Francey, Mike and the crew excelled themselves this time, we had our work Christmas do in the Rat on Thursday evening last. The food was superb, everything cooked to perfection and the service was brilliant as always.
The Beef looked amazing, and though my traditional Christmas dinner was delicious, I did have some food envy!
Thanks Mike, Francey, Chef Fay and the rest of the crew for a lovely night.

Since the River Rat has been open, we have visited on a fairly regular basis. never once have we been let down. We went with Saturday evening, although the place was very busy, the food and service were excellent. Being a big wine drinker, have to say the wine list is great. A large selection of quality wine to suit every budget. Even their basic house red is heads and shoulders above anything else you can get in the village. We left full and very happy.

Great value at £15.95 for two courses with a glass of house wine at £2.50. Not much of an atmosphere as we ate early but very nice inside. Attentive host will certainly be going back.

River Rat is definitely the nicest restaurant in Hamble. Great for small groups of friends or intimate cosy dinners. The food is excellent and the Monday-Wednesday prix fixe menu is unbeatable value.

I ate here with my boyfriend and 2 other couples on a Monday, we all had 2 courses from the prix fixe as well as 3 bottles of wine between us (particularly nice wine too!) and it came to £60 per couple - a bargain!

The quality of ingredients is excellent, presentation lovely, service is attentive but not overwhelming and the wine list is excellent. Even the house wine is great! Definitely I'll be back and happy to recommend.
