Southampton's been very busy the last few months with plenty of restaurant / bars opening up in the city centre having tried The Stable recently another new offerings is *Neighbourhood Southampton opposite Guildhall. Neighbourhood is all about delicious fresh food and great drinks. Their bar is stocked full with everything ranging from internationally sourced craft beers and well kept cask ales to premium spirits and wine. We decided to head down midweek Wednesday to try their £30 deal whole chicken and chips + a growler. Going early is perfect for us these days when it's not as busy as we were taking the little one with us for 5pm dinner.
We were seated soon as we arrived and I picked a corner table as it was easier with the buggy tucked up in the corner just in case it got busy later on. I had no idea they are dog friendly otherwise we would have brought Tula with us. We got given a small pot of pop corn to nibble on while we had a looked through the menu before we settled on the above Feed 3 for £30!
Drinks were brought over quickly nice and chilled....the Krusovice was a perfect pairing with chicken and chips. I sadly opted for the OJ with feeding no alcohol for me! Not long after our food also arrived piping hot! We ordered extra side of corn cob and salad since there was 3 of us and I need some veg in my diet.
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised how tasty the food is and I would go as far as saying I prefer this to our usual Nandos. The chicken was well seasoned and not over cooked so it was nice and moist. Chips were nice and chunky with a sprinkle of peri powder I think and the home made coleslaw was very good. It a nice simple option for midweek and extremely tasty!!!! I would highly recommend you trying this mid week option out if there is a few of you as it's real good value. This is one of those simple dishes that don't look like a lot but if made well it's very good.
If chicken and chips aren't your thing there is plenty of other options to choose from - burgers, fish, steak, pork or ribs or even just nibbles from their bar menu. Neighbourhood Southampton is the perfect place to hang out for the evening after filling your belly...the place is huge and all the seating is nicely spaced out and it's very chilled. We received wonderful service during our meal and I can't wait to go back again with a couple of friends.
