Dining Out Group
  • Last Updated: 5 Apr 2018


Hello and welcome to The Dining Out Group or “ladies wot lunch !”, although we would love to see some more gentlemen join us and please be assured “boys” you will receive a warm welcome.

Sometimes it is a daunting task to dine alone in a restaurant so why not join us and be part of a convivial group and enjoy a good meal and perhaps with a beverage of your choice.

Who doesn’t enjoy a Roast on a Sunday so why not come along and eat one with us? We meet at 12.30pm on every 4th Sunday of the month at restaurants which either incorporate a Sunday lunch or a carvery.

Previous outings have been to:

  • Queens Hotel
  • Toby Carvery
  • The Dolphin
  • White Horse
  • Restaurant 69
  • Carluccio’s


We meet at 12.30pm every 2nd Thursday of the month at various restaurants around the city although mainly in Southsea and Gunwharf Quays. Previous visits have included:

  • Sopranos
  • Cafe Rouge
  • Noble House
  • Rocksby’s
  • Loch Fyne
  • Bella Calabria

There are so many eateries in and around this area sometimes we are spoilt for choice so any new suggestions are welcome.

We have also dined at Southdowns College and Chimes, both of which are catering colleges for the next generation of chefs… so maybe you can say I was there when… !
