We opened our doors for the very first time on April 1st 2015. Since then we have received an overwhelming amount of support and encouragement from our customers and have therefore managed to establish ourselves as one of Southsea’s most popular dining destinations. We are very fortunate to be in such a fantastic location which is attractive to our guests all year round for different reasons. In the summer our outside courtyard is filled with sunshine and is a beautiful spot for one of our famous sharing platters and a chilled glass of wine in the early evening. In the winter the restaurant is toasty warm and a wonderful place to go for a cosy meal after a cold walk along the seafront.

With an emphasis on ‘cooking from scratch’ our aim is to continue to use the best seasonal and local ingredients, to create a friendly and relaxed experience for all our customers and to be flexible with accommodating specific dietary requirements. This includes offering gluten free cakes and dishes, vegan dishes and healthy children’s options. We welcome families with young children and have space for buggies, as well as offering baby changing facilities.

The Courtyard is available for private hire for parties and corporate events as well as weddings. We cater exclusively for all weddings at Southsea Castle using the same fresh and local ingredients.

Our increasingly popular high teas are 100% homemade and are perfect for special occasions such as birthdays, hen parties or mother’s day.

We also offer top quality Sunday Roasts throughout the winter with a ‘warm weather twist’ on the classic roast for the summer months.

We hope to see you there soon!
