Would second the white star

Ta1kinPeece Thu 19-Oct-17 21:33:46

Ocean Village has some nice places - I've not been for a while

and of course there are a whole bunch of eateries around Guildhall square

Agree with pp about Rosie's Vineyard if it's still there.

MrsZB Thu 19-Oct-17 21:42:21

River cottage canteen in Winchester is really lovely food. They have children's menu etc and are really friendly plus it's right next to the play park.

Ta1kinPeece Thu 19-Oct-17 21:45:07

Not been to this in a while
but friends say its still good
- food
- views
- seaside

Rufustherenegadereindeer1 Thu 19-Oct-17 21:45:54
