Square Meal Review of JSW ?

Housed in a 17th-century coaching inn, this charming restaurant-with-rooms has all the prerequisites of its age: old beams, a well, a cellar (now stocked with 700 wines) & three tunnels to other buildings in the ancient town – including one leading to a defunct nunnery. The cream-coloured dining room is as spare as the less-is-more style of cooking of Michelin-starred chef, Jake Watkins. He believes in English seasonality, with fish coming from nearby Solent, beef & lamb from Cumbria. Technically brilliant dishes may include scallops with cauliflower purée, partridge terrine with pickled quince or wild sea bass with a fennel risotto. Otherwise, come here for the grouse with creamed cabbage, & be sure to sample outstanding desserts such as a chocolate & olive oil delice with malt ice-cream, which show off Jake’s culinary prowess to the full. Service is faultless, & the wine list is a remarkable tome.

    samphire and salsify :: JSW

    JSW (short for Jake Saul Watkins) is a Michelin starred restaurant in the Hampshire town of Petersfield. Set in a 17th century former coaching inn complete with wooden beams, the dining room has lots of character – you feel like you’re eating somewhere that has a history. We arrived for a weekday lunch at 1pm and were the only diners there – needless to say the atmosphere was a little flat and very quiet. By 2pm it got busier which took away that awkward silence...
