Is this venue RIB-friendly?

Most certainly. Used by many RIBNET members. Phone first to check food times. Parking/Berthing can cost about a fiver. Its a nice place to go but can get very busy. Also watch out for a nasty piece of twisted metal sticking out about half way along the visitor pontoon.
Good place to fly your RIBNET Burgee.

We have visited the lightship on a number of occasions. The food and drinks are very reasonably priced and if you sit upstairs you get a great view of the Harbour. They have their own pontoon and I have never been asked to pay. It has always been quiet when I have visited compared to the other popular food and drink stops.

Neil, you were very lucky to get away without paying. Haslar Marina charge £7.00 for a short stay and a staff member comes around to collect the fee. Sometimes ones gets away without paying. You are quite right it is a great place for a meal and drink.
