“Delightful waterside setting for smart contemporary dishes.” - AA Inspector
A walk down though the village to the harbour will bring you to this 17th-century building, the perfect setting for a charming and long-running restaurant-with-rooms. It’s a great place to watch the sun go down – have a drink outside in the courtyard before heading in to the bright, airy dining room. The menus deliver contemporary interpretations of classic dishes and flavour combinations; tasting menus – ‘8 Moments’ – are available at both lunch and dinner. Cured gurnard, apple, radish and ponzu make a great opener, followed by Anjou squab pigeon, beetroot, blueberries and cassis jus. The cinnamon baked cheesecake, apple and elderflower is a tempting way to finish.

About the area
Hampshire’s varied landscape of hills and heaths, downlands and forests, valleys and coast is without rival in southern England. Combine these varied landscapes and terrains with secluded and idyllic villages, complete with thatched and timber-framed cottages and Norman churches, elegant Georgian market towns, historic ports and cities, restored canals and ancient abbeys, forts and castles, and you have a county that is paradise for lovers of the great outdoors.
If you’re a walker, stride out across the high, rolling, chalk downland of the north Hampshire ‘highlands’ with far-reaching views, walk through steep, beech-clad ‘hangers’ close to the Sussex border. Or perhaps take a gentler stroll and meander along peaceful paths through unspoilt river valleys, etched by the sparkling trout streams of the Test, Itchen, Avon and Meon. Alternatively, wander across lonely salt marshes and beside fascinating coastal inlets or, perhaps, explore the beautiful medieval forest and heathland of the New Forest, the jewel in Hampshire’s crown.
