Portsmouth Hen Party Guide – Eating Out
Restaurant 27 is the place to go if you fancy a night of fine dining, a delicious British menu and exceptional service. Quite pricey, but if you can’t treat yourself to a five star meal on your hen night, when can you? If you’d prefer to start the night off with a curry, we can’t recommend Spice Merchants on Osborne Road enough. They pride themselves on cooking all your favourite Indian dishes but in a healthier way, no pools of oil in your curry here! There are plenty more restaurants to choose from in Portsmouth including all your high street favourites like Wagamama, Strada and Nandos that won’t break the bank but will sufficiently line your stomach for the night of revelry ahead. Whatever meal you choose, a couple of homemade chocolates will be the perfect finish and our chocolate making hen party will leave you with a few left over. A naked chocolatier will be their to assist if you fancy.
