Quaint and classy this is a fabulous venue to indulge in an authentic vintage high tea experience with delicious homemade food and excellent, friendly service. A massive thank you to Julia, Steve and your lovely ladies for looking after us all so well – even though we added a small dog and a few extra bodies in at the last... More

We put on a little one-day art, music and poetry festival in the Square Tower. It was the ideal venue for all sorts of reasons. We're going to do another one on 4 May 2015. This is a unique venue. It is used for weddings, which must be just wonderful, music events - check out the Square Roots promotions evenings... More

The wedding of our son took place here on 25th September. He and his wife also had their reception here. The organisation by Steve and his wife was excellent and everything was done professionally but in a calm and relaxed way. Everyone enjoyed the whole experience. Would definitely recommend the Square Tower.

Our son got married here and stayed for the reception. Fantastic venue, friendly staff. Little touches like a collection of homely china for the tea, together with china homely teapots. Lovely!

The Hampshire branch of the British Red Cross based in Portsmouth held its inaugural 'Swishing' event here. We wanted the event to be classy and exciting with atmosphere and a degree of panache. A village hall wouldn't do and hotels cost a fortune and can lack atmosphere. The Square Tower ticked all our boxes. It has 'atmosphere' in spades and... More

I am getting married here in 2015, and have visited several times for planning, showing relatives the location, etc, as well as having been to several of the craft fairs/vintage pop up tea days. The enthusiasm of Steve and his team/family is second to none, they have always made us feel welcome, valued and special. They are working hard to... More

Was invited to a fantastic medieval banquet here. They do them from time to time with all the frills and you can hire them for your wedding/stag night/club or society party etc. The organisers provided costumes if you couldn't find one of your own, and all the entertainment, which included: crossbow, archery, medieval ball games and dancing. The bar was... More
