The Southsea Food Tour – 2018’s Top 10

A year ago, I was sitting at my computer trawling through reviews and articles, tourist guides and websites that were all about Pompey. Of course, they mentioned the Historic Dockyard, the football club, seafront and Spinnaker Tower but they rarely talked about food. The ones that did, seemed more like press releases than actual reviews … Read moreThe Southsea Food Tour – 2018’s Top 10

The Southsea Food Tour – The Merchant House / Need Street Food

2018 may not have set off to a good start but, sometimes, the bad comes with the good. The good I speak of is the opening of The Merchant House and the re-launch of Need Steet Food, formerly Feed Hot Dog Co. The Merchant House saw the Ice Bar, on Highland Road, transformed from a … Read moreThe Southsea Food Tour – The Merchant House / Need Street Food

The Southsea Food Tour – 6oz Burgers

As I reviewed Two Doors Down last week, it is only appropriate I now review its counterpart, 6oz Burgers. Two doors down from Two Doors Down on Osbourne Road, you will find this quirky burger joint. I ate there on a quiet Tuesday night and took advantage of their weekday ‘meal for two’ offer. This … Read moreThe Southsea Food Tour – 6oz Burgers

The Southsea Food Tour – Two Doors Down

You will find this global street food restaurant and bar on Osbourne Road, and as the name suggests, Two Doors down from its counterpart 6oz Burgers. It’s a small place but has made a huge impression on Portsmouth as, whenever I pass, it is normally always busy. I have tried booking online countless times on … Read moreThe Southsea Food Tour – Two Doors Down

The Southsea Food Tour – The Southsea Deli

The Southsea Deli opened less than two weeks ago and is a unique place in Southsea – perhaps not for the reasons you may think. Before it was the light and airy deli it is now, it was once Jam and Bowler and then briefly an Alice in Wonderland cafe. It is a refreshing addition to … Read moreThe Southsea Food Tour – The Southsea Deli

The Southsea Food Tour – The Harbour Coffee Shop

I have passed The Harbour Coffee Shop countless times on my trips to Commerical Road, but I am shocked that it was only this week I paid it a visit. The cafe, which was once the Music Room, is easily drowned out by fast food shops such as Subway, Burger King and McDonald’s. This is … Read moreThe Southsea Food Tour – The Harbour Coffee Shop

The Southsea Food Tour – Southsea Village

Before it was Southsea Village, 81 Palmerston Road used to be Owen’s. I never went in there myself but, from what I heard, it was the kind of place where you would stick to the floor and if there wasn’t a fight then something was seriously wrong. It was rough and ready and always seemed … Read moreThe Southsea Food Tour – Southsea Village
