Portsmouth
The Blind Tiger, Spring Street, Landport, Portsmouth, and, below, the Detective's fry-up.

FOOD REVIEW: Portsmouth speakeasy that would make Fat Tony smile

Tucked away around the back of the Cascades shopping centre lies a hidden gem of a restaurant that deserves much more attention than it gets.
Food and Drink
7 Bone Burger Co, Guildhall Walk, Portsmouth

RESTAURANT REVIEW: This is no gourmet burger joint but it's good value for money

There are few guarantees in life, especially when it comes to business. But opening a gourmet burger restaurant? That might be about as close as you are going to get.

The Square Cow, Wickham

FOOD REVIEW: How now, Square Cow? Actually, it's going very well!

It’s a glorious day, one of the first of what will hopefully be a glorious summer. The sun is shining, shorts are being worn and the beer garden benches have been dusted off.
Food and Drink
Three Joes, West Street, Fareham Shopping Centre

FOOD REVIEW: New restaurant basks in five-star glory

It’s the day after the snow and everything is melting. You’d have thought the Beast from the East had trapped people in their homes for weeks judging by the number of people now queuing to get into Tesco’s car park at Fareham. There must be something about not being able to get to a supermarket for 24 hours that makes people yearn for fluorescent strip lighting even more.
Whats on
Shenanigans Irish Bar and Caf, Osborne Road, Southsea

FOOD REVIEW: A craic(ing) Irish breakfast

In this day and age it can be hard to find somewhere to eat that offers an authentic, traditional atmosphere. Bland, cookie-cutter chains have spread like the plague, and present a serious challenge for those looking to go somewhere with a bit of character.

It’s a glorious day, one of the first of what will hopefully be a glorious summer. The sun is shining, shorts are being worn and the beer garden benches have been dusted off.

The Nag's Head, St Pancras, Chichester.

FOOD REVIEW: Shock win for veggie option in burger battle
