Called to check for the weekend. No overnight parking at all anymore. They also said that there was nowhere nearby available to park overnight, evenwith my son’s Blue Badge. Gutted.

We stopped here for one night on arriving in the area. Friendly pub and fairly quiet spot. As previously said make sure you park as near to the pub as you can, some of the car park is council owned. The only disturbance we got was dog walkers and a few cars late on bug nothing to worry about. Lovely view of the water and boats.

Best double check that they are still doing overnight parking we messaged them on facebook a week before we arrived and was told that if you are all self sufficient no problem but after getting there the manager said that they no longer do overnight stays. after showing the message from his boss sarah it was ok to stop,. there are three parts to the car park the gravel one one the left has signs saying that a permit is needed for overnight parking but the manager said that if near the pub ignore

retired couple 8m motorhome.Have visited this site many times since 2017 really enjoyed views and hospitality in pub.Now under new management Colette the manager asked us to leave as motorhomes no longer welcome due to local anti social issues. Green King the owners have decided to ban motorhomes from staying even though troubles at site nothing to do with campers and their vans.We didn't leave informed her that she should put up notices and take site off search for sites, stayed the night but didn't use pub .Shame because right by the estuary and short walk to Southsea.

Great stopover, pub only opened on Monday, food typical pub fayre, staff very helpful and social distance, hygeine stricky adherred to. We took our own cutlery but believe theirs was available, ordered and paid through the Greene King app. And dog friendly. Overnight once the boy racer doing wheelies had gone it was a lovely silent sleep.

Great spot if you like waking up to an estuary/harbour view. Large level car park. Pub is dog friendly and the staff were pleasant and helpful.
Beer kept well, food could be better but am aware others having enjoyed it.

As others have said, very friendly pub, good value food that was surprisingly tasty, great views from the level car park. Pub is Green King, so IPA and Abbot ale on tap, and dog friendly too, great stopover.

We stayed 2 night at the Thatched House. We had a meal on the first night & it was great. We we served by James, who was very helpful & took time to talk rather than just take my money, he was great. As we were leaving we found out it was dog friendly, so you can take your dogs in & sit in a certain area. Next day we went in & met more of the staff, they too were lovely.
What more could you ask for in a stopover than great views, great food & great staff.
I only gave 3 stars for facilities as there are non but toilets when the pub is open

I stopped there for two nights. You cant fault the place. The car park is clean, level and quiet. The estuary is lovely and you even get to see foxes at night. The pub staff were really welcoming and the food/drink there was nice and good value for money. I will be stopping here again.

Stopped here on our way home, went for a short walk around, not to far as misses Left her walking stick in van, car park appears to be in 3 parts, as you drive in from the road there is a parking area (this is pay and display don't park here) go straight towards the pub, you will see a car park to the right (WRONG ONE) turn left immediately behind pub, there are two car park here, park as near to the pub as possible, this is the pubs half of the car park, bottom half is pay and display, (will become as clear as mud when you get there, and there is a lot of mud, in the sea not the car park) Excellent welcome from staff, great variety of drinks, excellent meal good price, I'll be back.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. A really nice location. The carpark is not part of the pub but I ate in there anyway. Food typical pub food but good.
As said before, make sure you park near to pub as half the c p is private with no overnight stopping.
I think there are local buses to various parts of Portsmouth & Southsea? Otherwise it’s an easy cycle rude to Southsea or Gunwharfe quays.
I will certainly stay there again.

Nice level car park, with a great view. Friendly staff directed us to the far side ( un marked ) car park and advised us where to pitch ( some of the carpark is local authority and does not permit overnight motorhome ). We were the only motorhome. The LA carpark included dog waste bins, which is useful ( if you have dogs).
The pub is ultra dog friendly. We ate in the pub, and the food was standard pub grub. All in all a good experience and will visit again if we in the area

After caravanning for years, this was our first motorhome stopover.
We called Sarah a couple of days ago (who was fantastic).. no problems to park in the overflow carpark.
The pub was busy, however, food was fresh, filling and tasty.
A great stop over, we will use it again..

An excellent pub for a stopover prior to ferry crossing then again on return. The staff are very obliging and work hard to make sure everyone is happy. The views are lovely across the estuary especially at night time with light reflections and mornings with the sun rising. Very reasonable, tasty carvery available on Sundays.

Phoned ahead and stayed overnight for an early ferry the next day. Friendly greeting when we arrived, great meal overlooking the water, good value drinks and food. Lovely and peaceful so we had a good night's sleep, ready for an early start. And it's only a 10 min drive to the port. We'll definitely stay here again.

Phoned ahead and found staff friendly and helpful. The pub has a Four Square menu which is fine if you’re looking for something quick to eat. Stayed one night with no charge in the large car park to the left rear side of the pub overlooking the water. It was very quiet and we had a very peaceful night. Lovely view of the sun rise in the morning.
If you visit, be careful as the far end of the car park does not belong to the pub.
Would recommend if you need an overnight stay in Portsmout

We stayed here before catching an early morning ferry from Portsmouth, about 20 mins drive away. We rang beforehand to confirm that they had room for us. What a great pub by the waters edge! We (and friends) had a great meal and evening in the pub. We would definitely stay next time we take the ferry, and during better weather we would take the walk along the coastal path. We were there during the cold snow February/March 2018.

Lovely pub right on the waters edge. Very quiet and peaceful at night. Easy walking or cycling to Southsea. Great dog walks along the shore. Staff very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Great value pub grub, beer and wine. Perfect stop over to see our Daughter run 'The Great South Run'. Would highly recommend.

Excellent overnight stop for Portsmouth Ferry. 17 min from pub to port via circuitous satnav route but easy. Basic car park, plenty of space a Fayer and Square pub, food basic but reasonable- will stay again. On estuary view would be stunning if tide was high.

What a great spot for overnighting before catching the ferry. The Landlord and staff are really friendly and helpful and the facilities and pub grub are great. We missed the turning into the pub as it's set back a bit so watch out for it carefully as the road gets very narrow after! When you get in the entrance turn left in front the of the pub building and park up on the hard standing next to the patio tables 10 feet from the sea. Fantastic views and very quiet and undisturbed.

Phoned up before hand and was told parking is to the left. We were the only 'van there on a Saturday night in July!. We got there too late for food (had a blowout) so just went in for one drink (felt obliged). Stayed for a few more as there was an excellent band on. The parking is right by the water (I'll upload a pic but doesn't seem to be working). Will Definitely stay again when getting the ferry from Portsmouth.
