We stayed in Southampton overnight prior to going on a cruise.As we were staying across the road it made sense to try this restaurant. The inside was more like a pub serving food but the food was just excellent. The fish was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented and my husband had the duck which was so tender. Even the desserts... More

Well. What can I say, I was thoroughly impressed with my experience at the Dock 'o The Bay. The decor and layout is cute and modest, staff were lovely, welcoming and attentive and the food was incredible. The menu was very varied and well priced, service was quick and didn't disappoint. Id go back in a heart beat

We had a good Sunday lunch here a while ago so decided to pop back for a local Friday dinner out. We booked a table for 730pm and arrived to find a nice bustle of people around the bar. We quickly got taken to our table up in the dining area. It was clean and tidy with a nice cosy... More

Went here recently whilst on a visit to Southampton. Had heard good reviews so decided to give it a go. Bigger inside than you think and a nice atmosphere. Friendly welcome on arrival. We shared a goat's cheese starter. Delicious. Next course we both had belly pork,again delicious. We were too full to have dessert. We both had a glass... More

Had a business lunch here as it was conveniently placed. Haven't been for a few years and not sure why. It was a good as I remember. We had burger and mussels, which were all excellent and the coffee was lovely too. Bridget and the staff were all very efficient and friendly and it has a nice, relaxed atmosphere. Reasonably...

An informal bar setting with a hum of activity creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere in this great little restaurant. The service is informal,friendly and yet totally efficient. There is a good selection of dishes including an excellent belly of pork, interesting and imaginative fish dishes and scrumptious puddings. There is a good range of wine as well as an... More

Visited here on a Sunday, I had soup & a fish finger sandwich which were both delish. They have a good selection of drinks, especially tea & alcoholic drinks. Staff could not do more to help, lovely experience, will be visiting again.

I ate here with my cousins following a very long charity walk so we definitely did all courses of the menu justice. The duck starter salad was very very good as were the moules, we followed that up with seabass fillets, a vegetarian lasagne and pork belly which all went down a treat, and we're well cooked and presented We...
