Featured Emsworth Restaurants
1. Fat Olives British, Modern restaurant in Emsworth 30 South St - PO10
Lawrence & Julia Murphy have operated their “small” and “utterly charming” dining room in a 17th-century fisherman’s cottage above the quay since 2000, building a “strong local following”. It’s “better than a neighbourhood restaurant but not posh” and its “superb cooking, local produce and attention to detail” “can’t be recommended too highly”.
2. 36 on the Quay British, Modern restaurant in Emsworth 47 South St - PO10
This “lovely small restaurant” with rooms, a fixture on the quayside for more than 20 years, has (despite the odd ‘off’ review) seen its ratings revived this year as chef Gary Pearce “has found his feet” in charge of the kitchen. A local boy who trained here from the age of 17, Pearce has worked at some distinguished venues including Le Champignon Sauvage in Cheltenham. He now runs 36 with his wife Martina, with owners Ramon & Karen Farthing in the background.
3. The Deck British, Modern restaurant in Emsworth Emsworth Marina, Thorney Road - PO10
“A lovely new restaurant serving wonderful fresh fish and almost nothing else”. Ed Collison was just 22 when he took over this all-day venue at Emsworth Yacht Harbour two years ago, which enjoys “fantastic views over the marina”. In early 2018 it reopened after a complete overhaul that extended it to 120 covers. (Ed will be at home in the marina, having circumnavigated the world as a sailor in the 2013-14 Clipper Round the World Race; at 18, he was the youngest crewman to complete the voyage).
