Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
44 London Road, Widley, Portsmouth, PO7 5AG
The Hampshire Rose is a family-run business and was completely refurbished in 2008. It specialises in providing homemade, freshly cooked food using locally sourced ingredients, and the menu comprises a mix of traditional and modern dishes, all prepared from scratch. The extensive selection includes robust starters such as homemade soup and filled potato skins, and for mains there are traditional British classics such as bangers and mash or fish and chips, alongside European dishes such as pesto and sun-blushed tomato tagliatelle. The weekly specials board boasts the chef's newest mouth-watering creations, and a selection of scrumptious desserts is offered daily - homemade fruit crumble and chocolate fudge cake are favourites with the regulars. To complement your meal there is a selection of coffees, fine wines and real ales. As well as the main menu there are lighter bites and a children's menu to choose from, together with special promotions such as lunchtime offers and OAP specials. A buffet menu is available for functions. The Hampshire Rose is one of the largest pubs in Portsmouth, and there are three dining areas to choose from - a modern, relaxing bar area with a real fire, the high-ceilinged formal restaurant and the family bar. In the summer months the pretty garden area is also open; so, come rain or shine, your visit to this pub is bound to be rosy.
