“A wonderful lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

Went for lunch with some friends and made a reservation for between 4 and 7 people and although 8 of us turned up, they were able to compensate brilliantly. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our food and although the service was a little slow (we were all quite hungry though!) it was a fantastic time for all and very reasonably priced for the quality of the food.

“Good Food and a Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

We very nearly missed this restaurant as the entrance looked very uninviting. A fresh coat of paint would help! Having said that the standard of food and service was faultless added to the fact that it was worth going there for the view over Southampton Water.

“Bit of an enigma this one”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

I eat at many restaurants and am a competent cook myself. The food was tasty and well portioned but it just lacked that "wow" factor. As an example I recently ate at the Ship Inn in Lymington, prices being very similar. The upshot was I went back to the Ship a further 3 times last month and though the foods I ate were of a comparable fashion to Seashells I could'nt wait to return to the Ship but don't have the same urge in this case. I think the biggest difference was the vegetable although this wasn't the only factor. Given I had a goat cheese starter at both restaurants the Ship's effort was 4-5 star compared to Seashells 3. Sadly I won't be rushing back.
