Lunch time mooring

Guys

Heading to the Solent for the weekend, and I'm looking for somewhere to moor up for lunch (1-2 hours max), maybe Mudeford, or Portsmouth, or somewhere else (recommendations!)
Is there a resource on the net that shows when short term mornings are, or who has them?

Thanks

Adam

I'm not aware of a single source of info, but as a starting point most marina's will have details online; a short stay is usually up to 4hrs. Here's a couple of examples:

Hamble Point - £9 up to 15m - Ketch Rigger serves very good food

Cowes Yacht Haven - £1.06/m

Berthing

That's just a couple of options, you have LOADS of choice in the Solent

Yarmouth definitely does short stays, quite probably Lymington and most of the other Solent harbours as well. If you're coming over towards Poole, Poole Quay Boat Haven also does short stays, as does Weymouth.

Assuming you're looking for somewhere to walk ashore and go for lunch, and not just a mooring/berth to sit in and eat a picnic or similar?

There's Yarmouth - c. £6.00 for walk ashore..and the Wheatsheaf's nearby.

If not looking to go ashore, just drop the anchor somewhere, or tie up to an occupied buoy.

Yep, go ashore for some lunch.

I will look at some of the above, I know of sparks, they have a restaurant there from memory, (did my PB2 there)

Thanks

Lymington Town Quay is good for mooring, about £6 for 2 hours from memory. Although when we stopped there for dinner last week, the harbour master appeared as we were leaving. I explained we had been there a few hours and how much did he want, he just waved us off without needing to pay.

No restaurant at Sparkes anymore. They were part of Piranha Ribs, who went belly up end of last season.

The Jolly sailor pub at the top of the River Hamble, free mooring but avoid 1-2 hours either side of low water. Town Key in Cowes is always good £1.00 per m walk ashore. The rising Sun Pub at the mouth of the Hamble, free mooring and walk ashore.
