It's not exclusive, open to all and very popular. We popped in for a coffee and drinks and must say the atmosphere was great. Will certainly be going back.

Our waterfront bar & restaurant offers unrivalled views over Lymington and the Solent, making it the perfect spot for a drink, bite to eat or a quality evening meal. Located at the beautiful Lymington Yacht Haven on the edge of the New Forest, our friendly team are ready to provide a warm welcome whether you arrive by sea, road, foot or bicycle. As well as a relaxed and comfortable lounge and bar area, our first floor terrace is one of the finest on the South Coast with spectacular views spanning over the marina, the Solent and to the Isle of Wight. We’re open from 8am every day serving freshly cooked food and delicious homemade treats. From Sailor’s breakfasts, to light bites, lunches and dinners, we’re sure you’ll find something tempting on our menu. We strive to use locally-sourced, seasonal produce as much as possible. As well as using a range of New Forest ingredients and serving locally-made beers and ales, our Specials Menu changes weekly based on the latest catch and crop.
