Welcome aboard The Lightship at Haslar Marina

The relaxed way to eat, drink and meet 

on the water.

Welcome to the Lightship at Haslar, now with a new outdoor area on the Pontoons ideal for lazy summer nights or lively party occasions.

We look forward to seeing you for brunch, lunch and dinner or even just a drink and a chat with friends while you watch the sun go down over Portsmouth Harbour.

We have an area set aside for visiting boaters, when using the venue, and this can be reserved on our booking system

We’re creating the perfect waterside venue with freshly prepared good food, great drinks and a friendly team.

FOOD

Our menu is based around great fresh ingredients cooked simply, with care and skill.

The Menu changes through the day parts and will include daily fresh dishes, particularly fish, but if there is something you might want for your special occasion –  don’t be afraid to ask when you book.

DRINKS

Like our food, we are excited to be able to present some different wines, spirits and even have our own Coastline Lager.

Coffee

Just want to relax with a coffee, come in and try our great range teas and coffees. If your feeling peckish, try our cake of the day.

Cocktails

Not everyone can be great at everything, so we keep our cocktail list short and sweet with all our bar team knowing it inside out. If you have a favourite that is not on the list, just ask. We aren’t shy and we’ll give it a try!

Unwind and join us for any occasion, from brunch to dinner, or even just a drink and a chat with friends or perhaps a sundowner and nibbles on our balcony.

Rules for Public Access

The Lightship and its outside bar areas sit within Haslar Marina and public access therefore needs to be managed to ensure the safety and security of everyone. The public access is only granted based on individuals agreeing to comply with the guidelines below. All public using the restaurant and bar areas must make a booking on our online system so that we have contact details for everyone in case of any incidents.

The Haslar Marina Teams’ commitment to safety is every bit as important as our commitment to excellence. There can be no compromise with safety and as such, the following guidelines must be adhered to when visiting the Lightship. If there are any questions or doubts, then please ask before going onto the marina.

Please do:

· Wear sensible shoes to minimise the risk of slipping or catching heals on the walkways Request access at the north gate and follow the instructions given

· Ensure any children are properly supervised at all times when on the marina.

· Be mindful of the tides on the South coast. This will alter the incline on the access ramps, making them steeper on a low tide.

· Be aware of the cleats and other trip hazards at the edge of the walkways and walk centrally down the pontoons.

· Be considerate of boat owners and other guests, particularly with regards to noise when leaving.

· Adhere to all signage on the marina.

· Identify yourself to the host when you arrive at the venue

Please do not:

· Wear leather soled or high heeled shoes on the pontoons, as the pontoons can become very slippery; particularly when wet or iced over.

· Climb on any building structures.

· Run or indulge in ‘horseplay’.

· Get over intoxicated whilst on the Marina.

· Push anybody in trolleys.

· Board any of the vessels moored within the Marina.
