Description: 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.

Meal was good and service willing. I think there were a couple of new waiters the day we were there, so a bit hesitant. In lovely surroundings overlooking boat yard and out to the river beyond.
But we had dogs with us and had to sit in the 'snug' - which we knew - limited views, and with very little dog space between the tables. Waiters stood around waiting for us to settle, but not easy when they were going to be squashed in, or in other people's way. In the end we sat outside, but it wasn't a very warm day!

We had lunch yesterday to celebrate my mothers 70 birthday. It was a surprise lunch with her sister and niece joining us.
I chose this restaurant as we are all fish fanatics and I am a sailer so always happy to be surrounded by boats and close to water.
Easy to find and plenty of parking.
Very friendly staff and accommodating. The menu is small but I think that is great!! Everything is fresh and cooked to order so In busy times you will need to chill out, enjoy the view and wait for a lovely meal.
Great value for money - will definitely be back.
Thank you!

It wasn't an easy place to find as we did not spot that you actually had to enter the private marina.We hadn't booked so there was some deliberation over where we could sit. It is clearly aimed at the people that arrive in the marina in their yachts.
The menu had some fairly elaborate over priced fish dishes, not really what we had been looking for but having taken so long to find it we just wanted to eat.
I was disappointed with my fish, the batter was over cooked, and I'm not a fan of skinny fries, so not for us I'm afraid.

Came here with for lunch with family. Food was very good, hard to find fault quite honestly (and this is from someone who could make a career from it !).
Will definitely go again. Highly recommended.
