I've been to this place a few times and you cannot beat the home made cakes. Would definitely recommend checking it out!

Strolling along the seafront from the Royal Beach hotel in Southsea we first found a beautiful rose garden dedicated to the Cockleshell Hero,s from World War 2.Walking a bit further we found The Tenth Hole ,a small café with a 9 hole pitch and putt. We had a lovely pot of tea but the best thing was the fantastic array... More

Went here 29/07/15 for breakfast with wife and daughter. Their full English breakfasts were excellent. I only had a coffee, americano with hot milk - awful, awful, awful! We intend to go again soon to see if the coffee has improved.

I am very glad my friend introduced me to this place. It is a cafe which could be easily missed, as it is off the main seafront strip, but if you are visiting Portsmouth, you must scout it out! However, it is very popular and often quite busy, but this is just an advocate for its delights! The cakes are... More

I was a student from 08 - 12 in Portsmouth and came regularly to the Tenth Hole. I went in today for a reunion coffee with two of my uni pals. The cappuccino I was served looked as though it came out of a ready-made coffee dispenser. It barely resembled the taste of good coffee and was way too milky.... More

Good food (a fairly simple and short menu, super breakfasts), good selection of coffee and tea, and superb cakes. Not the gem it once was but still good. Gets very busy (too busy for me at peak times/season).

Only discovered this place in my last year of uni, it is a hidden gem! Situated along the road from Canoe Lake, it was a nice surprise to stumble across a café that do a dairy-free/vegan cake, they even had dairy-free butter for my sandwich! Very helpful and a very quaint spot. Unfortunately when I went back they had none... More

We have been a few times and the cakes are always scrummy!! I come here knowing that I will be 'naughty' but its worth it now and again. I noticed they did afternoon tea, it also looked good and the young Lady eating it said it tasted as good as it looked!!

Lovely setting for this wonderful tea room which has absolutely amazing cakes on offer, you'll be hard pushed to choose just one! But that's ok because you can take another one home with you. Other food on offer as well, including great quiche.
