The food at Josephine's takes inspiration from the most popular dishes served in The Philippines. On the menu you can expect to find stuffed crab, crispy pork belly and beef in peanut sauce, all served by a warm and welcoming team of Filipino natives. Jason Atherton is said to be a big fan of Josephine's, choosing to chow down on the pork lechon when he stops by.

If you looking for an authentic Filipino place, then please give this place a miss, not only will you be disappointed but you will leave somewhat poorer for the experience We popped in based on a board offering a 2 course menu which looked great as a quick pre theatre snack for £11. As we proceeded to order, we were told that it's only for lunch despite it being 6pm,not having times or the word lunch on it. False advertising or a clever marketing ploy I will leave you to decide. Our authentic Filipino appetisers were awful, not only was it more chines than Filipino. The pork tasted stale, the calamari and chicken skewers had seen better days. The mains were equally disappointing, a large stuffed squid filled with overlooked seafood and a sugary sauce, my roasted pork tasted ok but it's accompanying sauce remained largely untouched, it's was a rather poor attempt at apple sauce. On a scorcher of a day the last thing One wants is a warm glass of wine but to my "delight" that's exactly what I got. The food was an absolute shocker and the bill even more so, £62 for 2 mains a shared platter of starters and 2 small house wines pineapple juice and a 7up.
